Rita Ora And Cara Delevingne Join Karl Lagerfeld In Monaco And Ditch The Street Wear For Burlesque And Ladylike Chanel

25 March 2013 by

Last week we revealed how Rita Ora is channeling Gwen Stefani's Harajuku style, but now it seems she's taking her cues from burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese. The RIP singer flew from Tokya to Monaco via London on Friday to perform an extra special set alongside American rapper Theophilus London at the Bal De La Rose Du Rocher in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation. While she arrived in Monte Carlo wearing her signature beanie hat, oversized jacket and trainers, after a fitting with Karl Lagerfeld Rita was transformed into a glamorous cabaret performer in a white and black bustier with a train of pink netting designed by the Chanel Creative Director.

The bleach blonde songstress was clearly thrilled to be part of the event as she posted pictures of herself with the fashion designer along with the caption "Tonight's going to be fun. #karl". What made the occasion even more enjoyable for Rita was having her "wifey", Cara Delevingne in the wing to watch her performance. The model also ditched her usual street wear look, stepping out on stage in an intricate white Chanel dress to make a speech. She also shared photos on Instagram, including a snap in the car en route to the dinner as well as a picture of herself with Rita and their stylist friend Kyle Devolle hung up on a rail of clothes which she dubbed the "Monaco Clique".

This isn't the first time that the friends have been given the nod of approval by Fairy Godfather Karl. Rita attended Chanel's Haute Couture Spring Summer 2013 presentation at Paris Fashion Week in January where she watched Cara on the runway at the Grand Palais. On Saturday it looks like Cara returned the favour by lending her support to her pop star pal.
