After Miley-Cyrus-ing it out in a leopard leotard on day one, Rita Ora took the stage again on day two of the 2014 V Festival. She decided on wearing something a little bit more comfy — a double denim outfit composed of a boxy denim jacket and low-slung boyfriend jeans. But don’t think for a minute that Rita is going soft; as relaxed as her Texas tuxedo sounds like, it was actually entirely covered in luxurious, shiny pearls.

Small, medium, big — pearls were everywhere on the “Black Widow” singer. On her white satin bra, around her neck, on her sleeve cuffs, on her thighs, and even on her head. Hair stylist Chris Appleton perfectly matched the Katie Eary–customized double denim outfit by weaving strips of denim with the pearls in Rita’s ponytail.

Rita and her glam squad must’ve really been digging the look because the entire dance crew was outfitted in pearls and denim. See the details:

This isn’t Rita Ora’s first time to don double denim on stage. At a gig at the Joy Eslava Club in Spain last month, Rita tried out a TLC-inspired look with a ruffled denim jacket and jeans from the Ashish fall 2014 collection.
