You could say that 2017 was the “Year of Rihanna”…and we’re not complaining! This year saw the music superstar conquer the beauty industry with the release of her Fenty makeup line. The high-quality line has been praised for creating a variety of products in a wide range of skin tones – something that many other cosmetic companies have failed to do. Lyst even named Rihanna the “Celebrity Style Influencer of the Year.” As far as we’re concerned, everything RihRih touches turns to gold, and that includes her wardrobe. 2017 was a year of remarkable fashion, and Rihanna was leading the pack. From the red carpet to street style, we’ve put together Rihanna’s Top 10 Best Looks of 2017. Check them out here:
If we’re being honest, we’re not huge fans of fur. With that said, we’re throwing that to the wayside to pick this as Rihanna’s best look of the year. The fur coat/cuffed jeans/layered necklaces/black boots ensemble she wore to a Christian Dior show back in May looked absolutely flawless on her. So flawless, we’re compromising our beliefs!
Back in February Rihanna wore this two-piece Armani Prive ensemble to the Grammys. The bright orange and black combination would look silly on anyone else (Does anyone else think of Halloween when they see this combo?), but Rih pulled it off beautifully.
Pretty in periwinkle, Rihanna wore this Adam Selman gown to a Chopard party in May. The baby blue color reminds us of Cinderella’s ball gown…if Cinderella’s ball gown had a slit so high it revealed her underwear. It’s like Rihanna is our modern day Disney princess.
Rihanna turned heads back in June at The Revolve x Roc 96 party when she repurposed an oversized men’s shirt into a dress. Not many women could pull off such a feat and look this sexy. The crisp, white shirt is by JuunJ and we bet its sales among women skyrocketed after seeing Rih wear it this way.
Looking glamourous as ever, Rih kept it simple and classy in this black gown and diamonds by Chopard. They say you shouldn’t wear black in the spring, but Rihanna re-wrote the rules by wearing this gown in May. No wonder she won “Style Influencer of the Year”!
Rihanna was the undisputed Queen of the Met Gala this year. The annual event chooses a theme every year, and attendees wear the most striking outfit they can that fits the theme. As it turns out, RihRih was one of the only celebrities that actually followed this year’s theme: designer Comme des Garcons. The star’s outfit looked like a literal work of art, and we were totally obsessed.
The color of this two piece ensemble is absolutely everything. Every. Thing. Rihanna wore the bright yellow Oscar de la Renta outfit to the launch of her Fenty Beauty line at New York Fashion Week in September. Between the gorgeous color and strappy boots, we’re drooling. How can someone look this good?!
Tell us one other person who could look this good in an oversized men’s suit. Go on, we’re waiting. Rih wore the unique suit, white pumps and striped clutch back in May and we’ve daydreamed of it ever since.
Va va voom! Rihanna was a fabulous “Lady in Red” at the Valerian and The City of A Thousand Planets premiere back in July. The Giambattista Valli gown is sexy and sophisticated at the same time. We love that Rih kept it simple with minimal accessories.
This Rihanna street style is so good, we’re settling for a grainy paparazzi picture of it. The oversized hoops, black leather jacket, torn skinny jeans and glittery heels come together to make the hottest “I’m out running errands” look we’ve ever seen. All hail Queen RihRih!
