Road-test on Rita Ora’s racy lace-up dress that leaves little to the imagination

The no-knicker look is taking off among celebs, with Rita Ora the latest to shun her smalls.

The X Factor judge wore a barely-there dress and little else at Sunday’s Versace show in Paris.

The de-briefed style is also popular with Kendall Jenner and J-Lo, who often opt for sexy frocks that can’t be worn with undies. But does this bold trend suit everyone?

We asked model Paula Romy to go commando in various scenarios in a saucy lace-up dress – £25, boohoo.com – to see if the experience was pant-tastic . . . or just pants.

Here she gives her verdicts, with an Undie Cover Rating for each one.

PAULA says: “It’s a bit nippy and my dress keeps threatening to blow away in the wind.

“If you ever crave attention you definitely need a dress like this – just make sure you get a full wax done first.

“Maybe next time I go for this look I’ll pick a warmer day.”

UNDIE COVER RATING: 2

PAULA says: “If you are planning a shopping trip then this is definitely not the dress to wear, as bending down is rather difficult.

“I’m trying to make sure my bum doesn’t make an appearance.

“Reaching up could result in a nip slip too, so there really is no relief whatever you do.”

UNDIE COVER RATING: 0


On an escalator

PAULA says: “I have to be careful no one looks up or they’ll get an eyeful.

“And I don’t want the dress to get caught and untie or I’ll be in big trouble. Even so, a guy came over to say my dress was amazing and that wouldn’t happen if I was more covered up.”

UNDIE COVER RATING: 3


In a bar

PAULA says: “This is one way to get a few free drinks and I’d also save money on buying new briefs.

“I feel like I should be on the red carpet and almost as cool as Rita Ora – and not because there’s a draught in here. No need to worry about VPL either.”

UNDIE COVER RATING: 4


Getting out of a taxi

PAULA says: “I never knew getting in and out of a taxi could be such a challenge.

“I now understand how celebrities get papped flashing their privates all the time.

“I can’t sit down without my hand guarding my privacy.

“If I forget, I’m going to flash everything.”

UNDIE COVER RATING: 1
