Pop diva Rihanna has regained her fashion throne- and rather quickly I might add. Some say the singer stumbled terribly on Tuesday night when she showed up for the Met Costume Gala dressed in a ladies tuxedo suit. Only 21 and yet already deemed a fashion icon, Rihanna is expected to wow whenever she steps outside the door and some say wow she did when she was spotted shopping in New York City the next day. Rocking a leather jacket, cut off shorts and thigh high boots, the pop diva drew a crowd as she shopped at a boutique on 5th Avenue.
Definitely not an outfit the average woman would wear on a cold rainy New York day- yet Rihanna seems to pull it off brilliantly. This girl can truly wear anything.
And in that chart news I mentioned earlier, Billboard says after only 4 years in the business Rihanna has become one of the most successful singles artists ever, coming in above both Beyonce and the great Aretha Franklin. Rihanna ranks 10th for artists with the most gold (500,000), platinum and multi-platinum (1 million+) singles in the United States.
Love her or hate her, I’m happy for her success.
