Not only is Rihanna changing the fashion game with her inclusive clothing and lingerie lines, but the songstress has also become known as a total style icon over the years.
When she first stepped onto the music scene, people only knew Rihanna for her hit singles like “Umbrella” and “SOS.” As she’s built an empire for herself, the Barbados native has taken a step back from music to focus on her fashion industry takeover. In 2018, she launched the Savage X Fenty lingerie line, which according to a Forbes report from February 2021 is worth one billion dollars.
“I wanted to include every woman,” Rihanna told Elle in 2018 before the first-ever Savage X Fenty fashion show. “I wanted every woman on the stage with different energies, different races, body types, different stages in their womanhood, culture. I wanted women to feel celebrated and that we started this s–t. We own this. This is our land because really it is.”
Since its inception, the brand has continued to break barriers. So much so, that it led to Rihanna creating and launching a Fenty clothing line in 2019. With her continued success in multiple industries, it’s safe to say the “This Is What You Came For” singer isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. When it comes to her style, Rihanna even knows how to dress up a growing baby bump.
Following her and ASAP Rocky‘s pregnancy announcement in January 2022, the musician continued to show off her style.
“I’m enjoying not having to worry about covering up my tummy,” she told People in February 2022, noting that “it’s fun” to experiment with clothes while pregnant. “If I feel a little chubby, it’s like, whatever! It’s a baby!”
Rihanna added: “Right now, being pregnant, some days you just feel like, ‘Ugh, I just want to lay here on this couch all day.’ But when you put on a little face and a little lipstick, you transform. You put some clothes on, and it’s like, when you look good, you feel good. I’ve heard that for a very long time, but it’s true. It really can get you up off that couch and make you feel like a bad bitch.”
Throughout her time in the spotlight, her various red carpet outfits have proved that she’s one to watch for style inspiration. Take a walk down memory lane and relive Rihanna’s best fashion looks over the years. Scroll through our gallery to see all the pics.
