This is awkward. I wore the exact same thing to work this morning, too.
Okay, I know some of you are going to think I have lost my mind here, but bear with me:
Rita Ora is bringing us true Scruples realness this August! THAT IS HONESTLY A VALUABLE PUBLIC SERVICE. We NEED someone who will stomp down the streets of New York looking like she might be on her way to start a multi-million dollar shopping empire, circa 1984!
Sure, this dress does over a plasticized interpretation of bunny ears layered over its bodice, but it’s still, somehow, one of the best things Rita Ora has ever put on her body. Yes, that is definitely grading on a curve, but STILL!
This may also be the first time that working on America’s Next Top Model has actually had a salubrious sartorial effect on its host. Right, Tyra?
Because I assume this means there will be a segment on the next cycle of America’s Next Top Model wherein Rita here performs a shot-by-shot reenactment of the “Oops, I Did It Again” video.
Rita Ora has been leaving the house SO MUCH LATELY. So I may have developed some level of Stockholm Syndrome with her. Having introduced that caveat: Is this not a HUGE upgrade in her usual?
It’s downright…reasonable? And cute? And unfettered by bizarro shenanigans? Is this how you do it? Look crazy all the time, so when you pop out looking halfway realistic, everyone acts as if you mastered cold fusion?
I have never in my life consistently had to cobble together this many thoughts about Rita Ora. I don’t even think I HAVE enough thoughts about Rita Ora to match the number of times she’s leaving the house lately.
She may surf this ANTM wave straight to the Fug Madness Final Four. This isn’t nearly the worst of it, but the pants aren’t stellar and the shirt is… a wrap-snap vest that is trying to self-remove. Actually… honestly, this doesn’t strike me as being so far from something Tyra herself would wear. Perhaps Rita is channeling her. “O Captain, My Captain,” she might whisper, daily, as she climbs atop an end table and gazes at a photo taped to the wall.
I’m not kidding. Rita Ora taking over ANTM for Tyra is, as the kids say, giving me life. She’s CONSTANTLY wandering the streets in something wacky. This is all I ask of random celebrities! When you wander the street, DO IT IN SOMETHING WACKY.
