The star shielded her sparkling peepers with a pair of futuristic shades.
The outing comes amid claims Rita and Dua reportedly avoided each other at the Met Gala and its subsequent spate of after-parties.
The singers are said to be locked in a private feud that reached boiling point on Monday evening, when both stars dazzled on the red carpet at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art.
It’s understood that Dua, 23, has become frustrated with repeated comparisons to her contemporary as she endeavours to be viewed as an original artist in her own right.
A source told The Sun: ‘It’s a shame, as they used to be very close and Dua spoke a lot about how much she admired Rita. Dua even said she wanted to be just like Rita in the future.

But now things have gone south dramatically and she is trying to distance herself — and she’s making no secret of it in the industry.
‘Rita is desperate to avoid confrontation and went out of her way to make sure they didn’t come face to face. She hates the drama but really wanted to go to the Met Gala and didn’t want a row to stop that.’
The two stars followed their Met Gala appearance with separate visits to Katy Perry’s star-studded after-party at The Standard NYC.
Rita was seen making her way inside with close friend Kate Moss, while Dua soon followed on the arm of her boyfriend, chef Isaac Carew.
The two stars share similar backgrounds having both attended London’s prestigious Sylvia Young Theatre School after moving to the United Kingdom from their native Kosovo.
While Rita has enjoyed consistent success following the release of debut album Ora in 2012, comparative newcomer Dua is seen as a rising star after winning accolades for own self-titled 2017 debut.
Such is her popularity she is widely tipped to sing the forthcoming 25th James Bond soundtrack, putting her in the same legendary bracket as pop luminaries Tom Jones, Madonna, Tina Turner and Adele.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for further comment.
