Rita Ora looked stunning as she owned the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (24 August) – and her Black Widow inspired, spider nails were the icing on the cake!

Rita performed at last night's awards with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, singing their joint hit, 'Black Widow'... so, it was fitting that our Rita paid homage to her latest venture, by sporting glitzy spiders on her nails!

Rita joined the likes of Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Jessie J at The Forum in Los Angeles last night for the annual, glittering event.

She wore a red Donna Karan Atelier floor-length gown, along with her statement red lips and a super-blingy Lorraine Schwartz choker.

And true to her words during rehearsals on Friday (22 August) when asked what her and Iggy would be wearing for their performance, she really did incorporate "lots of spider webs and rhinestones" into her outfit!

Spiders aren't something you see often in nail art... but this is Rita after all and when did she ever do anything boring?

Rita gave us a quick insight into her look for the evening when she Instagrammed a close-up of her freshly painted mani the night before the awards.

Shaped long and very pointed, her nails were painted a gorgeously glossy shade of red that couldn't have matched her dress and lips better if it tried!

And on each thumb, forefinger and ring finger, she showed off bejewelled spiders that fought for attention against her gazillion rings.

If it didn't looks so ridiculously glamorous, it would be crazy!

Copying her look doesn't come easy, but we did find these 3D gold spider decorations, £2.99 which come as part of a set on amazon.co.uk.

First, paint your nails with two coats of a rich red nail polish (we love Revlon Nail Enamel in Revlon Red, £6.49, boots.com) then, while the polish is still tacky, carefully press a few spiders over the top and finish with top coat.

It might not have quite the bling-factor of Rita's A-list mani, but it's pretty cool anyway, right?
