Rita Ora In Donna Karan Atelier – 2014 Met Gala

Rita Ora In Donna Karan Atelier - 2014 Met Gala

Rita Ora couldn’t be missed on the red carpet of the 2014 Met Gala, hosted on Monday (May 5) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Rocking a romantic rendition of her signature sexy, loud style, the songstress swooped in wearing a Donna Karan Atelier antiqued matte gold and sequined silk tulle gown with a long frothy train.

Lest all that tulle get in the way of her requisite skin-bearing ways, a hip-high slit parted the sea of fabric, allowing her strappy pumps, which wrapped all the way up and over the knee, to lead the charge.

The bondage-inspired shoes also paved the way for the Donna Karan Atelier matching armband, while Lorraine Schwartz jewels, including a barrage of rings, added even more shine to the look.

She perhaps found inspiration in last year’s punk theme for her half-shaven, swept-back platinum ’do.

While this is a softer, more delicate confection, there was no shortage of sultry edge once placed within Rita’s grasp.

    worst of the night…this woman seriously has no taste

    Well… this is the definition of “Trying really hard.”

    The shoes ruin the look for me. Had she opted for a sandal, I think I would have liked it.

    The dress is tacky to start with. Rita dragged it through the muck of Oh-Honey-No about a dozen times. Ergo, fail.

    Oh lord.. What was she thinking? And who even invited her to this?!?! Agree that this is a total WDOTY-moment!

    She didn’t need to add the “glove” and “boots” to this to turn heads, she would’ve looked amazing in just the dress. This will make her cringe when she looks back.

      The story of Rita’s life. She’s always doing the most, smh.

    Oh, dear…

    honey no! that’s just an awful sight

    This is so bad that I’m just like Christine, I can’t stop laughing. The gown is awful on its own, but Rita made it even worse with her terrible and tacky styling. WDOTY contender.

    Oh oh oh wow. I can’t wait to see the award name FC can come up with for this one. WOW.

    If you look hard enough you can see, at the center of this Amazon-cowboy contraption, a poor dress trying to escape, held hostage by beige vines and satin bridesmaid shoes.

    The dress is quite nice, but I just can’t get past that accesories, ew!

    As Always: TACKY!
    The worst dress to me this year. A disaster!

  14. Hermoine May 6, 2014 at 02:23 #

    Maybe she was also playing with her cat and accidentally got wrapped up in the ribbon they were playing with??!!

    I don’t hate it, but I definitely don’t love it. Rita does nothing for this gown. It could have been beautiful with a better presentation. The armbands are horrible. This is a sad night for fashion.

  16. Nat39 May 6, 2014 at 02:12 #

    The delicate gown has some potential but Rita killed it with vulgar presentation.

  17. Christine May 6, 2014 at 02:11 #

    LMAO. I am crying in tears. The biggest fail and joke of the night. I mean Donna Karan, what is happening here.

    WOW. This is comical that I just can’t stop laughing. WDOTY worthy definitely

      Oh, I don’t know… Kate Upton really outdid herself.

      • Christine May 6, 2014 at 02:18 #

        The lace up shoes killed it for me along with the cheese factor arm-band. Kate did terribly as well.

        • Edie May 6, 2014 at 02:22 #

          Agreed. I don’t envy FC in putting together the bottom part of her awards list. 😉

  18. effieee May 6, 2014 at 02:10 #

    The armband? Those pumps? That red lip?

    This is awful.

    There is a lot going on here….Sometime less is indeed better.

  20. CTgirl May 6, 2014 at 02:09 #

    Donna Karan has lost her mojo. That is the only explanation for this mess and the one that Nicole Richie is wearing.
