YAAS, Rih! We see you, girl! And not just because you may be the only person in NYC not wearing pants outside in November! (To be fair, it did get above freezing temps recently.) Rihanna debuted a brand new ‘do while out and about in the Big Apple this weekend celebrating the end of her Diamonds World Tour, and while we are DYING to know what her real hair looks like (because it changes shape on the reg these days), we are LOVING its latest incarnation. Rih stepped out with a chunky bob and bangs, cut by her long-time hairstylist, Ursula Steven, who was also responsible for the sleek, asymmetrical bob that helped put her on the map in 2007. Wearing a velvet, long-sleeved, mock neck playsuit from her River Island collab and thigh-high boots, Rihanna werqued her leggy mod look with a double dog tag necklace and a bold red lip. Gah, so good.

Rihanna’s Good Girl Gone Bad-era bob took on several forms during it’s tenure (aside from asymmetrical): it was stick-straight with blunt bangs, stick-straight without blunt bangs and chunky with a colored streak. (All in a matter of months, BTW.) This may be the first time she’s rocked this particular look though, which is a lot more layered and has piecey bangs that are similar to the ones she was sporting with the mullet. But is the mullet gone for good? Or is it still lurking around her #gothglam wardrobe? Are you into Rihanna’s new, chunky ’do? Or do you feel about as excited as she looks in this forlorn photo she posted on Instagram? (We’re sure she’s just, like, jetlagged or whatever.)
