Whenever Rihanna steps onto a red carpet, it feels like a new age in fashion and beauty is born. Ever since her first appearance in front of the cameras way back in 2005, the singer has attended countless award shows, Met Galas, and launch events — and slayed every. single. time.
While her style is always one to watch, the nine-time Grammy award-winning singer has had quite the beauty evolution, too. As the founder of Fenty Beauty — her makeup and skin care line that launched in 2017, and played a role in making her the youngest self-made female billionaire — Riri knows a thing or two about turning a look.
The multi-hyphenate mogul, who also founded the lingerie brand Savage x Fenty, is constantly changing up her makeup, hair, and nails in a way that’s absolutely mesmerizing to watch.
Ahead, a look at Rihanna’s red carpet beauty evolution, from 2005 to now — featuring standout hits like her pixie cut from 2008, the draped blush moment from the 2017 Met Gala, multiple stints with copper hair, the 2023 Super Bowl debut of her lip gloss, and many, many more.
