You know, The Fashion Police generally love Rihanna, because she rarely puts a fashion foot wrong. This weekend, though, we’d say she managed to put not one, but two feet wrong – and to be honest, it’s not her feet that’re the problem here (love those shoes!).
So, where to start? Well, first up, the dress on the left immediately reminded us of the Balenciaga dress we used in Wear or Die not so long ago. No, it looks nothing like it. It’s just that the patterning, combined with the expanses of cream satin makes her head look weirdly disembodied, while the material around the hips kind of merges into the background, creating the illusion of a strangely shaped body. Which we know she hasn’t got.
As for the outfit on the right: well, it’s a lace, hot-pant jumpsuit. And we’ve heard other comentators argue that that’s OK, because Rihanna totally has the body for it. While we’d agree that she has a great body, though, we can’t help but feel that this argument misses one essential point: that this is a lace, hotpant jumpsuit.
What do you think of these outfits? Do you applaud Rihanna for taking the risk, or do you agree with us that this wasn’t her most stylish weekend ever?
