Rihanna is the InStyle magazine august cover girl.
she is so hot right now, she is literally everywhere. and you know she has made a style impact when women are actually requesting the Rihanna as their new hairstyle. crazy to think that this 20 year-old barbados native has skyrocketed beyond (at least my) expectations to become one of the most sought after, pop-star phenoms.
the august issue of InStyle features the topic of breaking style rules, and Rihanna would like to crush some of her own: "the idea of not wearing brown and black together seems so dated. the other day i wore a black t-shirt, black Nobody jeans, a brown leopard-print belt by Dolce & Gabbana, and brown Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and it looked awesome. also the rule about not matching your makeup to your outfit. i do that onstage, matching red lipstick to a bright red jacket or neon-pink eye shadow to a pink jumpsuit. and i also love to mix prints."
on her style evolution:"it has evolved without my even noticing it. lately i’m obsessed with Thierry Mugler…Grace Jones inspires me…she has extraordinary style and she’s fearless. i love designer Martin Margiela: Kanye West told me about him. i also like Dsquared, Chloé, Zac Posen—he makes flattering lines." (see what she used to look like)
her mom owns a boutique and her father works in a garment factory, so it's a bit obvious that a fashion line would be in the works: "i am working on that right now. it takes a lot of effort, and i want to be involved with every step of the process."
