Rita Ora Finally Unveils Her Sheer Lace Wedding Dress 1 Year Later
Better late than never. Exactly one year after Rita Ora and Taika Waititi quietly tied the knot in Los Angeles on Aug. 4, 2022, the couple shared never-before-seen photos from the special day with Vogue, offering a first look at Ora’s gorgeous wedding dress.
“I was looking for something that was going to feel unique and a bit unexpected.”
The singer chose the final look from Tom Ford’s fall 2020 runway show, a sheer lace one-shoulder gown that’s right in line with her edgy fashion sense. The dress was made of see-through netted material covered with lace appliqué in contrasting animal prints, and large white bows decorated both the waist and shoulder. “I was looking for something that was going to feel unique and a bit unexpected, which is why I went for the one shoulder and the lace,” Ora told Vogue. She had her eye on the design for years, and after spotting it in her exact size at a Tom Ford shop, she knew it was meant to be.
Ora accessorized with a simple, floor-sweeping veil; white peep-toe platform pumps; Lorraine Schwartz jewelry; and, of course, her stunning emerald engagement ring. She and Waititi exchanged matching gold wedding bands by Lorraine Schwartz during the ceremony.
After photographer Jack Gorlin captured plenty of wedding-dress snaps in front of the Hollywood sign, Ora changed into two more Tom Ford looks at her reception – the first, a white long-sleeved dress with a ruffled neckline and back slit, and later on, a white tie-front top with a sheer lace bralette and matching flared pants. The latter look fit right in alongside the Elvis impersonator their friend hired to perform at the party.
