Rihanna presented her new pixie cut to the world in the most covetable outfit I’ve seen since she paired boxers with a denim skirt.
On May 6, the singer-actor-Fenty mogul was spotted entering the Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Los Angeles, California sporting new short hair. While Rihanna was not wearing a mask—welcome back, red lipstick—you can see one at the ready in her hand. (The CDC has announced that fully vaccinated citizens can begin venturing outside without face coverings.)
In 2021 alone, Rihanna has already rocked curtain bangs, long braids, and even a mullet. Now, she’s bringing back her Good Girl Gone Bad-era pixie cut, this time with baby bangs reminiscent of her 2012 VMAs look. “The only thing my mom didn’t let me do was dye my hair black and cut it short,” the megastar once told Sarah Paulson for Interview Magazine. “I’d wanted to do that since I was 14 and she was like, ‘No, not having it.’”
Well, look at her now:
Hair-envy aside, can we get some commotion for this outfit? From top-down, the Haus of Rihanna Instagram account reports that Rihanna rocked a $22,000 vintage tie-dye Dior jacket over a cropped shirt with chain accents by Hyein Seo, green and white leather pants by Chrome Hearts, and a pair of sold-out heels by The Attico.
White was the obvious theme for her accessories. Rihanna topped off the look with Versace sunglasses and a statement belt buckle from R13. As for jewelry, she layered a vintage necklace by Eleuteri with a yellow diamond lariat necklace from XIV KARATS and added a stunning ring by Elizabeth Gage.
Looking at this fit, I can’t help but think of a quote from Rihanna’s 2018 interview with Elle.com. “I am a savage, so everything I do is gonna be savage,” she said. “Savage is not about looking sexy, it’s not about the product—it’s all about you. It’s all about how you feel. You cannot fake sexy, what you need to do is find it. Clear all that negative shit out, get to your sexy, and own it—that shit is yours.”
