Happy Birthday Rihanna!
I should have been done this. I wanted to release something on her bday to pay homage, but I didn't partly because of my own laziness but I can no longer avoid it. Scratch that is is her birthday! It simply must be said Rihanna is a fashion icon for sure. In my humble and expert opinion no one does style better than Rihanna Fenty. For this reason she is my lesbian crush and style bae. Now to break down exactly why Rihanna is a style maven and the no. 1 style icon of out time.
1. Rihanna stays true to herself. It is clear that Rihanna wears what Rihanna wants to wear based on how she feels. How do I know this- because it is too effortless for someone to have just told her what to wear. When your style is genuinely you- you embody it and conquer it in a way that is only possible if you truly believe in what you are wearing.
Which brings me to another point if Style Maven, Rihanna Fenty has a stylist. Why do some of you take offense to the suggestion that you should too? I'm not necessarily saying that your style is problematic- although it very well could be. I am only saying that know your strengths. Of course Rihanna has her own style, but it doesn't hurt to have someone's who's whole career and being is dedicated to fashion. It allows Rihanna to be Rihanna- the international pop star that she is while still maintaining her image and turning heads with her fashion selections.
So if you are lawyer ,doctor, educator, or entrepreneur invest in a stylist so you can concentrate on being the best at your craft and let someone like me do the style work. I promise you won't be disappointed.
