A few weeks ago, I remarked to Julie that I thought that Rihanna’s latest style incarnation was as someone who had “transcended fashion” and was “post-style” (yeah, I don’t know what that really means either) and that’s why she was dressing so dumpy. But yesterday, Rihanna went shopping in a look that, while a bit over-the-top and lotta-look-ish, I think is so cute. I am really digging her pineapple romper, curly hair, and visor combo. It’s very Salt-N-Pepa so naturally I approve. But what do you think? (Click into the gallery to see the full outfit.)
When we first heard Rihanna was going to have her own reality TV show, we were praying it would be kind of like the Britney Spears/K-Fed disaster “Chaotic.” But it turns out, she’s made a fashion show, titled “Styled to Rock,” and it’s more “Project Runway” than personal foray into Rihanna’s world. She’s also primarily the executive producer, and while she’ll appear on some of the episodes, the show’s judging duties will be mostly held by Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud, Rihanna’s stylist Lysa Cooper and designer Henry Holland. It’s also airing on British channel Sky Living, so it’ll probably be difficult to catch many of the episodes, unless they’re leaked online. You can see the trailer for the show — and Rihanna (pegged here as a style icon) in an unfortunate baseball cap/blonde hair combo. [Styleite]
There are many, many different types of cleavage, but the one that seems to cause the most controversy is the underboob. No wonder Rihanna (seen above, performing this weekend) is on board — she’s such a rebel, that girl! Is a glimpse of a lady boob’s bottom half sexy or silly? Sultry or stupid? Does it make you wonder, I wonder what the rest is like? or Hey, what happened to the rest of that chick’s shirt? Undecided? Click through these 15 great moments in celebrity underboobage and then tell us how you feel.
Rihanna opens up in the August 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
On love: “I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life!” she laughs. “I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”
On how she’s yet to open up again in relationships, after being so badly hurt in the past: “When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”
All praise to whomever spent the endless hours it took to produce this incredible new episode of “Got 2 B Real,” the diva variety show. You know it took hours and hours and hours to voice and edit this bitch. Welcome to the Diva Variety Show, featuring Aretha “Hateretha” Franklin, Chaka Khan, Patti LaBelle, Rihanna, Beyonce, Dionne Warwick, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and Fantasia. As Chaka Khan says, “Shut your shade throwers, open up the blinds.” [YouTube]
Oh God, Rihanna, what now? Amelia seems to think that she’s officially at that point in her career where she’s working the “bitch don’t give a shit angle” — just to see how far she can take it. Like she is suddenty, somehow, “post-style.” Well lady, this is plenty far enough. Your Zooba cut-offs and tiny football tee should only (if ever) be worn in the comfort of your personal home gym (which I’m confident you possess). Otherwise, this entire look needs to be nixed, and fast.
