If you thought the past two months were all about Beyoncé, think again. Baddie Bey may have dominated the media and sold out an international tour in seconds, but Rebellious RiRi's been ridin' high as pop's most notorious princess since "Diamonds" dropped in September.
Seems like the fashion world can't RIHsist the Bajan singer (sorry, we had to do it). She's had seven chart topping albums, a seven day global tour, won seven Grammys, and seven Billboard awards — all within seven years. So, it's only natural that Rihanna hand-picked seven of her most iconic looks to mark the launch of her Rihanna for River Island collection at Opening Ceremony. The New York boutique will pay homage to these seven looks while also carrying the River Island collection exclusively beginning Tuesday. To celebrate RiRi's foray into the fashion world, OC is titling the entire thing a "RIHtrospective."
The superstar is as famous for her fashion as she is for stirring up controversy, be it by Instagram or on Twitter. Her stylist, Mel Ottenberg, told WWD that "RIHtrospective" will showcase the fashion chameleon's style range from "really pulled together or grungy for performances." The show will run for three weeks, but don't expect to see Rih around Opening Ceremony; she begins her world tour next week. Hey, just call us RIHfinery29, because that Rihanna reign just won't let up. (WWD)
