The 'R.I.P.' singer and US star Taylor wowed on at the MTV event in Germany over the weekend.

Rita Ora and Taylor Swift turned heads across the red carpet when they made their arrival at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2012 on Sunday evening (11th November).

UK singer-songwriter Rita made her EMAs debut over the weekend and walked the red carpet dressed in a stunning bright red Marchea gown, which featured a sheer upper half boasting red floral detailing and a floor length scarlet skirt.

The 'Shine Ya Light' singer paired her extravagant awards show outfit with bright red lipstick and a curled short blonde hair do, and had to have someone help lift the train of her dress while heading into the Festhalle Arena for the start of the show.

Rita later performed her hit single 'R.I.P.' live on stage to kick off this year's EMAs where she opted for a red lace catsuit in keeping with her wardrobe palette for the night, paired with a similar red jacket, and arrived in a giant gold birdcage to start her performance.

'Love Story' singer Taylor late changed into a pair of black shorts, black boots and a red glittery military jacket to perform her hit single 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' to close out the MTV EMAs 2012.
