    Full disclosure: It’s nearly impossible to pick winners when it comes to Rihanna’s beauty looks. There are, after all, a lot to consider. First, we had to narrow down her best red-carpet moments, from the demure to the daring. Then, there are the looks she sports when off the clock, whether hitting a Clippers game or just running around New York. (Did you really think she just throws on some mascara and pulls her hair into a topknot before leaving the house? Not a chance.)

    So after a lot of hunting, we (somehow) landed on 18 that we, personally, love best — just in time for her birthday today. You may disagree with the retrospective, but know that we tried our best to sift through the wealth of gorgeous, striking, edgy, eye-catching hair and makeup that Barbados’ golden girl has rocked through the years.

    So without further ado, here is a (small) fraction of RiRi’s awesome appearances.
