Is Rihanna Jacking M.I.A.’s Style Now?
Rihanna was accused of trying to be a mini Beyonce early in her career. Remember the long, honey blonde hair? But then RiRi got a little punky around the time Sasha Fierce was allowed to come out more and more. And while Rihanna and Bey look nothing alike now, you can’t deny that Rihanna took a few cues about stage presence, leotards, and crazy accessories from Beyonce. Now, though, it seems Rihanna is looking across the pond for some style inspiration, and she has her binoculars fixed on M.I.A. Check out this photo and another one after the jump from Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” video, and tell me those stripes and the mood of the outfits don’t look familiar. [Def Jam Recordings]
