Battleship: Rihanna In Stella McCartney

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

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.

Buy Her Style: Pick up Rihanna’s t-shirt online at River Island for £20.

Will you be buying?

Grammys 2012: My Best Dressed – Rihanna and Katy

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

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!!!
