Rihanna In Alexander Wang, Haider Ackermann & Balenciaga – Out in New York City

Rihanna In Alexander Wang & Haider Ackermann  - Out in New York City

Rihanna continues to step up her fashion game.

On Wednesday (August 20) she was spotted heading into an office building in New York wearing another look with a mannish vibe.

Going braless, the singer donned a grey Alexander Wang tank top with pinstriped Haider Ackermann taupe and eggplant-striped wide-leg slacks creating a downtown-uptown mash up.

Again, she kept the look chic thanks to some ladylike accessories, including a coveted grey Balenciaga crocodile bag from the Fall 2014 collection, Italia Independent brown-velvet-frame sunnies and two-tone Chanel pumps.

With her Rapunzel-like hair blowing in the warm breeze, she completed her look with a dark-chocolate lip colour.

I’m so excited to see her back on track. However, I hope she stopped off at Victoria’s Secret on the way home.


You can buy Rihanna’s Italia Independent Sunglasses from Zappos.

    Don’t like the trousers, too wide for me. Liked her previous look much better. From this one, I only like the bag.

      agreed on all points.

    Seriously I know riri is taking the CDFA best dressed very very seriously.
    She wants a different look everyday like gaga but it’s harder to get it right when you want effortless and sexy.

    I like the idea of the look and it does not look too good nor bad, the pants is slightly too wide and the top is too loose.
    The balenciaga bag is just gorgeous, I hope she carries this bag often and not just a one time thing because she is trying too hard

    Riri looks amazing!

    The pants are too wide, and I don’t like the ladylike pumps with them. But I really like the top, and actually don’t mind it without a bra. Bag lovely, makeup on point. Hair okay.

    I actually quite love this look. I think she looks great. I dont find the pants too wide, and I’m enjoying this entire look!

    I really like this look, the bag, the top, the pants, shoes not so much and the hair is questionable. But all in all she does look good!

    “Going braless…” Pretty sure Rihanna doesn’t own a bra or even know they exist.

    • Koma August 22, 2014 at 21:50 #

      I read somewhere where she said that if she wears a top then she doesn’t wear a bra, but if she has a bra on then she won’t wear anything over it

    I think she’s getting boring. Trying too hard to be controversial 9 out of 10 ten times by revealing a nipple here, a nipple there etc. It’s just old.

    • May August 21, 2014 at 20:36 #

      The weave is awful. I agree with the poster, she is trying way to hard.

    • May August 21, 2014 at 20:38 #

      I agree with what you said, she is trying way too hard. When women need to show their nipples, they just come across as sad.

    I feel like constant new cloths and designer labels actually dilutes my interest in a celeb’s style. It starts to seem less like personal style and more like a (for me) slightly gross display of fast fashion and over-consumption. Self-restraint via learning to re-style what’s already in one’s wardrobe is always something I like seeing.

    I usually hate everything she wears, except for that one great outfit every couple of months. I think that this is this one outfit. I love it

    So quiet here today (or is it just my browser playing tricks on me?). I hope everything’s okay.

      Kane, I was thinking the same thing. Everything all right, FC?

    • moonbeam August 23, 2014 at 00:41 #

      I’m thinking FC is just taking a short break before the MTV VMAs and the Emmys in the next 3 days! There will be a ton of fashion to cover :)

        Break? Me? never 😀

        The site was in maintenance mode so I couldn’t update.

        Making up for it now

        • Dhppy August 23, 2014 at 23:04 #

          Oh, good. I was wondering what had happened.

    • Phoenix August 23, 2014 at 07:23 #

      hmmmmm. I so depend on this beautiful woman (Catherine Kallon) now that I’m actually worried. She like lights up my mornings. and my evenings.
      To not see her wonderful opinions in a day kind of disturbs me.
      haha not be stalkerish

    • kane August 23, 2014 at 10:05 #

      Ah, maintenance, should have checked Facebook first.
