Who says you can't blend fashion and football?

Rita Ora did when she took in some Monday night football at the Ainsworth in New York City.

Wearing dark red lipstick and platforms, the fashionphile – who wore custom Emilio Pucci to the MTV VMAs last month – made watching the pigskin pretty.

The Jay-Z's protégée is rumored to be dating Rob Kardashian. Recently, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star shared a photo of the duo sporting matching Rolex watches.

"HIS & HERS GOLD ROLLIES B–ES!!!!!!! who else does this??? @RITAORA" he recently Tweeted.

Knicks player J.R. Smith was also in the house that evening, cozying up to a female friend in a booth.

"J.R. was mellow, he was watching both the football game and the Yankees game at the same time," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

Don Meredith, a star quarterback on the football field and a legendary broadcaster off it, died on Sunday in Santa Fe, N.M., after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He was at 72.

Meredith played nine seasons for the Dallas Cowboys in the 1960s, and then upstaged himself with a distinguished broadcasting career on ABC's Monday Night Football, where he served two stints – from 1970-73 and 1977-84.

He was one of the first players to make the transition to the broadcast booth, and quickly won over viewers with a colorful, folksy, Southern style that included singing the Willie Nelson line "Turn out the lights, the party's over" when a team's lead seemed insurmountable.
