Rihanna In Lanvin – The Voice Finale

Following her performance on the UK X Factor finale last week, Rihanna showcased her singing talents once again on another reality singing competition last night; this time it was for the live finale of ‘The Voice’.

On this occasion she donned a Lanvin Spring 2013 jumpsuit.

Her luxe tuxedo jumpsuit, covered entirely with Swarovski embroidery, was styled with the same crystal bracelet, crystal belt, and bronze sandals we saw on the runway. She also wore a version of the large crystal necklace, without the choker aspect.

Rihanna usually likes to go big and bold, so I’m surprised she toned down that part of the look, but I guess wearing a choker when singing live wouldn’t be such a smart move.

Flawless makeup and her cute pixie cropped ‘do, which I much-prefer of all her hairstyles, completed her look.

Rihanna In Balmain – ‘Wetten dass…?’

Style-savvy songstress Rihanna performed her new single, ‘Diamonds’ on the popular German TV show, ‘Wetten, dass…?’ on Saturday evening.

RiRi brought a sense of subtle sex appeal to a modern Balmain Spring 2013 ensemble which featured a tiny white cropped halter and baggy leather pants, to which she added a chunky gold Chanel belt, which was a fabulous mixture of Euro-trash opulence and haute-couture sophistication.

The midriff-baring star’s finishing touches were Manolo Blahnik killer heels.

We love that Rihanna is always true to her unique sense of style – both on-stage and off.

She is one of the few singers able to totally transform a look just by the way she wears it while performing to a captive audience.

Her short hairstyle looks especially chic paired with the softness of the outfit’s top.

Rihanna In Nini Nguyen – ‘Nude’ Fragrance Launch

After a wild week on her ‘777’ tour, where she mostly wore menswear, Rihanna switched back to opting for a more feminine look for the launch of her latest fragrance, ‘Nude’, held at Macy’s in Westfield Century City in California on Saturday afternoon.

The singer selected an ivory-and-white Nini Nguyen dress.

Her dress features a bustier top with a part-crepe, part-lace skirt worn over hot pants.

This is most definitely a look very few could pull off, so thankfully it was picked up by Rihanna.

A gold vintage Christian Lacroix choker and black Tom Ford python pumps accessorized her look.

I love the soft wavy tresses and neutral makeup. While we all know Rihanna is a bad ass chick, it’s great to see her softer side on this occasion.

Rihanna In Damir Doma – ‘Unapologetic’ Album Launch

After her seven days and seven cities ‘777’ tour, Rihanna launched her new album ‘Unapologetic’ at Best Buy in New York City yesterday evening.

The singer wore a Damir Doma Spring 2013 leather outfit which, despite being womenswear, has a very masculine feel to it.

Her top and baggy pants were styled with a chunky gold Chanel necklace, Manolo Blahnik heels and a leather Skingraft hat.

Red lips and long luscious lashes completed her look.

For me, Rihanna is on a roll: these menswear-inspired looks are really working for her. I guess when you have so many people biting your style, you have to switch gears and do something new.

Rihanna In Raf Simons & Acne – Westfield Stratford Christmas Lights Switch On

Rihanna was on hand to switch on the Westfield Stratford City Christmas lights in London today, ahead of her ‘777’ concert in the capital this evening.

The singer may have been inspired by my menswear posts from last week because she wore an Acne blue-and-grey striped sleeveless top with matching pants, both from the Spring 2013 menswear collection, with a crisp white shirt.

To keep her warm, and to up the ante style-wise, she donned a Raf Simons Fall 2012 electric-blue double-breasted coat.

I adore this look from head to toe. This is more like the Rihanna I know and love: creative, inspiring, pushing the envelope and leaving her copy-cats in her wake.

Feminine touches came via her red lippie, rockabilly hairstyle, red talons and grey suede pumps.

I’m so going to try to recreate this look in some way, shape or form.

Rihanna In Versus – The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Rihanna kick-started the promotion of her new album ‘Unapologetic’ and her world tour ‘777’, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week.

Ellen was more interested in who Rihanna was dating. When asked if she was dating anyone, Rihanna’s answer was simple: “No”.

The singer wore a vibrant Versus Spring 2013 dress, our first look at this collection off the runway.

I love this vibrant pink sleeveless A-line dress, which featured mesh panels at the waist and in the skirt, as I enjoy Rihanna’s more playful approach to fashion. The risqué stuff gets boring really quickly.

Sporting her current favoured slicked-back do, the singer opted for barely-there makeup, save for a nude glossy lip colour, and silver hoop earrings.
