Rita Ora In Acne Studios & Roberto Cavalli – Out In Manchester

Rita Ora In Acne Studios & Roberto Cavalli - Out In Manchester

British pop singer Rita Ora is currently in Manchester, England where she is appearing as a guest judge on ‘The Voice’.

Lowry Hotel: The singer was spotted arriving at the Lowry Hotel on Monday (September 29)wearing an Acne Resort 2015 bottle-green mesh top and leather pants styled with printed Chanel Fall 2014 sneakers. This sporty ode to the 80s was of course featuring a glossy red lip.

Dinner: And the red lip was still very firmly in place when she headed to dinner with ‘The Voice’ judges that same evening. The singer wore an all-black Roberto Cavalli look featuring gold grommet detailing for a tougher edge, which she styled with black cut-out ankle boots and a Versace Signature ‘Lock’ bag.

There is something very JLo about the second look; the first is much more in keeping with her own style.

Iggy Azalea In Opening Ceremony & Rita Ora In Philipp Plein – KISS FM

Iggy Azalea In Opening Ceremony & Rita Ora In Philipp Plein - KISS FM

‘Black Widow’ duo Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora made a guest appearance on KISS FM’s breakfast show on Thursday (September 18) in London, England which aired today.

Iggy Azalea: Enhancing her famous curves in a pair of white skinny jeans, the rapper also wore an Opening Ceremony ‘Keaton’ sweater which she styled with nude Rupert Sanderson pumps and a pair of shades. It was quite a mild day in London yesterday, so I feel for her with these sweat-inducing furry sleeves.

Rita Ora: By Rita’s standards this look was relatively tame. The lip-embroidered crop top and jeans look from Philipp Plein’s Resort 2015 collection was no doubt a subtle nod to her love for the crimson shade, which was of course applied to her own lips. Taking her love for the colour one step further, she accessorized her look with Christian Louboutin ‘Snakilta’ studded booties, which pack quite a mighty punch.

Rita Ora In Fyodor Golan & Richard Nicoll – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire

Rita Ora In Fyodor Golan - O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire

Rita Ora was spotted headed to Iggy Azalea’s concert held at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, England yesterday evening (September 17) before heading to the Box Nightclub for her own performance.

Diane Kruger was the first to bag herself a look fresh off the Prabal Gurung Spring 2015 runway, then Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and here we see Rita following up.

The British red-lip-loving singer wore a Fyodor Golan Spring 2015 mirrored outfit consisting of a cropped jacket and A-line skirt paired with a Richard Nicoll Swarovski power stretch crop top.

The 90s holographic trend had a mini resurgence on the Spring 2013 runways, and it looks like Rita is bringing it back for 2015.

You can’t look at this without the word futuristic coming to mind, and while this is quite a tricky look to pull off I think Rita has the personality and attitude to make it work.

Do you agree or will nothing she wears work for you?

Marchesa Spring 2015 Front Row

Marchesa Spring 2015 Front Row

Celebrities gathered to celebrate red carpet queens Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, who returned home to London to showcase their Marchesa Spring 2015 collection on the 10th anniversary of the brand.

Jena Malone: The ‘Hunger Games’ actress was perched in the front row wearing a distinctive Marchesa frock in a rich teal hue, deconstructed to create a gorgeous kilt dress rendered with 3D mohair thistle embroidery. I love her complementary eye makeup, which further emboldened the look along with her gold sparkling Louboutins.

Rita Ora: The singer ditched the red lip in favour of a deep-berry hue for her part-glamorous, part-I’m-not-sure-what’s-up-with-that-hairstyle look. She wore a Marchesa Spring 2011 blush-pink draped chiffon one-shoulder jumpsuit with black tassels on the train. The hair is too harsh for the look, but you have to – on some level – admire her for keeping things varied and interesting. She was asked by a reporter to name her favourite Marchesa red carpet look; having worn Marchesa four times previously to the Elle Style Awards, the BBC Radio One Teen Awards, the 2013 Glamour Woman of the Year Awards, and the 2012 EMAs, she said that the red embroidery and taffeta gown from the EMAs was her favourite look. When asked by the journalist where she had worn the look, Rita appeared to go blank and say “Ummm…”, at which point I interjected by saying “the MTV Awards”, to which she looked up at me with some confusion, then turned to the journalist and replied “Yeah, the EMAs”.

Rita Ora In Stéphane Rolland Couture – Fashion Rocks 2014

Rita Ora In Stéphane Rolland Couture - Fashion Rocks 2014

Rita Ora also made a grand entrance when she took to the red carpet at Fashion Rocks 2014, presented by Three Lions Entertainment, at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on Tuesday (September 9) in New York.

She took the opportunity to play an extreme game of dress-up in a Stéphane Rolland Fall 2014 Couture gown that was every bit of an abstract art piece and architectural feat.

The black silhouetted bodice and illusion lining transitioned to a backless design, accented by spindly embellishment, before giving way to a full, tulle-laced tutu skirt underscored by a train of sheer black chiffon.

Adding her own signature quirk factor, the songstress put plenty of sass into the avant-garde sophistication of the design, wearing her platinum locks tied into a row of knots atop her head.

This strange mohawk-esque moment didn’t belong anywhere near the gown, and if there was ever a time for Rita to rock her signature red lip, this was it. I also longed for the skinny belt seen on the model for a waist-defining finish.

As with many of her looks, I’m sure this one will be a divisive design. With better styling, this statement would have been one intriguing fashion sculpture to not soon forget.

REVEAL Calvin Klein Fragrance Launch Party

REVEAL Calvin Klein Fragrance Launch Party

As a part of the New York Fashion Week happenings, Calvin Klein launched their new fragrance REVEAL at a grand party at 4 World Trade Center on Monday (September 8), and the event was a star-studded affair.

Amber Heard: The actress and fiancée of Johnny Depp wore a black and navy overlay effect Calvin Klein dress with skyhigh metallic sandals, a gold box clutch and a dramatic beauty look featuring a deep side part and purple smokey eyes.

Rita Ora: A black leather Calvin Klein shift dress and strapped sandals manages to be simultaneously edgy and chic on Rita, and I love how ahead of the fashion curve she is with the gold choker. Classic Rita red lips, and retro-inspired curls are accented by a bright red beauty mark beneath her left eye.

Iggy Azalea: Taking a very grown-up approach to the evening, Iggy wore a short-sleeved, camel-colored Calvin Klein leather trench with knee high boots. You can tell the coat feels like butter, and I’m really digging Iggy’s secret agent-inspired look. Dark, smokey eyes and Pepto pink lips and a sleek ponytail top the whole thing off.
