What’s more badass than wearing one leather item? ALL. LEATHER. EVERYTHING. Or at least leather-look! Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora clearly feel me on this because BOTH beautiful ladies came out wearing head-to-toe leather ensembles to Paper Mag’s 8th Annual Nightlife Awards, getting a jump start on the Spring 2013 runway trend. And why shouldn’t they? Fall and winter are SO the more obvious seasons to be sporting the material given its luxurious thickness, and even if the general idea is the same, Ellie and Rita still manage to wield it in different ways. If you know us, you probably know what’s coming next. We want YOU to tell US who wore the look better!
Looks like head-to-toe leather is not just for Justin Bieber anymore. Paper Mag cover girl Ellie performed for awards event wearing a black leather peplum racerback top with matching black leather skinnies – all the better to showcase that baby pink ’do and beauty look. She rounded out the ensemble with a pair of peep-toe leather booties, keeping the look streamlined without being too heavy or clunky. Rita, on the other hand, braved a different kind of streamlining, slipping into an all-leather, long-sleeved JUMPSUIT. That’s right, y’all. That is ONE PIECE Rita is rocking on that black carpet. A leather jumpsuit is a big enough statement on its own so Rita kept the rest of her ensemble simple with classic black pumps, her signature platinum curls, and some choice jewels. Rita also swaps out her staple bright red lip for a more autumnal rich burgundy. Now it’s time for you to tell us who wore head-to-toe leather better: Ellie Goulding or Rita Ora?
