We interrupt your Met Gala coverage to bring you another naked Rita Ora look with a surprising workwear twist. On Sunday, the singer was seen braving the New York City rain in black fringed short shorts with a matching floor-length blazer and a white button-up with dramatic collar, both of which she wore open to reveal her midsection and layered pendant necklaces.

She added stud earrings, wire sunglasses, black platform sandals, and a matching Chanel tote bag. Her hair was slicked into a curly ponytail, and she added a vibrant orange-red lipstick.

Earlier on Sunday, Ora paid homage to Karl Lagerfeld ahead of the 2023 Met Gala in a black, white, and pink corset designed by the Lagerfeld in 2013. Ora showed off the frilly piece on Instagram with a series of snaps writing, "In memory of Karl I had to bring back this custom piece he made me for a Chanel show performance I did with him in Monaco back in 2013. See you tomorrow!!"

On Monday evening, Ora arrived at the 2023 Met in a sheer black Prabal Gurung gown with floral appliqués and two super long chiffon tails. She accessorized with stacked bangles, a smattering of rings, and strings of jewels and pearls dripping from her nails. Her caramel hair was parted down the middle and styled in voluminous curls.
