Who wore it better?

Kim Kardashian and Rita Ora were spotted in the same place, practically wearing the same dress on Thursday night. Both gorgeous ladies were seen at Annabel’s Private Members Club in London sporting fleshy pink, skin tight, latex dresses.

Kim paired her dress with nude heels and a tan, waist-length fur coat.

For their part, Grazia apologized, essentially blaming the photographer.
