Rihanna's personal style has evolved drastically from her "Pon de Replay" days. As she's ascended into R&B-slash-pop stardom, the entertainer cultivated her own look by making some daring sartorial choices (like shaving off the sides of her hair or showing her nipples) to finally rest comfortably in her fashion icon throne, improbably dressed in sweatpants and heels. Her appreciation for casual streetwear — whether that means fierce haircuts, unabashed use of color, loud print-mixing, or Timberland boots — has trickled down to the streets and, especially, to her fans. The Cut's Bek Andersen visited the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night, before RiRi's final show in New York, snapping some of the most-inspired looks on the young and diverse crowd. Click through to see women rocking partially shaven hair, bright-pink heeled combat boots, studded leggings, multicolored Jeremy Scott x Adidas sneakers, and more. Sadly, no umbrellas.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
