Whew, anyone else feeling tired?! It’s only Wednesday, and it’s already been a whirlwind week in Rihanna-land, between her “#CCcertified” Kaiser tee, her new River Island sneak peek video and then, less than 24 hours ago, the campaign itself. Not to mention, those photos that surfaced yesterday of the singer rocking a platinum bob! Although the ’do later turned out to be a wig, that’s not the only hair change RiRi has up her sleeve these days. Last night, she sent L.A. paparazzi into a frenzy with her brand new long, glossy, blonde weave. With a reverse ombré hue and Barbie-worthy waves, let’s just cut to the chase and say we’re officially obsessed.

The shiny cascading waves here are pretty much the exact opposite of the shaggy chop she showed off just mere hours earlier. In fact, this golden look sort of reminds us of the glam locks she had last week, but just several shades lighter. Rihanna showed off the dramatic change on Instagram yesterday, saying “I woke up in a new….weave!” It’s a testament to Rihanna’s versatility that she can pull off SO many different styles, from a black pixie to white-blonde curls to an edgy half-shaved ’do and still kill it. And her outfit’s obviously awesome, too. She’s working a black snakeskin cap and doing the leather-on-leather thing… proving that even though her new blonde hair might be totally glam, she still hasn’t ditched that downtown edge.
