The last time we saw Rita Ora, she was wearing a sexy cat woman leather costume for a party at a London nightclub. On Monday morning, she was all yellow and polka-dotted in a head-to-toe SpongeBob SquarePants ensemble. The 23-year-old singer went to the BBC Radio 1 studios in London to premiere her latest single “I’ll Never Let You Down”.
It’s hard to look sexy when you have a goofy-looking SpongeBob face plastered on your clothes. However, Rita totally pulled off this jumper dress and even the matching shoes.

After her radio guesting, the Brit pop star went out to Leicester Square with a handful of balloons to celebrate with her fans.

We first saw Rita’s dress and shoes at the Moschino Fall/Winter 2014 show during Milan Fashion Week in February. Designer Jeremy Scott showcased his first collection for the brand and turned to inspirations like fast food and, yes, SpongeBob.
While we never expected to see such a character being paraded on the runways of Milan, we applaud this designer’s bravery and out-of-the-box creativity.
However cute these pieces may be, it’s going to be hard to pull any of them off. Unless, of course, you’re a fashion model or like Rita Ora can look effortlessly fabulous even in quirky clothes.
Are you ready to splurge on these SpongeBob-inspired items once they hit retail stores?
