On arrival at Grazia Towers this morning we were greeted by fellow colleagues who were reminiscing and coo-ing about their trip to the O2 last night to see the diva that is Rihanna. Yes, filling us with instant envy, we heard all about her insane dancing, awesome vocals and - one for the beauty girls - her very blonde new mop of hair! Yup, we love the news of a cool new crop, especially from someone as funky as Ri-Ri. Not one to shy away from ever-changing hairstyles, Rihanna skipped on stage donning her fancy blonde bob and of course it went down a treat - the singer always manages to pull off even the trickiest of trends (remind yourself of her on-going hair flairs here).
With a bit of further investigation and detective work, we have found out the precise origin of this fro, which came about yesterday afternoon. Yes, in true Ri-Ri style she was pictured on the set of her new music video (shot in the very grimy-glam London area of Dalston) for her upcoming single, You Da One, sporting the blondeness, and it seems she decided to keep it on for her show later on that day. Dressed up in a Clockwork Orange inspired outfit, the chin-length wig was teamed with a bowler hat and heavy bottom lashes in tribute to Stanley Cubrick’s epic film. Later on for her gig, Ri-Ri changed into a far more racy outfit, obvs, and her trusty rainbow-gemmed hot pants and bra were given an outing. The wig was still firmly in place however and was of course the cherry on the cake for her colourful ensemble.
What do we think? Well in all honestly us beauty gals are really LOVING the blonde fro and instantly felt a tad nostalgic about THAT Armani video where the pop-princess rocked an androgynous and uber-cool blonde pixie crop.
We can only hope this hot new hair is here to stay… but tell us, what do YOU all think of Rihanna’s blonde crop?
