The weather’s nice in NY today, so it’s no surprise that Rihanna is out shopping in a white bustier…wait, what? This girl is displaying so many dramatic looks that we can barely keep up! The singer was spotted sans umbrella—or shirt, for that matter—checking out clothes at Intermix in Soho. Who knows what she might show up in a few hours from now…

The day after sporting a tuxedo at the Costume Institute Gala, Rihanna worked two dramatic looks yesterday in New York City. During the day, the singer wore dominatrix style thigh highs with cutoff jean hotpants and Karl Lagerfeld sunglasses to go to lunch at Da Silvano and shop. Then at night, Riri busted out in a bright yellow jacket and dramatic makeup for a night on the town. Perhaps Cinco De Mayo was making the artist feel spicy! [Source: Splash News Online]
Rihanna‘s surprise performance at Monday’s Met Gala may have been influenced by a party she wouldn’t be attending this week—the one for Chris Brown‘s 20th birthday. People reports that Brown, laying low in Virginia, had a small affair with family friends in the state.
Maybe the negative reaction to those jet ski photos made Chris realize that club-hopping wouldn’t be a good look right now (plus, unlike fellow May 5th baby Brooke Hogan, he isn’t drinking age yet). Is Rihanna’s current high profile her way of getting revenge?

The Costume Institute gala, held annually at the Met museum in NYC, is considered to be one of the most glamorous events in the world, but that doesn’t mean the celebrities who attend are immune to fashion missteps — or even fashion catastrophes. This year’s theme (“The Model as Muse”) was responsible for more than one “high-concept” outfit that we fail to understand.
Model Shalom Harlow‘s poofy black creation, for example, might be a brilliant piece of avant-garde design to some. But we’re just laypeople here at theFABlife, and when we look at her gown we see nothing but the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters.
Similarly, fashion insiders might look at Leighton Meester in Louis Vuitton and see an abstract-psychedelic masterpiece. But the getup just gives us a headache. Then there’s Madonna (fashion offenses listed here), Rihanna (we have no words) and Kirsten Dunst (we want to like this country-inspired dress, but flatter it does not). See pictures below of 2009 gala’s worst outfits.
Spending time in Barbados has seen Rihanna look happier than she has done since the traumatic alleged assault at the hands of Chris Brown. And now, she’s back in the arms of her ex-boyfriend and has definitely consigned Chris to the history bin, according to a report. Britain’s News of the World claims Ri-ri has rekindled her teenage romance with fellow Barbados native, 24-year-old Negus Sealy.
“Rihanna and Negus both realized there was still a strong sexual attraction between them and became inseparable. Whenever Rihanna went to the beach or out partying, Negus was always there. They were very careful not to be seen too closely together though as they’re trying to keep their relationship secret,” a friend says. Negus, who’s also apparently known as the local “Love God” and Rihanna definitely make a cute couple, as evidenced by the 2006 picture of them above and a more recent picture of them hanging out with Katy Perry.
Now she’s back in the U.S., will her rumored romance last the course? In any case, here’s to moving on! [Photo: Splash News Online]
She’s got the voice of an angel, but the feet of a beast. Britain’s Got Talent singing sensation Susan Boyle stepped out on her porch in Blackburn, Scotland wearing a fabulous blue robe emblazoned with stars. But look closely: from far away they may not look like much, but look carefully to see her rough dogs. That Susan is just full of surprises!

According to Us Magazine, those close to Rihanna are optimistic that the singer’s recent time in Barbados has helped put her relationship with Chris Brown behind her. “She’s realizing how precious life is,” said an insider. “She’s starting to see that one wrong choice about who she loves could turn her into the next Whitney Houston.” And don’t feel offended for Whitney—the troubled singer admonished Rihanna to “not make the same mistakes I did” after the February assault.
Ronald Fenty, Rihanna’s father, is ecstatic about her determination to move forward. “[She's] a different person, back to herself. It’s like Chris never existed. She seems reborn.” Sounds like the comeback will be in full effect once Brown’s trial is over.

Chris Brown‘s lawyer was back in court today, demanding that the judge dismiss the charges against his client due to the police department leaking information about the case. Shortly after the alleged violent incident between Brown and then-girlfriend Rihanna, a photo was leaked of her bruised and beaten face.
“The leaks can form the basis for a motion to dismiss the case in regards to outrageous governmental misconduct,” said Brown’s celebri-ttorney, Mark Geragos. The judge allowed the case to be delayed, and the gang will meet up again in court on May 28th to determine if there’s enough evidence against Brown to move forward with a trial.

Rihanna‘s attorneys filed a motion last week for the LAPD to return almost a million dollars in jewelry that was taken as evidence on the night of her alleged assault by boyfriend Chris Brown. Seems the jewelers who loaned her the goods are getting antsy, and she’ll be billed $1.4 million if she can’t get them back.
Brown’s attorney and the detective overseeing the case claim they’d be fine with photographs standing in for the jewelry in court, but the DA’s office has yet to consent after almost a month of queries. “At this stage, we’re not even sure what evidence is going to be entered into the case,” a spokeswoman told People. The jewelry will be used for oversea events, according to the request—though who’d want to wear the stuff now?
