In or Out: Rihanna in Antonio Berardi

Posted on August 22, 2011

Let’s start the week off with some good, old-fashioned judging.

Having ditched the longstanding Ronald McDonald/Jessica Rabbit look she’d been sporting for way too long, Rihanna unveils her latest mashup of iconic looks:

Rihanna launches her new fragrance “Reb’l Fleur” at House of Fraser in London in Antonio Berardi. Shoes by Christian Louboutin.


Cookie Monster + Dorothy Zbornak. With a little bit of Reba McIntyre’s hair circa 1994. The girl knows her references, we’ll give her that.

Darlings, we have found a new iteration of Satan’s Pants. That wily devil. Destroy one pair of apocalyptic pants and before you can turn around, up pops another pair. These pants need to be taken out to the desert and burned. Failing that, they need to be boxed up and sent to a retirement village where they will have a long (maybe) and happy life on the legs of people who will love them.

The top is cute, actually. Or it would be, if it was paired with something that didn’t offend our eyeballs. The shoes, of course, also need to be taken away from her. Silly Putty shoes are now OVER. We have no pull in the world of celebrity fashion but we figured it’s about time we started acting like it. This way, the next time some silly trend ho whips out the fleshpumps, we can say, “Didn’t we just declare this OVER? Were you not listening?”

And finally, there’s the hair. We won’t be so violent as to suggest it be taken out to the desert and burned, but maybe it can be re-purposed into pillow stuffing or something like that. One thing’s for sure, it shouldn’t be on top of her head.

Rihanna doll, this new look is a disaster.

 

 

VOTE NOW!

IN! Fun and colorful and unexpected, you catty bitches!

OUT! A furry Easter egg in a wig.

The Minion Opinion on ELizabeth Banks’ “torn between two dresses” dress was a loud and near-unanimous OUT.

    I give her points for deviating from the usual RC look. And with that aqua color, the “flesh” pumps work pretty well. I wouldn’t like black or white shoes with the outfit. But agreed, the pants are bad. 

    • Pennymac

      No offense, but those pumps are “nude”. To label them flesh colored is rather insulting to those of us who’s flesh is not of the beige shade.

      • Anonymous

        Or how about just beige?  Because Rihanna certainly wouldn’t be that color “nude.”

      • Anonymous

        Pennymac, please don’t take offense. My family is multiracial and I am well aware of issues of white privilege, especially in fashion. if you compare  her shoes to the usual very pale color of “nude,” hers are darker, a light tan rather than a faintly pinkish/bone white. And I did put the term “flesh” in quotes because it’s not a very good term, but I actually dislike the term “nude” more. I really don’t see that much of a difference between the two terms.

    Dear Rhianna,

    A few questions, if you please. Why have you swaddled your enormous forehead in a cat pelt turban? Why do you insist on wearing shoes that look like shining bandaid batter? Why have you slain an innocent snuffaluffagus for its hide and repurposed it so brazenly as a bib? PETA advocates everywhere are clutching their pearls. Finally, dear, sweet Rhianna, why are you wearing half a century old pantaloons? 

    No amount of perfume can cover the stench of poor taste.

    I actually want to thank Rihanna here for forestalling what might otherwise have been a sad trend. See, sometimes when clothes look good on a model, it’s easy to fool myself into thinking that I, a non-model, might also look good in them given the right fit and accessorizing. Okay, okay, so maybe it’s not easy to fool myself, but somehow I end up doing it anyway.

    Here, in this photo, there is no chance anyone could trick herself into buying a pair of pants that make Rihanna look like she has short legs and thick thighs. If Rihanna looks dumpy, there is no hope for me.

    Now I can take the money I’ve saved to buy what is surely a much better choice for my busty, chubby-armed, pear-shaped figure: an a-line, loose-fitting, turquoise maribou sleeveless blouse.

    I must say that T & Lo are being too kind and warmhearted here.  That top needs to be destroyed permanently, irreparably as well as the pants, shoes, and hair.

    For me that shirt is the worst of the bunch:  it makes both the skeletal model and Rihanna, who isn’t a size zero but has toned abs, look pregnant.   Seriously.  The first photo of Rihanna has her sporting an leaving-the-2nd-trimester bulky abdomen, while the poor model has the when-is-this-damn-baby-gonna-come-out look of a 3d trimester woman.  Of course, some of that is because the model is doing that fashionist thing of throwing her shoulders back and leading with her pelvis, which coincidentally is also how heavily pregnant women stand and walk in their constant battle against the gravitational pull of their giant stomach. Even so, it needs to die.

    “Cookie Monster + Dorothy Zbornak” pretty much says it all. This look is terrible in every way. Style. Color. Fit. Hair.

    Why, all of a sudden, are we being hit with so many entries for the Hall of Shame All-Stars?  Have Hollywood stylists decided that, if it’s an award–ANY award–they’ll try for it, and they’re all trying for this one?  Another definite contender.

    Are those pants or officially the worst jumpsuit ever seen in life? I love Rih Rih, but this aint it. I would probably love the “top” (I think the color is delightful on her) with a pair of skinny jeans and a nice pair of heels, but those pants are the worst thing ever. Check the 4th pic from the top.

    This is a beautiful girl who – like most little starlets and pop stars – often runs around pantless (or in tiny shorts or minis), so couldn’t she have left the pants at home this time around? She would have looked way better in a matching mini, and those HIDDY shoes should be burned along with the pants, though I hate to think what it would do to our ozone layer. She really worked HARD to make herself look this bad.  And yes, make it STOP with the nude shoes! TLo has spoken – are you clueless sheep – uh, I mean, stylists – out there listening? Although, I do think it would be wildly entertaining if ALL young pop stars channeled Dorothy Zbornak for their inspiration. Just imagine the looks that Rhianna, Katy Perry, J. Simp, etc, would all be coming up with! xoxol

    My great aunt, Bessie, had an outfit almost identical to this in the ’70s.  I remember her wearing it with her fried, orange, hair done up in a beehive, Mary Kay pink lipstick and “Jungle Gardenia” perfume.  When we were kids, we always had to go and “give Maw Maw a kiss” and got the whole effect from being right up in her face.  This outfit may have come from her closet.

    I think women of color are the only women who should be wearing “nude” “silly puddy” shoes, because the shoes don’t match their skin tone exactly. I really don’t mind the shoes at all.

    It’s definitely awful. What’s amazing is that it still looks better on her than it did on the model. This is a testament both to how great Rihanna’s body is and to how hard the designer failed. Also, the color is so, so much better on her. This s yet another example of how the fash industry’s obsession with pale girls is not only backward, but also just dumb. A fabulous, melanin-endowed girl can sell that (still terrible) ensemble muuuuuch better.

It wasn’t an attractive look then and it is not an attractive look now. And burning may be too kind for those horrid pants. Why do designers insist on creating clothing that appear to be hiding a dirty depends in their depths and make the unfortunate wearer look more like a waddling penguin than a svelte swan? And why would anyone buy them?
