Recording artist and pop culture star Rihanna has made a name for herself in the fashion scene as a daring dresser with a diverse range of tastes. Often snapped by street style paparazzi and red carpet shutterbugs, her ensembles–both casual and high-end–never fail to impress. In 2014, Rihanna got the ultimate style cred when the Council of Fashion Designers of America gave her the CFDA Fashion Icon Award. She garnered even more buzz for what she wore that night–a custom Swarovski adorned gown designed by Adam Selman with a matching headdress that only Rihanna could pull off.
Rihanna rules the style scene, not only as the face of major fashion houses like Balmain and landing magazine covers, but also with her own line of fragrances and quick-selling makeup collections with MAC Cosmetics. She seamlessly steps into the world of high fashion, hanging out with Karl Lagerfeld and Cara DeLevigne, and continues to be a powerhouse in the music industry.
When the songstress is feeling avant-garde, she’s been known to reach for pieces like barely there Alexander Wang dresses, Opening Ceremony catsuits and Brian Lichtenberg T-shirts and hoodies. But when the occasion calls for her to glam things up, RiRi looks equally as confident in dazzling couture gowns from designers like Stella McCartney and Giambattista Valli.
