Taika Waititi & Rita Ora made their red-carpet couple debut at an LA premiere

Warner Bros. Premiere Of "The Suicide Squad"  in LA

Red carpets are back, people. Premiere events are back! Last night, The Suicide Squad premiered in LA and I don’t see anyone with a mask. I would hope that everyone has been vaccinated, and that people had to show their vaccination cards to walk the carpet. Ordinarily, I would have made Margot Robbie the “star” of this post since she is the star of the film. But Taika Waititi and Rita Ora made their “red carpet couple debut” at this premiere, so now they’re getting all of the attention. Taika and Rita got together several months ago in Australia. Taika was hard at work on Thor: Love and Thunder and Rita was in town for The Voice: Australia. Love blossomed as most people were just stuck in Australia indefinitely because of the pandemic. And so here we are: Taika and Rita, love and thunder. I hate her outfit! He looks nice though.

Margot Robbie in Chanel. The pants are so unflattering! It’s bonkers to see this trouser cut come back into style, it’s so dated and fug. Margot manages to look lovely despite a bad Chanel look.

John Cena dressed up for the red carpet. I guess I don’t get it, but sure.

Storm Reid had one of the best looks of the red carpet. She looked so cool!

Kate Beckinsale should have checked out the carpet/poster color scheme ahead of time because she’s blending into both.

    Oh dear.

  2. Monette says:

    Why was Kate there? Is she in it?

  3. girl_ninja says:

    Does she even “sing” anymore? Is she just a girlfriend to her boyfriends now?

    What does she do?

    • Jane says:

      The article says she was in town for The Voice, so I’m assuming that’s what she’s doing for work right now.

    • shanaynay says:

      Lol this reminds me of some comment I read/heard somewhere where it felt like Rita Ora has been “up and coming” for the last ten years. Always up and coming and never established. I couldn’t name or sing a single song of hers.

  4. Merricat says:

    Storm Reid is the only one who actually looks good, imo–although I do kind of dig the mini dress on Cena’s date. I don’t like the fit of Taika Waititi’s suit.

  5. Lara says:

    Margots outfit is honestly disgusting. Like I’m having a physical reaction looking at it.

    • Hica says:

      Reminds me of the “can’t touch this” MCHammer pants from 80s.

    • Sarah B says:

      It’s giving me bridal genie vibes.

    • Meg says:

      I really hope she gets a new stylist. To look this bad, a woman as stunning as her takes effort by her team around her.

    • Captainette says:

      Whenever I see Margot’s outfits all I can think is her stylist absolutely hates her. How else would you justify dressing a drop dead gorgeous woman in the ugliest ensembles. OBJECTIVELY hideous! She needs a stylist that doesn’t ruin her. it’s become the norm & it’s clearly being done on PURPOSE

      Rita looks like a futuristic maxipad

  6. August Rain says:

    Ooohh bless. It looks like her Miss Congeniality band slid down to her hips.

    I loved Thor Ragnarok so much (and I am really not the target for those kinds of franchise) and Jojo Rabbit, so I prefer not to know much more about Taika Waititi’s messy private life.

    • Captainette says:

      If Taika’s personal assistant he left his wife for, then fired, files her rumored wrongful termination suit it’ll be hard to ignore his drama!

      He’s wonderfully creative but a total fckboi & ass to his kids/their mother 😊 that is if he even sees them anymore. Most men in HW are awful.

  7. Ariel says:

    Is Ms Ora a lady who is built straight up and down and trying to give exaggerate her hips with that dress?

  8. smee says:

    I’d like to speak with the manager regarding Rita’s skirt please.

  9. anna says:

    i think they look hot. really hot. so hot, in fact, it makes me overlook her strange outfit.

  10. Jo73c says:

    The red carpet is representative of how bad I think the movie will be.
    Margot Robbie’s outfit is so bad my eyes are refusing to focus on it. Storm Reid’s is better, but only by comparison. Taika Waititi’s would look better without Rita Ora (as would anyone). Regarding Kate Beckinsdale. Why is she (1) there? (2) Dressed like Mildred Roper?

    • August Rain says:

      I think Beckinsale would have been so happy in the late 50’s and 60’s. She is clearly in the market for a time machine.

    • Scal says:

      She’s in a new movie with Jai Courtney who is in Suicide Squad. She was there as his guest and to promote their other film at the same time.

  11. Ainsley7 says:

    Margot’s outfit reminds me of princess jasmine costumes for little kids with “skin colored” parts attached for modesty/warmth. I wouldn’t exactly consider them a good inspiration for adult fashion…

  12. cassandra says:

    There’s a lot of “Why is” on this carpet

  13. Sof says:

    Everyone looks weird. I actually like Kate Beckinsale’s dress, perhaps in another shade it would have looked better.
    I wonder if this Suicide Squad will be any good? I remember that no one was trying to pretend with the first one, not even in the promotional tour and interviews.

  14. browniecakes says:

    Taika looks tired. Busy guy. Rita and I both have great calves and chubby thighs. I wonder how she sat down with the bow situation. Where is (ever) Margo’s husband? Did Idris attend? He seems like the guy who goes from job to job without a break.

  15. Anna says:

    I actually think they look great together.

  16. Calypso says:

    Taika publicly dating a woman who is very openly blackfishing makes me like him less. Blergh.

    Storm Reid looks very cool, I love the way she’s using hair as an accessory to pose with, I love it.

  17. Green Desert says:

    Taika and Rita look great together. Beautiful couple, IMO. I have just gotten “messy” vibes from both of them separately for quite a while now and I feel like they may be messy together. But hey, I hope they’re having fun!

  18. wickedvmac says:

    These comments are straight up mean girl energy. Sending the best to the celebrities featured in this post because, wow, they are people with feelings.

    • Anna says:

      Maybe a site like Celebitchy –note the word “bitchy” in the name–is not the best for you. I’m over this leveling of “mean”. This is a gossip site ffs.

    • Captainette says:

      Are you new…???? It’s celebitchy. This is just for fun, it’s not serious. Feel free to find a knitting circle on facebook 😆 maybe you’ll find out what *actual* Mean Girl Energy IS in that setting, Karen ❤️

  19. SM says:

    I wanted to write something about Taika’s hot mess of the midlife crisis, but then I saw Margot’s outfit. Her stylist must hate her. My dear God, on what planet does one put that on and thinks “this is good”. What exactly is going on her, isn’t she the main star of this mayor film and this is what she gets? She deserves better.

  20. L says:

    Unpopular opinion: I like how everyone looks here ( Margo looks great!), except Rita Ora.

  21. Leah says:

    That dress reminds me of The Jetson’s. It really doesn’t suit anyone with hips.

    I thought he was married with kids? Guess I haven’t kept up with the goss.

    • Captainette says:

      He left his wife/kids for his longtime personal assistant then he dumped her & fired her. He’s brilliantly creative but also a selfish fckboi 🤷🏻‍♀️

  22. superbass says:

    I like that Cena dressed up! What a cute idea.

  23. Delphine says:

    Margot Robbie’s outfit is truly hideous. I think if she took off the sheer white shirt underneath the top part would look a lot better. The pants are irredeemable.

  24. ..... says:

    Taika is giving us mid-life crisis buffet and I am here for it. His films are ok, but he’s a f*ckboy and idc to root for him any more tbh.
