MTV EMAs hosts Rita Ora and Taikia Waititi lead red carpet arrivals


All eyes were on Rita Ora and her husband Taikia Waititi as they lead the arrivals at the 2022 MTV Europe Music Awards before hosting the show on Sunday evening in Germany’s Dusseldorf.

The singer, 31, certainly caused a stir as she arrived wearing a perilously plunging black and red lace dress which flashed her cleavage as she posed behind her director beau at the PSD Bank Dome.

Rita makes her return as MTV EMAs host this year alongside Taika, five years after she made her hosting debut in 2017 and will also perform her hit track R.I.P at the start of the show.

Rita has been nominated on several occasions and won the Power of Music Award.

The Girls hitmaker showcased her gym-honed physique in the jaw-dropping look, which was teamed with a pair of towering black platform heels.

The blonde beauty wore her locks in a loose blown out style and opted for a fun make-up look including white eyeshadow and a slick of nude gloss.

Wowza! The singer, 31, certainly caused a stir as she arrived wearing a perilously plunging black and red lace dress which flashed her cleavage as she posed behind her director beau at the PSD Bank Dome
