In Rihanna’s Closet – Alexander Wang & Matthew Williamson

This is the first time in a long time I have LOVED what Rihanna is wearing head-to-toe.

She wowed onlookers in a sexy black and nude strapless Alexander Wang corset dress, with Jil Sander pumps.

Some might say she was a little overdressed for a mere afternoon visit to her pal, Kanye West, but I say she looks fabulous. Soft, feminine and beautiful.

Whilst having some much needed retail therapy, hitting several boutiques including Intermix in New York, Rihanna wore a Matthew Williamson gathered leather coat, as a belted dress.

The look was paired with black knee high boots, and reptile accessories.

This is also another great look.  Not too over the top – with the exclusion of her hair – but still showing a lots of personality.

She’s starting to be fabulous again. I hope it lasts.

    i almost totally agree with you here. rihanna looks great from forehead to toe lol. seriously, how much money do you think she pays her hair stylist to commit that crime on top of her head? such a shame! for once, her looks are not overdone and not trying too hard. i particularly love that first ensemble. that dress is SICK.

    XOXO
    JGH

    The Alexander Wang dress is gorgeous, the colour looks great on her, and I love the detail on the skirt. I wish she’d sort her hair out though – I miss her chin length bob, it was so much more versatile!

    Hey fashion critic? Why did you delete the two posts that didn’t shower your opinions with praise? x

      Sorry?? I’m confused. What are you referring to?

      I know not everyone agrees with my opinions. But that doesn’t mean I will delete them.

    As crazy as her hair is, I can’t help but love it! She looks great in the Alexander Wang dress.

    i am absolutely loving her alexander wang look. while you guys were rejoicing over her horrible marc jacobs look and gucci leather reptilian mess, i was waiting for rihanna to pull out a look that truly showcases her beauty and a sense of unpretentious fashion savvy. this look makes me so happy.

    i’m not liking that unnecessary necklace in her second look. and the hair is just strange. can she just grow it out already?

      LOL @ reptilian Gucci mess

    hey FC,
    Rihanna does look good, but that hair….my Lord. Just to let you know I was on the ybf.com and saw what she wore to Kanye’s house, the outfit you posted is the one that she wore to go out in. Hope the link works…(http://i368.photobucket.com/albums/oo126/theybf/May%2009/7fd9c4bc.jpg)

      Thanks for that. I didn’t realise she changed at this house.

      People will start speculating now.
