Rita Ora

Rita Ora ruled the amfAR gala during Milan Fashion Week with no less than three stunning outfit changes.

Rita Ora had some way to go to follow Jennifer Lopez’s sensational catwalk cameo at Versace on Friday but the British singer gave it her best shot with no less than three stunning outfit changes at the amfAR gala during Milan Fashion Week.

And the look that really got the flashbulbs popping was a custom design by the star’s favourite fashion house, Prada.

Look #1: Sequins and Ruffles

The Anywhere star, 28, swept into the celebrity-stacked Palazzo Mezzanotte in an ethereal white fishtail gown dotted with silver and white sequin crystal appliqués. Pleated tulle sleeves and a densely jewelled collar gave Ora a distinctly regal look that signalled she was queen for the night. 

Look #2: Sleek and Sharp

Ora changed into a tailored red jumpsuit and sheer white shirt custom made by Escada to perform at the even, which raises money for amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.

Look #3: Party Time

The star finished off the evening in a shimmering red long-sleeve midi top and floor-length skirt with matching knotted hairband custom made by Escada. 

She was joined at the gala by catwalk heavyweights Joan Smalls, Candice Swanepoel and Toni Garnn. Smalls, 31, lit up the event in a floor-length yellow satin Cong Tri gown.

British fashion stars Lottie Moss and Kitty Spencer opted for a different style of party dress, both choosing hip-enhancing strapless ballgowns worn with their hair sleeked back and centre-parted.

The 21-year-old model evoked old Hollywood glamour in pink silk and tulle, cinched at the waist with a diamante belt buckle. She accessorised the dress with gold and diamond jewels worth £76,000 by William and Son.

Spencer, niece of the late Princess Diana, shone in a custom Dolce & Gabbana corset gown with leopard print panels and brocade detailing. A gold snake necklace finished off the look.

The 28-year-old model and face of luxury Italian jewellery designer Bulgari auctioned a pair of earrings at the event, raising £50,000 for the charity.
