Rita Ora does red lace at Paris Fashion Week

It’s the kind of photo (as published in today’s Daily Mail) I have nightmares about – but no matter how young/slim/attractive you are, if you will sit down in a far-too-short-skirt and ridiculous gladiator sandals, you will live to regret it.

I like Rita Ora (my man is pals with her dad, which us feel very old indeed) and I love the top half of the red lace look she wore while performing at the Etam show for Paris Fashion Week: if only she’d got the length of the dress right and ditched those awful sandals she could have looked a million dollars.

Now if I was going to try a bit of red lace for size, I’d do it as follows (keeping my thunder thighs under wraps)…

boohoo.com, £20

Miss Selfridge, £25 (reduced)
