The Most Iconic Rihanna Outfits of All Time

Bow down.

Put simply, Rihanna is an icon. Her influence spans across every major genre in pop culture, from music to beauty to fashion. When Rihanna founded her label Fenty in 2019, she partnered with French luxury conglomerate LVMH to do so, becoming the first house established by the group since 1987. She also became the first woman of color to have a label under the LVMH umbrella. Rihanna's red carpet outfits have also gone down in fashion history: Who could forget the Guo Pei gown she wore to the Met Gala in 2015, or the sheer "naked dress" she wore to the CFDA awards in 2014? But what makes Rihanna a style icon is the fact that she doesn't wait for galas or award shows to take fashion risks—her street style is just as enviable and impressive. A fashion chameleon, Rihanna isn't afraid to experiment, and loves to take pieces straight off the runway and mix them up to make the look her own. Flip through the archives, and you can see that Rihanna's look has evolved over time—but one thing has remained constant is that she's always been true to herself, embracing fashion in tandem her own sense of personal style.
