Rihanna’s Gone Grey!

Grey is the new black! Well at least that’s what Rihanna wants you to think. She recently snapped a few pics of her new hair color and posted it on Instagram. The grey-haired diva worked her new silver shade in a stunning manner that makes me think grey will no longer be looked upon as a color you need to cover up. I love how daring and bold she is when it comes to her fashion and beauty choices. She lives to push the envelope and does it so well! Keep it up Rih Rih!

Beauty News: Rihanna to Launch Third Fragrance -Nude

Rihanna has quickly risen through the ranks to become one of my favorite singers and entertainers. I love her edgy style and ability to transform herself on the regular. Her personal life aside,  she has definitely risen to global superstar status in a relatively short time period. As one of the biggest entertainers in the world, it was no surprise that she would eventually go into the beauty market. Known for her cutting edge style, her foray into fragrance was a natural acceleration. With the success of two fragrances Reb’l Fleur and Rebelle, she’s set to launch her third fragrance Nude which is sure to be a big hit with fans and beauty fanatics alike. Nude will hit Macy’s counters next week just in time for the beginning of the holiday shopping rush.

Unlike Reb’f Fleur and Rebelle which both had stronger bases, Nude is a softer more sensual approach to fragrance. The fragrance story includes guava nectar, mandarin and pear as well as orange blossom, gardenia petals and vanilla orchid ingredients. The ad campaign is equally as sensual with Rihanna practically unrecognizable in a blond wig posing in very revealing lingerie. As Rihanna continues her ascension within the music business, you can be sure that her beauty ventures will rise right along with her.
