Rita Ora in DKNY in London

Posted on July 10, 2013

We’ll give her this: she really commits to a look.


Rita Ora is spotted leaving a Notting Hill Recording Studio in London, UK in DKNY.

It’s all a little robot-girl to us. We wouldn’t like seeing that much metallic in one outfit for a public appearance, but it makes a perfect pap shot ensemble. It’s attention-seeking as hell. It’s stagewear, in a way. “HERE’S ME, LEAVING A RECORDING STUDIO, WORLD. GUESS WHAT I WAS DOING IN THERE?’ In that sense, nicely done, Rita.

But even so, that top and purse do absolutely nothing for the look. If you’re gonna do the full-on astronaut look, your pops of color need to be a bit more declarative than a couple of lame pastels. Reds and blacks; maybe a bold blue or purple.

      I think it’s stunning. and those expressions are PRICELESS.

    • Clueless_Jock

      Head to toe metallic can easily add 30 pounds to photos. But miraculously she looks pretty good.

    • frannyprof

      Why is she making that ridiculous face?!

      • CT14

        “Why I had NO IDEA photographers would be here!”

      What this look needs is some screaming safety orange.

    • Annarosa

      maybe she knows that the top is not ok for the look. or is it so cold in NY?

      • marlie

        She’s in London, but it can get chilly at night there, even during the summer.

    • gabbilevy

      I was gonna say, her face looks super cute, and then I got to those last couple photos. Cracked up.

      It’s a bad sign when your purse brings to mind a pat of butter on a baked potato.

      • maggiemaybe

        Those potatoes bake soooo nicely when they’re wrapped in aluminum foil. Mmmm… now I’m hungry.

          Thank god this wasn’t a Kelly Osborne post or I would have gotten banned from this site.

    • Prudentia

      And now we know what became of the actor who played Viserys Targaryen. (Him, there in the background….just sayin’.)

    • YoungSally

      Danger Will Robinson!!

      I don’t mind the top, but the bag is far too granny looking for this look. Am I the only one who confused, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea and Azalea banks in print. I see the name and have no idea who is is who until I see a picture. Then I remember it’s Banks that I can’t stand.

      • formerlyAnon

        Ora is the only one for whom I can ever conjure up a mental image, because I really, really like her looks and that perplexes me because I also usually am thinking “girl you’d be so gorgeous if you’d only change at least 2 major and one minor thing going on above your neck and 1 thing below” when I see a photo.

        • MilaXX

          For me it’s the names and the look. Ora & Iggy both have the pretty girl thing gong for them, but then I have to stop & think which Azeala is which

    • marlie

      You know, for her, I kind of like this. I would have gone with a different purse, but it’s a fun look overall.

    • IAmJ

      Her skin looks divine.

      • Little_Olive

        Yes! Actually, aside form the outfit, she looks way way better than when she is in heavy hair and makeup.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      Introspective be knowing.

      Remember wayyyyy back when, when 2013 sound SO. FAR. AWAY. and we imagined what life may be like in The Future. I feel like this is then in clothing form.

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      maybe another blouse and bag…

    • Lori

      I’m thinking less robot and more walking baked potato. That could be because I haven’t had lunch yet.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      I think if her bag and top were some kind of bold pattern full of neon colors this would be fabulous. But I’m just tacky like that. haha

    • decormaven

      I love how the guy in the background is almost photobombing her. I’m more interested in looking at his carryall than her yellow purse.

      • sunnycalif

        I thought they both bought the same wig! It’s identical hair!

        • decormaven

          Right you are! That is truly spectacular.

    • prettybigkitty

      Is she covering up hickeys on her neck?

      • formerlyAnon

        She’s in London. This thing they call “summer” doesn’t mean it’s actually warm. Especially at night.

    • carnush

      I don’t think I’ve ever seen her smile before. She should do it more in front of cameras.

    • SewingSiren

      I think her personal style is fabulous. The only thing I can’t sign off on is the bag.

    • Anniebet

      She forgot her tin foil hat. That would have completed the look.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Ran a marathon AND did some recording? Homegirl is busy.

    • Kate Andrews

      She always reminds me of Gwen Stefani, with the blonde hair and red lips. I actually like this outfit. The cut of the jacket is awesome.

    • formerlyAnon

      She’s doing the right thing – wearing this kinda harsh monochrome silver while she’s young and lovely. ‘Cause there’s a shelf life on being able to pull that off.

    • Lizzy

      Is she the new spokeswoman for Reynolds Wrap?

    • rougeort

      _judy jetson leaving the office for happy hour?_
      That, my dears, is one beautiful description. BRAVA.

    • BrooklynBomber

      I can tell you one thing: she was not in that recording studio to work. Not in that get up.

    • RuthGo

      My thought was, if I were a celebrity, I’d want to wear a silver metallic suit. I totally can’t fault her.

    • Slanted & Enchanted

      This would be 10x more awesome if that skirt was a pair of silver metallic hot pants instead.
