Almost exactly a year ago while Rihanna was out and about promoting her scent Reb’l Fleur, we couldn’t help but notice that her feathery, bright turquoise Antonio Berardi ensemble kiiiiinnnddd of reminded us of a Muppet. Specifically, Boober. Like, LOOK AT HIM. They are basically twins! The color, the midriff fuzz—basically everything. We totally lost our shiz at this dead-on comparison until today we noticed—GASP—Rita Ora was wearing almost the same thing! She stepped out in London sporting an oversized baseball tee, thigh-high leather boots, sunnies, a red bag and, YUP, that blue Muppet fur we’re all a bit too familiar with.
Rita’s fuzzy turquoise number was an entire jacket, though, unlike Rihanna’s tank, but can we just say that we’re kind of confused by Rita’s coat? Like, what is that extra flap of fur around the top? Is she supposed to tie that? Is it a scarf attached to the coat? It’s mind boggling! Also, how is Rita not sweating?! It’s August! Whewwww, we’re gettin’ hot just looking at her. *fans self* We have to say, though, between these two Muppet-inspired ensembles, we definitely like Rihanna’s outfit better. We love her monochrome look even though it’s a bit out there, and the glam hair and nude pumps totally pull the ensemble together. Plus, she TOTALLY resembles Boober better than Rita (sorries). But tell us—which bright blue outfit do you like better—Rita Ora or Rihanna’s?
