You animal! Rita Ora wows on the GQ Men Of The Year Awards red carpet in backless yellow and black zebra print dress
She might not be performing at tonight’s event, but Rita Ora’s black and yellow strip dress was a performance in itself as she hit the red carpet at the GQ Men of the Year Awards.
The 22-year-old Kosovan beauty stunned as she showed off her enviable curves in the backless yellow and black zebra print frock.
Excited about one of the most hotly-anticipated nights on the fashion calendar, Rita tweeted: ‘GQ Awards were on our way! Thank you the best makeup artist in the world @eosborne_makeup love you!!’

Rita’s Twitter post paid tribute to her make-up artist for the night, Emma Osborne, a lady whose work regularly features in publications including Elle, Esquire, GQ, Harpers Bazaar, and also has a host of celebrity clients including Alexa Chung and Ellie Goulding.
The Hot Right Now singer accompanied her look with a pair of spiral black and gold earrings, and a hand full of chunky gold rings.
Her intricate make-up design drew a thin pencil line around the middle of her eyelid, but kept the rest simple with some nude lip gloss and face shimmer.

Rita quiffed her short blonde locks into an elegant style especially for the occasion, complementing the cut-out black and yellow zebra striped dress perfectly.
After owning the red carpet, Rita was later spotted conversing with Russell Brand and Noel Gallagher and looked to be having a detailed conversation, with Rita bringing her fingers together to imply that something was small.
The trend-setting star has hardly stopped performing on the festival circuit this summer, and who also managed to find time to squeeze in her boyfriend, world-famous DJ Calvin Harris.

With best friends like model Cara Delevingne and R’n’B star Rihanna constantly upping the ante, it’s only natural Rita would have developed a signature stylish look of her own.
And it seems people are taking notice, with the star recently chosen as the new face of pop royalty Madonna and daughter Lourdes’ clothing line, Material Girl.
Rita recently cited fellow trendy blonde popstar Gwen Stefani as her fashion icon – and the two do certainly share a similar style.
