Rihanna may be one of fashion’s wild childs, but lately it seems she can’t get enough of Stella McCartney’s sophisticated designs which mostly come from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection.
The recent run started back in March for the then-blonde singer. She was spotted wearing a Pre-Fall 2012 ensemble consisting of a grey lace blouse with matching pants whilst promoting her new movie, ‘Battleship’ in London.
Continuing her ‘Battleship’ press duties, Rihanna chose a Stella McCartney Evening 2012 look for her appearance at the BBC Radio 1 studios. Choosing to go bare under a multi-coloured marble-print silk jacket dress with black satin lapels, RiRi found a way to put her signature edge on the look.
It was a complete 180, however, at the ‘Battleship’ Sydney premiere, held in early April, as a newly raven-haired Rihanna donned a Pre-Fall 2012 jumpsuit. Pairing the sleek one-piece with Manolo Blanhik sandals (for a third time), Rihanna gave us pure Stella McCartney minimalism at its finest, resulting in one of her best overall looks from the film’s promo tour to date.
Honoured as one of Time Magazine’s ‘100 Most Influential People’ of 2012, Rihanna also had the privilege of singing at the Time 100 Gala, held in New York City last week where she wore Stella again for her big performance.
Her Pre-Fall 2012 jacquard ensemble, featuring a gold strapless top accented with a red-and-black top paired with silver pants, was not RiRi’s best look, but we admire her for not playing it safe.
While I’m all for this new obsession, it seems to work best when Rihanna sticks to the sleek, tailored looks that Stella does so well.
