Musings: Style Icon – Rihanna

When researching Rihanna’s style for this post, I was fascinated by just how multi-faceted she is, as well as her style. From her hair, to her clothes, make up to tattoos, she is someone who embodies the definition of a risk taker. I don’t know if it’s because she has the physique of  a supermodel or just her overall attitude but to me she really manages to pull everything off with ease. Whether it be walking around NYC in the early hours of the morning in an oversized heart-shaped fur coat or a dress resembling an omelette to the Met Ball

Rihanna - not looking for a man

Some wisdom from RiRi as I focus in 2017…



Girly. Gothic. Ratchet. High fashion. Sports luxe. Red carpet extraordinaire…

Make me up…

Whenever I sit down in front of the mirror  to do my make-up I always wonder if I’ll be able to get my make up as perfect as RiRi’s when I’m done. She loves a bold lip (her cupid bow is perfect), a subtle contour and to emphasise those green eyes and with a Mac collection under her belt, I would too.

Hair you go…

I’ve never known someone to pull off pretty much every single hair colour. Ever. My favourite phase was ‘Red-anna’.

Tattoo me…

Whenever someone brings up the subject of tattoos there is always that negative Nancy who moans with something along the lines of ‘What about when you get old, your skin will sag’. Well duh. Unless we find the fountain of youth in the next few years, all our skin will be going down south. Thanks gravity. Anyway RiRi has set off a few tattoo trends over the past years, from the stars down her back, the Egyptian décolletage on her chest or the Drake shark on her ankle, it’s hard not to think about taking a trip to the tattoo parlour when looking at photos of Rihanna.

I’m just going to leave you with RiRi’s favourite accessory (and mine too)… the wine glass.

What do you think of Rihanna’s style? Love or loathe?

  3. […] Playing around with the fit of clothing is can sway opinion as some may prefer oversized and comfortable and others may prefer alright and tight. I think that you can do both as long as it fits you well. You could be wearing £6 jeans from Primark but if they don’t fit your shape well, what’s the point? I would get on YouTube, learn how to make simple alterations and take those jeans to the next level, aka something that fits well. Well fitting clothing can elevate your look and make a statement; if you’re after inspiration, one person that always gets it right is Rihanna.

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.
