Recreate Rita Ora’s Met Gala Look

Gothic Chic – Recreate Rita Ora’s Met Gala Look


Wherever she goes, Rita Ora certainly knows how to make an entrance! The Met Gala 2018 showed off an array of stunning looks based on the theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”, and Rita was no exception. Going all-out in a sheer black dress by Prada, beautypress shows you how to recreate her hair and makeup look…

Mane Attraction.

Rita Ora let her crown do the talking – Hair Stylist Brent Lawler created an exuberant headpiece which paired perfectly with flowing bleach-blonde tresses. How to get the look:
  • Wash hair using a special shampoo for colored hair
  • Deep condition it and apply a mask to make for optimum hydration
  • Prepping products – the roots have to be not too sleek in order to let the headpiece stay in place all night, so after blow drying it’s a good idea to add a sprayable powder
  • Blow dry hair in sections using a barreled brush and then straighten the sections for a completely sleek look.
  • Finish off with a serum for glossy shine and  a touch of hairspray to avoid flyaways. 


Rita’s beauty look was simple as to not offset the crown headpiece – her medium complexion means she doesn’t need to apply a huge amount of makeup to achieve a glowing look, so avoid a heavy base! A good cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine means that she just needed a little foundation to touch up. Cheeks were illuminated with a dab of highlighter to accompany a soft golden eye look, achieved by blending a bronze shade across the whole eyelid and finishing off with black waterproof mascara.
In terms of the lip, Rita opted for a hot pink…simply line the lips first to create definition, before filling in with two coats of lip stick. Rita opted for a muted matte lip, achieved by blotting between the first and second coat of color.

Finish the overall makeup look with a makeup setting mist and you’re ready to go!
