Sure, you can hang out backstage at the Chanel show all you want (in our dreams!) but how do you know you’re REALLY tight with Mr. Karl Lagerfeld? Well, if you happen to Rita Ora, that would mean winning bragging rights to a dress designed by the Kaiser himself! NBD, right? Rita performed at the suuuuuuper fancy Bal De La Rose Du Rocher event in Monte-Carlo this weekend, decked out in a burlesque-inspired dress custom-made by the Chanel designer and making a serious statement at the sold-out event. She tweeted an image of the sketch a couple of days ago, saying “Tonight’s attire. Designed by Karl Lagerfeld called the The Ora. Fashion it does the craziest things sometimes. #wow #Chanel #fukwatevaitisyourdoing Hehehe #werowdy.” Rita, we hope you’ve saved the sketches in a gold-plated frame for all of posterity, because THIS.IS.MAJOR. Also, the fact that Karl dubbed the dress “The Ora”?! Here’s another hashtag for ya… #Jealous.

The gown, which came adorned with pink rosettes over the chest and black lace trim across the black and white bustier, also had a flowing pink train attached (also, Karl’s handwriting all over the sketch? We’re dying….). After performing “RIP” and “How We Do (Party)” for the Princess of Monaco, who was celebrating her birthday, Rita hit the stage with Theophilus London— who happens to be another one of Karl’s buds.

The twosome then rocked out, duet-style, to Theo’s new track “Rio,” before jetting back off to London dressed in, wait for it, SWEATPANTS. It’s the perfect contrast to this ultra-glam getaway, and this, Rita, is exactly why we love you. Oh, and is it just us, or did your weekend suddenly seem a LOT more boring…?
