Fug or Fab: Rita Ora


I’d like to publicly thank Rita Ora. On days like today — when most celebrities of interest are off on their yachts, or looking pedestrian in work-out gear at Bristol Farms, or busy with their new baby on an English estate somewhere — she can be relied upon to leave the house in something I’d personally call, “Actually Pretty Cute Except For That One Part:”

“That One Part” being, of course, the fact that I think she’s hoiked the skirt waaaay up on one side so we can see that her….boots….have…garters? You guys, I don’t even know what those words mean in that order.

    Well, um…she sure does have pretty cleavage!?

    Except for that one part? I dunno, this looks like 100% parts of fug.

    I think the skirt is deliberately cut that way.

    This could work onstage, IMO. But nowhere else.

      Actually, it’s a regular straight-hemmed dress in the look book for Just Cavalli Spring 2013 – Rita or her stylist seemed to have cut it asymmetrically.

      Per usual with her, I find this tacky. The only saving grace are the beautiful colors against the crisp white of the jacket, which is a beautiful combination – but on someone else, not her.

        …Rita or her stylist seemed to have cut it asymmetrically.

        So it’s deliberately cut that way.

    Black garter with white thigh-high boots = TACKY

    Everyone knows you need to MATCH your garter to your boots!

    The outfit is hideous and as usual, very tacky.
    Something about her hair that way makes her look like a small woodland creature.

      OMG you are so right! Like a cross between a deer and a bunny.

    Maybe the garter is to keep the skirt hiked up? Kinda like when you accidentally tuck your skirt into your underwear? This girl must be broke. She forgot to pay her electric bill and got dressed in the dark.

    Those. Boots. Are. Killing. Me. Softly.

    That is a whole lotta crazy…from the hair…to the screaming lipstick that clashes with the dress…to the capulets on white sleeves…to the watch plus 5 bracelets (really did this need even one bracelet)…to the leotard like look of the dress from her sternum to her crotch…to the asymmetry of the dress…to the boots with garters…CRAYYYYZAAAAY.

    I LOVE THIS. I’m trying not to, I know it’s wrong, but she looks like a neon superhero. I don’t know why that appeals to me, but here we are.

    I would like this on Solange.

    Mostly because Solange would have the good sense to NOT SHOW HER DAMN GARTER BELT (I think). (Okay, I HOPE. But Solange wouldn’t let me down…right?)
