When it comes to fashion, Rihanna is usually more trendsetter than follower, but lately the pop star seems to be taking her fashion cues from her A-list friends. On Monday, she took to the stage at London’s O2 Arena in a sweeping light up dress that reminded us of the battery-operated gown that her gal pal Katy Perry donned to the Met Gala last week. Now, the singing sensation appears to be copying pal Justin Bieber’s style swagger. The singer was spotted leaving London restaurant Cipriani Wednesday night, donning a baggy black sweater and a bright neon flip cap–not to mention a styled coif that looked strangely familiar. This, just a few months after teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber sported a similar outfit–baggy sweatshirt, matching fitted cap and hair swoosh–while traveling to New York. It could just be coincidence that both stars have stepped out in near-identical outfits, but we can’t help but wonder if Rihanna is paying homage to her friends or taking a break from setting the trends.
