Cover Loving: Rihanna For Glamour US

Glamour us nov rihanna Cover Loving: Rihanna For Glamour US %tag

Wow, now this is a whole different side of Rihanna. Gracing the November issue of Glamour US, Rihanna looks gorgeous and girlie showing off her curly cropped hair and striking eyes. Normally the singer is all about sex appeal, but what I love about this cover is how girlie she looks, with a touch of RiRi attitude of course!!!

Wearing a Dior bodysuit, Kenneth Jay Lane hoop earrings and a Lynn Ban cuff, this is one gorgeous cover, but what draws you in though has to be her make-up, from her dramatic eyes to the soft lip colour.

Made-up using products from her own Mac collection, I love the bronze and gold metallic eye shadow and strong eyeliner – it really does make her green eyes pop. With her eyes looking so incredible it looks like the rest of her face is make-up less. Simply gorgeous.

For me this is one captivating cover – are you a fan of RiRi’s latest editorial?

Behind-The-Scenes: Rihanna For River Island

A lot of people are excited to see Rihanna’s debut fashion collection, including me, and a lot of people have questioned her slot at London Fashion Week, but whether you agree with high street names showing at fashion week or not the anticipation for her line is incredible and this video just builds up the tension.

Rihanna sits alongside her costume designer and co-designer on the line Adam Shulman and chats about her excitement about dressing “young, sassy personalities”, to her love for River Island and British street style, as well as what we can expect from the collection, which she describes as “casual, chic, and flirty”.

I have to be honest I was excited before, but hearing her speak about the collection, seeing glimpses of swatches and sketches I really can’t wait for her LFW presentation.

Are you looking forward to shopping the Rihanna for River Island collection?

Holiday Style: Rihanna In Roberto Cavalli

RihannaRobertoCavalli1 Holiday Style: Rihanna In Roberto Cavalli %tag

Who: Rihanna

Where: On holiday in Positano, on the Amalfi Coast of Italy

Wearing: A white and red graphic shell printed silk Roberto Cavalli ensemble, consisting of a scarf halter and matching wide-leg trousers, teamed with a gold arm cuff and white Prada platform sandals

Verdict: I am loving this bold and sexy look from Rihanna while on holiday in Italy. Everything from the gorgeous shell print to the relaxed wide-leg style of the trousers, which you don’t really see Rihanna in to the sexy scarf halter top. I am also loving those retro-inspired Prada platforms in her hands. Also I think a special mention has to go to her hair – I don’t think I have seen it look so good.

If you follow RiRi on Instagram you will have seen that she is certainly having a good time – showing off her amazing body in a number of different bikinis, sharing her new Prada bag, as well as her love of leopard print!!!

Here’s hoping that her relaxed holiday style will be making an appearance in her up-coming collection for River Island which was announced this week. The capsule line, which marks Rihanna’s first foray into fashion design will launch for Spring 2013 – no word on what it will consist of other than it will be inspired by her style. I am expecting – lots of leopard print, ripped jeans, tiny shorts, plenty of bling and of course everything being delivered with a sassy attitude.

Here is what Rihanna had to say about it:

“I’ve been wanting to design my own collection for some time. River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family run business also really appealed to me. I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I’m looking forward to working with them and creating something really special.”

Are you a fan of Rihanna’s holiday style, and are you looking forward to her style hitting River Island next year?

Battleship: Rihanna In Stella McCartney

RihannaStella Battleship: Rihanna In Stella McCartney %tag

Who: Rihanna

Where: At the Australian ‘Battleship’ premiere in Sydney

Wearing: A black stretch all-in-one Stella McCartney jumpsuit from the pre-fall 2012 collection, teamed with black sandals

Verdict: I love this jumpsuit, it has an elegant tuxedo feel about it, while still having the sexy sophistication that you expect from Stella McCartney, and I have to admit something I wouldn’t have thought Rihanna would wear to a premiere.

Even though I like this sleek look, I think her hot red lips and her RiRi attitude helps, I would have loved to have seen her work this all-black number with a pop of colour, maybe a neon pink clutch or vibrant sandals, but I am think a chic and simple vibe was more what she was after and it totally worked.

What do you think do you love Rihanna’s latest Stella McCartney look?

Shop Her Style: Rihanna Wears River Island

Rihanna Shop Her Style: Rihanna Wears River Island %tag

Wow, Rihanna really is becoming a Twitter monster, and I am loving it – especially when she tweets her fab piccies of herself and I just had to share this one from yesterday as she is sporting a £20 tee from River Island. Yep, you read that right, Rihanna is wearing high street!!!

The lovely RiRi is beginning to become River Island’s super fan, Topshop may have Beyonce who spent a fortune when she visited last year, but I think Rihanna and River Island is a great mix, and maybe it is because the retailer has a collection of tees with her face on them??? But word of warning I am sure that this grey Rolling Stones print tank top is going to sell out, so if you like snap up quickly!!!

I have to be honest I have no clue what the poses are all about, but other than the tee I am loving her red animal print jeans, as well as her return to her dark brown locks, which looks so much better than her blonde hair with dark roots.

Grammys 2012: My Best Dressed – Rihanna and Katy

GrammysKatyvsRihanna Grammys 2012: My Best Dressed   Rihanna and Katy %tag

After being utterly bored by the BAFTA red carpet I wasn’t really in the mood to stay up and watch the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, I did however catch-up this morning and I have to be honest there were a lot of hits and twice as many misses – but this is kind of what I expected from the Grammys.

For me the best dressed has to go to either Rihanna’s show stopping black silk cady custom Giorgio Armani gown or Katy Perry’s sky blue Elie Saab gown from the spring/summer haute couture 2012 collection. If it came down to just the dresses I think Katy would win, but her Smurfette hair is really putting me off, but then again I am not that thrilled by Rihanna’s roots either.

What I love about Rihanna’s look, which she co-designed with Armani is that it fitted her body perfectly, everything about this dress is sexy from the plunging neckline to the thigh-high split, to the dramatic open back and the mermaid silhouette into an elegant train – taking inspiration from Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface obviously works for RiRi as this is one great red carpet look.

On the other hand there is Katy Perry looking elegant in this exquisite fully-embroidered backless floral Elie Saab creation. Everything is divine from the colour to the simple ribbon belt, to the gorgeous floral appliqués, and I do love it when Katy does princess rather than quirky. If only her hair was elegant this would have be a clear winner for me.

A special mention has to go to both Fergie in this vibrant orange lace Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown from the spring/summer 2012 collection, hot off the Paris catwalk and Gwyneth Paltrow in a black cut-out Stella McCartney dress with gold belt from Stella’s Evening Collection for both looking absolutely incredible – seriously crazy hot bodies.

I know everyone isn’t going to love Fergie’s bold catwalk-to-red carpet look complete with black bra and big pants but I love that she totally went for it – and come on you all have to admit she is totally working this dress.

Bag Lust: The Yves Saint Laurent Cabas Chyc Tote

YSLCabasChyc1 Bag Lust: The Yves Saint Laurent Cabas Chyc Tote %tag

I do lust over designer handbags a lot and my latest obsession is Yves Saint Laurent’s Cabas Chyc leather tote that just exudes Parisian chic. Why am I loving this bag so much? Well for a tote I want a classic shape, something that it is sturdy and roomy, has a touch of elegance, and most of all something that can bridge the gap between casual to smart and everything in between *not asking for a lot then!*. Plus it is essential that a day tote is versatile.

The YSL Cabas Chyc certain is that. This roomy bag has a class about it, I love that the logo is a subtle ‘Y’, which doubles up as the buckle. I also appreciate a tote that can work in some many colours – this bag comes in every shade from the classic black, dark brown and beige, to vibrant red, magenta and ocean blue hues, and even has a subtle black leopard print and a very youthful black denim tote, which has a certain charm about it.

Don’t just take my word for it, this gorgeous tote seems to be the latest celebrity ‘It’ bag, seen on the arms of the likes of Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester, Aussie popstar Kylie Minogue, as well as Rihanna and the always stylish Sienna Miller. It also seems to be the go-to handbag for Hollywood elite as well as the Cabas Chyc has also been spotted with Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, and Salma Hayek.

The celebs may all go for the black and brown versions, which are great wardrobe staples and if you are going to spend over a thousand  pounds on a designer bag that then is probably the best to go for. But for me, I am just so in love with the midnight blue shade above, I don’t know why but this colour just looks so gorgeous against the gold accents, also I think it would work nicely with black, vibrant prints as well as a camel trench for the ultimate Parisian outfit. But at £1,195 from Net-a-Porter I better get saving!!!
