Rita Ora has pulled off her boldest take yet on 2023’s top celebrity trend of the revealing dress – which Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Chastain are also fans of.

The singer, 32, rocked a red, 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 posting an image of her outfit – which she also accessorised with a pair of sky-high heels – on Instagram, her fans rushed to praise the stunning look.

These included Davina McCall who declared “this dress is to die for”, while other social media users said it was “fantastic” and “so hot”.

However, this isn’t the first time Ora has opted for a revealing dress recently – she picked one for the Netflix Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Nominees Toast at the start of the month.

The star wore only black underwear under her purple lace number from Rodarte, retailing for £2,294, opting to leave the included slip at home.

She also stood out in a tight dress by Nensi Dojaka on the red carpet of the Fashion Awards in December.

Ora isn’t the only one taking the revealing dress trend for a spin in recent weeks, with Jennifer Lopez recently wearing a gorgeously colored Valentino dress adorned with matching gold crystals to the premiere of Shotgun Wedding.

Fans of the 53-year-old singer and actress loved the look on Instagram, which featured a beige strapless slip 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”.

This trend has also been seen on several other red carpets this year, with celebrities at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice wearing nude or see-through dresses.

Jessica Chastain wore a nude Oscar de la Renta dress to the Golden Globes, and Anya Taylor-Joy from The Menu wore nude and Christian Dior dress for the Critics’ Choice Awards.

Lily James also hit the Critics’ Choice Awards in a see-through Oscar de la Renta gown, her second fashion win of the year after style watchers named her the “best dressed” celebrity at the Golden Globes .

The naked dress can come in several variations. It can be a dress that closely matches your skin tone, a see-through dress with carefully placed fabric to protect one’s modesty, or it can be a dress made entirely of sheer fabric.

The trend seemed to be taking off after the 2022 Met Gala, where Kim Kardashian wore the famous Marilyn Monroe revealing dress worn by the actress in 1962 to serenade the then President of the United States, John F Kennedy.

“In a sense, it’s the original revealing dress,” Kardashian told Vogue after the Met Gala. “That’s why it was so horrible.”

Emily Ratajkowski and Lily James were two other celebrities who took the revealing 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 wore a breast-baring Valentino gown at the fashion house’s couture show in Paris last year that left her fans in awe of the social media.

“If I’m happy there, I’ll be wearing it there. Of course, I don’t want to offend people, but my point is: How can my nipples offend you so much?” Pugh told Vogue afterwards.

With stars already rocking the trend in 2023, it looks like the revealing dress isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
