There aren’t many stars these days about whom top designers might say, “She’s a very talented dresser” — as Pucci’s Peter Dundas does about Rihanna in March’s Vogue cover story about the megastar. In fact, we don’t know who else could garner effusive style praise from designers as wide-ranging as Alexander Wang (“There is no one else that excites me more”) to Tom Ford (of her style: “It’s everything pop culture needs to move forward.”). But that’s why she’s become a style icon in her own right — and why she’s gracing the fashion magazine for the third time.
And it’s also why it’s so great that Rihanna doesn’t take her style seriously at all. “My jewelry’s all fake — from Claire’s. Or I get it from my mom’s boutique in Barbados. Her shop’s called FAB-U-LUS,” she says. And she’s candid about her ever-changing hair. “It’s not my hair, but the girl who donated it, she’s the bomb,” she says. “I have two main hair people I work with. They’re always with me. I’m like, ‘I’m bored! I wanna change my hair!’ That’s the good thing about a weave. You can do whatever with it.”
