Rihanna In Giambattista Valli Couture – ‘Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets’ London Premiere

Rihanna stepped onto the blue carpet for the premiere of ‘Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets’ in London this evening (July 24), wearing her second Giambattisa Valli Couture gown in a row, going from millennial pink princess to busty babe.

I have no problem with a cleavage-heavy look, but her cup runneth over here.

While this look has all the drama I want from a summer blockbuster premiere, I’m not crazy about the look itself.

Mostly because I don’t associate this tent-like creation with her style, much like her Cannes Film Festival run.

Her last look saw her back to winning ways, but this is a step backwards for me as I’m just not feeling it at all.

Chopard jewels and a rose accented Jimmy Choo ‘Memento Cloud’ clutch rounded out her look.

Rihanna In Giambattista Valli Couture – ‘Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets’ LA Premiere

Rihanna was on a completely different planet from Cara Delevingne at the ‘Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets’ LA premiere on Monday (July 17)—if her look was any indication, that is.

Her style universe was one of bubblegum pink, cotton candy clouds, and frou, as she floated out this Giambattista Valli Couture custom high-low gown paired with custom Manolo Blahnik lace-up sandals for that distinct RiRi touch.

I always love it when Rihanna keeps us on our toes with unexpected turns such as this softer confection that oozed with girly, Victorian romance, dramatic tulle and chiffon layers, and whimsical pouf.

A matching Judith Leiber clutch and a light sprinkling of Chopard jewels completed the fantasy look with the appropriate amount of subtle restraint.

I’m sure some may be reminded of another sugar-sweet Giambattista Valli design she wore a couple of years ago.

Rihanna heads to dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Fenty x Puma

Rihanna made her way to dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California while taking her Fenty x Puma collection out for a spin.

When worn as a dress, this Fenty x Puma jacket had no shortage of rebellious femininity that was further edged up by her Fenty x Puma lace-up heels.

I imagine this is what the offspring of a baby-doll frock and a raincoat would look like.

As if the look didn’t have attitude enough, the jacket’s popped collar armed it with even more playful sportiness.

I can’t say I really understood the darker crimson Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2017 bag with the ballet-pink and nude colourways here, though.

Rihanna In Christian Dior – ‘Young Fashion Designer’: LVMH Prize 2017 Edition

Rihanna was at the ‘Young Fashion Designer’: LVMH Prize 2017 Edition to announce the winner on Friday (June 16) in Paris.

Some may liken this white eyelet Christian Dior Resort 2018 design to a mere sundress.

But, in the hands of Rihanna, she exchanged its western influence and made it more of a look fitting of a fashion occasion with her tilted bolero, Chopard jewels, and black pointy stilettos.

At first, I called for a belt in this look that combined a feminine softness with that Rihanna edge. But, she used the plunge and slit to make the silhouette sultry, thus  lessening the need for a defined waistline.

Rihanna In Juun.J – Madeworn x Roc96 Pop-Up Event

Rihanna was at the Madeworn x Roc96 pop-up event on Wednesday (May 31) in LA.

Her penchant for oversized proportions continued with this Juun.J Fall 2017 crisp white ensemble, which riffed on men’s shirting made sultry with the off-the-shoulder plunge and cinched belting.

Unlike her last overly big effort, this look had a higher level of sleek balance enhanced by a chain necklace and invisible Giuseppe Zanotti heels that lengthened the leg line.

Did this look also rank more highly for you?
