Rihanna made the front page of yahoo this morning. Y’all know what that means right? She did something a little odd to the eyes of mainstream fashion and beauty society and of course it was on purpose. Rihanna wore bantu knots to the Iheart radio awards, as a matter of fact they are calling it her ‘goth look’, because of the green lippy and the all black everything ensemble. Here is what the Yahoo Insider had to say:
Rihanna has the most talked-about look of the night, with many comparing her to “Orange Is the New Black” character Crazy Eyes. However, it’s a very old-school look that celebrities have actually worn in the past.
Mel B from Spice Girls rocked the small knots in her 1997 film, “Spice World,” and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes from the ’90s band TLC wore the same style on various occasions, including the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. And more recently, Gwen Stefani has also been spotted wearing the same hairstyle.
OH, thank goodness for Mel B and Gwen Stefani or they would have thought Rihanna straight lost her mind! Rihanna knew she would have been on the stage a lot, she was very aware that she was nominated for countless awards because she was constantly talking about it on social media.
Here is what celebrity stylist Daniel Musto had to say about the singers style:
Rihanna should have followed the ‘take one thing off before you leave the house’ rule and taken off 2 instead.
Here’s the thing, personally the look isn’t for me, but then again I am no rockstar. I bet if Daniel Musto was on her payroll he would be singing another tune, we bet he would twist those knots like he was a black girl born and raised in Barbados. Personally, her look was not for me, but I understand it, and as usual she knows how to push the envelope with mainstream media, and it is totally funny!
What do you ladies think?
