Rihanna In Natalie Martin – Out In Sardinia

Rihanna In Natalie Martin - Out In Sardinia
Rihanna recently shopped and strolled the streets of Sardinia, Italy with a couple of friends, browsing stores the likes of Prada, Versace and Louis Vuitton.

For her day of retail therapy, she was lovely in a Natalie Martin maxi dress with an allover cerise-hued floral print that matched her matte lip lacquer.

In keeping with the breezy style, she wore her hair in loose, natural waves, carried a white Prada bag, and kept herself cool with a teal-coloured folding fan, which served as a bold contrasting accessory.

In addition to the pretty look, I actually love those metallic sunglasses that she tried on; edgy and eye-catching—much like the singer herself. However, it’s been nice to see her softer, more demure side of late.

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.

Rihanna In Alexander Wang – Le Petit Four

Rihanna In Alexander Wang - Le Petit Four

Rihanna was spotted out with her BFF Melissa Forde having lunch at Le Petit Four in West Hollywood, California.

Looking rather smart in a pinstripe two-piece, the singer donned a short-sleeved boxy top and track pants by one of her favourite designers, Alexander Wang.

Keeping the look smart with Wang’s ‘Ingrid’ cream oxford shoes, she accessorized with a Delvaux ‘Brillant’ MM plain black leather bag scrolled with ‘Ceci n’est pas un Delvaux’ and a selection of jewels.

This is an interesting look, contrasting the smart but kind of ruggedness of the outfit with a ladylike bag.

The outfit might look like scrubs to some and the bag might feel out of place for others, but I love this look.

Rihanna In Helmut Lang – Butter Restaurant

Rihanna In Helmut Lang - Butter Restaurant

Rihanna was spotted leaving Butter Restaurant in New York City on Monday (August 18) with BFF Melissa Forde.

Shelving the lingerie-inspired dresses (for now), the pop diva wore a hot-pink high-slit jersey dress from Helmut Lang.

Very demure by her standards, the look was styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Impera’ laser-cut white pumps with a lace ankle-tie detail, plus a black and white Balmain striped clutch, with a selection of jewels by her go-to jeweller, Lynn Ban.

I love the matching hot-pink lip and the fun red floral headband, which she didn’t arrive wearing. It’s been a long time since I said these words regarding a Rihanna look, but I love this from head to toe.

It has an edge without trying too hard, with pieces which I covet.

Rihanna In Adam Selman – Bowery Hotel

Rihanna In Adam Selman - Bowery Hotel

Rihanna was spotted headed to the Bowery Hotel in New York City to attend a birthday party yesterday evening (August 14).

Continuing her love affair with all things alluding to lingerie, the singer wore another save-it-for-the-boudoir dress, this time from her stylist Adam Selman’s Spring 2014 collection.

The black satin frock with white lace trim, side slit, and lacing detail to encourage the undone vibe, was styled with simple black pumps, a Tom Ford shoulder bag and a selection of the usual heavy-metal jewelry she favours.

Is Rihanna stuck in a style rut?
