In Rihanna’s Closet – Balmain, Gareth Pugh, Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs & Stella McCartney

Balmain Spring 2010 Presentation, Paris

Rihanna skipped out on New York Fashion Week, but headed to Paris to view the Balmain Spring 2010 presentation.

She was fully decked out in Balmain wearing a Balmain black tuxedo blazer with a jewel brooch detail on the satin lapel, paired with Balmain Fall 2009 harem pants, Louboutin heels and a Balenciaga Brilliant Pouchette Bague.

I’m not crazy about her blonde streaks, but this is the best I have seen it styled.

Gareth Pugh Spring 2010 Presentation, Paris

Rihanna also attended Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 presentation.

She wore a very risqué sheer Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 modified dress, which left little to the imagination.

Normally we see look toned down off the runway, but Rihanna does the opposite.

Her look was paired with her favourite Balenciaga Brilliant Pouchette Bague, and Fendi cut-out heels.

Berlin Airport, Germany

On her way to Paris Rihanna arrived at Berlin Airport wearing a grey Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 sweater worn as a mini dress.

Gold jewelery accessorized her look, as did a crazy hat and Christian Louboutin leopard print ankle boots.

Marc Jordan and Katharina Harf’s Wedding, Venice

Rihanna wrapped a black shrug around her shoulders, but we can see enough of her black and grape Alexander Wang one-shoulder dress.

She wore grape lippy to match her dress, Louboutin pigalle heels and carried her Balenciaga clutch again.

Leaving Da Silvano Restaurant, New York

Hiding under her hoodie Rihanna wore Giuseppe Zanotti leopard print ankle boots with her cut-off denim shorts, ghetto gold and sheer top.

2nd Annual House Of Hype Directors Dinner, New York

It’s really hard to explain this sequined Jasmine di Milo Fall 2009 jumpsuit, or the reason why Rihanna decided to wear it with lace glasses.

I guess it’s one of those fashion forward moments she has that just don’t work for me.

Out & About, New York

Like many other celebrities, Rihanna is embracing the thigh-high boot trend as she was spotted in New York wearing a pair of Stella McCartney Perforated thigh-high boots, with a flouncy grey dress.

Runway To Sidewalk – Rihanna In Gareth Pugh

Rihanna was seen out and about shopping in New York yesterday.

During the day she wore a simple oversized Helmut Lang white shirt showing her bright orange bra, with denim shorts, white loafers and an Alexander Wang Denim Leather Brenda zip bag.

At night she transformed into an edgier look wearing a fitted white and black detailed jacket Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2009 collection with a black mini-skirt, and white gloves as she headed out to the Rose Bar at Gramercy Park Hotel.

Her look was completed with sunglasses – yes at night – and black Christian Louboutin heels.

I love this look minus the gloves. Rihanna is back.

A few weeks ago I feel she would have worn the WHOLE runway look, but she appears to have calmed down the extremes.

Her look is still edgy but less in your face.

Who Wore Gareth Pugh Better? Beyonce Knowles or Daphne Guinness


The world was in shock when Beyonce Knowles wore a not one, but two Gareth Pugh pieces to the MTV Europe Music Awards last November.

We were in shock that Beyonce would be aware of such an edgy designer, let alone wear his clothes because lets face it, at that point we were only used to seeing B in gorgeous flowing Lebanese designs or her mother’s vomit inducing pieces.

We weren’t so shocked when heiress Daphne Guinness wore Gareth Pugh to the Valentino: The Last Emperor New York premiere, because his Avant-garde pieces are very much what she wears day to day.

Despite that, I prefer the dress on Beyonce. Daphne’s black Azzedine Alaia belt, and the long-sleeve top, was overkill imo.

Runway To The MTV EMAs Stage – Beyonce In Gareth Pugh


When Beyonce Knowles performed her hit single If I Wear A Boy at the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards tonight, she wore ANOTHER Gareth Pugh creation. This time from the Fall 2008 collection.

The singer opted out of the ribbed leather leggings, but wore the dress, with structured shoulders and a peplum at the waist.

The single is a very slow gushy ballad, so you would have expected Beyonce to come out in a long flowing Elie Saab, or Versace gown, but no.

Could this be the turn around I have been praying for? Time will tell.

Runway To The MTV EMAs – Beyonce In Gareth Pugh


I had to do a double take when I saw Beyonce Knowles arrive at the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards in Liverpool tonight.

Beyonce Knowles floored me with pure shock that she was wore such an edgy British designer.

The R&B singer arrived on the red carpet wearing a modified Gareth Pugh Spring 2009 black dress, with gold Giuseppe Zanotti heels and gold metal glove.

I had to rub my eyes to make sure I was not seeing things. I mean who would have thought bland Beyonce could pull this off, and with a personality. Look at her posing.

Sasha fierce, thats for sure.

Regular readers will remember that Roisin Murphy wore a similar dress by the same designer right off the runway.
