Bajan musician Rihanna's love of fashion is almost as big as her voice. A protege of rapper Jay-Z, she released her first single aged just sixteen in 2005. Then she was a fresh-faced, wholesome teenager who lived in cropped tees, low-rise jeans and girly tumbled waves. Seems crazy now doesn't it? Since then she's not only established herself as one of the world's biggest artists, but a high fashion makeover has also catapulted her to style icon status. Just like BF Katy Perry, Ri-Ri loves to experiment with her image, constantly overhauling her hair (its currently blonde but not for long!) and her style. She's the ultimate fashion chameleon. Her fashion choices may span from the weird (shopping in Kerrin Rose baracuda blackout shades, stepping out in a completely see-through mesh sweater with no bra or spending an hour shopping for stockings in a Paris sex shop) to the wonderful (anything studded by Balmain), but she always wears the trends her way. In fact, Ri-Ri is so fashion-forward that she was rocking fetish and bold shoulders long before the masses, and even managed to make a white trouser suit wearable. No wonder her new BFs are Stella McCartney and Kate Moss. Fierce, fearless, feisty and fun on - and off - stage.
