Rihanna wears Antonio Berardi while promoting her new fragrance in London

The fact that it’s Rihanna wearing this outfit, and not, say… oh, almost ANYONE else, really… almost made our officers disregard it. You get used to stuff like this with Rihanna after a while, don’t you? It starts to seem normal and we tend to overlook it, purely on the basis of “But it’s RIHANNA!”

That statement sounds dangerously like something a fashion victim would say, though, (See also: “But it’s DESIGNER!” and “She’s X-celebrity: she can wear what she likes!” in our Fashion Victim Drinking Game for reference) so we feel that, whilst it IS, indeed, Rihanna, it’s also important to acknowledge that Rihanna is dressed like one of The Muppets here. In fact, she may actually be wearing one of The Muppets: it’s kind of hard to tell.

(Related: Did you know that we have an entire page of this site dedicated to Muppet Fashion? Yes, that is A Thing now. It’s a growing problem for society, too: innocent muppets are being hunted down and killed for their fur every day now, just so celebrities can wear turquoise fur while launching their new fragrances.)

What do we think of this, jurors? We’ll just say that we love her hair and makeup. We’ll leave the rest to you…

    Dreadful outfit! I actually like almost nothing about this look, not even the hair and make-up, except maybe for the shoes. I guess the shoes get to live. 🙂

    I think ‘frumpy’ is the word I’d use. And the Queen has a few coats in that colour.

    The top needs some relief, it’s imbalanced. Where is she under all that?

    Rihanna needs to go back to short hair. The curls do nothing for her.

    This outfit makes her look like a fashionable but overweight person. Not that there is anything wrong with that. But that top adds about 30 pounds where they do not exist on her, and the pants are just apologetic about it. Not flattering at all!

    Compared to some of the stuff she’s been caught in recently this looks positively demure, and also very dangly – the whole thing just hangs off her.

    On the subject of the drinking game of course X celebrity can wear what she wants – anyone can. As long as they’re prepared to get slagged off on t’internet. =)

    rihanna is so lucky she is so darn beautiful that she can pull off stupid hairstyles and hideous outfits.
    i like the fact that she dropped the red weave and that her hair looks natural. the make`up suits her.
    the outfit looks like big bird`s suit dropped in green dye. i sometimes wonder who picks these ridiculous clothes for stars and how they can`t see what ugly things they wear? it may be expensive, designer, etc but still is an ugly and unflattering outfit.
