Everytime I think I can safely go on a Rihanna
hiatus, I have another reason to repeat her name. That’s a killer marketing and PR team for ya.
The singer has a video out for Te Amo. The video is super racy and not showing any signs of going back to the tame and sweet. It’s a perfect video to rev up your wardrobe though and break out of the bulky layers and cozy knits. Look for lace, leather, and if you can’t stray until about April or so, break out a killer red or orange lip.
Self proclaimed rebel flower, Rihanna had images of her fresh perfume debut earlier this week. The scent, Reb’l Fleur will be hitting shelves nationwide later in the year (or early next year rather). With so many big names lending a hand to the perfume industry, I’m surprised Riri hasn’t done this sooner.
p.s. I’ve been a little tied up with the holidays and taking care of bills and such on my end, so excuse the pauses. MOJ will be back to it’s regular scheduling by the 25th!
Rihanna originally gained fame when she started changing up her hair. It became a once a month event that the tabloids ate up. A bob! Red! Without confirmation on whether the songstress enjoyed it as much as her audience, the internet is overrunning with images and how-tos.
Sure I’ll declare a RiRi diet shortly, but this was just too good. Following her long extensions to her statement red crop, the star arrived at the American Music Awards (inset) with an auburn tint to her hair, save for several bright red strands peeking out around her neck, and, wait for it, CURLS! Being a curly girl myself, I’m always excited to have a Hollywood member rock the style.
Are you on team straight or team curly?
Rihanna has had quite a travel schedule as her album has hit shelves recently. There’s all over the US, London, and most recently Madrid. Sometimes she graces different continents with each coming day.

Recently, her stylings have been both highs and lows for me. Her low was in Madrid, when she paired high waist shorts, knee high knit stockings, and oxford heels with an oversize shearling (check out my best picks for the trend here) coat. The coat is way out of proportion and swallows the usually fashionable gal, making her look of a size that she definitely isn’t.
The win was her interesting pairing of a side cut-out heather grey corset with an architectural mini skirt. Her neutral suede heels had a thinner than thin heel, and just like that, I was in love. The skirt looked like it needed more upkeep than just simple wear – it needed two hands, one in each pocket, to get the overall effect. Once Riri got that down, the look was flawless. Do you agree?
Whose style do you like?
During 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?!
Check out other celebs who found similar inspiration, and the video of the X Factor performance after the jump.
Kristen Wiig did an inspirational photo shoot for V Magazine featuring looks of Carmen Miranda and Frieda Kahlo. It was a refreshing change from lingerie clad gals with lashes and lip glosses in stock.

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?
Herve Leger is a brand synonymous for bandage dresses, starlets, and every it name you can imagine. The dress shape and tightness has been replicated but never duplicated, and thus we still drool over every new style with each season.
Rihanna and Khloe Kardashian wore the Fall 2010 white dress with lace up details recently to display their love to the brand (and their curves). Riri wore the style out to celebrate Katy Perry’s upcoming nuptials, whereas Khloe wore it to celebrate her anniversary celebrations. Funny that the color worked into the wedding theme unwittingly (or was it?).
Bring out the scorebooks my dear Ladies and Gents of the Jury. Who did it best?
Sorry folks, when it rains, it pours! Still on my Rihanna information high, I’m studying the photos of the lady in red exiting Madeo restaurant in West Hollywood.

She’s keeping the makeup low key (something suggested with fiery red locks such as those) with a light glow all over the face, and some blush and highlighter by the cheeks. Her lids are sporting a color that could be achieved by using the highlighter, to combat shadows and add a bit of shimmer. Her waterline is lightly lined to create depth, and her lips have a sheer pastel pink wash over them.
Do you like the natural look or do you prefer all glam all the time?
