Rita Ora was just one of the stars who stole the spotlight on the 2023 Met Gala red carpet. On May 1, Ora arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in a sheer Prabal Gurung corset dress with a dramatic train. The tulle gown was composed of pleated silk chiffon and hand-embroidered silk organza embellished with satin flowers. As she walked alongside the well-dressed crowd, including her husband, Taika Waititi, Ora couldn’t help but show off her romantic — yet edgy — ensemble from all angles.
The top of the dress featured a low-cut sweetheart neckline with asymmetrical, off-the-shoulder sleeves that trailed off into a 15-foot train studded with satin roses. Across her waist, strips of black fabric created a wrap illusion broken up by sheer panels. At her right side, the sheer cutout dipped past her butt.
The cutout revealed her hip tattoo and plunged into a ruffled skirt adorned with shimmering floral appliqués. Ora’s dress cutout also showcased her toned abs and arms, which she’s been working on in the gym for weeks. She styled the outfit with black platforms, stacked bangles in multiple shades, and a wild set of chain nails that nearly draped down to the floor.
In the weeks leading up to the gala, Ora experimented with several revealing looks, including an ab-baring leather midi skirt during a press day in London on April 20. A day earlier, she wore a backless Prada minidress. The same month, she stepped out in a micro miniskirt and black leather cowboy boots. Ora certainly isn’t afraid to bring the drama to her wardrobe, and her Met Gala look is no exception.
