It is a real achievement that Rihanna did not look ridiculous in twelve pounds of pearls, lace gloves, a business jumpsuit, and what appear to be shoes that are half velour. It’s like a mash-up of the sartorial stylings of Madonna and Karl Lagerfeld, but pulled off by a truly cool person. I would look like a drunken witch in this, but Rihanna is all, “What? I always wear this out to grab a Gatorade.”
