We have a new fashion consultant in our midst, y’all. No, you don’t have to meet her IRL to get her opinion on your look. She’ll come to you through the computer and you’re probably already familiar with her personal style.
OK, fine. You read the headline. IT’S RIHANNA! RIHplies, my new favorite Tumblr of all time, keeps track of every Instagram comment @badgalriri has offered up to individual fans, fan accounts, critics, and fellow famous peeps. A lot of Rih’s replies revolve around #FASHUN, which makes sense since she has (a) designed her own line of clothing, (b) produced and sat on the panel of Styled to Rock, and (c) has on-point personal style. So, without further ado, may I introduce to you: Rihanna, fashion consultant.
SHE’LL OFFER ADVICE…
She has life experience and is happy to weigh in if you’re having a hard time deciding what to wear.
Don’t feel bad about your purchase! Rihanna says you’ll wear it every day.
She feels strongly about buying a good kitten heel when you find one.
Her advice isn’t limited to clothing and shoes. She has feelings about accessories, too.
She’s encouraging about things you’ve been working on, even suggesting other directions in which to take your work.
She doles out accurate style twinsies like NBD.
SHE’LL TELL YOU WHAT SHE’S WEARING…
Unlike other pop stars who simply caption their pictures with the names of designers, Rihanna lets you know what she’s wearing via lyrics from popular, designer-centric songs.
She has many totally, 100%-relatable personal anecdotes about fashion.
She will not suffer for fashion (other than having a snake wrapped around her naked bod), and neither should you.
AND SHE’LL KEEP YOUR FASHION KNOWLEDGE IN CHECK
Don’t guess what designer she’s wearing. She’ll catch ya.
Don’t submit photos to her #navyphotochallenge if you’re not 100% sure what she’s talking about. Also, learn what a choker is.
And finally, the best piece of fashion advice Rihanna has ever given is: Don’t try to pass an imitation off as the real thing. You will be dismissed.
