A Journey Through Rihanna’s Fashion & Beauty Career

rihanna header

Lately we’ve been seeing our Bad Gal RiRi everywhere, and not just because of her new album and the ANTI World Tour. Along with dominating the music scene, she seems to be single-handedly taking over the fashion industry- and that makes us super happy.

In celebration of Rihanna’s collaboration with Manolo Blahnik that launched TODAY (meaning, if you’re trying to get a pair, you don’t have long), we put together a timeline of Rihanna’s ~adventure thus far~ into the fashion industry.

HEADLINES: Kermie Gets a Makeover, The Fashion World Shakes Up Its Roster, and Kris Jenner is a Dirty Cheater.

Kris Jenner was on Leno the other night when she admitted to carrying on an affair during her first marriage to Robert Kardashian. Kris says, “We had wild sex everywhere, all the time.” Okay first of all TMI; second isn’t it just so convenient that she drops this juicy secret while trying to pimp a book? (The Superficial)

Tamara Mellon, co-founder and face of the brand, and Joshua Shulman, the company’s CEO, are leaving Jimmy Choo by the end of the month. Shulman assures skeptics that their decisions to leave were made independently, however this seems a little fishy to me. Change is a coming! (Fashionista)

It seems Manolo Blahnik and Franca Sozzani share the same point of view concerning the John Galliano scandal. Blahnik tells Vogue UK he thinks Galliano was treated horrifically by Dior and alleges the company destroyed a talent. Those are fighting words Manolo, fighting words! (VogueUK)

Speaking of Dior, the guessing game continues concerning who will replace Galliano as reports state negotiations with front-runner Marc Jacobs have slowed. Further Pheobe Philo, Marc’s successor-to-be at Louis Vuitton, has announced she has no plans to leave Celine. Ah, the plot thickens. (The Fash Pack)

Modi Operandi is stealing its employees from all corners of the fashion industry. Among the recruits are Taylor Tomasi Hill, former style and accessories director of Marie Claire, and Roopal Patel, a longtime executive in the fashion offices of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. Sneaky, sneaky. (The New York Times)

Paris’ Printemps is spending Christmas with Karl Lagerfeld, rather LOTS of Karl Lagerfelds. Karl was given the privilege of orchestrating the store’s Rêve d’Evasion (that is, travel dream) Christmas windows, which feature mini Lagerfeld marionettes photographing, filming, sketching, and posing all over Paris. Why am I not surprised? (Style.com)

Miss Piggy isn’t the only muppet to invade the fashion world; her beau Kermitt is right there with her. The famous frog got a formal wear make over courtesy of Brooks Brothers. The retailer gifted Kermie his first new tuxedo since 1979. (The Cut)

HEADLINES: Manolos are Made Out of Cocaine in Colombia, Oprah & Jay-Z are Making Moves, and Katie Holmes Dresses Like Poop For a Reason.

Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz is publishing a 700 page book/tome; due out sometime next year. That’s just like designers eh? 700 effing pages! Only designer’s have egos big enough to support a project like this. (Lucky)

Drug dealers in Spainthought it would be a good idea to smuggle cocaine from Colombiato Spainin the form of a fake Manolo Blahnik pump. Yeah, because shipping an excess number of Manolos fromColombia toSpain isn’t suspicious? Use your head! (Huff Post Style)

Missoni wants to relive the wild success they experienced with Target except this time with Macy’s. See what I mean? Collaboration overload! Two collaborations per designer label per year and no more – leave us wanting more! I mean, how much zig-zag can one person wear? (Fashionista)

Jay-Z’s champagne ($300) is featured in Oprah’s Favourite Things this year. His book Decoded was featured on last year’s. These two have been in cahoots for a good while – it’s a brilliant business decision on both their parts. Side note: 3 Oprahs on the cover is 2 Oprahs too many. Is it big ego day today? (People)

Hugh Hefner says Linday Lohan’s Playboy spread is “very classy.” Sorry Grandpa but that’s an oxymoron. (Lifeline Live)

Forget the break-up – what in heaven’s name is she wearing? My girl Chelsea looks like she’s about to go scuba diving … with a camel toe! How did Jennifer Aniston allow this train wreck to happen? (Celebitchy)

Katie Holmes took out Suri for her daily bribery shopping trip yesterday, this time at American Girl, in some seriously hideous shoes. Does she dress herself like this on purpose? Is it a form of rebellion? Is she grasping at her last semblance of control? Too dramatic? Either way the shoes gots to go! (Popsugar)

HEADLINES: Betsey Confuses Keith for Johnny, Manolo Makes Shoes with a Side of Tilapia, and Jenna Lyon’s Mistress is Revealed!

So the Justin Bieber’s signature fringe is dead. I know; it’s a sad day. The man-child now prefers to style his hair straight-up (literally) with lots of gel; something reminiscent of the Jersey Shore guido’s coifs. Word is he suffered a severe case of whiplash from whipping his hair back and forth so often. (No, not really) (Hollywood Life)

You can now get your Manolo Blahnik’s with a side of tilapia. Apparently tilapia skin, besides eco-friendly, is a suitable leather replacement, when combined with raffia and cork. (Lucky)

Whoa, word travels fast! It’s been just 24 short hours and we already have a name in the Jenna Lyon is in love with a woman case. Apparently Ms. J. Crew has fallen for Courtney Crangi, the sister and business partner of jewellery designer Philip Crangi. I’m so into this story! Can’t wait to see how her camp responds! (The Cut)

This is too funny! At The Rum Diary premiere the other night Betsey Johnson reportedly confused Keith Richards for Johnny Depp. Good thing Johnny is such a fan of Keith’s and probably didn’t mind Betsey aging him like 20 years.  (Stylelist)

Surprise, surprise Ivanka Trump is the next ‘celebrity’ to launch a new clothing line! No please, contain your excitement! Check out the sketches here; if you care (but why would you?) (In Style)

Alice Temperley is collaborating with … not H&M or Target or Macy’s (thank god) but with Filofax. Word to the kiddies: before Blackeberries and iPhones and even before Palm Pilots there were Filofaxes. Yeah, good luck finding a market for those things! (Racked)

How do you make clothes out of butter? I have no idea, but I betcha Paula Deen does! She just announced to Jay Leno that she will be launching a clothing line in the near future and you know everything she makes starts with 2 pounds of butter! (New York Fashion)
