Ever-the-trendsetters Rihanna and Lindsay Lohan have hopped the pond for Paris Fashion Week and have since been spotted looking trés chic while shopping and hitting up the most fabulous shows. While both honored the menswear trend with black blazers, each added their own trendy twist. RiRi continued her edgy streak by pairing the shoulder-padded jacket with a black bra, lace, and shiny parachute pants. LiLo wore a loose-fitting floral blouse with black tights and grungy metal-adorned boots. Who looked prettier in Paris? [Photos: Getty Images, Splash News Online]

Rihanna stepped out on the streets of Berlin this week in another fierce fashion creationÃ‚Â but found her style doppelganger in an unexpected place. We’re sure Ri (or her stylist) didn’t intend it to look as if she’d swiped the doorman’s spare hat (or was attempting to break into the hotel by disguising herself as a bellhop while on the run from some crims…no, no, we’re losing it here), but it makes a good photo-op!
Hmmm – who wore the official-looking hat better? Heh.
Rihanna looked the picture of fashion and happiness while on vacation in Venice, Italy. The singer looked fantastic in an all black ensemble, which contrasted with her new blonde highlights. Riri was in town for the wedding of a pal, but also found time to hang with friends and go for a boat ride. Looking good bella! [Photos: Splash News Online]
Rihanna is certainly known for her out-there style and has wowed us practically every week with her one fierce outfit after another. But we’re not totally sure about her latest effort, which sees that little blonde bit at the front of her bangs grow into a full-on dye job. Ri stepped out yesterday with a punky blond new ‘do; we’re kind of a bit “meh” about it, and reckon she looks better with dark hair. What do you think? [FilmMagic]
Waiiiit, what is this? Are Justin Timberlake and Rihanna secretly an item?! This is news to us (and we bet it’s news to Jessica Biel), but the rumor mill is hard at work trying to prove that the pop stars are in fact dating. Today a source noted to Showbiz Spy that “Justin and Rihanna have been seeing each other for the past few weeks,” and the rag also mentions that the couple were featured in a blind item in the New York Daily News recently that read, “two pop stars made sweet music together after the gal gave the guy a private lap dance” at a New York club. One witness corroborated the story, saying, “It was at 10ak in NYC and they left together. They are seeing each other on the low!”
This would be huge – imagine what a super-couple these two would make. We’re keeping a close eye on these kids to see what happens. [Photos: GettyImages]
We have done Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week five times, and this was by far the most fabulous of them all. The energy in New York City was back, and more celebrities than ever came out to the tents to watch the models show off the new looks for Spring 2010. From hanging with Rihanna on Fashion’s Night Out to hosting our own Fashion Week party to checking out the hottest in shoes and clothing, this Fashion Week was truly amazing.

Only Rihanna could look hot wearing her dad’s shirt. Riri paired the men’s white collared shirt with patterned leggings, a bustier, and gray boots when she headed out to the 40/40 club in New York City on Saturday night. Topped off with those cool shades, the “Disturbia” singer always looks fashionable, even in a getup no one else really could pull off. [Photo: Splash News Online]
She may be up for a VMA for Best Male Video with the “Life Your Life” video she did with T.I., but that didn’t stop Rihanna from having a little fun the night before the MTV Video Music Awards. Last night, Rihanna dined at the House of Hype’s directors’ dinner at the Hotel on Rivington in New York’s Lower East Side. The Rivington’s Levant East of Thor restaurant served up special dishes for guests who also included Pink ,who took a corner table and sipped red wine throughout the evening, and husband Carey Hart, and Lance Bass, who dined while listening to tunes spun by DJ Manero.
After dinner, which ended at approximately midnight, Rihanna, who again was dressed head-to-toe in all black, and her entourage went upstairs to the Rivington’s famous three-level penthouse suite, where a post-dinner party was already in full swing. Her group took their private table by the window which was stocked with plenty of Grey Goose and Red Bull. Bodyguards protected the singer while she laughed and sipped drinks with her pals and stayed mostly sitting on the couch. She later went upstairs to the rooftop which features a jacuzzi and 360 degree view of Manhattan and looked out at the city while texting on her cell phone. At 1:50 RiRi left the party through a private exit door. She couldn’t stay out TOO late, she does have a little MTV Video Music Awards ceremony to attend tonight! [Photos: Getty Images]
You would think that after a traumatic year filled with court appearances and constant paparazzi attention, an A-list diva like Rihanna would keep to herself. Not so, as TheFABlife discovered after hanging with RiRi at the Intermix/Paper Magazine event in new York City last night.
Rihanna arrived at the Fashion’s Night Out soiree at a little after 9 pm, and stayed for only a few minutes, but luckily spent some time hanging with us. Although the singer has been chased by media for the last few months, the perfectly put together starlet was happy to chat with TheFABlife about our other favorite thing: fashion!
“I’m so excited for Fashion Week,” Rihanna tells TheFABlife. “I’m wearing Alexander Wang and Balmain,” RiRi said of her futuristic sunglasses and black veil dress that hugged her curvaceous figure. After being ushered into a private corner of the store, Rihanna and TheFABlife shared a laugh about the circus that the event had become. Overall, she seemed to be in great spirits, and with a collaboration with Jay-Z and Kanye West under her belt and a new album allegedly on the way, why shouldn’t she be?
“Time to go,” the singer laughed before being escorted out of the event and through the SoHo streets, which had become cluttered with fans and party-goers waiting to catch a glimpse of the “Disturbia” singer, until she was whisked away into her chauffeured SUV. [Photos: Stephen Mao]
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicks off in New York City tomorrow. For seven days, celebrities and fashionistas from around the world come to check out the latest collections from the world’s best designers in the tents at Bryant Park. The competition is tough in the front row, to see who can look the best in the center of the fashion universe. See who brought their A game to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in 2008. [Photo: Getty Images]
