She’s one of the best-selling artists of all time, has won a whopping eight Grammy Awards and is lauded as a international fashion icon – it can only be the irrepressible superstar that is Rihanna.
Barbadian singer, songwriter, and actress, Rihanna almost has too many accolades to count – she’s sold more than 230 million records worldwide, is the youngest and fastest solo artist to earn fourteen number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and received the Fashion Icon lifetime achievement award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 2014.
Recognised for her incredible style as much as her record-breaking music, Rihanna is a tour de force of creativity and talent. Collaborating with international fashion houses such as Dior and Armani, the singer has built an impressive portfolio of collections, partnerships and features across the fashion world.
Most recently, the singer has just released the first installment of her much anticipated Fenty Beauty cosmetics range. Available in over 150 countries, the line includes an array of products including foundations, highlighters, bronzers, blush compacts, lip glosses, and blotting sheets. The collection has attracted widespread and recognition for its inclusive and diverse range for all skin colours.
As a serious contender on the international fashion stage, Rihanna also has a penchant for a killer pair of shades. Whether it’s on the red carpet or snapped during off-duty moments, the singer loves to showcase her impeccable taste in statement shades!
Join us as we look at our favourite shades of 2017 so far, and how you can steal Rihanna’s style!
Supreme has been worn by celebrities all across the world this year, and Rihanna is no exception! Adorning an oversized light wash denim jacket, white Balenciaga baseball cap, chunky chain and a shock of aqua hair (with nails to match!), the singer’s look is absolutely on point.
We’re loving Rihanna’s statement shades here too! Decorative and unusual arms are big news right now, and the singer’s sunglasses are bang on trend.
Grab the Dior DIORVOLUTE2 to work your own statement style!
Soft, shell pinks have dominated 2017, and Rihanna puts her own spin on the trend in the above shot. Covered in beautiful pink beading, the singer threw it back with an early 2000s-esque outfit, and we couldn’t love it more!
Continuing the throwback vibe, Rihanna sported a pair of retro 60s inspired cat-eye shades, complimenting her look perfectly. Grab the Dolce & Gabbana DG6110 for your own retro vibe!
Denim on Denim
Did someone say double denim? Taking the fashion faux pas and flipping it on its head, Rihanna stepped out in a super oversized belted denim shirt and long dark wash denim skirt. It’s the kind of bold statement styling that we’ve come to love from the singer, who isn’t afraid to mix things up and move against fashion norms.
We’re loving the square statement shades here, too. The square frame trend made serious waves this summer, with oversized shades taking centre stage. Try the MaxMara Occhiali MM PRISM VI for your own slice of the trend!
Red Carpet Ready
Never one to shy away from unusual accessories, Rihanna adorns a stylised pair of white shades. We love the angular frames, particularly when teamed with the singer’s beautiful white dress and emerald jewellery.
We can always rely on Miu Miu to satisfy our statement cravings! Try the Miu Miu MU 11OS for an updated spin on the classic cat eye.
The statement square shades are back in full force in the above snap. We adore the open mac, drawn in with an emerald snake skin belt and featuring pastel pink fluffy cuffs. It’s a great example of Rihanna’s playful style, and love of teaming different materials and fabrics.
Embellished shades make a serious impact, especially when oversized too!
Try the Dolce & Gabbana DG6111 to steal Rihanna’s style.
