Rita Ora has slipped on what may be her boldest endorsement yet of the 2023 celebrity nude dress trend — of which Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Chastain are also fans.
The singer, 32, wowed in a red see-through latex dress to perform on stage at London’s iconic Heaven nightclub.
She paired her one-shoulder Avellano ensemble with star-shaped nipple pasties and a nude thong, along with hoop earrings and wavy hair.
After she posted an image of her outfit – which she also paired with a pair of sky-high heels – to Instagram, her fans rushed to praise the eye-catching look.
These included Davina McCall stating “this dress is to die for” while other social media users said “gorgeous” and “so hot”.
It’s not the first time Ora has opted for a sheer dress lately, though — she chose one for the Netflix Golden Globe and Critics Choice Nominee Toast at the start of the month.

The star wore only black underwear under her purple lace Rodarte number, retailing for £2,294, opting to leave the provided briefs at home.
She also stepped out in a sheer dress by Nensi Dojaka on the Fashion Awards red carpet in December.
Ora isn’t alone in trying out the nude dress trend in recent weeks, with Jennifer Lopez recently wearing a tan sheer Valentino dress adorned with matching gold crystals for the premiere of Shotgun Wedding.
The 53-year-old singer and actor’s fans on Instagram loved the look, which featured beige strapless briefs underneath and a vibrant yellow bow at the waist.
One social media user wrote, “No one does it better!” while another shared “love this dress” and a third said “STUNNING”.

The trend has also been seen on several other red carpets this year, with celebrities at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards wearing nude or sheer dresses.
Jessica Chastain wore a nude Oscar de la Renta dress to the Golden Globes, while The Menu’s Anya Taylor-Joy wore a nude dress And sheer Christian Dior dress to the Critics’ Choice Awards.
Lily James also dazzled at the Critics’ Choice Awards in a sheer Oscar de la Renta gown, her second fashion win of the year after style observers voted her the “best dressed” celebrity at the Golden Globes.
The nude dress can come in different variations. It could be a dress that closely matches your skin tone, a sheer dress with fabric carefully placed to protect the wearer’s modesty, or it could be a dress made of completely sheer fabric.

The trend seemed to gain momentum after the 2022 Met Gala, where Kim Kardashian donned the famous Marilyn Monroe nude dress that the actor wore in 1962 to serenade then-President of the US, John F Kennedy.
“In a way, it’s the original nude dress,” Kardashian told Vogue after the Met Gala. “That’s why it was so shocking.”
Emily Ratajkowski and Lily James were two other celebrities who brought the nude dress to the Met Gala, both wearing Versace for the occasion.
Perhaps the most talked-about nude moment of 2022, however, was Florence Pugh, who last year wore a Valentino dress that exposed her breasts at the fashion house’s Paris couture show, drawing both praise and backlash from her social media followers.
“If I’m happy in it, I’ll wear it. Of course I don’t mean to offend people, but I guess my point is, how can my nipples offend you like that?” Pugh later told Vogue.
With stars already wearing the trend in 2023, it looks like the nude dress isn’t going anywhere for a while.
