Rihanna Is Researching Fashion So She Can Wow You

She researched this jacket.

It takes a lot of work for Rihanna to look like Rihanna. Do you think decisions like elaborate bra-top jackets or suddenly turning blonde just happen overnight? No! It takes investigating, studying, and probably a lot of Googling. "In the past few months I’ve done a lot of research in the fashion world because I wanted to work with a bunch of designers that are kinda underground, people who aren’t the obvious," the singer told Grazia. "I found this guy Alexander Vauthier — his stuff is just so amazing, the colors are really beautiful and feminine but the structure is really strong, which I love." Besides scoping out Vauthier, she's recently worn Rick Owens, Eddie Borgo, Balmain, Gareth Pugh, Stéphane Rolland, and more. Of course, she also likes to sport nipple pasties, but it's all for fashion.
