Rihanna in Tom Ford in Poland

Posted on July 08, 2013

Oh, Ri. We don’t know how you do it.


Rihanna seen arriving at her hotel in Gdansk, Poland wearing Tom Ford boots.

Tom Ford Fall 2013 Collection

Somehow, you always look exactly like someone who just arrived here from 1988. Every time. No matter what you’re wearing.

    I can live with it all…except that hair.

    • mrspotts66

      agreed. i have yet to see hair i like on her, be it natural or a wig.

      and i know she’s got the $$ for a nice wig or two.

  • omg_dora

    I appreciate that her vulva is hidden from view.

    That’s all I ask from her right now.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      isn’t “vulva” plural?

      • Paigealicious


      • omg_dora

        I’m pretty sure Rihanna only has the one. 😛

        well, then i have more than nature intended. lmvo.

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    I’m ok with this, but only in Rihanna, no one else (ejem, miley)

    • flamingoNW

      Yeah, Miley would be tempted wouldn’t she? Now that you bring it up, Miley really is a Rihanna wanna-be, isn’t she? But no…

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        she’s trying so hard, from the neck up to be Pink and from the neck down to be Rihanna

    • MilaXX

      Except Miley would wear the boots & the top with no pants.

  • flamingoNW

    …..those are boots? Uhh. First reaction was that I wanted the pants, but the boot thing? Mmm. No. Very Rihanna, though. One of the few people who can work the belly top.

    • rajf

      Not only are they boots, they are godawful OPEN-TOED BOOTS!

      • TropiCarla

        My Mom: “I just don’t understand. Are her feet HOT? Or are they COLD?”

        Made me LMAO when she first said it a few years ago when peep-toed boots were becoming a thing.

  • thecitysleeps

    I like this.

  • crash1212

    She’s rockin’ this look. And most parts are covered. Win.

  • alyce1213

    The outfit is rather interesting and very Rihanna, but I just can’t, CAN NOT get past that hair. It makes me a little nauseous.

  • Rand Ortega

    Keith Haring & Boy George both called…

  • MilaXX

    It’s a look.

    • Rand Ortega

      Mila, darling, to quote 1 of my favorite movies, “You just said a cotton pickin’ mouthful”.

  • understateddiva

    why are there tiny gold strands adorning her midriff? Is tummy jewelry happening now?

    • majorbedhead

      Body chains. They’re tacky as hell.

      • barbarienne

        What are they attached to? Are they hanging from her nipple ring?

        • majorbedhead

          I think they loop around the neck, go between the boobs, where they join up, then loop around the waist. Miley Cyrus is a big fan of them, too.

        • rajf

          If they aren’t, I’m sure they’re intended to give that impression.

  • “Oh, you prude bitches want me to cover up? Do you? I’ll cover up. I’ll wear ALL THE SWIRLY THINGS.”

  • nannypoo

    I like it for her, but only for her. I’m not loving the hair, but doesn’t she just have the cutest face? And the handler looks pretty hot, too.

  • ashtangajunkie

    It’s crazy, which means it’s perfect for Rihanna. I’m always mesmerized by her beautiful, glowing skin. Crazy pants or no pants, she really is a beauty.

  • BarniClaw

    Tron boots.

  • Eric J.

    In a recent William Gibson book, there was a plot point about a shirt with a crazy design that acted as a QR code, and made it’s wearer invisible to CCTV cameras, thanks to a backdoor in the camera software. This is what I imagine that looked like.

  • JasmineAM

    I LOVE THIS OUTFIT, BUT GIRL, THAT HAIR. You have toooooo much $$$ to have your hair look that shit.

    • I can only assume she *paid* toooooo much $$$ to have her hair look like that shit.

  • I miss the all-girl hip hop/R&B groups/duos of the 90s. If we have to have the fashion back, can we get more of the music back too? I miss TLC (the group, not the LCD tv channel).
    ETA: Also I love the Tom Ford runway look and would wear it in a heartbeat.

    • Vanja

      I miss them too. See if you can find ” Ladies of Rap – Hip Hop Legends” on YouTube, I think you’ll like that as well.

  • bellafigura1

    I don’t even know what’s going on here, but her stoner smile saves the day. She’s like a walking sixties movie drug montage. So groovy.

  • macwell

    I just read a post that showed video of her stumbling down drrrrruuunnnkkkk, and escorted out of this same Polish event. Oh RiRi….:(

  • frannyprof

    I have the urge to get out my fabric markers and color in her top and skirt (?)

  • demidaemon

    This is a bit epilepsy inducing for me. Way too much pattern.

  • Airkisses

    bicycle boobs

    • MoHub

      I was thinking pince-nez—so her boobs could see better—but bicycle works for that pattern as well.

  • makeityourself

    1988 looks great on her. Love the hair here, but hated it with the Chanel cardigan.

  • Anniebet

    Good god… she’s nearly covered up. In god awful looking clothes, but nearly covered.

    I hate that hair with a red hot passion.

  • j_anson

    I… kind of like this. I’m sorry, I guess?

    • TAGinMO

      Right? Against all reason, I kind of love it.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    The blog commentary is spot on – that looks like a pattern both my parents would wear in 1988 (also when they still lived in Poland.)

  • Introspective

    i live for this. especially the pic that had her walking off a plane in this getup. it looked like she was landing on earth from the “future” as portrayed in a 1988 flick that now has a hipster cult following.

  • Jeremiah Capacillo

    Can’t unsee the tit pattern on the sweater.

    • TheDivineMissAnn

      Affectionately known as bulls eye breasts.

    • GorgeousThings

      I call them Boob Bullseyes.

  • LaSylphide

    Now THIS is Rihanna. Chanel she is not.

  • bertkeeter

    Actually works!

  • MoHub

    Is it my failing eyesight, or is Ri-Ri wearing an entirely different print from the runway model?

  • Coleen

    I want to attack her outfit with some markers. She looks like one of those stained-glass coloring books you can buy in Michael’s by the check-out.

  • I love this!

  • decormaven

    Makes me wish for some colored markers.

  • formerlyAnon

    I wonder how old she’s going to be before my over-riding thought when I see her in photos, no matter what she’s wearing and how slammin’ or silly her hair/jewelry/shoes are is not “God she’s SO pretty.”

  • marlie

    This looks way better on RiRi than it does on the model, but that’s not saying much.

  • Vanja

    *having a flashback to the 80’s, singing to myself*

    “Who’s that gigolo on the street

    With his hands in his pockets and his crocodile feet

    Hanging off the curb, looking all disturbed”

    Also, that’s a lot of print.

  • Lesley

    1980’s look good on her. i’m just not loving the hair. i liked it brunette and longer.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    it’s true. but … damn. the ’80s were FUN.

  • Thundar99

    And we LUV that!

  • Cecilie

    Anyone that know who designed the pants and the “top”? 🙂

  • akprincess72

    I can never understand the belly chain thing, just tacky.

  • lilazander

    Another American star disrespecting my country, except Bey.
