Rita Ora Gives Up

Posted on April 01, 2013

Miss Rita simply couldn’t decide what to wear that night, so she simply wore everything.  Or maybe she had blindfolded people dress her; just for fun. Or maybe she ran headlong into an overcrowded closet and wore whatever landed on her. Or maybe she was really tired and these pieces were all within arm’s length.

What we’re trying to say here is, it’s been a while since we’ve seen an outfit as mismatched as this one.


Rita+Ora+Las+Vegas+BRSDP+1Rita Ora hosts The Evening at Tao Nightclub in Las Vegas.






Absolutely nothing goes with anything else in this look. All the blues clash, the jewelry is dead-wrong for the look, and the thigh-highs are dead-wrong for a dress shaped like that. Even the gold purse is wrong. It’s not hard to match metallics, so you really have to be wallowing in a pool of don’t-give-a-shit to get something that basic wrong.

And the sad part is, that’s a fun little dress. She could’ve done a lot with that as her starting point.

      To paraphrase Boris and Natasha, this outfit’s got AGGRAVATED uglies.

      • DebbieLovesShoes

        Stella, you made me laugh so loud, I woke up my sleeping husband! And made the dog stop chewing his toy, too!

    • BrooklynBomber

      Oh, God. Also, egad.

    • Christine Marie

      . . . . Grandma? Is that you?

    • Christiane Truelove

      OMG. She took fashion tips from Edina Monsoon.

      Wear ALL THE THINGS!

    • StellaZafella

      Not even on Drag Race…for laughs.
      And the face looks more than Photoshopped…though I know that it wasn’t.

      • CakesOnAPlane

        She is sucking in her cheeks hardcore in some of these pictures. Kind of painful to look at.

    • lovelyivy

      She looks like she crazied up a hospital smock with terrible accessories.

      • teensmom99

        I thought I was so original for thinking this!

    • YAELS

      not to mention the lipstick…oy

    • Sarah

      Case in point of why this chick is scoring so high in Fug Madness.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      She went for ‘BoHo’ and ended up with ‘Oh, No!’

      She’s dressed like she hit every Stein Mart and Loehman’s in South Florida.

    • Alexina04

      The way her hair sticks out of her scalp makes me think of the way my dolls’ hair looked like after I had them (and played hairdresser with them) for a few years… I don’t think it’s supposed to be doing that.

      • alyce1213

        Nailed it.

      • mhleta

        Exactly! Like doll hair right after you shampooed it with Mr. Bubble and combed it out with your sister’s tooth brush.

      For some reason the watch is the piece that makes me start giggling.

    • PeaceBang

      My first thought, “Oh, Ed Hardy is making hospital gowns now?” And then I saw that all the other BK’s though the same thing. You are so my people.

      • mhleta

        Yup. My first thought, too. “Ed Hardy? I thought someone drove a stake through his heart around the time when John and Kate split up their Eight.

          i dreamed a dream…

    • MilaXX

      Fashion Police took her to task for an equally horrific look. It’s like as her popularity rises, her fashion declines. Here it looks like even her makeup is wrong. The top lip looks like she lined and then forgot to apply the lipstick.

      • alyce1213

        The look on Fashion Police was worse, if that’s even imaginable.

        • demidaemon

          That look was extra special, as she wore it on a flight and then to a red carpet. Clearly, she thinks about style quite differently than the rest of us.

      IT BURRRRNS US. It’s a pity because that dress is really cute.
      Switch it a pair of funky wedges, maybe in a yellow or red (I feel like the Prada “hot rod” shoes would have been on point) – and a pair of giant earrings (in an actually matching gold, or a contrasting lacquer color) and maybe a funky little hat or head-scarf. Add a brown leather purse (a little one, maybe with long thin straps).

      Oh, it’s not that…

      *scrolls down*

      Oh. Oh, dear.

    • Lori

      The worst thing about this is that, terrible as it is, it’s closer to good than about 90% of what she wears out in public. At least the dress is sort of fun and a decent outfit could have been made with it. Most of the things she wears are hopeless abominations that shouldn’t exist, let alone form the basis of an outfit.

    • flamingoNW

      There is no part of that outfit that I like. With anything.

    • jilly_d

      Dreadful hair and makeup, and those boots are an abomination.

    • Indovina

      Oh, how unfortunate.

      I like the shape and colors of the dress itself, but I’m not terribly fond of the actual collage of regrettable tattoos print, and of course nothing goes – at all.

      • janierainie

        I was thinking I was the only one. That print is in bad taste. (the guns) Skulls, roses, hearts, rope, whatever, but assault rifes with clips? I guess my sense of humor is limited.

    • lrhoff

      Wow, that’s a tragedy. I hope no one was injured.

    • marilyn

      That is not a fun little dress. It is a hospital gown. I wonder if the back is open with a couple of flimsy strings hanging down. I can see the problem she has: How does one accessorize a wash and wear tacky hospital gown?

      • H3ff

        There are also NOOSES on it.

        • marilyn

          Yikes! The print is ghastly. I realize that some people would think that such a print is cool and totally outrageous. Buy why put it in demure pastel blue on a white background? Shouldn’t that have been done in black on a neon color, or in black and white? Did the Hello Kitty people take responsibility for the colors, while the Goths took responsibility for content? What a mismatch.

    • Trisha26

      OMG. (in a bad way)

    • Sara__B

      To quote my second favorite site on my most favorite site, “Is that a hospital gown from a Hell’s Angels-sponsored facility? And if so, who let her out of there? Clearly she needs another month of medication and rest.” (from Heather, one of the Fug girls)

    • unbornfawn

      Looks like a sleep shirt. She just crawled out of bed and threw on the entire jewelry box and lipstick and went out the door.

    • erinbinek

      It’s not good, but it’s not nearly as bad as what she normally wears. This lady is a mess.

      • NoGovernmentName

        Isn’t she in the final 8 for Fug Madness this year? And rightly so.

    • Carole Scofield

      If you replaced the face with, say, someone about 50 years older, she would look like someone you see out at the mini mart somewhere in south Florida late at night, picking up ciggies.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      The expression on her face even says that she doesn’t give a f*&#.

    • SewingSiren

      This is the April Fool , right?

    • boweryboy

      I couldn’t get past the hair and make-up. She looks like rough trade. I don’t know who she is and I’m pretty sure I’m better off for it.

    • Wardrobecircathebatshitcrazies

      Is it bad that I kind of love this whole ensemble? Maybe that’s why every fashion designer I meet recoils in disgust and horror…

    • YoungSally

      One flew out of the cuckoo’s nest.

    • http://twitter.com/kendallbrunson SassyMcFrench

      those boots! Ugh, they’re awful! They look like they’re from the Hannibal Lecter fall collection.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=49702581 Susan Bullard Mayer

      For her, this is approaching good. I mean, she’s gone out in public in neon rainbow whale tail biker shorts.

    • http://kingderella.tumblr.com/ kingderella

      its not just that its all mismatched… its that all the individual pieces are pretty ugly by themselves.
      well, i guess the pendant could work, if combined smartly.

    • snarkykitten

      between the crazy ass night gown and that fried looking hair, she reminds me of my chain-smoking great aunt Suzy. She also looks like she smells like cigarettes & cat pee

    • Imasewsure

      Do like that dress – send it Madonna would rocks this exact look much much better (and who would look great in this type of dress for a change)

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      And what is up with that hair? NO. no no no no no. Wrong color, bad roots, weird 1988 style. NO.

      ‘Mess on legs’, I think covers it.

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      The china pattern thing is very on trend right now. That is all.

    • ccm800

      What DOES this one do? I presume she is a singer but I have heard nothing ever.
