    • deelup

      I think I made an outfit like this for my Barbie once by cutting up an actual sweater. Luckily Barbie didn’t have nipples.

      • madscntst

        Looking at these pictures, it’s fairly obvious that Rihanna does have nipples…pert ones, in fact. Must have been cool that day.

        • psykins

          Well, she’s also got nipple piercings, so that helps I’m sure.

          • Ginmaru

            Actually I was wondering if she had Badger clips under there.

    • clatie

      I am in the middle of growing out my hair and I am officially jealous of those of us who can slap on a wig and be all. like, no big deal. She looks great (although I personally think it looks itchy to wear).

      • Sobaika

        For growing out your hair: Are you taking biotin or fish oil supplements? I also suggest MSM pills.

        • clatie

          I’m growing it out from a very short pixie, so, yes I am taking a few things. Trying to get to a chin length bob. It’s going to take a while. Sigh.

          • Lauren

            It will go faster than you think! I have been growing mine for 1 and a half years now, from a mohawk and it’s almost to my shoulders. Biotin is awesome!

            • clatie

              wow! that’s impressive! I’m off to buy some. Thank you so much – :-)

            • Sarah

              Oh, shit, me too! I am excited to see if I can get my hair longer than shoulder length, where it seems to linger.

            • Lauren

              Same boat. I never get it past my shoulders. I always chop it!

            • LittleMascara

              I swear my hair grows 1/2 inch a month with Biotin.

          • fursa_saida

            Mine went from pixie to past my shoulders in two years (without any supplements), so yeah, it won’t be as long as you think! (Time, I mean, not hair.)

        • Qitkat

          I’ve been taking fish oil, just for all its good benefits, but maybe will add the other things too. My hair is so thinning. Speaking of wigs, I found myself entranced by HSN and Iman’s wig collection recently. They were hawking those things as if they are worth solid gold. They did look pretty cute, but it was hard to buy into that they are better than $3000 handmade wigs at around $2-300.

          By the way, if I miss you in the Lounge, congrats on your new dream job and have an awesome time in Greece! Very exciting.

          • Sobaika

            Thank you!!

          • clatie

            I am now down the rabbit hole with Iman wigs on the website. I would never have the je ne sais quoi to hold my head up high and go anywhere in one. But they sure look like fun to play with!

      • sugarkane105

        I wish wigs would come back in style for everyone. The amount of time I have to spend drying and styling my hair – sometimes, I think throwing on a wig would be so much faster.

        • clatie

          yes! and you could be cher one day and louise brooks the next. options.

    • Latin Buddy

      This is really late 90s Romy and Michelle High School Reunion. Maybe she had some sort of business woman special?

      • sugarkane105

        Yes! Her AND her friend. I wonder if they argue over who’s the cuter one.

      • @Biting Panda

        That made me giggle. Xoxo.

      • Sarah

        OH! I love that movie. I was looking for it on Netflix yesterday. They don’t have it! Poo.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          I’m the Mary! You’re the Rhoda!

        • Kent Roby

          Netflix streaming sucks; they don’t have Drop Dead Gorgeous either.

          • Sarah

            I’ve got that one on DVD! I’m not mad at Netflix – they have a ton of stuff, but it’s better for browsing. If you have something specific in mind, though, yeah, they might not have it.

          • AnaRoW

            Both are available on Amazon Prime if you have it.

            • Kent Roby

              Great, thanks, will check it out. I bought/downloaded Drop Dead Gorgeous on iTunes, only to discover that it was a different movie w the same name

      • livesarah

        Yeah I had almost this exact outfit, with a slightly more flared skirt, in pastel pink and pastel blue (really good sale price!) in 1996. Lol.

    • marlie

      I don’t particularly like this outfit, but my first thought was “Jessica Biel, THIS is how you do minimalist without looking boring.”

      That clutch is really cute, though.

      • @Biting Panda

        If Oatbiel wore this, I’d fall out of my chair. One must BE sex to werq this.

        • demidaemon

          Well, it’s a color, so she’d probably get hives just from looking at it.

        • MarissaLG

          Oatbiel! I die.

    • MilaXX

      Cute look but the shoes actually look a size too small for a change.

    • ChiKat67

      Seriously, what is with her need to let everyone know just how chilly it is where ever she goes? Don’t wear a bra if you have gravity-defying girls, but AT LEAST invest in some fun daisy petals and COVER THAT SHIT UP!

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        I think it’s the friction, not the temperature.

        • eringorock

          Or the fact that her nipple is pierced.

          • Gatto Nero

            Yeowch, to all of it.

        • Constant Reader

          It’s been really cold in the northeastern US for the past few days. Like wool-sweater-plus-coat cold. Low 40s and rainy. I can’t imagine that she isn’t freezing.

      • Sarah

        Aw. Is she supposed to be inhuman? Sometimes that just happens.

        • what not

          Yeah, I keep mine covered to avoid similar comments, but I wish we could just accept that people have nipples and move on.

      • alyce1213

        It’s a nipple ring we’re seeing, and she clearly has no interest in covering it up. Quite the contrary.

        • SugarSnap108

          The words “nipple ring” will always cause me physical pain, it seems.

          • The Versatile Chef

            I’m clutching the girls in distress just reading the words “nipple ring”

      • Luzia

        but why? i legit don’t understand why outline of something so obviously natural is considered not kosher
        it’s only society told us — “woman, be ashamed of your boobs! no jiggles, no nipples!”. how about no? i love rihanna for it. men have no problems with their nipples

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

          It’s also, in part, that erect nipples are a sign of sexual arousal and some people like to keep that stuff private.

          • Luzia

            some people always have hard nipples, it’s also a sign that you might be cold, and so is for men. WHY it’s normal for men to show that part of their anatomy, but women should be shamed for it and laughed about ut? sounds like bullshit to me

            • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

              Because every aspect of women’s bodies and behaviours is scrutinised and objectified in a way that men’s bodies are not. Nipples are an end point (boom tish); a pretty minor battle in the war.

            • Luzia

              yeah, well, thanks, i understand that.
              i’m just saying it’s bullshit and double standard. and we should change it right now. Free boobs campaign starring Rihanna

            • Ginmaru

              Thanks for coming and remember to tip your waitress! Ba Da Boom!

            • holla

              I would love to see some man nipples once in a while, like from Joe “muscle Jesus” Manganiello.

            • Kent Roby

              It’s total bullshit; preach!

            • AnaRoW

              Some of us just have a hard time covering them up. It’s not easy finding padded plus size bras. Also I’ve found that most nipple scrutinizing is done by other women.

          • Kent Roby

            It’s my understanding that red lipstick originated as a symbol of sexual arousal.

            • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

              That seems to be a pretty persistent myth.

            • Beardslee

              I am very intrigued by the data that show that sales of red lipstick goes up in bad times. The Depression, WWII, and other times too. Didn’t folks call it “the red badge of courage” during WWII?

            • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

              Red lipstick is very cheering! Hemlines go down and lips get redder.

              But it isn’t because people are reminded of aroused labia…

      • Kent Roby

        I’m pro-nip; I’ve never understood the obsession to pretend that no one has them.

        • Alloy Jane

          I don’t see the big deal either. But I’m one of those people that is not perturbed by public breast feeding, aaaand I also spent part of my 20s accidentally exposing myself, so my standards for propriety are different.

    • sugarkane105

      It’s so fuzzy, I just want to touch it. But then I’d get arrested for assault.

    • MilaXX

      Only Rhi Rhi would have an assistant or whoever the lady in plaid is, who’s dressed half naked just like her.

      • Stella Zawistowski

        Somehow, lady in plaid is managing to make a nipped-waist version of one of Mr. Rogers’s sportcoats look slammin’. I also want her shoes.

        • Beardslee

          Yeah, she looks GREAT.

      • R.A.

        That’s her best friend Michelle Forde :) they’re attached at the hip.

        • Kent Roby

          They could not be a prettier or more stylish couple of friends.

      • Wendi126

        Be us! Do us!

    • NMMagpie

      Terrific. Love the bag!

    • ashtangajunkie

      Oooh, I love Rihanna. Head-turning and fierce. Her legs are KILLA.

    • http://myriameron.blogspot.com/ Heron

      I am having a legit hard time orienting myself on her belly. Is that strip just above or below her belly button? She and I have VERY different rise/torso configurations.

      • sugarkane105

        Looks above to me. I think we’re seeing a tiny peek of the top of her bellybutton in the fourth pic.

      • Gatto Nero

        That strip of midriff is north of her navel.

    • Sarah

      She is filling out that sweater like the wet dream of every hetero middle school boy. I like the model’s hair a lot, I and it kinda makes me wish Rhi’s hair was up or not wiggy or whatever.

      • marlie

        See, I hate the model’s hair. Too “late 1990s” for me.

        • Sarah

          I can see that. I was just thinking more in the range of “funky updo” in general, but now that you’ve said that, I’m getting some Spice Girls realness out of it.

          • demidaemon

            I think it’s kind of an in style for Japanese fashion (I could be wrong), so it makes sense, considering the designer.

    • susan6

      It looks fabulous, but led to a bit of a puzzle for me. One the one hand…that outfit’s fabric is probably really itchy….so I guess it’s lined. (Takes a closer look) Hmmm….no. It’s not lined. And apparently it’s chilly.

      But it does look great.

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      Does Alyssa Milano know that Prada has painted her face on a bag?

      • ashtangajunkie

        Holy shit – I hadn’t noticed that, but excellent call!

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        I thought Judy Garland, myself.

      • SugarSnap108

        Damn, I liked that bag till I read this. But I refuse to lug Alyssa Milano around town with me.

      • Imasewsure

        Hopefully Alyssa gets a few pennies from every purchase… that is totally her face!

    • lunchcoma

      Adorable. Chilly as hell, but adorable.

    • Nancer

      Cute bag!

    • Little_Olive

      The top really suits her. The rest… I’m having trouble getting behind the idea of fuzzy-wooly items paired with bare legs and sandals.

    • Kitten Mittons

      Love this. Love her. Love her friend. Killing it.

      • Hetha Innis

        Yeah, Loving her friends outfit as much if not more.

        • quiltrx

          Yes! If not for overly-visible underboob, her friend is rocking it.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      I’m boycotting angora at the moment, but this is really cute.

      • Sarah

        Because of the bunninators?

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

          Yes. There is some ethical and sustainable angora, but not at my price point!

          • Sarah

            Yeah. I used to feed an angora bunny for a lady when she’d go out of town – she just combed him gently and used the hair that fell off to spin & knit. That seems like the ONLY way to do it.

    • Danielle

      My kingdom for a pair of breast petals!

      • holla

        My kingdom for breasts that perky again!

        • Danielle


    • KingCrazy

      Love her and her outfits usually, but I’m not crazy about this. At all.

      • Vtg Fashion Library

        Thank you! It reads to me as totally hootchie. Do. Not. Like.

    • KinoEye

      Uh… is anyone else puzzled and a little disturbed by what appear to be nipples?

      I glean from the comments that they are nipple rings. In that case, carry on, though it seems it would be terrifically uncomfortable under angora.

      Once again, loving it, and truly something only she could pull off. And her assistant is fierce, too. As it should be.

    • Annmarie Kane


    • @Biting Panda

      Yaaaassss. Fuck yes.

    • Gatto Nero

      That bag is *perfect* for this look.

    • Mothra

      That is far more fetching on her than on the model. A+

      • Sarah

        That model looks like she’s doing the ol’ “That skirt had better be longer than your fingertips, missy, or you’re going home” smirk.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Of course she looks fantastic as always. But I question the logic of making skimpy clothes out of sweater material…makes no sense.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      I ALSO have something in common with RiRi. We both have fuzzy nipples, it would appear. Celebrities — they’re just like me!

    • LeelaST

      All I can say is “street wear.”

    • Luzia

      i think Rihanna hairline really suffered from years of weaves and extensions. it’s very far in her forehead

    • Kelly

      Hate the nipples. But I know where she is! That restaurant and playground are near my partner’s apartment.

    • boweryboy

      I like the shoes and the bag. That’s all. I hate the tattoo. It looks like her hand is rotting from sort of skin disease.

      • Alloy Jane

        I’m not particularly fond of the tattoo (way too busy) but now I’m going to think of her as Lady Dumbledore and that she tried on Beyonce’s cursed ring and now her hand is dead.

    • LadyVimes

      I liked her last street style better, honestly. I just can’t give fuzzy outfits a Werq.

    • ScarlettHarlot

      I’d like a post on her friend/assistant’s outfit. It’s so Living Single.

      • madge

        in a 90s kinda world, i’m glad i got my girls!

        • ScarlettHarlot

          Keep ya head up, what!

    • Tracey Magyar

      Love the color. But, it looks ITCHY! Like those fuzzy sweaters with the sequins everyone wore in the late 80’s. ITCHY!

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      Everything is Rihanna’s color.

    • Susan Velazquez

      The model in the pic looks so annoyed with the Princess Leia buns though, it made me laugh. Look at our girl, Rihanna. Didn’t think she could be a sweater girl but there she is. My only quip is that her nipple piercings make her chest look lumpy. She should have worn a better bra.

    • Miss wks

      purse’s lips and Rihanna’s toe polish…LOVE it.

    • Lisalady161

      My love for everything about her but her music grows each time you feature her, uncles.

    • macwell

      She looks ‘4 snaps in a double Z formation’ Spring hot here. She loves her body and it totally shows here. Love her for that (yodeling mess of a voice notwithstanding)….;)

    • Jacob Bowen

      I will compliment ANY painted bag that is not Kim K’s UGLY AS FUCK painted Birkin.

    • a_liking

      how do I become as hot as Rihanna? is that so much to ask?

    • Imasewsure

      That awful hand tattoo isn’t permanent, is it? Hoping it’s just dark henna….

      • Luzia

        it is tattoo. Rihanna, stahp! your body and skin is perfection

    • demidaemon

      It works on Rihanna, but, on anyone else (and I’m still leaning toward the reaction here), it makes me think, “STASRLET OR STREETWALKER?” with my sign holding the latter.

    • Daisy Walker

      I don’t get it. The whole outfit is too small and too tight and anyone else wearing it would’ve been read to filth about it. Cute bag, though.

    • quiltrx

      I have a few critiques…first of all, is that a NIPPLE RING making that bizarre shape under the top? That’s not something I want to see.
      Also, it looks like her wig/weave/whatever is poorly placed with her hairline.
      And finally…ED WOOD REALNESS. Cannot unsee.

      • deech_sea

        How funny! My first thought was Ed Wood as well. :D

      • conniemd

        Looks like a nipple ring to me. I can appreciate her beauty, but the feminist in me just can’t with her whole my body is sex object to exploit wardrobe.

    • annrr

      Love it and her bestie’s coat dress too

    • Janice Bartels

      It is totally her… Or the younger sister in Coming to America. Love the bag.

    • malarson2

      I could totally go for a fuzzy nipple right now. Oh…wait, I meant a fuzzy NAVEL. Looks like Rihanna got mixed up just like I did.

    • Edie Rose

      This outfit looks horribly itchy.

    • Fannie Wolston

      Same shoes as Reese? And how awkward is it to dine in a fuzzy mini skirt / crop top? and her assistant is wearing a jacket with no pants and no bra, okay so the plaid is a mini dress, but her decolletage on display should be lifted not sagging, that ain’t appetizing at all.

    • decormaven

      Beautiful color on her. She’s got the bod for this outfit, and is working it well.

    • MarissaLG

      Yes! Love this. VERY Cher Horowitz.

    • Kent Roby

      As much as I hate this collection of Prada bags, Ri is deploying it perfectly here. Katy Perry would likely wear this purse with full-on Frieda Kahlo drag.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I really love this. Even the white naked shoes.

    • elzatelzabelz

      A WERQ? I can’t support that. It’s all too short, which I know is her “thing”, but it is still a tacky thing.

    • MM4321

      T&O, when you say “street style,” may I assume that’s a euphemism for “streetWALKER style?”

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      I know that I’m supposed to admire her street style, but every time, there’s one tacky element that just puts me off anything she wears. I do love that purse, though.

    • kategs


    • Andrea Lentz

      I love this and wish my tummy would tone itself so i could wear all those cute crops that are popular now!

    • NinjaCate

      Hate the hair. Love everything else.

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

      This outfit makes me think there should be a sequel to Clueless that Rihanna stars in. As Dionne’s daughter – I can see it now.

    • livesarah

      Can’t get past that ratty mane. She is so stunning, but she’d even look better bald than with that current disaster.

    • Man Dala

      She looks amazing when she goes for the ‘natural beauty’ look. And I prefer her with that long hair, like the one she sports in the video with Shakira.

    • Mousentrude

      I don’t like the hem of the jumper. I had to look twice to check it was intentionally wavy because at first glance it just looked like it had stretched in the wash.

    • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com cheekypinky

      Cher and Dionne would be so proud.
