There is no official confirmation of the precise date Rita Ora and Taika Waititi exchanged vows, since she has kept the specifics of her wedding to the actor tightly under wraps. We do know that Waititi proposed to Ora with an emerald set in a pavé of diamonds, and that he later gave his wife a delicate wedding band in a secret ceremony.
During a Wednesday appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the 32-year-old singer made her emerald engagement ring and gold wedding band public for the first time. Ora made her marriage to producer Taika Waititi, 47, public on Jan. 27 by announcing she was “off the market.”
The singer revealed more details about her engagement ring on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon which, up until now, she has “never shown anyone”. “Because I love you and I feel like you’re part of our relationship, weirdly, because we watch you every night, I just felt like I’ll show you it,” she told Fallon, before offering up her hand to the camera. “He did good,” she gushed.
Ora admitted guiding Waititi throughout the selecting procedure. “I just think, like, when you know what you want and I felt like I really knew that I wanted to be with this person, I just wanted it to feel really right,” she explained. “I may have taken him to the shop and I may have pointed out exactly what ring I wanted.”
The debut of Rita’s third album’s promotional campaign coincides with the release of the first single, “You Only Love Me,” last week. The song’s star-studded music video also has cameos from Sharon Stone, Jodie Turner-Smith, Kristen Stewart, and Lindsay Lohan. Rita is seen in the video wearing a rare ivory Yves Saint Laurent autumn/winter 1987 Rive Gauche wedding gown, which was acquired by vintage dealer Cherie Balch of Shrimpton Couture. This is the first time the public has seen Rita wearing a wedding gown.
Talking about her new music: “I’m just so excited about this music, not just because it’s mine, but because … I feel like the journey it took me to get to this point and the past two years, my life has changed so drastically. And making a decision to really spend the rest of your life with someone is a kind of big decision, you know? So it got me writing again, and I just really got inspired by love,” she said.
She added, “That’s what I wrote all my feelings about. And it’s nice to capture the moment. So I feel like this is more than just music. It’s like a moment in life for me.”
