Fugger: Rita Ora

Fug or Fab: Rita Ora at the Bambi Awards


Well, first it was Heidi Klum going Full Coverage at the Bambi Awards, and then Rita Ora joined in:

But where Heidi’s had a lightness to it, this feels a little bogged-down. I feel like the gigantic skirt demands a simpler bodice. This just looks like it befriended a sparkly evening gown and then cruelly ate half of it.

And yet weirdly, if you stick her inside a giant flowering wreath, it starts to make sense. I think it’s because this has a real whiff of the Eurovision about it. She could be the Dutch contender, riding down an CGI river in her flotilla of blooms, singing a song about how twigs are just tentacles of peace. I’m so on board.

Soooooooo, some of these are crazy. Which I guess is business as usual, with Rita.

Fugs and Fabs: Harpers Bazaar Icons Party


We were working the red carpet at this party — which basically meant, we had a designated spot and about 96 percent of attendees blew right past it and everyone else because they’d already done the pictures and just wanted to get inside. I can attest that Katy Perry looked surprisingly good as a redhead as she hightailed it through our line of sight.

Or in pizza* terms: It’s not delivery, it’s DiGiorNOOOOOOOO.

*For the uninitiated, one day we decided we were tired of talking about sheer clothing and decided to talk about pizza instead. It’s morphed into GFY slang in which “pizza” means “sheer.”

Teen Choice Awards Fug or Fab: Rita Ora in Max Mara


I weirdly kind of like this.

Teen Choice Awards 2015 - Arrivals

I think it’s because I’ve just created an alter-ego for Rita Ora in my imagination, where she is a bad-ass business lady who marches into the office and gives everyone totally brilliant orders, right off the cuff, and doesn’t take anyone’s shit, and the Xerox always works for all, and her underlings say things to each other like, “I love her and I think she’s so smart but is it sort of weird how she’s really REALLY into being so coordinated all the time? Oh, shit, here she comes. Hand me the TPS reports!”

But if her suit is Brightly Coordinated Business, her shoes at least are ready for a party:

I am on record as being sort of Platformed-Out, but….these might be an exception.  I am a magpie. THERE IS GOLD INVOLVED.
