Rita Ora flashes her assets in extreme plunging gown at MTV VMAs as she represents the Brits alongside supermodel Cara Delevingne

They are both huge celebrities in their own right. 

So it's fitting that both singer Rita Ora and supermodel Cara Delevingne should fly the flag for British artists at the MTV Video Music Awards held at the Staples Center in LA on Sunday.

The two women wowed onlookers in a pair on contrasting black dresses, which saw Rita, 24, flash her assets in an extreme plunging gown, while Cara opted to put on a leggy display in a mini dress.

Flaunting both her ample cleavage as well as her legs, Rita left little to the imagination in the number, which boasted both criss-cross straps and a feathered skirt.

Scraping her hair back into a taut bun, she cut a demure - yet sexy - figure.

She also added heavy eye make-up for extra effect, while sporting nude lipstick for a fresh-faced finish.

Meanwhile, in contrast, Cara went for a cleaner look in a star-spangled dress which clung to her model figure. 

Sweeping her hair to one side, she shunned her typical tomboy look for a more feminine approach.  

Allowing her to put on an equally leggy display, she capped the look with a pair of simple strappy shoes which elongated her perfect pins.

Clearly excited by the event, Cara was also pleased to be with her pals. 

She was there with American star Taylor Swift and her famous girl squad, including Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid.

The 25-year-old, who is leading the nominations for the evening, certainly went for a striking look in a gold, silver and bronze houndstooth crop top and matching trousers, which were both covered in sequins.
