Rita Ora flashes a sparkling silver band on her engagement finger

Rita Ora flashed a sparkling silver band on her engagement finger as she cosied up to her beau Taika Waititi at the 2021 Met Gala in New York on Monday night.

The singer, 30, flashed her abs in a sequined crop top and matching long skirt from Prada as she dazzled during her first red carpet appearance with the producer, 46.

She showed off her taut stomach and incredible figure in the skimpy outfit which was adorned with sequins at the event where the theme was In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.

The Met Gala is finally back after being cancelled in 2020 amid the pandemic. This year it was pushed to September from its traditional slot on the first Sunday in May.

The theme is In America: A Lexicon of Fashion and the event features a heavy-hitting contingent of celebrity co-chairs: actor Timothée Chalamet, musician Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis star Naomi Osaka.

Band: She wore an engagement ring on her finger

Honorary chairs for the evening will be designer Tom Ford, sponsor Instagram’s Adam Mosseri, and Vogue’s Anna Wintour.

At just 19, Billie will make history as the youngest ever co-chair of the prestigious event.

When the hosts were first announced, Vogue magazine said: ‘Each of the Met’s four co-hosts embodies the defining factor of American style: individualism.

‘[They have each] developed a distinct visual language for their public personas, one that is informed by the legacy of iconic fashion made in the USA.’

The must-have accessory for all at this year’s gala is a Covid-19 vaccine.  

‘Currently, all attendees at The Met Gala on September 13 must provide proof of full vaccination and will also be expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking,’ a spokesperson for The Met said last month. 

She showed off her taut stomach and incredible figure in the skimpy outfit which was adorned with sequins at the event where the theme was In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. 

This year’s gala will be a more intimate affair, to be followed by a larger one on May 2, 2022. Both will launch a two-part exhibition, a survey of American fashion to be on view for almost a year.

In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, opening Sept. 18, will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the museum´s Costume Institute and ‘explore a modern vocabulary of American fashion,’ the spokesperson added. 

Part two, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, will open in the museum’s popular American Wing period rooms on May 5, 2022, and will explore American fashion, with collaborations with film directors, by ‘presenting narratives that relate to the complex and layered histories of those spaces.’ Both parts will close on Sept. 5, 2022.

Queen & Slim filmmaker Melina Matsoukas has been commissioned to create an open-ended film to project in the galleries, with content changing during the course of the exhibition.

The gala is a major fundraiser, providing the Costume Institute with its primary source of funding.

As always, the exhibits will be the work of star curator Andrew Bolton. Bolton has previously noted how challenging the past year had been for the fashion community.

‘It’s been incredibly inspiring to see how designers have responded to the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, how they’ve found new outlets to express their creativity and new ways to present their collections,’ he said.

Bolton added that many designers had been at the vanguard of the discussion about diversity and inclusion: ‘The social justice movements of last summer reinforced their commitment to these issues and also consolidated their leadership in advancing the conversation.’

In addition to Matsoukas, other confirmed collaborators from the film world include cinematographer Bradford Young, whose projects have included ‘Selma’ and ‘When They See Us;’ production designers Nathan Crowley and Shane Valentino; and Franklin Leonard, film executive and founder of The Black List, a listing of top unproduced screenplays.
