25.11.09 In Her Closet

In Rihanna’s Closet – Diego Dolcini, Dean Quinn, Alexander McQueen & The Blonds

It’s been a busy few days for Rihanna.

We start with her appearance at Best Buy in Union Square, New York where she signed copies of her new album “Rated R” and posed for pictures with fans.

She wore a strapless black jumpsuit featuring a draped detail, but it was the heels I was more interested in.

The singer wore a pair of Diego Dolcini origami satin peep-toe pumps.

The shoes are accented with a large leather origami-style rosette in metallic shades of gold, copper and silver.

It was the perfect accessory to add a bit of pizazz to her black ensemble.

Although I couldn’t find the exact version of Rihanna’s heels Luisa via Roma and farfetch.com both have a similar version.

For Rihanna’s appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” she wore less impressive heels, but the focus this time was on her Dean Quinn white blazer accented with bugle beads.

On her recent visit to London Rihanna must checked out a lot of our up-and-coming designers because she recently wore David Koma, now she’s wearing a piece from another Central St Martins graduate Dean Quinn.

This blazer was part of his 2009 graduate show consisting of 6 black and white pieces.

The bugle beads have very much become his signature as they were used on all 6 pieces.

You can check out his collection at Dean Quinn.com.

Rihanna was all smiles when she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theatre for her appearance on the “Late Show With David Letterman”.

What stood out on this occasion were her Alexander McQueen fold-down boots from the Fall 2009 collection.

These heels are very distinctive by the black and white houndstooth material which was heavily featured in McQueen’s Fall 2009 collection.

The final stop on Rihanna’s promotional tour yesterday was her “Rated R” Album Release Party at Juliet Supperclub.

The singer may have been fatigued after a long day, as she kept her sunglasses on whilst walking the red carpet.

It was that or she was worried she would poke her eye out on her spiked gold mini dress by design duo The Blonds.

This was my least favourite look as there’s too much gold from the hair, to the dress, to the spiked heels.

    I wish she had worn the runway shes on GMA. There is isn’t enough balance on the bottom and she just looks like she forgot pants. The heavier runways shoes would have created that balance that the model has.

    i do like her first look but that spiked dress and shoe combo looks………………dangerous!

    Way too much gold at the end but I think she looks great in the other outfits.
    None of them seem to be OTT – except the goldie gold outfit.

    Surprisingly I liked these outfits. Fun, but not contrived.

    this is the firt time in a long time that i have even slightly enjoyed anything rihanna has worn. her first two looks are really great, those shoes are brilliant. her third look is okay but that pantyhose is annoying. her last look is so monochrome. the dress, the shoes and the hair are pretty much the same color as her skin.

    P.S: I think you forgot to tag her name on this post….

    I really like the Dean Quinn blazer – very intriguing designer to follow, and Rihianna looks great in this. The rest is a pass for me.

    I love all the looks shown here, but especially the white beaded jacket. It looks so good, really accents her skin and compliments her more than any of the other looks. Definitely a fav for me. Love it.
