From that naked dress to stealing Coachella’s thunder with an embellished glitter bodysuit, Rihanna can literally do no wrong when it comes to fashion.
To honour our favourite island queen on her birthday, we’ve rounded up her 10 most iconic fashion moments.
1. The “naked” dress
Probably RiRi’s most iconic look literally ever, RiRi wore this transparent beaded dress to the CDFA Awards in 2014, and went on to pick up the Style Icon award presented by none other than Anna Wintour herself.
She accessorised the gown with a white fur stole, a smoky eye, matching embellished gloves and a 20’s flapper girl style turban.
2. The Coachella glitter bodysuit
Rihanna nearly broke Instagram when she casually turned up to Coachella in this full glitter Gucci bodysuit last summer. She paired it with black platform boots, denim shorts and a pair of studded black sunglasses.
3. The head-to-toe pink outfit
She’s the last person to shy away from a dull outfit, and this one is right at the top of our all-time favourite ever RiRi looks. She stepped out in the pink jumpsuit (complete with stirrup pants, of course) and heels for an appearance on Good Morning America in 2015, and accessorised the look with a fluffy pink scarf.
4. The red floor-length dress
Rih sent Twitter into actual meltdown when she stepped out in this Giambattisa Valli Couture gown at the London premiere of Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets.
5. The outfit that started the off-shoulder trend
In case you didn’t already know, Rih’s pretty incredible at setting trends, and off-the-shoulder silhouettes is one that she can definitely claim that she’s brought back. She was spotted in this double denim outfit last summer when she went partying in London with Justin Bieber. As you do.
6. The dress that shut down the Met Gala
Yep, that one. Probably one of Rih’s most unforgettable looks, she totally shut down the 2017 Met Gala when she turned up in this Comme Des Garcons dress and lace-up strappy red sandals.
7. Every Carnival outfit she’s ever worn, ever
Every year, Rihanna heads down to her Barbadian island to celebrate Crop Over festival. Last year, she twerked and danced and drank her way through the streets of Barbados looking like the world’s sexiest peacock, and this is why she’s the baddest on the planet.
8. The larger-than-life pink coat
That time she took the puffer coat trend to a WHOLE new level. Bringing truth to the phrase “it’s ugly until Rihanna decides it’s not”, Rih wore the Ella Boucht puffer jacket literally phresh off the runway while out and about in Paris.
9. The waist-high orange boots
She wore a ridiculous pair of Vetements thigh-high orange boots to perform at the 7th annual OVO fest, and obviously she totally pulled them off.
10. The all-pink jumpsuit
For a girls’ night out in New York with her best friends, Rihanna wore our favourite colour and did it totally oversized in this Rosie Assoulin jumpsuit complete with flared pants.
