  • A dozen years of Rihanna.

Her style has evolved with the years

Ever since she came on the scene in 2005, Rihanna has continued to win us over with every changing haircut, every red carpet appearance and every street style.

The Bajan beauty hasn’t only proven that she is a trendsetter, she has also cemented her status as a fashion icon and one of the most stylish women to ever walk the earth.

There might have been a few of her looks that weren’t necessarily our cup of tea but one thing is sure, if there’s anyone who can pull off a look – any look at all, it is Rihanna Robyn Fenty.

Now that she’s turned 29, we take a look at her style evolution from 2005 till date.



In baggies

Baggie jeans, cropped tops, hoop earrings, trainers. She was just like every other teenager.

Pretty in crop top and white jeans
A smile to melt hearts
Life and her style was simple back then



Things began to change in ’06, though

The year saw her experimenting with her looks but going mostly for a sweetheart image.

But not too much
As she still had that innocent look
Well, she was daring at times too




Her style game was rising some more at this time

It was the ‘Umbrella’ era and she was growing into her own woman.

She was growing into the woman she is
The daring Rih was coming out of the sweetheart Rih
At the Grammys that year



Rih in ’08

Having just left her teenage years, she became a little more assertive with her style and began wearing her hair shorter.

Simply stylish
A princess
Also your pretty girl next door



Riri rocked the short hair into ’09

Her 2008 style carried on well into the year.

And we loved her look then as well
Always slaying
Forget just slaying, how about queening



Breezy tried to kill her vibe in this period

She made a comeback after the Chris Brown incident and her style was a little bolder than before.

But Rih brushed that aside to keep up her style game
And boy did she slay
Even when it seemed like she wasn’t trying
And when she did try, it came out gorg!



Glowing in white

Grown woman with absolutely no fucks to give. Her red hair became something of a signature.

Too much sauce
Bold hair and great dress
Casual slayage



Rihanna went from red to blonde

Still doing her thing and rocking blonde hair more and more because well, blondes have more fun.

Out for the night
Only Rih would pull this off





Dear Rih remained beautiful in 2013.

Your hip babe



Hey beautiful

She continued to make it clear that she was playing the fashion game by her own rules.

At the Diamond Ball
Edgy Riri
And boom!

And deservedly got honoured with the Fashion Icon award at the CFDAs. (We can’t forget her daring Swarovski dress that literally broke the internet)



Style getting more sophisticated

She made quite a lot of fashion statements in 2015.

She unveiled her fragrance
And showed us how much she loves pink
We mean, she really really loves pink
But whatever the colour, she owned the style



Whatever the ensemble, she be killing it

She couldn’t be bothered with rules again. Rihanna wears whatever Rihanna wants to.

Sneaks to go with the dress like normal
Didn’t we tell you she loves pink?
Peep the converse



Bad gal Rih at the Grammys

With just a couple of days into the new year, the singer has served us two major looks.

Different year, still loving her some pink

Safe to say we’ll be seeing more of these as the year goes by.
