She likes to push the boundaries when it comes to fashion and accessories, not always getting it quite right. And on Monday Rita Ora raised a few eyebrows as she left Manchester Academy following the opening night of her Radioactive tour. Despite opting for a bizarre bespectacled look, which included a pair of double lens sunglasses by Jeremy Scott from The Village Bicycle Boutique there was no hiding her bullet shaped ring, which could be seen to glorify gun use and violence.
The silver ring is likely to draw comparisons to Rihanna, who Rita has often been compared to. Not shy of a bit of controversy Rihanna seemingly has somewhat of an obsession with guns and is regularly seen wearing gun related accessories, as well as having a firearm tattooed on her ribcage. While Rita often wears interesting outfits, this is the first time she has worn something fire arm related.
British Rita wore the large bullet ring as she left the venue dressed all in red, including red tinted sunglasses. As she stopped to great guests who had waited for her after her show, the piece of jewellery was on display for all her fans to see as they gave her gifts. The bullet ring came after she was seen on stage in metallic basque and a dagger shaped necklace.
The £180 LeiVanKash necklace is one she wears regularly but again appears to glorify violence somewhat. Rita’s elaborate and somewhat daring stage costumes were designed by Emilio Pucci and aim to capture her ‘urban glamour’ style. For her tour the label reinterpreted key themes from the Spring/ Summer 2013 collection. Speaking about creating the looks Peter Dundas said: ‘I was thrilled to design the costumes for Rita’s ‘Radioactive Tour’, from the moment I met Rita we’ve had a great connection and doing something like this together felt like only a natural progression.
‘The costumes have impact and flamboyance in a way that feels personal to Rita whilst staying true to the Emilio Pucci aesthetic.’ Rita will be performing across the country before finishing her tour in Birmingham next month. – Dailymail
