Rihanna In Balmain – VMAs After-Party

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.

Rihanna In Rihanna for River Island – Out In New York City

Rihanna In Rihanna for River Island – Out In New York City

Rihanna was spotted exiting Da Silvano restaurant after having brunch in the West Village of New York City yesterday afternoon.

Once again she was rocking different pieces from her River Island Fall 2013 collection.

Starting from the top, she wore a black ‘G4Life’ beanie with Chanel vintage shades. Her dark-denim jacket with a built in hoodie did little to cover up her ‘G4Life’ white bralet, which she wore with camo ‘RiRi’ leggings.

Her high-low urban-street-style look was completed with a velvet quilted Chanel box bag, black Balenciaga ‘Arena’ sneakers, Lynn Ban bracelets and a Jennifer Fisher body chain.

Is Rihanna doing enough to make you want to buy this collection when it hits stores on September 12?

This weekend Rihanna was spotted Miami Beach, Florida on Saturday evening.

The singer wore her third look from her River Island Fall 2013 collection.

She wore a mono-print cut-away top with layered sleeves with matching mono-print leggings with an elasticated ‘RiRi G4Life’ waistband.

Very Givenchy-esque, wouldn’t you agree?

Rihanna In Tom Ford - Out In New York City

Rihanna was spotted stepping out in New York City yesterday evening.

Going from camo print to zebra print, the singer donned a Tom Ford Fall 2013 long-sleeved dress with sheer inserts and a goat-hair collar.

I don’t know about you, but that collar looks as itchy as hell.

I’m not as bold (cray cray) as Rihanna to wear this look, but if I was I would’ve taken scissors to that neckline.

Rihanna is her own best brand ambassador: when talking about her River Island Fall 2013 collection she said “I literally designed everything I want to wear – exactly how I want to wear it”.

That statement rang true because for the second day in a row she wore three pieces from her collaboration with the British retailer, which is still yet to be released.

Mixing high street with high-end, she wore a camouflage crop top (£25) with ‘G4Life’ in black on the back, with dark-denim rolled-up jeans (£50) with her ‘R’ logo etched above the pocket.

Her accessories included her ‘Barely There’ camo sandals (£60), with a Givenchy ‘Madonna’ clutch, Le Specs Bowie shades, a gold quilted vintage Chanel cap and a stack of bling completing her look.

I’m glad to see the return of the black cropped ‘do. Are you?

The Rihanna for River Island Fall 2013 collection hits stores and will available at RiverIsland.com on September 12.

Rihanna for River Island

On Monday the images of Rihanna’s River Island Fall 2013 collection were released by the British fashion retailer; by Tuesday she was wearing two pieces from said collection while out in New York City hailing a cab.

She wore a cropped layered hoodie, which will retail for £40, with black jeans emblazoned with ‘RiRi’ on the waistband and ‘G4Life’ on one leg.

Whether you like this collection or not, you can’t deny the pieces are perfectly in tune with her street style, as perfectly showcased on this occasion, plus the price point is perfect for her adoring fans who want to emulate her sassy street style.
