Rita Ora Goes Wild in Neon Leopard Minidress, Diamond-Encrusted Heels at MTV VMAs Pre-Party

Rita Ora made sure to stand out for her appearance at the 2018 MTV VMAs Kick-Off Concert at Terminal 5 in NYC last night. So how exactly did the “Anywhere” pop star stun the crowd? Well, she hit the stage in a head-to-toe neon leopard-print ensemble by Tom Ford, that’s how.

Performing alongside former One Direction star Liam Payne, who rocked Air Max sneakers for the occasion — the British songstress showed off a wild, eye-catching creation plucked straight from the American designer’s spring ’18 runway show at New York Fashion Week. The all-over animal print look for fall comes with a sequined high-neck long-sleeve minidress, matching stockings and satin slingback kitten heels featuring a diamond-covered heel and a diamond toe detail.

The 27-year-old superstar took to Instagram today to share several snaps of her outfit for the night, giving Ford a shout-out. She captioned the post, “Felt venomous last night at the @vmas kick off party in NYC 🐍🐍🐍 look by the incredible @tomford.”

Ora accessorized with the same chunky bejeweled cuff the Tom Ford model wore on the catwalk.

Don’t miss out on the 2018 MTV VMAs tonight at 9 p.m. ET with the pre-show starting at 8 p.m.
