Style Evolution: Rihanna

She doesn’t need an introduction, period, and if you don’t know who she is, then you’ve been living under a rock. Other than her chart topping success, she’s known for constantly reinventing her style and image. Riri recently had her 26th birthday, and we thought the best way to honor her was a look back at her chameleon-like style evolution. She’s definitely transformed from her cookie-cutter teen queen days, and now we never know what she’s going to pull off next (it’s usually something pretty good).

Riri started with perfumes and worked her way into fashion, naturally. She’s worked with Armani and also designed a River Island capsule collection for four seasons. Her first TV show “Styled to Rock” is a UK series about assisting up-and-coming British designers. The US version premiered in 2013. Plus, she’s now the face of Balmain, and she’ll be receiving a Fashion Icon Award in June from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. If that’s not fashion cred, then we don’t know what is.

With that being said, we loved putting this gallery together as it allowed us to reminiscence about her unique (bejeweled jeans) and grand (hanging out with Karl Lagerfeld!) moments. Put her albums on shuffle, click through the gallery, and check out our Rihanna inspired GoJane picks below!
