The annual British Fashion Awards returned to Royal Albert Hall on Monday in a celebration of fashion, art and culture. The lavish red carpet affair attracts an impressive celebrity-fuelled guest list with the likes of Naomi Campbell, Tilda Swinton and Florence Pugh all in attendance overnight. Rita Ora, a regular A-lister of the evening, also made an appearance fusing costume with couture.

Ora stepped out at the historical venue in a barely-there Nensi Dojaka midi dress (the designer was nominated for the BFC Foundation Award). Attached to a tiny red bralette was a sheer red skirt which left little to the imagination except a tiny red G-string and the singer’s razor cut abs. It certainly gives Megan Fox at the VMAs a run for her money.

But it wasn’t just her teeny tiny dress that turned heads, but a subtle detail in her makeup. Look closely and you’ll notice that nude fish scales, almost gills, was attached to Ora’s flawless base alongside bleach brows and a red lip stain. Her look was finished with perfect beachy blonde waves. Mermaid-core at its finest.
