Style File: Rihanna

"I want to give people a taste of the Caribbean, and show them the fun side of me."--Rihanna
Hey Boos,
Today's Style File superstar is none other than my fellow Caribbean Queen (buck, buck!)...

...Rihanna!
Homegirl's seriously been stepping her style game up lately, and has learned that travesties like this....

...and this....

are wholely unacceptable!
Let's take a look at her steez:
On the red carpet, she looks absolutely stunning in short, age appropriate dresses characterized by sequins...



Pretty graphic prints...

...and pale yet pretty colors that complement her eyes and skin tone.


For her more casual events, she sticks to skinny jeans and fun tops like cropped vests...

...and long tunic tops...

Cute!
Want her look? Here are a few items that can get ya started:

Top Row: Graham & Spencer Silk Cami Dress, $264, www.nordstrom.com; Tri-color Chiffon Dress, $90, www.ardenb.com.
Bottom Row: Sleeveless Blouson Dress, $98, www.bebe.com; Cropped Cotton Jacket, $22.80, www.forever21.com.
Smootches!
PS I'm almost ashamed to say that Rihanna's new single "Umbrella" is growing on me...

I hated on it at first, but, something about "Ella, Ella Ay, Ay" is so catchy...boo!

Don't feel bad. I was thoroughly upset at the extra syllable added into the word "Umbrella". Now, not so much. I lOVE her in that purple bandage dress.

As a forehead person myself, I can appreciate a famous forehead. She's stepping the style game up.
