Yay or Nay: Rita Ora wears Alexander McQueen

Monday November 12, 2012 by ChickAdvisor Team

When I think of Rita Ora, I think of what a love child between Gwen Stefani and Rihanna would be like. She has that Stefani trademark blonde bombshell hair and retro inspired makeup look. And yet in her fashion choices, she's all Riri (and maybe a bit of Gaga thrown in?) with bold colours and patterns. You'd think that with two powerhouse style ladies mixed together you'd get something double awesome, right?  

Well, maybe not so much. Take a look at this outfit that Rita wore at the 2012 MOBO Awards at Echo Arena in Liverpool.

This dress is so close to being cute, it's actually painful. 

The embroidered florals and the 3D flower details are adorable and sweet, and even though I'm not usually a fan of the ballet inspired tutu skirt, this works. The shoes and jewelry are a bit OTT (over the top), but gold layers are a Rita signature. My issue with this dress is that bizarre napkin-esque neckline. Like a lobster bib? A halter, a deep V or pretty much anything else would have looked better. Why they went with that is beyond me. 

What do you think of this outfit? Is it a yay or a nay? Leave a comment below with your vote by November 18th and you could win!

She has such a gorgeous face, that I didn't even pay attention to the outfit- at first.
However, upon further inspection, the outfit is a YAY because it seems to suit her bubbly personality...

Her style is awesome!

Nay! "This dress is so close to being cute, it's actually painful" is exactly what I was thinking. I love love love the pattern and the tutu skirt, but like you said, the neckline ruins the entire dress.

I love the bold colours, but the style leaves much to be desired.

She's working it. I say yay, since it looks like she has so much fun wearing it, too! Nice shoes.

I love it! It's definitely a little out there, but she can pull it off, and it's just super cute and adorable! I also love that she didn't over-do the outfit by over accessorizing; I like that she just had really simple, basic gold jewelry and shoes. Overall, an enthusiastic YAY!

I say absolutely yay for her, but on anyone else... noooo way. Go Rita!
