Sassy Rihanna donned this classy ensemble during her
runway-show tour stop in the Netherlands last night. Having secured the title of Barbados’ Next Top Model a few years back, the 22 year old is renown most for her ‘originale’ fashion sense. However, judging by these two shots, it appears ol’ RiRi and her team have been studying a certain Grace Jones. See for yourself…
Granted many artists draw inspiration from figures of old (see: Beyonce), it’s interesting to point out that the truly ‘original’ acts put their own unique spin on it (again, see, Beyonce) or bring something entirely new to the table (see: Lady GaGa). One can only hope Ms Fenty was trying to give a nod to Jones, as opposed swagger-jack her image for a younger and likely unaware audience.
Randomness: I met Grace Jones about 2 years ago. One word… bonkers! Well, actually another too…’diva!’.
