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.

Rihanna‘s father, Ronald Fenty, is obviously protective of his daughter after she was assaulted by Chris Brown, but he has found something to laugh at as a result of this whole situation. Speaking to US Weekly, Fenty said that he was amused after seeing Brown dolled up in his best good-boy outfit on Larry King Live to plead his case. “The costume he wore was so funny,” Fenty said. “That bow tie thing. He needs to bury that.”
Agreed, that baby blue bow tie should have never left the joke shop in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. [Photo: Splash News Online]
The full lineup will be announced later this morning, but Jermaine Jackson has already confirmed that Chris Brown is one of the stars who’ll be performing at the tribute concert to his brother Michael in Vienna, Austria on September 26.
The worldwide event will see up to 25 acts perform some of Jackson’s greatest hits in front of an audience of 65,000 at the concert, not to mention a global audience of millions. If he’s aiming to rehabilitate his career after the shocking attack on ex-(current?) girlfriend Rihanna earlier this year, Chris has managed to pick one of the most prestigious and emotional events to make his official comeback. Other acts currently announced include Akon and Angela Bassett, although further press conferences in London and Berlin will see further names rolled out. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Could Rihanna and Chris Brown really be so desperate to get around the restraining order he’s been slapped with that they’ll try and meet up in a different country? That’s the latest story coming out about the are-they-aren’t-they couple, claiming that they’re planning a vacation to Acapulco, Mexico, next month in order to circumnavigate the order that bans Chris from coming within 50 yards of Ri in the next five years in the U.S.
“They spoke to their lawyers to see what was allowed, and are now planning two weeks in Mexico. They want to spend some quality time together and know they have a lot to reconcile before they can make their relationship public again,” claims British celebrity mag Star.
Chris has famously already stated that he still “loves” the woman he beat up and choked that night back in February, and rumors have constantly swirled that the two still had feelings for each other and had already hooked up. Are they really going to make a go of it again? We guess only time will tell. [Photo: WireImage]
