Is Rihanna Channeling TV's Gladiators In Her Adidas Originals x Opening Ceremony Spandex Onesie?

Do you remember TV smash Gladiators? Of course you do! Do you remember what the hunky chaps on said programme used to wear? Hmm… think spandex, think onesie, think chest exposing spandex, this chest exposing spandex onesie, think Rihanna? Say WHAT? Yes ladies and gents, it appears that maybe Wolf, Hunter or maybe even Cobra have been tapped for style-inspiration from the one and only RiRi for her latest outing in London.

Could this be RiRi's latest inspiration? Gladiators, are you READY?

No stranger to a bit of super-tight lycra, crop tops or racy leopard print, Miss Fenty combines all three of these raunchaay elements into a single ensemble via her red adidas Originals x Opening Ceremony all-in-one bra and catsuit. Deemed suitable enough for a spot of shopping at Roberto Cavalli, there’s no denying that our favourite clothes horse once again gallops away with this look. Even if it is does contain notes of extreme bodybuilder, it also cements our recent feeling that adidas Originals is truly the coolest sportswear off-shoot out there right now. Loved by the blogosphere and A-listers alike, the collaborations Originals work on – like those with Jeremy Scott – are ultra-popular and cult-followed.

Could a mere mortal get away with such daring use of spandex? Probably not. And especially not without a pair of heels. But Rihanna werks it out with a pair of adidas x Mastermind Japan sneakers, then ups the glam-factor with some all-important gold-chain-age, a clutch bag and sunglasses. We don't know how she does it.

What do YOU think? Is it a style smash? Or more car crash?
