Step and Repeat: Rihanna at the Battleship Premiere, Japan

Rihanna in Emilio Pucci

Oh Rihanna, you rebel you. How I enjoy your ever changing hairstyles and don't give a *insert the blank here* attitude. Good on you for attempting the pant suit trend sweeping the runways these days. But dear, of all people, you should know that with risks come major rewards or major failures. This ensemble leans more towards a major failure I believe.

Listen, I am all for pants on the red carpet, but a well fitted suit and pajama pants are entirely different creatures. The color is lovely on her skin tone, and the brocade is fantastically on trend. However, the fit of suit is absolutely not flattering. Here is a woman that has one of the best bodies in the business, and you wouldn't be able to tell under that mess of fabric around her mid section. The shoes are essentially non-existent, a black pump would have been a bolder choice, adding punctuation to the look. She is pulling a female Hugh Hefner with this outfit, and though it's an interesting idea, the greatness got lost in execution.

A slimmer fit, would have done wonders, taking it out of the bedroom onto the red(blue) carpet. This picture shows the possibility of what it could be, but head on the outfit is a downright mess.
Lovely, eye catching jewelry she has. I applaud the fact that she went for larger pieces, they add to the inverted va va voom look she was going for. Though the fabric is beautiful, it is obviously not meant to be worn for a lengthy amount of time. Hello wrinkles.

In the end, she accomplished her goal and stood out from the crowd of beautiful people. I am positive this look will be polarizing, you'll either love it or hate it.

Guess which side I'm on.
