Rihanna's Best Fashion Moments
In honor of the announcement of Rihanna’s new luxury fashion label, Fenty, we’re taking a look back at some of the greatest style moments of her impeccably dressed career.
Paris Fashion Week 2014 in Chanel
Those blunt bangs! That Karl Lagerfeld-designed optical illusion of a dress! The matching sneakers! We wouldn’t be surprised if this is what Rihanna wears to play tennis.
Paris Fashion Week 2015 in Dior
From the soft palette to those killer boots, this whole ensemble is a masterpiece.
2009 "Hard" music video
An oldie but a goodie, this Bryce D’Anice Aime spike-shouldered dress is peak Rihanna, equal parts “Come hither” and “Stay the f— back.”
Arriving at Good Morning America in Pascal Millet in 2015
Of course Rihanna would wear a perfectly tailored suit and fur in head-to-toe millennial pink far before the rest of the world started craving the color.
2012 Grammys in Giorgio Armani
She doesn’t always have to experiment to make a statement: Less was more with this plunging Armani gown and a head of curls.
2011 Grammys in Jean Paul Gaultier
Somehow, this Jean Paul Gaultier gown reveals nothing and everything at the same time. And can we take a moment to reflect on how perfect her red hair was?
2013 Grammys in Azzedine Alaïa
Sometimes a classic look is the best, and Rihanna looked every bit the timeless beauty with Old Hollywood waves and an ethereal red gown. And as Cher Horowitz would say, “It’s an Alaïa!”
2009 Met Gala in Dolce & Gabbana
This is hardly the first time Rihanna has rocked a killer suit, but those larger-than-life puffy shoulders push it to the top of the list.
Clive Davis' Pre-Grammy Gala 2014 in Alexandre Vauthier Couture
Who else could show up in a glorified robe (and some Louboutin heels) and still be the best dressed person in the room?
2014 Met Gala in Stella McCartney
She makes this two-piece by Stella McCartney elegant and edgy all at once.
2015 Grammys in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture
The best part about this gown (besides making Rihanna look like a Barbie cake in the most wonderful way) is how much fun she has with fashion.
2014 CFDA Awards in Adam Selman
Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian, take note: Rihanna bared it all in a naked dress a full year before the two of them made it a Met Gala statement. With 230,000 Swarovski crystals and a headpiece that recalls Josephine Baker, it’s one of Ri’s most memorable — and daring — looks of all time.
2017 Met Gala in Comme des Garçons
This out-of-this-world Commes des Garçons dress fit the theme at the Met Gala, which celebrated Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo.
2015 Met Gala in Guo Pei
While some attendees at the 2015 Met Gala had problematic interpretations of the theme “China: Through the Looking Glass,” Rihanna essentially won Best Dressed and Best Student in this stunning couture gown by Chinese designer Guo Pei, which she told Vanity Fair she found by researching Chinese couture online.
