The singer wore this very slinky, hanging-on-for-dear-life number to the Sony Music VIP summer party in London on Tuesday.
We hope the bodice was taped down!
But it seems like Rita was concerned that her boobs might come swinging out of their precarious sheath, and had her hands gripping her skirt presumably to keep the fabric from moving.
It appears to have worked, because we didn't see even a hint of nipple.
Also, we love her top bun and dark red lipstick.
