The Barbadian beauty opens up about her style icons, praising the late Princess and calling her ‘gangsta with her clothes.’ Who knew RiRi was such a fan of Princess Diana’s style?
Rihanna looks absolutely stunning on the cover of Glamour , where the 25-year-old songstress poses in a black, long-sleeved Dior bodysuit accented with Kenneth Jay Lane hoops and a Lynn Ban vintage Chanel Cuff. The glossy pages feature the sexy songstress in her usual hot, monochrome numbers — and she also opened up about fashion and who she finds as a major inspiration!
Rihanna On Princess Diana:
While RiRi clearly has her own sense of style, (and she isn’t afraid to flaunt it!), there’s one person in particular that she considers a major inspiration. “Oh my God, are you kidding me? Nicole Richie. She just pisses me off, she’s so good. But you know who is the best who ever did it? Princess Diana. She was like—she killed it. Every look was right. She was gangsta with her clothes. She had these crazy hats. She got oversize jackets. I loved everything she wore,” she tells the mag. While we didn’t know Rihanna was such a Princess Diana fan we love it — and we couldn’t agree more!
Rihanna On Her Sense Of Style:
The pop star isn’t shy when it comes to sharing her unique sense of style and what inspires her one-of-a-kind looks. “My love for fashion—let me say, my admiration for fashion—started with my mom. I used to watch her get dressed. She was around my age right now, and she was so fly. So fly. I remember not even knowing how to do that because I was such a tomboy.”
Rihanna Discusses The Origin Of ‘Styled To Rock’:
She also spilled on the launch of her upcoming fashion reality show. “I felt like there were all these talented people in New York who had a very keen eye for style and design, but I couldn’t find them [to work with]. I get excited by discovering new designers. I’m obsessed with being first with everything in fashion. “
Rihanna’s ‘Glamour’ PICS:
In the mag, RiRi flaunts her curvaceous figure in immaculate looks featuring designers like Chanel, Miu Miu, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Lynn Ban and Kenneth Jay Lane. Our favorite shot captures a beautifully toned Rihanna in an all-black, bra and boxer-brief set that accentuates her sexy physique. The songstress sports a fabulous Marc Jacobs coat and Rene Caovilla sandals. The glamorous look is completely with an extraordinary Chanel pearl necklace, a Lynn Ban vintage cuff and Neil Lane cocktail rings.
