WERQ: Rita Ora in Mugler

Posted on November 06, 2012

Look, we’re as surprised by this turn of events as you most likely are, but we’ve gotta give it up for the girl.


Rita Ora attends the 2012 MOBO awards in Liverpool, England in Mugler.

Mugler Fall 2012 Collection/Model: Monika Sawicka (NATHALIE)

Because that can’t be an easy dress to pull off and yet she looks amazing. Love the pops of gold and red. And we love a gal who knows the value of a good pair of hooker shoes. She wore the same pair with that McQ dress the other day.

You WERQ that folded napkin dress, Miss Girl! Snaps of RESPECT.

  • Good lord that is a tiny waist. I don’t know any of her songs, but I am starting to like the cut of her jib.

    • kimmeister

      It is small indeed, but also visually shrunken by the huge shoulders and peplum right above and below it.

      •  And of course her torqued posture in all of these pictures.

  • newleaf1

    Dayum, This looks great on her!  And love the JBF hair.  

  • That itty bitty teeny weeny tiny waist is just EVERYTHING.

    • sk8tfan

      It reminds me of Miss Scarlett complaining that childbirth made her 18 inch waist expand to 20 inches. Lawd sakes, that’s a tiny waist.

      •  I was going to run get my copy of “GWTW” and find that exact quote but decided to run through the comments first……glad I did!  (And remember, that 20″ was after THREE children.)

        • sk8tfan

          Lordy, I’d forgotten. Today she’d be a best selling diet author.

          • DeborahJozayt

            Or corset industrialist.

          • formerlyAnon

             Yeah, I was thinking daily corseting had a lot to do with that number!

  • imperfectlaura

    On Twitter you said she is “WERQing that Mugler like it stole her boyfriend.”  Her rumored boyfriend is the male Kardashian so I think that metaphor doesn’t truly quantify how well she’s wearing this dress.

  • What I love the most about Miss Rita Ora, besides the dress and yes, hooker shoes, is that she is rocking a blonder version of Nancy Allen’s hooker hair in Dressed to Kill. A hairdo I fully endorse. WERQ that call girl do!

  • hughman

    What I want to know is what Fashion Clam Shell has recently opened to thrust this “Rita Ora” upon us out of apparently nowhere? 

    •  I’m sayin’.  I know I’m hardly a pop culture intellectual, but who IS this woman?

      • I’m so glad I’m not the only one who hasn’t got a clue who she is. That said she is WERQing the hell out of that dress.

      • DeborahJozayt

        She’s like a British Rhianna. She’s popular amongst hip hop/Pop fans over there. 

        •  Thanks for getting me up to speed!  Sometimes I feel so Out. Of. It.

          • DeborahJozayt

            No prob! Came across one of her music videos on youtube through another artist. She’s not my cup of tea musically, but she dresses like her life depended on it!

          • formerlyAnon

             I have decided that placidly accepting a degree of Out. Of. It. is a perk of middle age. And it can be so gratifying to the [inevitably younger] friends and relations when they clue me in.

    •  I’ve been aware of her as a thing in Britain for a couple of months now – which probably means she’s been around for about a year because I am helplessly out of touch.

    • Ali

       She’s dating Rob Kardashian.

  • Wow, total WERQ! Love this look!

  • ChaCha_70

    Umm, is she wearing a corset or is that her actual waist? Omg – TINY! She does look amazing though.

    • Corsetmaker

      Mugler uses lots of corsetry, that’ll have something doing the work behind that waist panel.

  • Holy Hell, what is her waist measure, like 12 inches? Not in love with the over-processed hair, but everything else is saying DeeVAH, DeeVAH, DeeVAH!

  • She does look fierce, but the shoulder pads make her look like she has absolutely no neck. Love the rest of it.

  • Stefanos Mantyla

    Oh, she will get it wrong soon, just you watch.

  • Her waist is TINY–or that dress is doing a damn good job!

  • kimmeister

    I must confess I don’t know anything about her background, but what the heck is up with her foundation?  Maybe it’s just really camera-unfriendly, but here she looks like a woman of color wearing white face.

  • Stubenville

    I agree with the werq, but white in November? I prefer the original blue/gray.

    • ecallaw1977

       I think the original is white as well, and the lighting just makes it look kind of blue/gray.

  • She looks insane. 

  • Lisa Kramp

    Don’t know anything about her music, but damnation! She looks good.

  • altalinda

    Too Dynasty for me, but still snaps of respect for pulling it off.

  • MilaXX

    The fact that she looks better in that dress than the model says it all. The fact that despite the trashy hooker face and hair (which I get is her ‘thing’), this entire look works is what makes this a WERQ

  • joything

    Howdy effin’ Doody! The girl is FAB.

  • lulukittie

    Diva! I am loving how well she wears directional clothes. Many starlets try and fail. 

  • StephanieLovesTLo

    I have no idea who she is, but she is BRINGING it. Stunning.

  • Who is this Rita person? How come I have never heard of her?

  • jmorino08

    That corset around her waist looks HELLA painful! But she looks FAB!

  • frannyprof

    Awesome! Who is she?!

  • Winter_White

    If only there were some way to use the machine I am already using to read T Lo…to learn something about this woman…sigh.

  • KatrinaAtienza

    She’s serving some reinterpreted Diana Ross ca Supremes.

  • Contralto

    I have no idea who this person is but I.love.huh.

  • akprincess72

    Very Gwen Stefani-esque, & I mean that in a good way…

  • Contralto

    Ah, here we go:

    Rita Sahatçiu Ora (born 26 November 1990) is a British singer-songwriter and actress. She is of Kosovar Albanian ethnicity.

    • Thanks. I had no idea who she is.

    • She’s also the boy Kardashian’s gf. 

      • formerlyAnon

         Sometimes, it must be dispiriting to be “the boy Kardashian.”

    • l_c_ann

      She’s 22.

      Who’d a thunk it?

  • Nooo. Too Dynasty.

  • quiltrx

    That’s a really good dress, but her hair gives me all sorts of twitches.  Not just that it’s blonde, but that it looks like it belongs on a dead hooker.

  • kaycem


  • No missteps, but I feel this is Tilda’s dress.

  • She looks pretty fierce. And WHAT. A. FIGURE.

  • boweryboy

    She’s a hot mess – especially yesterday’s get-up.  I don’t know who she is, and I’m probably better off for it.

  • PastryGoddess

    Everything from the hairline down is fierce as shit.  I cannot with that fried mess of hair.  Just no.  If you can afford a stylist who can get a Mugler and McQ on your body, then you can afford a gay who can work your weave better than this

  • TieDye64

    Lord have mercy, she is rocking that folded napkin shit. Love it all except the hair.

  • DebbieLovesShoes

    My God, look at that waist!  That is cah-razy!

  • unbornfawn

    She may be WERQing the heck out of that dress, but that hair and make-up kinda scare me.

  • judybrowni

    Wow, even working those bra cups as shoulder pads,

    That’s some werk, lady.

  • kayemcee

    I don’t know who this person is.  Are her hair and eyebrows supposed to look like that?  I’m not sure that is okay.

    Love the nails and the shoes.  Hate everything else (especially the hair and eyebrows)

  • decormaven

    With the emphasis on the padded shoulders, she’s got to be careful to hold the neck up in such a certain way that the neck doesn’t disappear down into the dress, but she is selling the heck out of that dress. Girl, it’s time to get yourself an A-list hair stylist because you’ve shown you can rock the RC.

  • Look at that waist! I love this look on her, and her reuse of stripper shoes. 

  • SewingSiren

    It takes a special level of cuckoo to pull off Mugler. And she has it.

  • ♕ Natalie ♕

    Love her. She’s so fabulous. TLo, she works white REALLY well, there was a drop dead number she wore to Bergdorf Goodman’s party that’s even more fabulous than this one http://www.luckymag.com/blogs/luckyrightnow/2012/10/Toasting-111-Years-of-Bergdorf-Goodman#slide=1

  • Bill Curtis

    I don’t know who she is, but she’s throwing some serious Miss Eartha Kitt here.

  • teensmom99

    Now those are the shoes for a whilte dress!

  • alyce1213

    Exactly who is this person?

  • Dress looks gorg, but I still hate the hair.

  • formerlyAnon

    Great job, indeed! I wish the curls were sleeker & less frizzy, but otherwise I love.

  • PantherontheRunway

    Love her to pieces, but I hate that hair!

  • Melizmatic

    Everything except the hair looks fab.

  • MaryanneGirl

    Holy itty bitty waist, batman! She looks lovely, but I want to condition her hair…

  • Rita Oro IS Faye Dunaway IS Joan Crawford in… “Mommie Dearest”.

  • librarygrrl64

    No idea who this is, but DAYUM that’s a tiny waist!
