Rita Ora Wore Elie Saab Couture to the Thor: Love and Thunder Premiere with Taika Waititi


Rita Ora chose all-out sequins in an Elie Saab dress to make a statement on the red carpet yesterday at the Thor: Love and Thunder London premiere this week. The British singer accompanied the film’s director and her rumored fiancé Taika Waititi at the Odeon Luxe in Leicester Square, dressed in a dazzling couture number by the Lebanese designer.

Picked from the Beirut-based label’s Spring 2022 couture collection by stylist Karen Langley, Ora’s look made a case for classic red carpet glamour as it came dripping in silver embellishment. The long-sleeved piece featured a plunging neckline and metallic fringes all over the flattering skirt which came with a thigh-high slit. The former Vogue Arabia cover star accessorized the dress with silver platform pumps and dainty necklace earrings, shown off via a sleek high bun.


Elie Saab happens to be a red carpet favorite of Ora, who has been spotted wearing the brand’s sumptuous pieces on a number of occasions. Earlier this year, the 31-year-old attended the 2022 Critics’ Choice Awards with Waititi, wearing another couture dress by Elie Saab, but this time, in maroon velvet with bold cut-outs. The brand was also favored by the actor at the 70th Cannes Film Festival, where she wore a beaded floor-grazing dress from Elie Saab’s 2017 couture collection.
