Rihanna In Saint Laurent Mens - Out In London

Returning to her modish menswear streak, a monochromatic Rihanna couldn’t be missed, as she made the rounds in London, England today.

Refusing to box in her style, the provocative songstress stepped out in a Saint Laurent Menswear Spring 2014 ‘Perfecto’ checquered, black-and-white jacket, paired with black, skinny leather trousers and a leather belt with triangle detail.

A spike-studded choker and rows of door-knocker rings further edged up the rockabilly sensibility, alongside her mullet-inspired ‘do. Another incarnation of the still-strong white Manolo Blahnik
BB leather ankle strap pumps made an appearance, too.

I cannot decide if it’s a good thing or not that the male model on the runway has on more lipstick than RiRi.

Seeing this box-y blazer immediately reminded me of Louis Vuitton’s ubiquitous checquered print trend.

Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Here’s a quick catch up of the front row who caught my eye during New York Fashion Week this weekend.

Ciara @ Prabal Gurung: The singer wore a pretty Prabal Gurung embroidered angular insert dress with a flared silhouette styled with bondage boots courtesy of Casadei, which were presented during the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

Solange Knowles @ Alexander Wang: What’s not to love about Solange’s outfit? The colour, the quirky glasses, the Wang Resort 2014 skirt, that bag and those sexy sandals…? Perhaps it shouldn’t, but it ALL works.

Rihanna @ Opening Ceremony: It’s been a while since we saw Rihanna front row at NYFW, as she tends to skip the shows and head to the after-parties. On Sunday she was front and centre at Opening Ceremony wearing a grey Zac Posen satin floral dress with Underground ‘Wulfrun’ creepers with a Lynn Ban choker. A part of me wants to say it’s ridiculous to pair such a pretty dress with creepers, but I have to say she sells it to me, as per.

Rihanna In adidas Originals x Jeremy Scott -  Out In New York City

It rained on Monday in New York City, so cab-hailing Rihanna had to carry an umbrella to keep herself dry with no assistant or doorman to help her.

Her menswear adidas Originals x Jeremy Scott mesh basketball tank top which featured a train probably wasn’t the best choice on this occasion, especially when she was forced to hold it to keep it dry, but when has practicality ever stopped the fashion-loving singer?

The rest of her laidback B-girl look featured colour-coordinated Jordan sneakers, her favourite Chanel choker, Le Specs ‘Bowie’ sunglasses and the same Chloe ‘Baylee’ two-tone bag we’ve seen on the arm of Rita Ora.

Rhianna In Rihanna for River Island - Out In New York City

Rihanna may have opted for a camouflage look when leaving her apartment in New York City yesterday evening, but she was far from being inconspicuous.

The singer, who was headed to JFK to catch a flight to LAX, wore a Rihanna for River Island onesie styled with a ‘G4Life’ beanie, Le Specs ‘Bowie’ shades and Balenciaga ‘Arena’ black sneakers.

I’m all for being comfortable when it come to in-flight attire, but I would never consider buying a onesie. Oversized babygro springs to mind.

Rihanna In Balmain - VMAs After-Party

Rihanna joined Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z in the rooftop lounge of PH-D at the Dream Downtown in New York City on Sunday following the VMAs.

Not wanting to leave her cocktail behind, she was spotted leaving carrying her beverage, wearing a sexy Balmain long-sleeved jacquard mini dress styled with Manolo Blahnik sandals, the same Lynn Ban jewels she had worn earlier in the evening, plus a gold body chain.

This is a sexy Rihanna I can get on board with. Sexy without trying to damn hard.

“Why didn’t she wear this to the main event?” I’m sure many of you are asking.

I guess she didn’t want all eyes on her when she wasn’t a nominee, even though the camera panned to her several times during the live broadcast.

Rihanna In Rihanna for River Island - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Rihanna opted to go low key to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday evening as she made a last-minute decision to attend the event.

She opted to skip the red carpet, taking her seat in the front row wearing an MC Lyte graphic t-shirt that read ‘Gotta Get A Ruff Neck’ with jeans from her Rihanna for River Island collection and black sandals.

Low key didn’t mean low on glamour as she added a diamond choker and matching cuff to her laidback look, with a vintage Chanel velvet bag, Lynn Ban cuff plus a hot-red lip with a tiny gold cross ‘grill’ between her two front teeth providing the finishing touch.

I love the look. She totally nailed it. Sexy doesn’t have to mean letting it all hang out.

She looks way better than a few of the other attendees I could name – Sarah Hyland and Erin Wasson immediately spring to mind.
