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?
As the clock struck twelve, I was on on the computer click clacking on the keyboard, checking social media, news, and mostly gossip on what’s new in the world. Despite the frequent mentions of the internet speeding up the rate at which we get news and information, I am always surprised at how much news is available in real time.Who’s That Chick (Day/Night Versions)
from Jon ALi
‘s video for Who’s That Chick
has been reshot in a night version and can be viewed side by side or pause to switch from day to night. This hasn’t been done on a full video level as far as my music video knowledge tells me, so it will be interesting to see the public reaction. The Bajan beauty switches neons and brights from the daytime to duochrome looking colors with metallic color properties, and a much darker eye and lip.
The song doubles as a Doritos endorsement (source), so for the RiRi fan who loves thinks she’s all that and a bag of chips should hit the corner store for a bag or two, so that they have a barcode at the ready to scan.
Do you like the double version? What do you think of the night and day concept?
The pros and cons of fame are known to many. Sure you have money and all the good stuff, but then there’s the lack of privacy, and constant microscope that you’re under. What you eat, text, and read becomes a matter of public speculation. So it’s only right we limit our interests to their closet. Fashion, it can be argued, is a take no prisoners

Enter into the courtroom: Rihanna. The lady in red attended the Miu Miu Spring ’11 show in London with an ankle length dress, a fur stole (probably faux). As is given with RiRi, she had her fab red hair (pinned back with a sideswept bang), bold accessories (yellow hoops with embellishments), fiery red nail polish, and pumps.
But the socks! Sure she picked a dress with a red, white, and black, and sure, all the red (hair, lips, nails, heels) extras pull out the red in the dress, but there was no need to pull the blue from the dress as well. Most certainly not with socks. Almost looks like Dorothy went to see the Wizard.
Sorry RiRi. The judgement for me is very much guilty.
What’s your verdict? Do or don’t? Guilty or innocent?
Lest you thought Miss Riri was all about partying and catching sun, you will be pleased to hear that Rihanna’s new album; Loud, is set to hit shelves November 16, 2010. This is her fifth studio album.
The cover for the album has been released and is featuring a sultry Riri with fire red hair and lips sporting a demure look. I love this shot because quite honestly, you can only take so many shoots of spikes and leather before you want more sugar than spice. The songs will no doubt have some flavor to them, with the first and second singles “Only Girl (In the World)” and “What’s My Name?” She filmed the latter in NY this past week, check out after the jump for some footage from Music Video Life.

Head over to Amazon to check out the singles and to pre-order the album.
