Rita Ora was none too shy to trot out a hyper-funky and feline number on the first day of the Radio 1 Big Weekend Festival in Londonderry, Northern Ireland last Friday.
The songstress served up a main dish of outrageousness in her Roberto Cavalli Gym tracksuit that was covered in a dysfunctional mix of white-leopard print fused with yellow- and lime-green starburst patterns at the sleeves and down the baggy pant sides.
We’ve seen so many sophisticated and slinky Cavalli confections paraded out at the Cannes Film Festival. So you would be forgiven for doing a double-take (or triple-take) upon seeing this alternative piece from the designer.
This is the rambunctious side of Roberto blended up into wild-child Rita’s fashion funhouse aesthetic, which was made all the more kooky with a clumsy pair of Stella McCartney ‘Lug’ shoes from the Fall 2013 runway.
Her dip-dyed neon-yellow tips added another wack factor. All in all, there was a lot of look here, and I’m not sure even Rita could sing her way out of this one.
She deserves to take a bow, though, as I believe this might just win the prize for one of her most crazy concoctions yet.
Boom or bust?
