Rita Ora is being accused of a serious fashion faux paus: stealing another woman’s look.
The British singer turned heads on the red carpet at Sunday’s VMAs with a sleek new look–which includes a blonde bob–and a very low-cut dress, and now she’s being compared to another very famous, newly-blonde singer.
“Style steal aside, we actually adore this look…but, bottom line, Rita is playing a fashion poser, which we cannot support, especially when Beyonce is involved. As much as we love this softer side of the typically edgy dresser, she’s committed too big of a couture crime in our book,” wrote J.J. Moore.
Beyonce debuted a new cropped hairstyle earlier this month with a lighter tone, then followed up with a sleek bob that made headlines (as does pretty much everything she does).
Ora did rock a stunning Alexandre Vauthier gown that boasted a 20-foot feathery train, and she did that without any help from Beyonce. The singer was one of the fashion highlights of the night, aside from Miley Cyrus and her teddy-bear onesie/nude bikini.
