We ALL know that Taylor Swift pretty much has the red shade ON LOCK lately, but tonight it’s Rita Ora who’s rocking the fiery hue at the 2012 MTV EMA. Hot on the heels of her adorable new video for “Shine Ya Light,” the singer hit the red carpet in Frankfurt wearing a bright cherry-colored gown by Marchesa. It miiiight not be the only time Rita wears red tonight (hint: tune in for her performance later!), BUT this statement-making dress is definitely worth talking about right this second. With a floral embellished nude top and a voluminous long skirt, the look is yet another style departure for the pop star, who’s been trading her signature sneakers for heels recently. However, she’s not the first one to sport this long-sleeved, floral, and full-skirt combination…is it just us, or does this outfit totally remind you of Rihanna’s 2010 American Music Awards dress?!
Two years ago RiRi graced the red carpet in this sleek scarlet Elie Saab Couture number, complete with- yes, long sleeves, a sheer top, and flower detailing. WHOA, style twins much? Rita Ora and Rihanna even sported similar beauty looks (with curly hair and bold eye makeup) and kept the accessories to a minimum with gold details. The result is a case of style deja-vu that literally begs the question: although both ladies look gorgeous, whose red dress is best?
Tell us in the comments, and be sure to watch the show at 11/10c tonight on MTV2!
