Here’s a fun assignment I was given this week for Celebritytoob.com (where I’m a Fashion/Entertainment/Celebrity News Editor).
Rihanna is one of the world’s biggest megastars in addition to being one of the most beautiful people alive. Fans are obsessed with following her day-to-day life on Instagram, listening to her amazing tunes, and seeing what this gorgeous superstar looks like on any given day. Rihanna always appears flawless, which is especially phenomenal considering the singer has tried more different looks than almost anyone. Her hair is ever-changing and her style is beyond fierce. It screams confidence and “I-don’t-care-what-anyone-thinks,-I-love-this-look,” which leaves everyone else loving the look too.
Ri-Ri’s style is fresh and daring and she isn’t afraid to try out styles or pieces that other people may not dare or care to (i.e. a fishnet face mask!). She dyes her hair and alters its texture as often as most people change underwear. The singer carries herself with such confidence, sensuality, and sex appeal that she can’t help but wear clothes immaculately. She also accessorizes to perfection, always picking the perfect jewelry and shoes. The Council of Fashion Designers of America awarded her with the Fashion Icon Award at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards ceremony this year, which couldn’t have been more deserved.
Rihanna has an incredible sense of style and truly loves fashion and respects it deeply as a form of art and expression. Here are five of the songstress’ best looks ever. And give me extra credit, it is not easy picking just five!
Chanel to the Chanel Fashion Show in Paris – March 2014
Rihanna looks absolutely chic, super cute, and sporty at the Chanel fashion show at this year’s Paris Fall Fashion Week. The singer scooted around in a shopping cart during the supermarket themed “Chanel Shopping Center” event wearing this incredible get up and sporting her stunning super straight, jet black bob with blunt bangs. How amazing are the matching sneakers and the fanny pack featuring a figurine of a silver gun (we know she loves guns – she has a gun tattoo on her side)? Those big bauble bracelets are also fantastic.
Alexandre Vauthier to the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala – January 2014
This is without a doubt the sexiest black tie bathrobe anyone’s every seen. RiRi showed up to the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala in a bright yellow silk wrap dress from Alexandre Vauthier’s spring 2014 collection. The low neckline showcased her beautiful necklace and impressive underboob tattoos and the leg slit showed off her phenomenal gold-lace up Louboutins. LOVE this look.
River Island to River Island Launch – March 2013
Here Rihanna is attending the launch party in London of her very own River Island collection, which she had debuted at London Fashion Week two weeks earlier. Despite mixed reviews for her Spring/Summer 2013 collection, the budding fashion designer beamed with pride as she interacted with fans and showed off her designs. Ri strutted inside the store wearing this sexy black knitted, turtleneck, long-sleeved maxi dress from her brand. The dress features a deep thigh-high split and a cool geometric-shaped open back. She added some color with red Manolo Blahnik ankle-strap sandals. Rihanna completed the look pretty side-swept voluminous brunette curls combined with one of her trademark looks- the side head shave.
Azzedine Alaia to the Grammys – February 2013
Ri looked feminine and beautiful attending the Grammys in 2013. She wore a red hot Azzedine Alaia dress, Neil Lane jewelry, and Manolo Blahnik shoes. Her hair looks gorgeous too, with long spirals and pretty ombre coloring. “I walked in and it was pretty much on the mirror,” Rihanna told E! about choosing the striking gown. ‘This one was just stunning. I loved the color.’ As do we all!
Armani to the Grammy’s – February 2012
The singer told E! she was channeling the 1983 gangster flick Scarface (the Michelle Pfeiffer character) when she chose to step out at the 2012 Grammy Awards in this super sexy black Armani gown. She also sported this then-new curly blonde ‘do, but all eyes were on her plummeting neckline and sexy back. Her subtle chest plate jewelry matched with bold bracelet are perfect finishing touches.
Wow. Just Wow. We love you Rihanna!
