Good Look – Rihanna

In Fashion, Good Look on November 2, 2009 at 10:50 pm

In less than five years, Rihanna has gone from a fresh-faced, teeny-bopper to a bold, hyper-sexed, 20+ million album selling vixen.

Now, I’m loving the new R&B Chick-meets-Dominatrix ‘get-up’, but I also feel that somewhere along the way, something got lost. It’s not easy going from woman-child to full blown maven via the whole world, and I do wish the transition would have been a bit smoother. Maybe then her look wouldn’t have been so angst-driven. Even if shes been hardened by the hard knocks (literally, thanks to that ex-dud Chris Brown) of life, I do miss when Rihanna still had that glow in her eyes. And I believe she could have done the rocker black girl with a bit more pizzazz.

I’m assuming that this look (pictured below)was an MTV appearance or so, around her fourth album release Good Girl Gone Bad . I feel  this look was a bit of a Baby Phat meets H&M – which is not a bad thing, but could have used a bit more edge. I do like that she has that innocence, and with a bit of tweaking this look would have been bang on.
