When I saw this, I could not stop giggling. She looks like an inmate at the David Byrne Prison for Psycho Killers on a Road To Nowhere After Burning Down The House.
“She looks like an inmate at the David Byrne Prison for Psycho Killers on a Road To Nowhere After Burning Down The House.”
And this, friends, is why I love GFY.
YES THANK YOU FUG GIRLS that made my morning.
The only reason I can think of for this many layers is that this took place in the UK outside because she was turning on Christmas lights. I read about it in a British account that hilariously asked, “turning into a diva?!” because she arrived very late (via the Rihanna Plane!) and then performed one song for the fans which she didn’t even finish (?!) and was paid half a million pounds.
Wow. I know so many people who belong in that particular house of corrections.
And I was surprised that you didn’t title this “Stop Making Fug”. At least it’s blue, and not, oh, orange. But why she really needs to go all retro with this is a big jeweled pin right at the neckline of that fine high-buttoned collar.
The pants-over-the-shoes things is so awful. I think that’s the worst bit of this outfit.
She has got a nice face, though.
The David Byrne Prison for Psycho Killers on a Road To Nowhere After Burning Down The House = the newest Broadway musical, composed entirely of Talking Heads music. I can’t wait.
With Bunraku puppetry! One of the puppets, being, of course, this.
The sad thing is, I feel like this could almost work (at least, in my personal slightly-weird world of “work”) with a few changes: Ditch the matching rugby shirt and either go with a plain top or just the shirt, get a different blazer in a shade of blue that goes with the rest (urgh), and wear slightly more hardcore shoes. Granted, it might still be an outfit more fitting on SWINTON than RiRi here, but there are parts of this that I’m enjoying (aside from the effing brilliant David Byrne riff, Heather).
The WORST thing about this is..it’s like the hipster section of Pinterest threw up on her. I totally know where she was going with it and I would have defended her if everything had FIT. But it doesn’t and I can’t. She looks like her Homeless Lady Stolen Grocery Cart is just outside the frame. It’s like Kesha taking a bath finally–she’s trying, but not hard enough.
Also, that hair is from Susie Bubble ironic blogger hell.
Trust me, Heather, you definitely do NOT want to go to the Westfield Centre, Stratford!
And why oh why does that blazer not fit her at all? I simply don’t get it.
That coat is a GREAT start on her Halloween costume for next year though. I can totally see her being the Tardis.
Leave the big suit to you-know-who, though I do think it looks comfy; hasn’t anyone told her that horizontal stripes are embiggening? Also, and this isn’t funny, the color scheme of the stripes is sort of Maus-adjacent. http://www.google.com/imgres?start=235&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=V5r&sa=X&tbo=d&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1840&bih=877&tbm=isch&tbnid=cFiz15jpKuhwjM:&imgrefurl=http://entertainment.time.com/2011/08/30/all-time-100-best-nonfiction-books/slide/maus-by-art-spiegelman/&docid=g_9LFiHOPB7UOM&imgurl=http://timeentertainment.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/maus.jpg%253Fw%253D260&w=260&h=364&ei=_LCrUNC5A62u0AH35IDABA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=4&vpy=372&dur=137&hovh=266&hovw=190&tx=71&ty=141&sig=107064004943869795003&page=5&tbnh=144&tbnw=103&ndsp=61&ved=1t:429,r:56,s:200,i:172
THAT’s the other thing that was nagging at the back of my brain. Thanks, char.
I kind of love this! She looks like a real-life version of a 90s-fashion caricature. And somehow, this pleases me….
I was thinking ’80s and that somewhere Max Headroom is head over hee-hee-heels, thinking he’s found “the PER-PER-PERRRRR-FECT W-W-W-WOMAN!”
Talking Heads is now owning my mind- sweet!
And yes, when WAS the last time Rihanna wore this much fabric?
When I saw this on Gawker or Jezebel, my first thought was “Heather and/or Jessica are going to have fun with this.”
This is yet another installment of WTF. It seems impossible that she has no clue how ridiculous she looks. Perhaps this is her official CB-beatdown garb.
This is killing me with pure joy. It’s basically a Thanksgiving week miracle.
Psycho Killer, Qu’est-ce que c’est, fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better, Run run run run run run run away
Welcome to my ear worm.
This outfit is hilarious on Rhianna.. If Swinton was wearing it we would all be swooning.
This would be fun…
on no one!
… swooning with LAUGHTER.
This is a sad day for me. Heather comments on my post and she disses me!
(I swear – put Swinton’s head on this structured monstrosity, fug or fab it, and you will get some swoons.)
This girl needs to go away, take a break, and let people actually miss her.
This outfit shows her state of mind. Insane.
Hey kids – it’s Inmate Barbie! The must-have toy for the holidays!
Warden Ken doll sold separately…
I gotta go with Jack Nicholson as the Joker in Batman and Prince’s love child. Oh, honey. How on earth did you stand in front of a mirror, and think “Yup. Looking good.”?
She matched her lipstick to the Westfield logo–nice touch. The only nice thing I can find to say is that at least she’s not naked.
She wants it so bad.
Sigh….at least she’s covered up. This girl is the poster child for overexposure, in every possible connotation of the word.
That’s for sure. I think she must be insane.
Word. This might be ugly, but at least none of her bits are winking back at us and she doesn’t look like she’s about the work the downtown corner with Julia Roberts.
These girls are going to so freakin’ regret dressing like this when they get older. They’ll still have great bodies, but nobody has the tone of a 20 year old except a 20 year old. #youthiswastedontheyoung
This is why I love you.
So wrong in so many ways and yet hysterically funny at the same time.
This is very amusing, even without the Talking Heads reference. The thing is that Rihanna is so pretty I think she’s almost working this ridiculous outfit – it’s so beautifully coordinated with the blues.
Oh, thank you Fug Girls. It’s been a long day, and that was just the laugh I needed.
And Rihanna, never change. Your mastery of fug never fails to delight me.
This is yet another hideous construction that attests to the complete lunacy of her emphasis in the public eye. If she can make it onto the fashion magazines, then so can the homeless man I always seeing ambling through my local Trader Joes. Style? Hideous. Unless she TRIES to look like a woman dressing up as a man most of the time. Voice? Not exactly one in a million. Message to the world? IlovesexIlovesexIlovesexIgobacktoabusersIlovesexsexsex. Sigh. Same OLD.
Thank you Fug Girls. You gave me a big chuckle with the commentary. I heartily agree!
After that trashy cover she did recently this is classy and hilarious at the same time. Yes, please.
WHAT?! no words…
Ummm … Errr … I like it.
I’d like it a whole lot better if the jacket was two sizes smaller, but the high neckline shirt, the necklaces, the stripes, the big fabric on her lean frame, like a zoot suit- I like.
Her entourage told her it looked good and she believed them.
I much prefer Rhianna dressed sexy and not like Jim Carrey in the 90s
