"She's one of the coolest, hottest, most talented, most liked, most listened to, most followed, most impressive artists at work today," Stella McCartney
wrote of Rihanna
s "100 Most Influential People in the World" feature. "But she does it in her own stride." It wouldn't be a stretch to say the same about the pop star's style.
For the magazine's celebration gala, she made an appearance in this magenta Marchesa
gown. The Resort 2012 piece had a strong '80s prom vibe, but also gave nods to Madonna's Gaultier cone bras and the au courant high-low hem
movement. Her black Louboutins were at first a bit jarring until you get a glimpse of the glitzy silver heels
that make them worthy of such a dramatic dress.
Rihanna's hair is back to black (thank goodness) and she makes that new punk shaved 'do of hers look so refined. But don't expect her zany hairstyles to be quite as influential as she is.
