Rihanna has a Carmen moment

MyOwnJudgeDuring her recent visit to London, Rihanna graced the stages of X Factor with a performance of her new single Only Girl (In The World). She got on stage with a pale pink bustier dress with an exaggerated ruffle/flounce skirt half giving everyone a peek at bubble bloomers.

Her red hair was a perfect contrast to her green eyeshadow and burgundy lips, but best of all, it was a great setting for her garden of a headpiece. As I looked over the pictures, it finally came to me. She’s rocking a mixture of Madonna and Carmen Miranda. Do you see it?!

If your Halloween partying is yet to be over and you want to copy the look, all you need is a long skirt, a peasant top, layer a couple bead necklaces, and large earrings. The look can go off without a hitch with or without a headwrap (not necessarily gold either). Keep the makeup as loud as the flowers in your head and keep the spirits high!

Trick or treating come to a close? Keep the costume in mind for next year. In the meantime, check out the performance:

Like it? Love it?
