As Rihanna Wears Hoops Bigger Than Her Face, We Pick The Top 20 Hoops To Buy Now

Hoop earrings dropped off our style radar thanks to Vicky Pollard and Jenny from the Block, but the 90s accessory is experiencing a comeback along with backpacks n' snapbacks. Rihanna has as many hoops as she has red lipsticks, and this week she demonstrated her commitment to the hoop by wearing a pair even bigger than her face. Her thin gold hoola hoop hoops are so big that they brush on her shoulders.

She almost flashed the paps in her micro mini shorts and is wearing a white tee with no bra, but it is the hoops that really got us talking in Grazia Towers. Could we, would we? Can you move your shoulders in them? Do they hurt? The consensus is these are even more bonkers than her custom gold grills.

Stars wearing hoops [Rex]

She's not the only star to get hooped as Diane Kruger was spotted in a gold pair, Zoe Saldana has been working thin Tiffany's and last week Lady Gaga wore a chucky '80s pair. The hoop hasn't been so in vogue since Carrie Bradshaw championed ghetto gold bling rings in Sex and the City.

To help you get the look we have rounded up our pick of the top 20 hoops. Sadly we couldn't find any as big as Rihanna's on the whole of the world wide web, but that's probably best for your lobes. Those things should come with a health warning. Whether you're after an elegant silver earring, a pair with serious spike or diamond-encrusted sparklers we have the best of what is available to buy right now in the gallery below...
