RITA ORA GETS PAINTED ON JIMMY FALLON
THIS ABOUT RITAS PERFORMANCE FROM THE DAILY MAIL:
You can tell from her many outlandish outfits that she is fearless when it comes to the world of fashion. But Rita Ora took her love for couture one step further when she sang on stage while artist Thierry Guetta pelted her spotless white dress with paint during a performance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Monday night.The 23-year-old singer looked like she wanted to recreate the iconic catwalk finale of the McQueen spring/summer 1999 show, when model Shalom Harlow’s simple frock was spray painted by two robots as she stood on a rotating platform.
Rita started her performance on the late night talk show looking every inch the prom princess in an unblemished bustier dress and white Adidas trainers. While singing her new track, I Will Never Let You Down, artist Thierry Guetta – aka Mr. Brainwash – poured five full cans of paint over the singer.Guetta is a French street artist who lives in Los Angeles and is known for his historic and contemporary cultural pop–graffiti art.
