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.

            • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

              As is Beyonce.

          • rajf

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

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      “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.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

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

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      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.

    • http://robot-heart.tumblr.com heartbot

      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.
