Former First Lady Michelle Obama, 58, took to YouTube on July 31 to share an important message and issue a few simple challenges. It’s exactly 100 days till midterm election day, and Michelle’s plea to everyone is to get out and get registered! “Hey, everyone! It’s official—we are just 100 days out from the 2022 midterm elections,” she said in the video, while rocking a delicate gold letter necklace spelling out the word VOTE. “All that work you’ve been doing, all the outreach, the voter registration parties, the efforts to fight voter suppression, that work is more important than ever.”

Michelle went on to explain why she’s encouraging people to get registered to vote early. “Because every American deserves to have their voice heard,” she continued. “Every American deserves to have a say in the future of this country. And this fall, so much is on the ballot: our access to health care, the judges in our courts, and so, so much more.”

Michelle’s three-pronged approach, through her organization @whenweallvote, is as follows. “First, I want you to text VOTE to 56005 to check your voter registration status,” she said. “Second, I want you to ask one friend, just one friend, to check their registration status too. And third, I want to ask you to volunteer with us.” Michelle explained that you can sign up right away at WhenWeAllVote.org. She is the co-chair and founder of the important national, nonpartisan initiative created to increase participation in every election, by closing the age and race gap.

Michelle’s challenge spotlights an important aspect of elections — the enormous importance of an individual vote. “It’s people like you who’ll make all the difference this fall,” she said. “Whether that’s by casting a ballot yourself or by organizing your communities to make sure that all your neighbors can do the same. So I hope you’ll join us. We’ve only got 100 days left, and they’re gonna go fast. That’s why we’ve got to use every minute we’ve got until those polls close to make sure that everyone understands the importance of their voice, and the power of their vote.”

Michelle concluded the video with a special thanks to her viewers and a final thought. “Now, let’s get to work!” she said. The former First Lady announced her ambitious plan to register 1 million new voters and volunteers in an effort to combat voter suppression, back in January. “We’ve got to vote like the future of our democracy depends on it,” she said in an open letter published in the New York Times. “And we must give Congress no choice but to act decisively to protect the right to vote and make the ballot box more accessible for everyone.”

“Your Song” singer Rita Ora, 32, looked smoking hot on the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards on Dec. 5, and turned heads in a transparent red dress. The bombshell wore a gown by the designer Nensi Dojaka, and paired the look with a red bra and matching thong. In addition, Rita completed her look with facial prosthetics that gave her a futuristic look, along with open-toe red heels and a heart-shaped bra underwire.

The 32-year-old also made sure to turn around when she walked the red carpet to show off her bare backside, high-slit, and her many tattoos. Many of Rita’s fans took to Twitter to react on this stunning look. “In this weather as well!!! I respect the sacrifice for the fashion,” one admirer wrote, while another added, “I love bleached eyebrows.” However, there were still some members of her fanbase that were not sure how to feel about her siren-red look. “Honestly it’s camp in a bad way and a good way,” a third user penned, while another added, “i’m trying to like it i really am.”

Rita’s see-through gown comes just a few days after she appeared on Louis Theroux‘s podcast, Louis Theroux Interviews on Dec. 1. During this interview, the beauty told Louis whether or not she was “Becky” from Beyonce‘s famous Lemonade album. “I didn’t even think about it, I swear. And it wasn’t a J, it was an R. They flipped it ’round and then it looked like a J,” she said in reference to a 2016 initial necklace that was spotted in a 2016 snapchat. This necklace sparked rumors about who the woman was in the hit song “Sorry” by the 41-year-old.

“No, it had nothing [to do with it],” she said, via PEOPLE.  “No, that was my own design with an underwear company called Tezenis that I was working with,” Rita further explained. “This is what I mean, man. A pinch of salt. You’ve got to take things with a pinch of salt. And that’s what’s insane. I had to just sit through that until a good friend of mine, Katy Perry, gave me a hilarious badge that said ‘not Becky’.”

Of course, the gorgeous cherry-red dress was not the only jaw-dropping look Rita gave this week. She also took to Instagram and TikTok to share her silky blue backless dress from Dec. 4. “Thank you so much @britishvogue and forces for change for having me tonight on such an important night,” she captioned the carousel of photos. One of her celebrity pals included in the snapshots was Avatar star Zoë Saldaña, 44, who stunned in a black pantsuit.

Rita also created a TikTok video that included audio of Kylie Jenner, 25, from the latest episode of The Kardashians. “I’m still a mom, but these are the years I’m supposed to be naked,” the makeup maven’s voice chimed through Rita’s video of her blue dress. “With my t*****s out, a** out, f*** yeah.” The frequent Calvin Harris collaborator captioned the sexy clip, “Not a mum yet but I totally relate.”
