From emerging artist to fearless fashionista, Rihanna's had more makeovers than most: See her red carpet history here...
When listing off fearless fashionistas, Rihanna is always at the top of our list.
Whether it be as the face of Dior, her eccentric stage get-ups or impeccable street style, there really is nothing Rihanna can’t wear.
From Pon De Replay to Work, Rihanna has made a name for herself in both music and fashion as one of the elite artists who can walk the line between the two. A luxury designer-fave, Rihanna can easily be spotted on the FROW at any fashion show, calling Christian Dior and Alexander Wang close friends and collaborators.
Even Manolo Blahnik is in awe of Rih Rih, working with the singer to create her own line of shoes – featuring all denim, of course.
And when Rihanna is the ultimate spokesperson, it’s no wonder the fashion world flocks to see her latest wears.

There only one person that could pull off a T-shirt, cap and diamonds. That’s Riri. Total babe.
Stepping out on the set of the Ocean’s 8 in New York City on the day of the US Presidential election, Rihanna made her political leanings known with a ‘I’m with her’ jumper that had a picture of Rihanna herself wearing a jumper with Hillary on it.
Most recently, Rihanna looked the picture of summer as she stepped out on the streets of NYC. Sporting a simple white strappy dress, with bold floral motifs, Rihanna also accessorised to the max, wearing her new Dior sunglasses range (love!) and beige Stella McCartney platforms.

From emerging artist to style maven, the Work singer has had more makeovers than most… See her red carpet history here.
Making her first public appearance since February’s reported assault at the Costume Institute Gala, Rihanna ensured she made a statement with an ensemble we can only describe as, well, unusual! She’s working the season’s bold shoulder trend with her dramatic Dolce & Gabbana tux, for a look that screamed, ‘I’m back!’ She certainly caught our attention! (5 May 2009)
Believe it or not, this is actually one of Rihanna’s more low-key looks of late. The fashion-forward star rocked three top trends while shopping at New York’s Intermix yesterday: corsets, ripped jeans, and faux snakeskin-effect heels. It’s glamorous daytime dressing and we like it. (7 May 2009)
Songstress Rihanna played the sci-fi role in a futuristic, bold-shouldered top and sculptural skirt as she joined Kylie Minogue at last night’s DKMS 2009 Annual Gala in aid of leukaemia research in NY. She finished off her robotic look with fearsome-looking buckle-up boots. Funky, but a little frightening? (8 May 2009)
After showcasing a run of out-there, attention-grabbing outfits this week, Rihanna seemed to have finally hit the nail on the head in Manhattan yesterday with her snakeskin ruffled vest, cropped cream trousers and gorgeous metallic ankle-strap sandals, all from the Gucci spring 2009 collection. (8 May 2009)
What do we have here? A fantastic, innovative combination of some of summer’s top trends. The bold-shouldered jacket, the statement necklace, the mini and, saving the best ’til last, the polka-dot peep-toes so cute! Yep, we definitely approve of this sexy outfit, which Rihanna wore to the launch of the Carol’s Daughter Back Room Hand and Foot Spa in New York. (17 June 2009)
Does Rihanna ever have a dress-down moment? If yes, then we’re yet to see it. The singer indulged in a spot of shopping yesterday, and rocked a leather panelled asymmetric dress, with floral panels, dark shades and stacked up the gems. She did give her feet a break though from those towering heels, slipping into some fringed flats. (12 August 2009)
Winning the prize for wackiest get-up of the night, Rihanna arrived at the Intermix party for Fashion’s Night Out in studded wrap-around shades. Quite how she sees is beyond us, but hey, the girl deserves kudos for her dedication to statement style! (11 September 2009)
Wow. Our jaws hit the floor when we first clapped eyes on this snap of Rihanna. The Barbados-born beauty was being honoured with the Woman of the Year award at a magazine bash in NY, and arrived donning this incredible ivory pleated Stephane Rolland gown. Amaze. (10 November 2009)
Wow! Rihanna was the belle of the ball at an awards dinner in New York, sweeping in wearing a stunning Jasmine di Milo floor-skimming gown, with daring thigh-high split. Elegant, yet sexy, the singer was the picture of contemporary elegance. (11 November 2009)
It came as little surprise that the ever fashion-forward Rihanna completely stole the show on the American Music Awards red carpet. All eyes were on the stylish singer when she arrived in this structured monochrome Marchesa creation, which was covered in floral laser cut-outs. We just don’t quite know what to make of it! (23 November 2009)
Rihanna was at her bold-shouldered best for an appearance on a US television show. The stylish songstress teamed her slouchy hareem pants with black courts and a fab white power-shouldered blazer. (24 November 2009)
Rihanna certainly knows how to make an entrance, and she did so in high-impact style at the NY launch party for her new album, Rated R. The diva rocked up in this gold spiked minidress by noir jewelry for The Blonds, and matching heels. (26 November 2009)
