Rihanna’s New Style

Rihanna After viewing photos of Rihanna’s last few performance I can see a style for the promotion of her new album emerging. For anyone who has watched artists like Janet Jackson and Madonna transform themselves for every new CD, you know what I am talking about. Rihanna’s first two albums didn’t see much, if any change in her look and personal style. However, one look at her most recent performances shows someone obviously trying to create a new signature look for themselves. Now I don’t know exactly what style Rihanna is going for as she looks a cross between 1980’s Madonna and Pat Benatar. But I give the sista credit for trying to break out of the big blonde weave mold that so many other female artists have fallen prey to. Take a look for yourselves and let me know what you think. Personally, I am loving it !

Check out Rihanna on the pages below performing at Zootopia and at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend Performance.

  1. Looks a little like Kelis’s old style but it’s new to her.

  2. Doesn’t remind me of Kelis at all but it definitely rings of old school Madonna meets biker chick.

  3. I like it! The lace fronts, the big bag-o-weave and the super super long is making my neck hurt…lol

    Good look Rhianna! I might have to bite that hairdo girly! :brownsista:

  4. The whole look is from the 80s. And there is something about her going ‘against the grain’ that is making me like her a lot! Whew, I was sick of the mile long weaves on other artists out today and Rihanna is certainly delivering on originality and trend-setting.

  5. I love Rihanna’s style…It’s like she comes out of nowhere with some new ish all the time 😎

  6. She’s looks nice a lttle change doesn’t hurt. Even though I don’t remember her with blond hair I do remember her with auburn hair.

  7. I love her style she is very unique and fly as hell :thumbsup: .

  8. She reminds me of FeFe Dobson.

    Who coincidentally was bumped from Island Records a year ago. She’s a punk/rock chica, very young and gifted…

    Rihanna’s new ‘image’ reminds me of her.

    I agree! I love it too! No weave, it’s all her hair and she looks amazing! :iagree:

  10. :thumbsup: im feeling the new look. and i agree that its so good to see a young black entertainer have black hair instead of going california valley girl with a six-foot blonde weave

    :iagree: she reminds me of FeFe a lot in these pictures.

  12. Oh yeah I forgot FeFe. She never did quite take off so not many people know of her but yep Rihanna’s image is very FeFe-esque. :thumbsup:

  13. Now I could be wrong be, unlikely anyway, but I believe that her hairstyle is supported by short weave, it doesn’t look real to me, but has great potential to mislead. Everyone keeps saying ‘she got a haircut’ but her long her was never real to start with. So how can someone who wears a wig get a haircut? 🙄
