While in Paris, France, Rihanna didn’t shirk her boundaries-pushing sartorial sensibility. Always the hair chameleon, she showed off a honey hue with the requisite dark roots, as she trotted out two daring, rebellious looks that no doubt kept the City of Light on its toes.
L’Avenue Restaurant: On Tuesday, the Barbadian beauty had a top-to-toe Chanel moment—one that Coco Chanel herself could probably never have fathomed—at the prestigious eatery. Rather appropriately, she also toured Coco’s Parisian apartment. The bandeau top, high-waisted tennis skirt and blazer oozed of RiRi’s unique style. To the all-white ensemble, she added a hodgepodge of double Cs, including lapel brooches, a chain necklace, a major cuff, and funky round sunnies. The clunky, gold creeper sneakers from Chanel’s Resort 2013 collection finished out the look. It was glam-grunge at its finest, but was it too much to swallow?
Azzedine Alaïa Dinner: The songstress continued her rambunctious style, this time in an all-out Azzedine Alaïa look at a dinner for the designer. The skintight, velvet maroon catsuit brought RiRi’s curves to the party, and the deep V-neck showed off her Isis tattoo. She indulged in massive accessories, from her pile of door-knocker, tasseled necklaces to a wild python clutch that was large and in charge. More impact came with black suede circle sandals and a matte oxblood lip. After all, ‘over-the-top’ has never been part of Rihanna’s vocabulary.
