Celebrity Style On Trial: Rihanna in drop-crotch pants and crop top

90825M2_RIHANNA_B-GR_07

Rihanna tends to get away with a lot of things that other people just wouldn’t. Fashion-wise, we mean. This is because… well, it’s because she’s Rihanna, basically. Would you mess with her?

Can she get away with the ubiquitous dropped-crotch, saggy-hipped pant, though? You know , the style that almost every brand in creation seems to be pushing right now, but which we’ve yet to see anyone wear well? What if she teamed those droopy pants with that other hard-to-pull-off-unless-you’re-Rhianna item: the crop top? Would that STILL be OK?

We’re staying schtum on this one. It’s totally up to you to decide. What do you think of Rihanna’s outfit?

    UGH. Just because its purported to be stylish doesn’t mean it flatters your body. In my own little personal opinion, good fashion is about flattering your body type.

    I think the combination makes her look pregnant.

    When my sister was a toddler, she had some stretched-out knit pants. We called them “droopy drawers.” Marginally acceptable for an 18-month-old, not in the least for an adult.

    the look on her face pretty much says it all.

    Um, why is this even on trial?

      Because not everyone has the same opinion about things: there are lots of examples where something I’ve hated has been deemed perfectly acceptable by other people, and vice versa.

    Bad, bad, bad. I have yet to see anyone look good in harem pants, and I hate crop tops too.

    She looks foolish, not stylish.

    The crop top isn’t so bad on her, but the droopy drawers only serve to make both her belly and her thighs look huge. And the high waist tends to ruin the effect of a crop top, too.

    The crop top might be alright without the horrible pants.

    What really freaks me out is that she looks like she’s wearing PJs and when you scroll the pic down – BAM!!! heels. WTF?!

    Guilty as charged on all counts of indecent exposure of unsightly clothes!!!

    To the gallows with it! She’s clearly absconding with an entire shipment of Depends!

    Rihanna could pull off the crop top if she had paired any other bottoms with it (I mean, she can pull of almost anything), but no one, I repeat, no one can pull off harem pants.

    Also, are those leopard print shoes? With the jewelry, they add some bingo hall pizazz to an eighties aerobics video disaster.

    Notice that those are not just drop crotch but high waisted and theres alot of other gathered detail nonsense on the waist. No-one could look good in those pants, no-one! So I think she is lucky that this is even on trial because in my books, she has lost her crown thanks to this get-up.

      I actually think the gathered bits on the hips are the worst part of these. If it was just a dropped crotch she might have gotten away with it. Might have.

    The waistband of those pants is making her look like she has a tiny muffin top. There are lots of things Rhianna has, but a muffin top isn’t one of them. The pants remind me vaguely of large sacks of excess skin. Not flattering on anyone, even someone as gorgeous as Rhianna.
