RIHANNA IN RAF SIMONS
We have a number of firsts here: first time there's an ensemble from a men's show in Runway vs. Red Carpet. First time there's a diver motif on the article of clothing in question. And first time mesh bike shorts were added to change up the look. (Not the first time, however, that the model and the celeb have the same haircut.)
We guess RiRi's rattail is sticking around for the duration of Fashion Week. The singer pairs her bizarre hairpiece with a gray Zac Posen design and '90s-inspired black platforms (to match her totally '90s choker, of course) at the Opening Ceremony show.
RIHANNA AT THE GRAMMYS
Zoë Ruderman, Senior Style Editor: When the Grammys wardrobe memo asked stars to cover up, I assumed Rihanna would rebel and go half-naked. I mean, isn't showing skin a hobby of hers? But she surprised everyone by wearing this beautiful Alaïa gown with a train and crisscross neckline, plus enough sheer paneling to remind everyone RiRi wasn't, like, entering the sisterhood.
While red lips are the hot color for fall, it's no surprise RiRi bucks convention with a crazy blue pout. What is surprising: The singer keeps it covered up (!) in a varsity jacket, cuffed skinnies and a bunch of rings at a London photo call for her new River Island collection.
We had a feeling the hair chameleon's gray moment wouln't last long. RiRi went back to brunette and lost some serious length, debuting a short chop, which showcases her natural curls. “Still tryna get used to my hurr," she shared on Instagram.
DORIS DAY & RIHANNA: 25
Two blondes, two (very) different beauties. Sweet-as-pie Day became one of the top stars of all time thanks to sly sex comedies like 1959's Pillow Talk, and she maintained her signature wholesome style throughout her career. "Bad Girl" RiRi, on the other hand, changes her look with each new song, but she's also setting her own records, with the most No. 1 hits in Billboard history. Still, can she top Day's catchy "Que Sera, Sera"?
RIHANNA & CHRIS BROWN
Public opinion be damned, the on-again, off-again pair raised eyebrows when they shared a smooch at the September 2012 show after Rihanna won the video of the year award for "We Found Love." They later appeared cozy at the 2013 Grammys, but their current status? Splitsville.

JESSICA VS. RIHANNA
Old MacDonald had a farm, and on that farm Jessica and Rihanna duked it out in these Big Star USA overalls. Not surprisingly, they style them very differently, with the actress looking so 2013 and the singer bringing back 1994 with a crop top and jacket around her waist.

BRA TOPS WITH OVERSIZE BLAZERS
The difference between Rihanna and all of us? We dreamed about growing up to be as snazzy a dresser as Tiffani Amber Thiessen on Saved by the Bell (seen here in 1990); RiRi actually made that dream come true.
Have you ever seen a granny cardigan look so positively un-grannie-ish? The singer leaves us without words when she goes without pants in this floor-length sweater, accessorized with tons of pearls at the Chanel Haute Couture fashion show in Paris.
You might say the singer's all about giving back, whether she's on the stage or on the red carpet. "For the first time, I don't want to get rid of the curves," she told Vogue in 2011. "My body is comfortable, and it's not unhealthy, so I'm going to rock with it."
