Who Wore Saint Laurent Better…Rita Ora or Anna Dello Russo

Rita Ora vs Anna Dello Russo in Saint Laurent

For the Elle Women in Music Celebration last month many of you thought that Rita Ora’s Saint Laurent Spring 2013 tuxedo dress was a tad costumey.

While I see your point, I also think it was a fashion risk that paid off, so I am not surprised to see the ultimate fashion risk taker Anna Dello Russo also wearing the same look, hat and all.

The Vogue Nippon editor-at-large was also at the Vogue Festival this past weekend speaking on her second favourite topic – blogging.

Anna opted for tights and t-bar pumps to Rita’s bare legs and pumps.

I’m going to give this one to Rita. This look is very much expected from Anna, so Rita wins on the element of surprise, plus I prefer the fit, which appears to be much looser on Anna.

    I don’t like this look very much but I have to choose Anna Dello Russo as it is a perfect example of her over the top, highly individual style. She also has the stature and legs for the tuxedo tails to hang properly, and not in a crumpled heap as on Rita Ora. Ms Ora does not have a style she owns so this looks pretentious and try hard on her.

      ITA, this is totally Anna, whether one likes it or not. She’s just incompromising whereas Rita is just a blank slate.

    They both look ridiculis.

    The hat makes Anna look like an old witch.

      Hahaha, that’s exactly why I prefer Rita.

      Anna has great legs, but I’m totally getting a sexy Wicked Witch of the West vibe from her. Rita gets my vote here – can’t believe I just typed that.

    I never ever thought I would say this but I’m giving it to Rita! I much prefer her styling.

    I think the hat makes this look costumey. I would prefer this without the hat. With that being said, I think Rita looks better in the outfit.

    I can’t look beyond Anna’s slouch and hunched shoulders. For someone who works in fashion, she’s got awful posture.

    I totally dislike this look for starters–it’s like cowboy Vegas schoolmarm. Seriously?
    I really disliked it on Rita, but Anna’s fishnet tights bring it to the next level of tacky, so Rita for the…less loser.

    Rita has neither stature nor presence to carry it off, and Anna made it look trashy with the fishnet tights. Still choosing Anna as this works so much better on her figure and for her stronger persona, she is commanding this look whereas Rita looks intimidated by it.

    Rita has the better hat, the better shoes and didn’t wear ugly tights so she wins… well, she doesn’t lose :D
