Fashion Icon: Rihanna

In Fashion, Fashion Heat, star, Trend, Trend Report, why don't you on November 24, 2010 at 4:37 pm

There’s that girl, again. Rihanna. I was in awe with her dominatrix phase, but these days she seems in synch with where I am stylistically right now. Wanting to go back to her roots. As you can see, Rihanna’s playing with patterns and boisterous colours while adding a touch of street in the process. Marc Jacobs took it there for Spring – as did a lot of designers – Mossino included. But if you decided to go the tribal pattern route it can’t be strategic. It’s got to be grimy, or else what’s the point?

I need somewhere to sport some super short-shorts and combat boots. Red hair not included. I already did the big jewellery, but I don’t mind bringing it back – for the right purpose.

So, I’m pulling together a look that reminds me of this ferocious outfit Rihanna wore during her MTV “The Seven” visit. I like it.
