Rihanna For Elle UK April 2013

Rihanna Elle April 2013

Rihanna covers the April 2013 cover of Elle UK wearing a mixture of high-end designer pieces and her River Island Spring 2013 collection.

Mariano Vivanco captures the fashion-and-music rebel on two covers wearing black River Island skirts: one paired with a Louis Vuitton chequered top; the other with a Louis Vuitton striped bra with a Prada stole.

The rest of her editorial sees her wearing Maison Martin Margiela, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy.

In her interview Rihanna comes clean about her tempestuous relationship with singer Chris Brown, sharing her private thoughts on why she went back to her ex-partner, her mother’s disapproval and her hopes for her future – including plans to start a family.

The hit-making singer, best known for her rebellious attitude and fierce style, also talks about her unique brand of feminism, her attempts to be authentic and why she feels compelled to share so much of her life through social media.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On Chris Brown being the person she loves: “Stay [new single] is a story about having love that close and wanting it to last forever. You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he [Chris Brown] is the one I have that kind of relationship with.”

On wanting a great friendship with Chris Brown above all else: “…right now that’s just what we want, a great friendship that’s unbreakable. Now that we’re adults we can do this right. We got a fresh start and I’m thankful for that.” Read More…

Rihanna In DKNY for Opening Ceremony – LAX

Rihanna In DKNY for Opening Ceremony - LAX

Rihanna was spotted on Sunday walking through LAX en route to London for her River Island collection launch party which takes place today.

She rocked a super comfy DKNY for Opening Ceremony jumpsuit.

The Spring 2013 piece which features a drawstring hood, zip front and side pockets, has been re-issued from DKNYs Spring 1991 collection.

What I love about this look it that it takes me back to my Mary J Blige ‘Real Love’ and Aaliyah ‘Back and Forth’ days.

It’s so very retro.

Riri completed her look with her favourite black Alexander Wang ‘Cameron’ booties and a black Joyrich PU faux-python studded backpack.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Rihanna In Alaia, Marion Cotillard In Dior Couture, Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen & Frank Ocean In Dior Homme

BDOTW Womens 18 Feb

Despite an amazing week of stunning gowns, it was a two clothes-horse race for the title of Best Dressed this week.

It was a close call, but you eventually picked Rihanna’s Alaia Grammy dress as your favourite, whereas I picked the runner-up Marion Cotillard.

We may grumble at the French actress always wearing Dior, but she wears it so well.

Many wouldn’t have been able to pull off this fashion-forward look with such ease, plus I love bold colour, which brightened up a cold and rainy evening in London.

When it came to men, our choices again couldn’t be more different. You picked the handsome Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen, whereas I opted for Frank Ocean in Dior Homme.

Aside from the sleek ink-blue colour, I loved that he wore such a laidback piece on a red carpet where most of the men opted for a classic tux. The Grammys is the one place to stand out and do something different so I’m glad he didn’t opt for a suit and tie.

Rihanna In Azzedine Alaia – 2013 Grammy Awards

2013Grammys_Rihanna1

Multiple nominee Rihanna played the ultimate lady in red at the 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted this evening at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

The Barbadian beauty looked unbelievably stunning—and sophisticated—in her candy-apple-coloured, custom dress by Azzedine Alaia that was positively delicious.

The diaphanous A-line design with a long train was a flowing addition to the red carpet. I loved the criss-cross detail in the front that continued at the back.

And because this is the boundaries-pushing Rihanna after all, the look was slightly see-through, as she played her own game of peek-a-boo at the awards show.

This was an incredible outing from Ri Ri, especially with her refined styling that included minimal jewels, pretty ombre curls and a red lippie.

Rihanna In Christopher Kane – Chris Brown’s Home

Rihanna In Christopher Kane - Chris Brown's Home

On-again off-again couple Rihanna and Chris Brown were spotted leaving Brown’s home in Los Angeles, California yesterday afternoon, as Chris was due in court over claims that he allegedly lied about finishing his community service.

Rihanna, who is determined to stand by her man, wore a Christopher Kane Resort 2013 blouse with black jeans.

Her punk-luxe floral-print shirt with a painterly print doesn’t quite scream ‘headed to court’, but this rebellious paint-slash look embodies the cutting-edge style we associate with the singer.

Black pumps, dark shades and a black Dolce & Gabbana tote completed her look.
