BASS Approved | Rita Ora at 2012 EMAs

 
 Just this past Sunday, all the stars put on their Sunday best for the EMA’s and Rita just happened to show up and slayed in this gown by Marchesa
 
Rita, girl you better work like you need to pay that rent! Given that the last BASS Approved post featured Naomie Harris in a lace dress, I think it’s safe to say that I love lace. 
 
This dress could have gone horribly wrong; it’s big, it’s loud, and it’s all one color. However, I believe it works because of the different textures. The bold lace at top is intricate and eye-catching (scroll down and take a look at the bottom picture #gag), but the tan of her skin offsets the ‘inyofaceness’ of the red at the bottom; In other words, it’s not too much red. 
 
The large band of fabric separating the top of the dress from the bottom accentuates her waistline and gives the dress shape. If if weren’t there ____________(fill in the blank) (2pts.) #CollegeGirl 
 
Paired with simple makeup: a red lip, winged eyeliner, and bombshell blonde hair, this look was bound to be a hit.
 
Finally, no matter how you flip it, dip it, turn it, or twist it, Rita is wearing this dress, it is not wearing her.
