Rihanna In Rodarte – Out In New York City

Rihanna In Rodarte - Out In New York City
Rihanna was spotted out in New York City on Sunday (May 24).

Never one to not leave an impression, the songstress channeled an urban, hip-hop mood in a Rodarte Spring 2015 olive-green, canvas jacket paired with ripped boyfriend jeans and, what else, but Puma briefs and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

Elevated grunge was the name of this game, and the artfully chaotic design of the oversized jacket carried the street-style look with its patchwork pockets, hand-embroidered, iridescent burnt edged paillettes, and leather strap details.

Those flame-red locks and oxblood lip were the exclamation point on this rebellious look that’s right in line with Ri Ri’s colourful, statement-making style.

Rihanna’s Dior Secret Garden Campaign

Inter_SG4_DP1_440x285_Without Txt

Christian Dior has released a first look at Rihanna’s Dior Secret Garden campaign, photographed by Steven Klein at the Palace of Versailles in France.

While this is the fourth instalment of the Secret Garden series, it is the first time a black woman has been the face of the house in its 69-year history.

Rihanna has always been a huge fan of Raf Simons often perched front row at Dior’s shows, plus she’s been spotted wearing his menswear collection on several occasions, so perhaps this shouldn’t have been a surprise.

While her first official outing as an ambassador in Dior wasn’t a huge success, this campaign appears to have successfully shaken up the image of the brand bringing a touch of rebellious spirit.

Rihanna In Guo Pei Couture – 2015 Met Gala

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

Rihanna shut down the red carpet at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

We can always count on the songstress to wake us from any sartorial-fueled slumber with her no-holds-barred style. And she delivered in true form here, donning an elaborate couture number by Chinese designer Guo Pei.

Intricately embroidered and edged in fur, the cape-style coat extended nearly the entire length of the first set of those iconic stairs for maximum impact. At times, the top half of her hot-pink bodysuit peered over the edge of the fur for a hint of edgy allure.

But the real story here was the majestic regality of the coat, which was only magnified with her metallic, floral-shaped headpiece and gold choker necklace. She completed the look with Christian Louboutin ‘Toerless Muse’ pumps.

Love it or hate it, it’s audacious looks such as this that truly embody the essence of Met Gala fashion.

2015 Coachella Music Festival Style Roundup

Coachella 1

When it comes to the Coachella Music Festival, boho style reigns supreme—right down to the ubiquitous flower crowns. This past weekend brought out a full range of Coachella cool-kids who marched to the beat of their own hippie drum in Indio, California.

Kendall Jenner: Infusing her Day 1 Coachella style with decidedly western appeal, the model paired her Derek Lam 10 Crosby Spring 2015 suede vest with a striped bikini top, ripped jorts, and Saint Laurent snakeskin booties. A tribal collar necklace and stacks of bangles took the look to the next level with a typical fringe hobo bag rounding it out.

Alessandra Ambrosio: Channeling her inner cowgirl during the fest and at the Forever 21 BBQ, the Brazilian supermodel naturally wore a skin-is-in look anchored by her Forever 21 suede fringe halter top and teeny cutoff denim shorts. I loved the addition of her turquoise jewelry, tall cowboy boots, and wide-brimmed cowboy hat for plenty of kitschy fun.

Gigi Hadid: Rocking another look with plenty of fringe benefits, Gigi was spotted on Day 2, where she added chains and charm to her ensemble consisting of an ASOS fringe suede collar, black cutoffs, a Guess body chain, and H&M ankle boots. With her long blonde windswept waves, she managed to put an adorable spin on Coachella dressing.

Rihanna In Raf Simons – Opening Ceremony ‘M$$ X WT’

Rihanna In Raf Simons - Opening Ceremony 'M$$ X WT'

On Monday (March 30) Rihanna attended the Opening Ceremony’s New York store to support her best friend Melissa Forde, who launched a mini collection of bucket hats designed in collaboration with rapper Wale‘s clothing line Wrkng Title.

The rapper collaborated with Forde on the line after they had a conversation about the gap in the market for the classic accessory, which was a foundation of hip hop fashion back in the day.

No stranger to Raf Simon‘s menswear, Rihanna wore a doodle-covered coat from his Fall 2015 collection, styled with a barely there double-denim outfit plus the Dior Spring 2015 boots she wore to the Tidal launch earlier in the day.

While the coat feels like it contains the scribbles of a mad scientist, she did nail the throwback hip hop look to a tee.
