Um, is there is a career change in Rihanna's future? The usually scorching singer went for classic, classy, and legit demure Tuesday night: Rihanna wore a pink suit for a MAC Cosmetics event in L.A. Rihanna's style is so sexy that it usually registers off the charts, like when she wears pasties, but she has been known to switch it up and dial it down as well, like when she opts for pajamas on the red carpet. Most recently, she toned it down in a pink-and-white checked, ladies-who-lunch, and almost conservative Altuzarra blazer and skirt. Seriously, RiRi decked out in business casual, complete with a boss lady bun, threw me for a loop...at first.
But then I thought better of it. The event was associated with the MAC AIDS Fund, of which she has been the spokesmodel with her version of the VIVA Glam lipsticks and lipglass. Of course, she's worn pasties to charity events in the past, but this suit seems to indicate that RiRi's growing up.
Plus, it's not like she was unrecognizable: Rihanna paired the soft pink suit with deep, berry lipstick, letting her tattoos peek out of the blazer. Still, no one is used to seeing Rihanna play it so conservatively with her attire choices. Even her blush-hued shoes, which were huarache-like with an ankle strap, were dialed down and demure.
Ready Rihanna's (awesome) version of conservative? Let your eyes drift down.
There was also a subtle slit. And her tattoos doubled as accessories with this look.
Don't you feel like you should be submitting your quarterly expense report or your marketing prospectus to RiRi?
And check out this look from the back. That topknot is on point.
Yep, her hair and makeup "suited" her outfit. Well done, Rihanna.
