Rihanna launches fashion collection
Rihanna launches Rihanna for River Island collection during London Fashion Week.
Rihanna is expanding her resume to include fashion designer! The singer launched her new capsule clothing collection this week abroad during London Fashion Week.
According to the Daily Mail, the star has teamed up with British fashion store River Island for the collection, which focuses on everything from flowy maxi dresses to sexy crop tops.
The line marks the singer’s first time dabbling in fashion design. “I've wanted to design my own fashion line for a very long time,” Rihanna told the press. “This is something I've wanted to do ever since I started loving fashion. I got passionate about it and every time I saw something on a rack there would be something I'd want to do to it to change it. So I felt like the only way I could do that would be to design the perfect thing for me. This is my way of doing that -- teaming up with River Island and designing clothes for young women with young, sassy personalities.”
Pieces in the collection include cropped bra tops, button-down skirts, floral shorts and trousers and other flirty designs.

Then after the show, er, Oscars, it's the after party. Then after the party, it's the... Best Dressed List, of course. Nikki already picked her tops for the Academy Awards red carpet (did you vote yet?), so now it's time to see what the stars wore to the post-celebrations.
As I continue my personal campaign to swap out E!'s mani cam with a back-of-updo cam (and as a service to all the hardworking hairstylists who spent so much time creating beautiful hair looks for the 2014 Oscars), I'd like to point out that we miss a lot of gorgeous detail when we don't get the back view of a star's hair.

When someone says “Julia Roberts,” you think teeth. You think hair. But while you may not immediately think fashion, she has had a pretty consistent—and consistently pretty—style since her Mystic Pizza days: clean, classic, menswear-inspired looks that let her natural beauty—and rightly famous smile—take center stage. Here’s how she has elevated that look over the years.

We’re at the tail end of a jam-packed awards season, with the grand finale—the Oscars, duh—just a few days away. We can’t wait to see what our favorite nominees wear—we already know Jennifer Lawrence will step out in a breathtaking Dior, while we hope to see Lupita Nyong’o pick another brilliantly bold monochromatic gown. As for which designer she’ll select—Gucci? Ralph Lauren?—that’s anyone’s guess.
