Style Profile: Rihanna's Best Looks
One of the biggest musicians in the industry isn't only highly adored for her style of music, but she often appears at the top of the best dressed lists year round for her completely out-of-this-world celebrity style, as well. Of course, we are talking about the edgy, fearless, and trendsetting Rihanna, who has certainly made a statement on the stage and on the red carpets, and whether she is choosing styles presented to her by her stylist for prestigious award ceremonies or is picking out an ensemble from her very own killer wardrobe, there's no doubting that she knows how to turn heads. Her show-stopping, risky and fierce sense of style have solidified her status as a fashion icon - and one of the best, at that. We've picked out some of Rihanna's best looks that showcase exactly why she is the go-to girl for style inspiration that is sexy, confident and absolutely original.
One of Rihanna's best looks was undoubtedly the rose mermaid Zac Posen gown she wore to a red carpet event. While the fit of the dress accentuated her mind-blowing curves, it's the way she chose a fabric hue that complemented her natural complexion that makes this dress take the cake-cake-cake. Fashion isn't always about the clothes that you wear, but how you wear them, and she nailed this look. Another notable mention is the red Azzedine Alaïa gown that she wore that blew celebrity style right out of the award show.
While we can all appreciate Miss RiRi in a stunning gown, it is sometimes hard to relate to; the majority of us don't walk red carpets on a regular basis and don't have the need for extravagant dresses, which is exactly why we all love Rihanna in her everyday attire. Who can make a plain white tee and oversized sweater look so damned couture? This girl!
While out in New York City this past month, Rihanna showed off her ubiquitous celebrity style by considering the current trends and twisting them to fit her bold ways. The crop top, overalls and platform heels are must-haves this season, and with a little bit of style inspiration from Rihanna's best looks, those popular items are like nothing you've ever seen before. She has a knack for combining the industry’s favorites and turning them into something of her own. The pop of red lips takes this day outfit right into the evening.
Wild Ri Ri
When you think of an oversized camo suit that is fit for a sumo wrestler, the last thing that would come to mine is 'high fashion', but once again, Rihanna shows off exactly why she is a fashion icon. Very few people can make this attire look so couture and runway ready. Her talent of intertwining her wild sense of style into a fashion masterpiece is astonishing.
Center Stage RiRi
Rihanna's best looks continue off the streets and runways and well onto the stage, as well. Call them costumes, but you can certainly see how her performing outfits resemble her fierce, edgy style and sometimes even show off her flirty and feminine side.
...And that is what a fashion icon is. Someone whose style inspirations and attributes are incorporated into their wardrobe flawlessly. She can go from freak in the streets to flirty in frills all in a day, using fashion to showcase her various attitudes, and we love it.
