It’s kind of crazy that this is the first time that Rihanna and MAC are teaming up. The international superstar who is known for her eclectic style and edgy fashion has always seemed like a shoe-in to collaborate with the cutting edge makeup brand. Well, it looks like all of our prayers have been answered. Rihanna and MAC will be launching limited-edition four-piece color collections throughout the year that will rotate seasonally. I cannot wait to see what Rihanna and MAC come up with as Rihanna has an amazing sense of style and a sultriness that comes through her makeup choices and application. Stay tuned for more as news develops!
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.
Rihanna is a style icon known for her ever-changing hair color, mixing high and low fashion and rocking the hottest nail trends of the moment. True to her usual daring style, she repped some seriously stylish Minx Nails at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. Applied by world renown celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees, Rihanna’s Minx Nails in “100 dollar bill” and ““£ 50 Note”, this cutting-edge look is sure to catch on with the fashionably fabulous set all over the world. I love the decadent appeal of the money-inspired Minx Nail creations as it comes across as though you shredded up a $100 dollar bill and had your manicurist apply the shredded currency to your nails – tres gauche! Check out close-ups of this rich manicure!
If you love Rihanna for taking chances with her look then you will no doubt love her latest hairstyle – dreads! She recently donned a head-full of long, thick, dark dreads during her performance of her new song “Where Have U Been?” on Fox’s American Idol! Even though the dreads are obviously fake, they do lend a certain earthy sensuality that is very appealing and works well with Rihanna’s Caribbean roots. Do you love it or hate it? Weigh in!
