Rita Ora in Alexandre Vauthier Couture

Posted on June 03, 2013

Rita is serving up ’80s nighttime soap opera bitch realness.


Rita Ora attends the ‘Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live’ Concert in London in a white Alexandre Vauthier ensemble paired with Christian Louboutin pumps.

That is some Knot’s Landing/Falcon Crest hair if ever we saw it. We might have gotten behind the jumpsuit, but the top half of it just looks like it can’t decide what it wants to be. Too many elements for one garment. We give her credit, because aside from maybe Rihanna, we don’t think there’s another woman alive who could work this odd-looking thing half as well as she does. But even so, she should’ve put this one back on the hanger.

      It’s always white. If not white, red, but she’s too repetitive.

    • MilaXX

      Apparently this is year of the wonky sleeve. This works for Rita, but I can’t say it’s cute.

      Just… WOW. Her hair reminds me of Madonna’s “Desperately Seeking Susan” days. And then that jumpsuit, with the body glitter, and the shoulder pad, and the excessive rings, and the too-heavy makeup, and that JUMPSUIT. Ugh.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Yes!! Her hair is very “Madonna’s hair in the ‘Material Girl’ video”, which was the same year as “DSS”. I really love that movie!

      • drdarke

        I disagree, @twitter-289440786:disqus – while not every woman could carry off that look, Ms. Ora can. She makes it look fierce!

        I think the “too many elements” up top are what save it from looking bland – her skin tone and body make it work, and work well, IMFFHO!

      I just don’t get anything about her — the outfits, the hair, the nails, the body glitter, the makeup, and most of all the attitude (which she hasn’t earned). Did her makeup artist go too far with the eyeshadow or are those dark circles under her eyes?

      NO, all around. Rational dislike.

      • Beardslee

        Yes. Vulgar from head to toe.

      • Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

        I honestly don’t know who she is.

    • hughman

      She is giving Saturday Night Fever realness in the role of Annette.

      • Rhonda Shore

        I like her coloring, dark eyed, olive-completed blondes work for me. Outfit – no, makes her left boob look weird.

    • sleepycat

      the only thing i dislike is the shoulder pad. It looks like a tumor.

    • Jennifer Ford

      I’m sorry, but body glitter? With couture? *eyeroll*

      • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

        But the couture in question is a one-sleeved jumpsuit with a shoulder pad, pleated pants, and leg-o-mutton legs.

        • Jennifer Ford

          Questionable couture doesn’t excuse the use of body glitter.

          • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

            Oh, I agree with you. There was a hefty dose of sarcasm thrown in with my comment.

        • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

          so appropo, as she looks like a mutton wearing it.

    • Donna Tabor

      That’s a lotta bling on those fingers! The jumpsuit bottom looks more diapery than it does on the model. Wonder why.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      It’s Krystle illegitimate daughter after a minor cat fight with Alexis’s illegitimate daughter.

    • majorbedhead

      The thing that’s making me twitch the most is the bronze-y gold rings with the yellow-y gold nails. The rest of the look is…well, it’s awful. I was going to try to find something nice to say, but there really isn’t. She’s a gorgeous woman with terrible fashion sense.

    • minnye

      The four identical rings on her left hand look tough, and I kind of love it. Everything else, uh no.

      • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

        looks like brass knuckles. she’s ready for that catfight!

    • Anniebet

      Meh on the jumpsuit, love the rings though.

    • e jerry powell

      Nighttime soap by way of Beyonce, I think. I’m on the fence about the look.

    • leave_Blake_alone

      “…aside from maybe Rihanna,…” – that’s her whole problem – at best, she’s a pretty good Rihanna imitator.

    • nannypoo

      Sometime I’ll watch a movie or listen to a song or hire a hooker or whatever it is that you do to find out about the many talents of this Rita Ora. I’m sure she’s a lovely person when you get to know her.

    • Veronica1022

      It looks like something Sammie Jo Carrington would have worn.

      • YayaGurl

        That was the first thing I thought.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      I think if her hair were its natural color, she could have pulled this look off. I love rings but Rita, honey, there’s bling and then there’s brass knuckles. No sweetie, no.

    • Darren Nesbitt

      Rita Ora is 22 years old. I think all the rings, gold polish, glitter are fine. Similar to Rhianna she has a youthful bold rocker-like spirit. Just because we see her in couture often doesn’t mean she has to “honor” it by being demure and chic all the time. How did you like to accessorize when you were 22? :)

      • formerlyAnon

        Oh dear sir. What a grave vision your last question conjures. The shame an assemblage of big-night-out photos of the Bitter Kittenry at 22 would reveal! Many of us have ‘lost’ any photographic evidence, thankfully.

    • jmorino08

      Who is she again? I mean other than someone who wears cracked out stuff that gets her featured on fashion-snark blogs?

    • Imasewsure

      I love this crazy b… would be nice if she ends up with some sort of career too (guess she’s a singer? who cares)

    • capybara_cafe

      That jumpsuit looks like it came out of an 80’s era Prince video.

      • formerlyAnon

        Overall, I view that as a plus. ;-D

    • PeaceBang

      Please don’t take me back there.

    • cowper

      I can see Gwen Stefani wearing this, with the red lips, but better hair.

    • Mona_Visa

      How should I pose on the red carpet if my jumpsuit is giving me a frontal wedgie?

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      This is what you wear when you are at an event with Beyonce and JLo and think it’s a competition. Honey, you are punching above your weight.

    • thecitysleeps

      I personally love this. It’s so specific, but she’s rocking it.

    • MoHub

      I can’t take my eyes off the gapping on the upper right, which does not occur on the runway model. The top appears to be too wide across the shoulders, and the extra fabric has nowhere to go.

    • MartyBellerMask

      I could see Gwen Stefani in this. She’s been working the harsh shoulder lately.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      How much do I want that chain link bracelet? A LOT. I don’t know, it’s a throwback all right, but she looks eye-catching and oddly wonderful to me.

    • Snailstsichr

      My first thought was sad – she had been doing so much better lately.

    • Jeff Warhurst

      Gwen Stefani is FURIOUS.

    • formerlyAnon

      For a jumpsuit, this is good. In fact, if her hair had a little bit more wave – so it looked more intentionally “done” to me, though still swept back but in smaller-but-still-big waves from her face – I’d say she’d achieved a mini-werq.

    • conniemd

      Love her make-up. She looks fab in white and gold and red. Design of jumpsuit is had.

    • Pannyx

      I cant explain why, but I love this. I think it might just be her inate fierceness

    • Not applicable

      to me she looks like the cheap version of Beyonce. It’s like when a relative buys you the “Barbie” from the drugstore… and lady, that ain’t Barbie. So that’s what I feel like saying- Honey, you ain’t Bey.

    • NOLA_gal

      Not to mention the necklaces with her initials on them. In case she forgets her name? Or maybe it’s an homage to Anne Boleyn. 360 degrees of ugh.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      In retaliation for Bey jacking her make up and hair people, Rita decided to attempt Beyonce’s single ladies bionic left arm… and failed.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Who is she?? I love this! It’s totally 80s nighttime soap opera for sure – she needs to throw another bitch down a big winding staircase!

      • Coco Cornejo

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Totally! Can’t you just hear RuPaul calling out her name on the runway, “Riiiitaaaaa Orraaaa!”, while Santino and Michelle make funny comments about what she’s wearing?

    • bertkeeter

      What’s with the “C Cup” on her left shoulder?

    • silly little thumb

      She reminds me too much of Rihanna.

    • Beverly Kozma

      The model: what’s sticking out of her head?

      • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

        i wondered that too. is it attached to what’s hanging off her arm?

        • Beverly Kozma

          I wonder how some models don’t die laughing from the crap they have to wear on the runway. I nearly do!

    • ConnieBV

      I wish she would acquaint herself with some under-eye concealer.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      better put a steak on that eye before it swells.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      those black roots combined with the short little curly hairs stuck to her forehead is making me a bit ill.

    • GTrain

      She’s always looks tacky to me. Maybe it’s the hair dye… it looks “chip” :)

    • kimiakay

      I am surprised to find I like this too, except for the little dumpling on the left shoulder. She definitely posts some attitude. I’m not crazy about all the rings, but that bracelet is fabu.

      I love this; I would live for this. As a side note, her cameo is one of a few moments (together that can be counted on one finger) that made F&F 6 somewhat bearable.
