Rita Ora looks like a lampshade as she gets ready to perform at Mardi Gras in Sydney

RITA Ora pushed the fashion boundaries in Sydney today as she stepped out in an avant-garde ensemble that resembled a lampshade.

The Hot Right now singer, 30, is known for her head-turning looks on the red carpets and at glitzy soirees prior to the pandemic.

Yet, Rita's latest high-fashion ensemble looked more décor than designer as she prepared to celebrate Mardi Gras Down Under.

The Masked Singer UK judge was sure to turn heads in her show-stopping silver patterned jumpsuit, which she teamed with a large matching fringe-trimmed hat.

Rita rounded off her striking look with bold green eyeshadow and statement drop-earrings.

The British singer's appearance comes ahead of her performance at this year’s Mardi Gras Parade at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday, March 6.

The chart-topper is currently sunning it up Down Under after flying from her home in London to judge The Voice Australia.

The songstress spent 14 days in hotel quarantine before she was allowed to explore the Aussie sights amid lockdown rules.

Joining Rita on the panel is Keith Urban, Guy Sebastian and Jessica Mauboy.

Aside from work, the former X Factor judge was seen swimming in Sydney Harbour this week – with a mystery man in tow.


The star appears to be over her UK lockdown-flouting drama – when she broke the rules to attend her 30th birthday party at a restaurant in west London in November.

She later apologised in a statement which read she was “deeply sorry” and “takes full responsibility” for her actions.

Last month, Dancing On Ice was hit by Ofcom complaints from furious fans are allowing lockdown rule breaker Rita to perform.

Viewers slammed the ITV show for allowing the star to perform after she flouted Covid restrictions more than once during the pandemic.

Rita performed new single Bang Bang on the show’s Valentine’s Day special on – sparking fury among DOI fans on Twitter.

One fumed: "Very disappointed by #dancingonice choosing to have rita ora on tonight after she broke lockdown rules think it shows poor judgement and looks like itv condone her breaking the law."
