Rita Ora's Chain Nails at the Met Gala 2023

How Is Rita Ora Using the Toilet at the Met Gala With These Wild Chain Nails?

Rita Ora's Chain Nails at the Met Gala 2023

Rita Ora rolled up to the 2023 Met Gala with one of the wildest manicures of the evening. The singer's glossy black nails were each adorned with foot-long chains embellished with pearls, floral charms, and Chanel logos as a nod to Karl Lagerfeld, the late fashion designer at the centre of this year's Met Gala theme. Ora's edgy nails and sheer-panelled Prabal Gurung gown were front and centre as she walked up the Metropolitan Museum of Art steps with husband Taika Waititi, and she knew exactly how to show off both with her poses.

As soon as we caught that first glimpse at Ora's manicure, several questions came to mind. First and foremost, how on earth will she use the toilet throughout the night? Or eat without getting a mouthful of metal? And will Waititi be on untangling duty when the chains inevitably get twisted together once the party kicks off? We sure hope she shares the inside scoop on her Instagram Stories — if she can skirt around Anna Wintour's phone ban, that is.

Ora kept the rest of her look comparatively low-key, opting for neutral glossy lips, shimmery eyeshadow, and rosy cheeks. She wore her hair wavy at the roots, straight at the ends, and parted down the middle. Take a zoomed-in look at Ora's unforgettable nails ahead, then catch up on more must-see Met Gala beauty moments, from Quinta Brunson's structural updo to Emily Ratajkowski's micro fringe.
