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.

Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2012 Couture Collection

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!

  • alyce1213

    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*

    • 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.

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

      • 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.

    • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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

      A drag-a-lishious British singer

      • 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?

    • 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.

  • better put a steak on that eye before it swells.

  • 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.
