The exciting news landed today that mega super star Rihanna is to design a capsule collection for high street giant River Island in 2013 and WOW I cannot wait.
No other popstar out there wets my fashion whistle as much as RiRi. She really is a true fashion icon of our times. Willing to take risks, she doesn't shy away from the latest trends, and over the past month has donned Stella psychadelic print jacket dresses, nike trainers with bicycle shorts and Trapstar hats and see through black crochet dresses avec nipple ring. Many celebrities these days turn to their stylists to create their 'look' but something about Rihanna screams out that she is very much behind her look, making her collection for River Island something to mark on the 2013 fashion calendar.
Her influence is vast and with River Island currently producing great quality clothing at exceptional prices the collection will no doubt be huge. Note, I got an amazing pair of lilac Sports Luxe trousers from the flagship Oxford Street branch last week for a bargain £8 reduced from £40.
In the meantime, if you can't wait for 2013 take a perve at my Top Five Rihanna outfits below to get your 2012 summer inspiration on...
