Rihanna Does A Gwen Stefani And Wears Hair In 90s-Tastic Knots At iHeartRadio Awards

Last night Rihanna hit the iHeartRadio awards in black lace and leather with woah-there blue lipstick (and tongue). She debuted her, what she calls, '#GhettoGoth' look last September, when she wore crucifix chokers and crushed velvet to fashion week. Last time she did this look she went for a mullet, while last night she wore her hair in Bantu knots.

It's always impressive when she finds a new 'do she hasn't tried. She paired it with oversized hoops and metallic green lipstick, which dyed her tongue an alarming shade of green. Rihanna tweeted: 'My tongue!!! Kicked off my lipstick about 5 times, lol!'

Rihanna was the star of the night as she went home with four gongs, including Artist of the Year. In her acceptance speech Rih said: 'Shout out to all the other people I’ve ever worked with. I know I’m a pain in the ass but it’s worth it because now we got the biggest award of the night.”

The hairstyle was big with popstars like Lauryn Hill, Bjork and Gwen Stefani in the 90s, but is also having a moment now. Miley Cyrus has been championing knots for a while now.

This decade is certainly the hair-spiration du jour, as earlier this week Anne Hathaway sported 90s hair twists on the red carpet.

Instagram is all in knots as model Anja Konstantinova and Rita Ora regularly post 'double top knot' selfies. Vanessa Hudgens wore her hair in knots on the cover of Paper Magazine last year and Cara Delevingne did a Bjork for her DKNY x Opening Ceremony campaign.

Darien Robertson (Fri May 02 14:05:12 BST 2014): "Ghetto Goth"? LOL. Also, Rihanna's wearing a hairstyle commonly worn by BLACK WOMEN, known as bantu knots. lol Gwen Stefani merely co-opted it. Just a tad of research could've cleared this up.
