The dress was a floor-length affair, with a Bardot neckline and a matching choker.

She added sharp white heels to the outfit, sweeping her mane back from her features to showcase her striking make-up to its full potential.

The Lonely Together songstress boasted a bronzed complexion which she painted with sparkling turquoise eye make-up and dark pink lipstick.

Her eye make-up glistened in the bright lights of the red carpet, painted in dramatic zig-zags for extra pizzazz.

Rita’s dress is from designer 16Arlington and was fashioned bespoke for the pop star.

The print is a core theme from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection which has been reinterpreted into a special look for Rita. It’s been constructed to wrap around her body as a seamless coil and shaped into swirled leather panels.

February 2019 saw 16Arlington show on schedule at London Fashion Week for the first time. The highly successful presentation took the format of a runway show, with an invigorating soundtrack inside and a bustling queue outside.

Reviews were published on WWD, Vogue International and many other prestigious titles around the world. This resulted in the brand becoming a firm favourite amongst the fashion crowd and a regular feature in highly regarded fashion publications.

Home and Away star Sarah Roberts reveals baby plans with James Stewart after wedding

Published

In July, Home and Away co-stars James Stewart and Sarah Roberts tied the knot at Luttrellstown Castle on the outskirts of Dublin, Ireland.

And the pair are now looking forward to starting a family – although they are coy on when that will be. 

Sarah, 35, says she and James, 44, are heading that way – after their honeymoon, anyway.

She tells The Daily Telegraph:  ‘I think people are just sort of interested in that aren’t they? After you get married it seems like the natural progression’. 

The actress added about their baby plans: ‘I think the best thing to say is we’ll see.’

First they will enjoy their belated honeymoon ‘in Europe next year’ to celebrate their one-year anniversary.

The couple recently revealed more details from their big day in an interview with Now To Love.   

‘It was really special. We got married in a castle, I think that’s a dream come true,’ Sarah told the publication. 

‘And we had all of our close friends and relatives around so I don’t think I could’ve wished for anything more’.

James revealed his daughter Scout, who he shares with ex-partner Jessica Marais, loved the wedding as much as her dad and stepmother did. 

‘She loved it. She met her new cousins, she got makeup on, she put on a pretty dress. Some of the photos I’ve seen of her are pretty special,’ James said.   

Rather than a star-studded cast of characters in Ireland, the pair opted to have an intimate ceremony with just close friends and family.

The couple became engaged on November 30 last year, when James popped the question at the restaurant where they’d had their first date.  

Sarah has appeared on Home and Away as a regular cast member since 2017, portraying Willow Harris. 

Meanwhile, James has appeared on the show since 2016, with him portraying the role of mechanic Justin Morgan.

She married Joe Jonas in a quick Vegas wedding back in May, before enjoying a second lavish wedding in France a month later.

And Sophie Turner showed her love for her husband on Saturday as she attended the Jonas Brothers’ Happiness Begins tour at The Frank Erwin Center, Texas

The Game Of Thrones star, 23, opted for a plunging white top which gave a hint of her cleavage as she sat in the audience to watch her beau and his brothers perform.

At one point Sophie allowed her flaming locks to hang loosely on her shoulders, while in another she wore them in a bun. 

The star also displayed a sleek pair of glasses but opted to go jewellery free besides her wedding and engagement rings.

Sophie wore only a light palette of make-up to emphasise her natural features.  

Joe and his brothers Kevin and Nick were quite the trio on stage, with Kevin in the centre with his guitar (pictured left to right: Joe, Kevin and Nick)

Joe, 30, wore a matching Louis Vuitton jacket and trousers, while Kevin, 32, went for a patterned silver ensemble. 

Younger brother Nick, 27, was wearing a black double-breasted jacket and matching trousers. 

And Joe looked in his element as he belted out the band’s hits with his brothers alongside him.

The Jonas Brothers’ world tour began back in August. 

The band formed in 2005 and sold more than 20 million records worldwide, but confirmed their split in 2013.

But they reformed earlier this year to much fanfare and released their first album in a decade, Happiness Begins, on June 7. 

After Texas they will head to California, New York and Atlanta before kicking off their U.K leg of the tour in Birmingham in the New Year.

Sophie and Joe tied the knot in a quick Vegas wedding back in May, before enjoying a second wedding in France a month later.

However, Joe appeared to have forgotten about his nuptials when he captioned a recent snap of himself with his brothers as the ‘Best. Day. Ever.’

The enthusiastic admission had the Game Of Thrones actress jokingly leaving the comment: ‘Really? The BEST day EVER!? Interesting……’

Joe appeared to be innocently promoting his limited edition batch of Coors Light, alongside his brothers, with his caption hinting at how much fun he had on set.

However, Sophie took it as an opportunity to poke fun at him, as she left a witty comment subtly reminding him of their nuptials.

Nick Cannon isn’t here for you to diss his ex and the mother of their two children.

The 39-year-old actor was quick to sound off Eminem‘s new track with Fat Joe and Dre titled Lord Above that takes a pretty clear aim at Cannon’s ex, Mariah Carey, 49.

While on his Power 106 show, Nick Cannon Mornings, he had some choice words about the new single.

He should change his name from Eminem to like Percocet,’ he said during his show. 

‘What’s the pill for old people? We gon’ call him Cialis…Bring your walker, get out your wheelchair Eminem, and pop whatever you pop.’ 

But that wasn’t all, Cannon also took to his Instagram to share a snippet of the show while adding ‘Scram! Scram! Blam! Blam! Does Eminem still got it!?’

Uh oh: He should change his name from Eminem to like Percocet,' Nick stated during his show while wearing a Santa costume

But he didn’t stop there, he also tagged the famed singer on his social media calling him out by his real name of Marshall Bruce Mathers in his caption writing: ‘Let’s Wild Out Marshall!!!@Eminem @mtvwildnout @NickCannonMornings In the MuthaFuk’n Santa Suit!!!’

In regards to the lyrics in question, Eminem wraps to the beat while chanting: ‘Word to the Terror Squad, Joe, this is all puns aside though / I know me and Mariah didn’t end on a high note,’  the Lose Yourself Singer rapped. 

It continues: ‘But that other dude’s whipped, that pu**y got him neutered / Tried to tell him this chick’s a nut job ‘fore he got his jewels clipped / Almost got my caboose kicked, fool, quit, you not gon’ do s**t / I let her chop my balls off too ‘fore I lost to you, Nick.’

Back in 2001, rumors began to swirl that Eminem and Mariah were an item. And shortly after, Mariah was mentioned twice on his new album, The Eminem Show.

Later that year, when the Rolling Stone inquired about the relationship, he revealed that the rumors may be true.

‘There’s truth to that. But on the whole personal level, I’m not really feeling it. I just don’t like her as a person.’

The All I Want For Christmas Is You singer always denied any relationship and revealed she has only ‘hung out with him’ and ‘spoke to him on the phone.’ 

The two go back and forth for years after that. It was rumored that during one of his shows he played old voicemails from the star asking him why he doesn’t call her. 

And in 2008, when Mariah tied the knot with Nick, he was open about his opinion on the rapper.  

‘Think about it… I think we was flying back on a jet from Africa somewhere and this motherf**ker drops a song, like talking s**t, calling her all kind of bitches and h**s,’ he revealed on T.I Harris’ podcast ExpediTIously. 

‘I’m like, ‘This my wife! This is my new wife!”
