Taika Waititi & Rita Ora were too cool for school at the Milan Fendi show

When Taika Waititi and Rita Ora first got together last April/May, I thought it was mostly about convenience more than anything else. Convenience in the time of Covid, especially since they were both in Australia during strict lockdowns and neither of them could fly anywhere freely and come back. They were both working and I thought “well, this won’t last but have fun.” No, they’re a real couple now. They go to premieres together and show up on each other’s social media and they even went to the Met Gala together.

As you can see, they’re going to fashion shows together now too. These are photos from the Fendi show in Milan. They flew all the way to ITALY to pose together! I mean, I guess. I still find them to be an “odd couple” but I’ve also sort of gotten used to them at this point. Maybe we need to stop thinking of Taika as this hipster auteur who would never get with a B-list pop star who loves attention. He is that guy. Also: I think he’s still technically married? Did he and Chelsea Winstanley ever officially divorce? They’ve been separated since 2018 and they have two young daughters. Hm.

I hate how much I love Rita’s outfit. I want that coat.

    Their look is either permanently high, permanently drunk or permanently hungover. Still.

    But in really expensive clothing.

      Lol, I think that’s because they are. He’s deep in an “artiste”‘s midlife crisis, but I can’t get over how hot he looks still, it’s not really fair. And yeah, I hope he gets it together sooner than later, for his children’s sake.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      That was my thought too; I really love some of this guy’s work, but he looks drunk ALL the time now, and I’m worried he’s badly off the rails.

    I believe he and Chelsea are divorced. The gossip was she wanted to cut him loose after he embarassed her with the mistress and started engaging in some hard partying. Kids are in NZ and he barely sees them (albeit a recent trip which the paps conveniently caught). Chelsea deserves much better.

    He and Rita deserve one another. I wonder how long Disney will be able to cover up his messy personal life.

    “Too cool for school” 😂 that is the best description for these two.

    I’m with you Kaiser- hate how much I like that coat!

  4. BlueSky says:

    The secondhand embarrassment I have for both of them.

  5. Gobo says:

    I wonder of he is helping her dress herself better? This relationship helped open my eyes in relation to him. And not in a positive light.

  6. Delphine says:

    This is the best I’ve ever seen them look. I really like both of their suits.

  7. LP says:

    Proving it’s totally possible to be thirsty, midlife crisis-y, and a f*ckboi…while also being very hot and a very talented filmmaker. Unfair!

    In his defense, it’s still really hard to get home to NZ. You have to go in a lottery to get a spot in a government managed isolation hotel. It’s made it super hard for people to come and go for any reason, but we’ve enjoyed almost two whole years Covid free, so I’m a big fan. It’s being eased up gradually, now Omicron is in our community. I understand from IG/interviews, etc, that Taika has come through MIQ twice, once solo with his two kids (14 days, solo in a hotel room, parenting two littles – respect!). I’d wait till we’re back to no border controls to judge whether he comes and goes frequently to see his kids

    It’s cute how they line up all their poses. How accidentally connected are these two goofy kids.
