Rita Ora goes braless at MTV VMAS in New York

She has never been shy about flaunting her sensational physique ever since storming into the spotlight in 2012.

And true to form Rita Ora turned heads in a sheer embellished gown as she left the Bowery Hotel headed to MTV’s Video Music Awards in New York, shortly before locking lips with fellow songstress Bebe Rexha.

The songstress, 27, left almost nothing to the imagination as she went braless in the barely-there number, which was adorned with black swirls.

In her hand she toted a spherical gem-encrusted black evening bag, no doubt full of her essentials for the evening out.
