Never afraid to take fashion risks, Rita Ora made quite an entrance at Hot 99.5’s Jingle Ball 2014 held at Verizon Center in Washington, DC, on Monday. She actually looked like she was wearing the red carpet in a huge velour red plush dress with an oversized bow on one shoulder. This Viktor & Rolf dress was very festive, indeed, but very unflattering as well. According to Rita’s bizarre style standard, though, it was chic enough, and she seemed to have fun in it.
All eyes were on the 24-year-old singer in this strange outfit, which she finished with black fishnets and pointy pumps with bow details, similar to the sold-out Saint Laurent bow pumps. She wore her blond locks slicked-back straight, while her makeup included her signature red lipstick.

After striking poses on the red carpet, she took to the stage for a showstopping performance. Her last look for the holiday concert included a navy jumpsuit decorated with a number of badges, inspired by the 1986 movie Top Gun.
The British singer finished her onstage look with a pair of moto quilted ankle boots by Giuseppe Zanotti, which perfected her tough-chic getup. They are crafted from nappa leather and feature quilted vamps and diamond-quilted rear panels that make them distinct. They also have two silver-tone zippers across the front shafts, side zipper fastenings, pointed toes, and 4.5 inch heels.

These boots are sold out in many retailers, but luckily they are still on sale at Barneys.
