Musings: Rihanna gets…Complex

Some may say these photos draw the line between sexy and pratically pornographic, but I think they’re absolutely amazing. If you’ve got it, flaunt it.

Celebrating her seven albums, Rihanna did a modern twist on her younger days. I can’t actually believe she’s only 24 and had so much music, she really needs to take a rest. But maybe that is why she has been so successful, she is constantly doing something from music to movies to performing, constantly in the spotlight.

On talking about her love for Instagram, she said that:

“It’s narcissistic, but whatever—everyone does it. I’m capturing personality… Everybody has their thing they like or don’t like to see. It’s all in your head. That’s why people take their own pictures, because it’s difficult for someone else to capture what you seek.

Get a good light. Get a good angle on what’s working for you that day. If it’s boobs, make sure you hit that. If it’s face, make sure it’s fierce.”

What can I say, she really does love herself doesn’t she? Who wouldn’t if you were Rihanna?

Taking some inspiration from the Complex covers, I came up with a few outfits inspired by the albums over the years that are a little more wearable…


What do you think of the shoot? Too much or not enough?

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
