Rita Ora's Fishtail Braids Are Giving Us Serious Hair Envy

RITA bod
Before It-Brit Rita Ora took the stage last night — for an electrified performance at MTV's Isle of MTV Malta music festival — she was turning serious heads on the red carpet. Wearing a stunning black and gold flower-embellished Emanuel Ungaro dress, the singer looked insane. She kept accessories to a minimum because, well, her hair was the mane main attraction. Seriously, have you seen a more perfect fishtail braid? And she didn't just do one, she rocked fishtail pigtails. Even with a tutorial as easy as this, fishtail braids this clean would take us more than a couple tries. Her red lipstick, matching manicure, and neutral black eye makeup topped off her gorgeously understated Monaco-inspired look.

She's hiding the secret to perfect fishtails in those braids, and she knows it. And that one knowingly raised eyebrow is enough for us to know she's never giving it up.
