Sunglasses have a primary use, but more importantly for Rihanna she works them as a cool accessory suggesting power, prestige and mystique.
By covering those green eyes, she makes it easier to pull off a truly cool demeanour.
Here’s a look at a range of shades she’s been throwing at us lately.
Starting with Zanzan ‘Erzulie’ cat-eye sunglasses; the contrasting black-and-white marble-print and tortoiseshell-print frame add some spice to her heavily blinged-out look.
Next up, her Lanvin crystallized snake-trimmed square-cut sunglasses put the B in Bad Girl.
Quirky Opening Ceremony seafoam cat-eye gingham sunglasses with an exaggerated pointed temple were the perfect day-on-the-beach accessory in Poland; and finally, you can’t go wrong with a classic pair of black Rayban Wayfarers.
