Behold, darlings: 2017 red carpetry, rummed up perfectly by the last person we’d expect to be that witty about it:
And just like that, Rita Ora took the loungewear trend to its most absurd point, leaving all others in the dust and closing the lid on the 2017 red carpet vogue for showing up to events without actual clothes on. Or so we’d like to think.
We are pretty sure the Bitter Kittens will remain true to their sobriquet and hate this, but we’re going to have to admit that we absolutely LOVE it. It’s hilarious and campy and fuck-you fabulous. And it was probably the most talked-about red carpet moment of the past month or so. This is how it’s done – especially for an MTV event. Sure, we could all bemoan the loss of norms and niceties, but considering how many female pop stars show up at these events dressed like strippers, clowns and circus acts, this is a fun and glamorous way of poking a stick into the modern red carpet. It almost certainly won’t become a trend (and if it does, we’ll lead the complaints), but it sure as hell produced a capital-M Moment on the red carpet.
