Rihanna in Alexander Wang

Posted on August 28, 2012

We realize this is a ludicrous thing to say about someone like Rihanna, but this outfit feels like it’s trying too hard.


Rihanna leaves Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica in top and pants by Alexander Wang accessorized with a Lanvin necklace, a Prada bag, and Tom Ford shoes.

Lanvin Cameo Necklace

Tom Ford Leather Sandal

It’s like every piece is a statement piece; the tight leather top (which really isn’t all that flattering), the baggy pants, the white bag, the cameo, and the Tom Ford sandals. You can’t have that many statements in one outfit. It’s the fashion equivalent of gibberish. We think what happened here is someone decided the top and the pants weren’t working (because they’re not), but instead of rethinking the pieces they just threw a lot of aggressive accessories on top of them. It’s the Edina Monsoon approach to styling, and it NEVER works.
