Rita Ora‘s “awkward mishap” is making headlines. The 29-year-old singer-songwriter, easily Instagram’s biggest bikini lover a.k.a. “Queen of Underboob”, is no stranger to challenging outfits. That said, it was the Brit’s relatively covered-up Fendi look that proved a challenge this week.
Rita is in Rome, today photographed arriving at Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana for luxury Italian designer Fendi’s fashion show. The “Anywhere” singer, dressed up to the nines in crushed velvet and flying the Fendi flag via monograms, nonetheless found herself caught in an awkward moment. Check it out below.
Scroll for the street snaps, seemingly proving a different story to the perfect photos landing on Rita’s Instagram today. The Kosovo-born beauty, posing glamorously, told her 15.9 million followers:
“Thank you so much to the beautiful @fendi family for having me today and being so kind. Congratulations @silviaventurinifendi on a beautiful collection and show. “
Rita was seen looking sensational in a black velvet blazer worn pantless, with fun fishnet stockings rising up from court heels to form a flesh-effect bootie. Speaking of booties.

Rita, also sporting dramatic metallic-gold shades, plenty of bag swag, and her hair swept into a sleek low bun, was reported to be unaware of the mishap. The ex to Rob Kardashian, now dating 38-year-old French director Romain Gavras, has also been big-time spicing up her IG. Scroll for the bikini body.
Rita’s pandemic headline-making hasn’t been dull. The star fronted media outlets in August over “blackfishing” allegations – Rita shot up Twitter trends as fans couldn’t believe she wasn’t black.
“Getting 2nd hand embarrassment from y’all thinking rita ora black,” a popular tweet read.
With two ethnically white and Albanian parents, Rita faced backlash over her braided hair looks and other instances deemed to be cultural appropriation. For many, though, Rita’s natural features were leading to them to believe she’s of color.
If anybody’s been proving that the great outdoors works wonders, it’s Rita. Her lock-down, largely coming from luxury Cotswolds cottage settings in the British countryside, have brought bikinis galore, plus this recent reminder.
“Just remember to go outside breathe in the fresh air even in midst of work spend time with yourself do what makes you feel good don’t worry what others may think of you,” Rita wrote three days ago.
“Just like people in this park thought I was crazy taking these socially distant photos and smiling and jumping around on my own but who cares…Be YOU,” she added.
