The Style Evolution Of: Rihanna
Is 2019 set to be Rihanna’s year? The Fenty beauty mogul has been hitting the headlines as of late with rumours of her launching her own fashion line with luxury conglomerate LVMH. Not just that, she also reportedly confirmed to be dropping not one, but two albums this year. Is there anything she can’t do? With all this RiRi hype surfacing, we take a look at her style evolution of the past decade.
Rihanna attended the 2009 Met Gala rocking androgynous chic. She paired an oversized sleeve Dolce and Gabbana tux with black leather gloves and blue eyeliner—so edgy.
The hair colour that went viral. Rihanna’s hair looks have always set trends, but this colour in particular was so popular that hairdressers at the time dubbed it ‘The RiRi.’
Remember when celebrity perfumes where a thing? For the launch of her very first perfume, Reb'l Fleur, Rihanna sported an Antonio Berardi turquoise two-piece.
When she performed at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret fashion show, she left the world stunned. Not only did she nail her performance, she strutted the catwalk as if she was one of the VS Angels herself.
One of the most iconic moments of her style evolution was at the 2013 Grammys. Rihanna stunned in a custom-made red gown by Azzedine Alaïa and matching red lips. Swoon!
RiRi has always been a risk taker with her style and for the 2014 CFDA awards, she did just that. She wore a crystal-embellished Adam Selman gown and fur stole, accessorised with matching head jewelry and gloves.
The second RiRi stepped out onto the 2015 Met Gala carpet, the meme’s began rolling in. The gown that was made by Beijing-based designer Guo Pei took 2 whole years to make, only to be compared to pizza bases and omelettes.
What do you wear to play a game of ‘Never Have I Ever’ with none other than George Clooney? In 2016, Rihanna appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show sporting a sleek chin bob and khaki green ensemble paired with a deep burgundy lip.
For the Fenty Beauty launch party in London, Rihanna wore a purple Molly Goddard tulle dress paired with matching eyeshadow and lipstick, of course.
Rihanna took street style to new heights last year when she stepped out in NYC wearing a deconstructed double-denim ensemble. The outfit was paired perfectly with a pink feather-boa-collared jacket, PVC mules and blue-tinted shades.
The paparazzi shot that kicked it all off. When RiRi stepped out in a pair of oversized sunglasses marked ‘Fenty’ earlier this Jan, social media freaked. Was this hinting at a Fenty sunglass line? She's unstoppable.
