Rihanna for River Island – Hit or Miss?

We all love Rihanna, with her fierce sense of style and body to die for, every girl wants to be her. So when word got round that she was designing a collection for River island, we waited with baited breath.

I couldn’t wait for the sharp tailoring, studs and spikes, acid wash denim and sexy bodycon dresses with a nod to 90’s grunge.

What they came up with wasn’t quite what I was expecting. Take a look below…

I’m a bit disappointed.

Ok yes I can imagine Rihanna in the little lycra dresses, and even the crop tops and thigh split skirt. But the collection is just missing something for me, it just doesn’t have that edge, maybe it’s a lack of accessories? That girl does like her bling. Maybe if Rihanna was wearing the clothes herself I would feel different? I don’t know, it just seems to be missing something fierce and sexy that should be there, and I expected it to be there.

What do you think??

    The models’ hair, I guess. Cut it, crop it, colour it would add more funk like Rihanna… instead of that long straight hair. Just my thought!

    I love Rihanna’s style. But this collection leaves ALOT to be desired. My vote: MISS big MISS~!
