Rihanna In Givenchy – ‘Battleship’ Japan Photocall

The promo tour for ‘Battleship’ continues, making its next stop in Japan earlier today.

Rihanna joined her co-stars on the USS George Washington at U.S. Fleet Activities Yokosuka for the photocall to promote the movie which opens in Japan on April 13.

The singer/actress wore a Givenchy Fall 2012 look which hails the return of her natural hair colour.

She wore a black turtleneck sweater with a light beaded detail, and black harem pants.

Black pumps and Givenchy long black leather opera gloves completed her look.

I prefer the runway styling as I’m missing the belt.

    Ok, I’ll say it – that girl tries WAY too hard.
    It’s not even exciting any more.:(

      I agree

    Not too keen on the outfit but her hair looks infinity times better than the hideous blonde wig. She looks so much better!

    Black widow?

  4. Zineb April 2, 2012 at 17:56 #

    WOW ! Rihanna all covered ?! Gotta be a joke !

  5. dan April 2, 2012 at 17:56 #

    she looks soo much better with that dark hair.

    • tiffany nicole April 4, 2012 at 02:08 #

      she is really working me out right now. I love her. We never know what to expect, but she usually pulls it off as she does here. In SPADES!

    The outfit is bad.
    The new hairstyle is even worse.
    But the hair colour is such an improvement that I am completely willing to overlook those two things and give her a pass.

    She only gets one, though!

    Thank goodness she went back to the black hair!

    • Dani April 3, 2012 at 00:10 #

      Agree oh so very strongly!

  8. Christine April 2, 2012 at 18:01 #

    Aa for the styling, the harem pants is a no with this sweater. Fitted pants would look much better but I love her hair like this!

  9. EmmaWoodhouse April 2, 2012 at 18:02 #

    This look is a hot mess–too baggy, too much black, too MUCH (the gloves)..but I am so glad that she’s lost the blond hair. Now if only she could have gone without shaving part of her head… SIGH

    Finally a hair colour I can root for! Hopefully she makes better choices to accompany her much improved hair.

  11. LizLemoooon April 2, 2012 at 18:04 #

    Not a fan of the gloves but I like the outfit otherwise. I don’t think it’s appropriate for the event tho.
    On the plus side, she looks absolutely gorgeous with that black hair. Much more flattering and really shows off her face.

  12. Michelle April 2, 2012 at 18:11 #

    Personally, I love this! I like how she paired two kind of billowy pieces together. I think it works.

    Also apparently her natural hair color like a dark blond color. So even this isn’t her natural color but it definitely suits her! To be fair though I think she can pull off any hair color.

    • hauteness April 3, 2012 at 00:10 #

      I love this too!

      • BONCHEIDT April 3, 2012 at 11:29 #

        me too.

    • Ahot April 3, 2012 at 13:05 #

      me 4!

  13. shaun April 2, 2012 at 18:37 #

    i think it is interesting that she chose this look for the japanese part of the tour. i think she is playing with the fashion culture in japan that really is much more different and interesting then say london or nyc

  14. Nat April 2, 2012 at 18:38 #

    LOL, someone must tell this girl that there is a middle way in between of going out without your pants (and on the London tube, nevertheless! I’m still hoping she didn’t take a seat!) and getting all covered up in black like this…She looks ready to join the Night’s Watch.
    I’m glad she’s not blonde any more, but this hair colour doesn’t feel natural either. It’s just too black. Let’s hope it’s going to light up a bit and become more brunette.

    • priyanka April 2, 2012 at 19:37 #

      i agree! her style seems to go from one extreme (very blonde, very few clothes) to another (very dark hair, completely covered up). and +1 for the game of thrones reference!

    • manja April 3, 2012 at 11:48 #

      +1exactly what I thought whenI saw her,no middle grounde,too little or too much.hair is too black

  15. LOLA April 2, 2012 at 18:40 #

    Too much and not enough style….FAIL

  16. Ramsay April 2, 2012 at 18:40 #

    Would see that more as an evening look – all that blackness seens to me more approriate for after dark – plus it is too “wintery”

  17. Carolina April 2, 2012 at 18:44 #

    I love this whole look. She’s working it well, and even before I read the description, I was reminded of Japanese style.

  18. Raquel April 2, 2012 at 18:45 #

    Not a fan. Too dark, too heavy, too “trying too hard”. She is not going to a gothic convention at a cemetery, but to a Navy ship for a photocall. Dress for the occasion, anyone?

    • Sabrina April 2, 2012 at 19:25 #

      I agree 100%. Its so inappropriate for the event.

  19. Ade April 2, 2012 at 19:05 #

    If she ditched the gloves I’d like it a bit more

  20. Jill April 2, 2012 at 19:21 #

    but the hair!! YAY! I cannot believe my eyes! I can forgive her any outfit with that hair, honest. p.s. somehow, she reminds me of Megan Fox in this picture…

  21. Olive April 2, 2012 at 19:29 #

    I love it

  22. annelise April 2, 2012 at 20:08 #

    This reminds me of Witches by Roald Dahl…I don’t think anything else needs to be said after that…

  23. Riley April 2, 2012 at 21:18 #

    I hate it. I thought she was Ciara and that’s not a good thing. This is a miss. I hate it when Rihanna forces the edgy just as much as I hate it when she forces the sexy. This isn’t a flattering look- especially the top, which made me think she was pregnant for 4 seconds.

  24. ondam April 2, 2012 at 22:08 #

    Well,i do not remember Rihanna looking so bad in ages..!Really, my eyes heart; and i doubt is the photographer’s fault.
    We do not want Rihanna to be covered up in that aging and honestly ugly way.
    I thought i would never say that, but i think she can do so much better!

  25. Rebecca Z April 2, 2012 at 23:31 #

    It’s not my favorite outfit, and I am not wild about the shaved area on her head, but still somehow she just carries it off for me. The outfit makes much more sense from the side, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a poor choice.

  26. Joy April 3, 2012 at 05:23 #

    This is boring for Rhianna, except for her more natural hair coloring which is refreshing. Too bad her costar Taylor Kitsch isn’t in the picures. He definitely wouldn’t have been boring.

  27. roxana April 3, 2012 at 06:56 #

    she looks like cassie in this photo.

    • MEME April 3, 2012 at 07:57 #


  28. MEME April 3, 2012 at 07:58 #

    She tries too hard….

  29. effieee April 3, 2012 at 11:20 #

    The shoes are far too simple / dull for the look. I wish she’d opted for edgier shoes.

    • Ahot April 3, 2012 at 13:09 #

      i fear that with edgier shoes, she would end up looking very Gagaesque (read ridiculous), & no one wants to like like that for sure. :-)

  30. Felicia April 3, 2012 at 17:57 #

    The runway look is way better. She looks bad. Simple

  31. Chanel April 3, 2012 at 19:43 #

    Am I the only one who thinks she looks good? Her hair is really cool and I think the details of the outfit brings it out! Rihanna is stylish and always will be :)

  32. anna April 5, 2012 at 01:39 #

    she looks outstanding..she didn”t need the belt
