Rita Ora In Elie Saab – Out In Amsterdam

Rita Ora In Elie Saab - Out In Amsterdam

This weekend Rita Ora posted a picture on her Instagram which I hadn’t seen before, so in going in search of the picture I discovered that it was taken while she was in Amsterdam, Netherlands following her appearance at the EMAs.

I’m not sure where she was going (possibly the show’s after-party), but she should’ve saved this Elie Saab beauty for a red-carpet event.

The long-sleeved coral gown with a lace bodice and crepe wraparound skirt was of course styled (let down) with that harsh red lip.

Her mix of silver and gold jewels was also overplayed here, with simple gold strappy sandals completing the look.

    I feel terribly sorry for this beautiful dress. It deserves someone better! It’s Incredible how SHE makes it look cheap

    Eek, I too think Rita destroys this dress, it looks so cheap and tacky on her.Imagine how different it would look if someone like Camilla Belle wore this dress.

    Elie Saab is at this minute banging his head against a wall screaming ‘Why Me?’. Such a shame for such a beautiful dress. Hair and makeup is the worst of all.

    Atrocious, I don’t care how much we would have liked to see this gorgeous dress worn correctly. This is not it.

  5. Pedro November 19, 2013 at 10:37 #

    Rita, you’re not Rihanna.
    I’m SO tired of this girl!

  6. Larissa November 19, 2013 at 09:04 #

    My eyes are actually hurting- what a waste of a wonderful dress.. Don’t even get me started on hair& makeup. This gown would have been perfect on Keira Knightley or Kasia Smutniak.

  7. Stel November 18, 2013 at 19:53 #

    She’s so confusing.. I really don’t understand what her style is.. really, really don’t..

    • Liz November 18, 2013 at 23:42 #

      You’re not confused. She just doesn’t have ANY style.

  8. Cristina November 18, 2013 at 19:52 #

    Why does she insist on wearing that dreadful wig?! Somehow she turned a stunning gown into something cheap-looking.

  9. sara November 18, 2013 at 19:46 #

    Gorgeous gown wasted… so sad. wrong place and person.

  10. naya November 18, 2013 at 19:34 #

    it’s such a shame seeing this beautiful gown look cheap and trashy!

  11. H November 18, 2013 at 19:30 #

    Since everybody else has already commented on her make up and hair, I won’t talk about it (not that I’m interested either); but I have to say this is one the most beautiful sartorial pieces this girl has worn, if not the most, and SHE IS THE RIGHT PERSON to wear it with that gorgeous body of hers so I wouldn’t mind if I have seen it on her but in the right occasion, something like the Brit Awards or the Grammy’s, not just for some outing or party.

    Can I please cry my eyes out? I look at this dress on the runway and then I look at Rita Ora. Sad waste of a gorgeous dress thanks to cheap styling. She really shouldn’t go for stuff that doesn’t stick to her style sensibility and this definitely doesn’t!

    • Ahot November 19, 2013 at 15:20 #

      Lol, i am crying with you. But the people @ Saab must be whipped for letting her get near such an exquisite design.
      She is too quirky for his classy designs. Really.

  13. Regina November 18, 2013 at 18:50 #

    The styling is awful, but the dress looks better on her than on the model.

  14. milex November 18, 2013 at 18:18 #

    The make up is so bad, specially with the dress.

  15. naama November 18, 2013 at 17:58 #

    what is up with the red lip fixation?! enough already!! it’s like she’s forcing it on every look regardless of what she’s wearing i just can’t take this woman seriously!

  16. Malinda Jane November 18, 2013 at 16:16 #

    As per usual, her makeup doesn’t work with this look at all. That’s the problem with having a “signature” makeup look; it doesn’t go with everything.
    I like it from the neck down, but her hair and makeup ages her terribly.

  17. Christine November 18, 2013 at 16:02 #

    Really hoped this beautiful gown hit a red carpet soon.

  18. Katrine November 18, 2013 at 15:42 #

    She murdered Elie Saab, it is so disappointing. She really brings the trashiness to this exquisite dress. Leave it to the Fan Bing Bing’s and Elizabeth Banks of the world Rita.

  19. Sanya November 18, 2013 at 14:52 #

    Oh dear! She made Elie Saab look cheap, but really cheap 🙁

    • anonymous as always November 19, 2013 at 00:41 #

      Well that is an achievement if you think about it. I mean it’s really difficult to make an Elie Saab dress look cheap XD

    • Dhppy November 19, 2013 at 20:39 #

      Sadly, this is so.

  20. kane November 18, 2013 at 14:49 #

    This must be the most vulgar an Elie Saab has ever looked. Didn’t think it possible. Congrats, Rita.

    • Alina November 18, 2013 at 14:55 #

      ITA. She ruined the dress… Just imagine it on someone like Emily Blunt. <3

      • Marta November 18, 2013 at 15:38 #

        This dress and Emily would be a match made in heaven.

      I’m shocked this is Elie Saab tbh. It’s way too pink. Love the design but if the whole dress needs to be pink, a different shade on the bottom is definitely needed IMO.

      But Rita – boy has she ruined further though. The hair, horrible. The make-up, did she use a mirror? The lip-stick, I didn’t think there would be a time Xtina was not the one being criticised for over doing red lips.

      AND the over-accessorising. Give it a rest, you’re not Rihanna.

  21. Beth Rodrigues November 18, 2013 at 14:33 #

    why bleached blond locks? Auburn, Rust, Caramel,anything but bleached!!! Otherwise, I rather like it!

  22. Raquel November 18, 2013 at 14:28 #

    Horrible makeup.

  23. julyol1972 November 18, 2013 at 14:23 #

    Why let her spoil such a beautiful dress on just an afterparty? Rita Oro is not the awards show moment that dress deserved.

    • Alice November 18, 2013 at 15:32 #

      Could not agree more, what a waste!

  24. Juliana November 18, 2013 at 14:17 #

    I think the dress itself looks great on her, but the only thing that is working on the rest of the look is the strappy sandals, everything else is a miss, in my opinion.

    • SilentVisitor November 18, 2013 at 16:15 #

      I agree. She looks good from the neck down

  25. Pablo November 18, 2013 at 14:15 #

    Oh no! I’m sorry, I’m really not fond of Rita Ora.
    To me she makes this beautiful gown look cheap.
    What a waste, I hope it gets another outing!

      I can’t stand this girl. She is not fashionable.

    • Nat November 18, 2013 at 17:18 #

      +3 and her make up and hair does not goes with this gown

    • Anj November 18, 2013 at 17:26 #

      This is an absolute DISASTER. Everything below the waist is okay but she looks like a cracked out barbie otherwise. I HATE her hair. Someone should come into her room in the middle of the night and dye it already!
      I’m not even going to comment about that terrible makeup…

      • KatieKate November 18, 2013 at 21:34 #


      • AnderBoBo November 19, 2013 at 00:09 #

        LOL, I totally agree! I can’t help but think she must be an absolute monster in real life because you think she’d have at least one friend pull her aside and talk her off that hair and makeup ledge.

      • Jerusa November 20, 2013 at 16:18 #

        It´s actually a wig! Jajaja someone, please take that thing off!!

      • towanda November 20, 2013 at 17:10 #

        LOL agree about hair and makeup. She needs to dye her hair

    • anonymous as always November 18, 2013 at 17:29 #

      +4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Poor dress!!!

      • bas November 18, 2013 at 17:56 #

        poor, poor dress…

  26. amy November 18, 2013 at 14:14 #

    the dress is lovely, there’s some boobs action going on but no big deal. However the makeup is awful and the bleached hair isn’t doing her any favor. She looks old. too bad cause the dress is a catch

    • Noemi November 18, 2013 at 18:50 #

      I agree, the dress is classy on the model and quite tacky on her, also because of the styling. This dress needs small breasts.
