Rita Ora In Saint Laurent – 4th Annual ELLE Women in Music Celebration

Rita Ora In Saint Laurent - 4th Annual ELLE Women in Music Celebration

Rita Ora took to the red carpet in fine style for the 2013 Elle Women in Music Celebration, held at the Edison Ballroom in New York City yesterday evening.

On occasion, I tend to find Rita’s more theatrical looks a tad jarring, but she was surprisingly poised in this Saint Laurent Spring 2013 look.

Wearing a black tuxedo-style frock with a rise-and-fall hemline, the look features a white sequin-embellished collar, bib and cuffs with a black sheer chiffon pussybow tie.

While I’m unsure whether the hat was added as an homage to the runway look or just to cover the fact that she needs to touch up her roots, I find the overall look aesthetically pleasing – much to my surprise, I have to add.

Signature red lippie, ocean-blue nails, black Saint Laurent ankle-strap pumps and a selection of gold linked rings completed her look.

    While I’m not loving it, it’s much better than most of her red carpet looks.

    It looks like she’s wearing a costume ! Mysterious and sexy on the model though…

    “I’m melting!” Couldn’t help myself, lol. The Wicked Witch of the West head gear cracks me up.

      Exactly!

    She looks as if she is gonna hop on to the stage and start performing magic tricks to everyone’s amusement!

    First Rita look I actually like! This proves me I was right about her hair : when we don’t see her roots, she looks GREAT and NOT tacky!

    • Aline April 11, 2013 at 22:48 #

      My thoughts exactly!

    Surprisingly my first thought was, “I like this!” but I am not really sure why. I’m sure I will be in the minority but I feel like this works and she looks good!

    If Carmen Sandiego were at school, this would be her uniform, and I mean that as a compliment.

    I like this and this is actually one of the few things I have seen on Rita Ora that didn’t a)Give me a blinding migraine or b)make me want to vomit uncontrollably. So good job

    Hideous, hurts my eyes, she makes it look so cheap and costumey.

    missing maybe 5 inches in height to pull off the gown, but i’m just relieved its not from saint laurent’s fall 2013 collection.

    For me, I find Rita Ora even more unappealing than Lady Gaga. I haven’t liked her in anything, including this.

  14. adrian April 12, 2013 at 01:19 #

    Rita just doesn’t seem to get it. At all. Ever.

    • EmmaWoodhouse April 12, 2013 at 13:45 #

      +1 It’s awful. I’m grimacing.

  15. Christine April 12, 2013 at 01:35 #

    Actually she is making this work. She is rocking this look. I like it!

  16. Pedro April 12, 2013 at 03:35 #

    Rita with this look: nice

    Gwen Stefani with this look: AMAZING

    Rita always try so hard. The pose, the style… everything

  18. Noemi April 12, 2013 at 08:53 #

    I like it,but I would have left the hat at home.
