When Rihanna first emerged on the music scene in 2005, she was a fresh-faced, teenage Barbadian beauty “in faded jeans and embroidered linen blouses.” With her hypnotizing sound and effervescent spirit, it didn’t take long for her to achieve rock star status, and while she was busy churning out hit after hit, her style simultaneously evolved to follow suit. She chopped off her hair off and dyed it jet black, and from that point on, her edgy, ever-changing image was perpetually photographed. Whether summoning her siren side in floor-length Azzedine Alaïa, putting a statement-making spin on Chanel, or wearing her own River Island collaboration, Rihanna has become one of fashion’s most exciting muses.
