Celebrity Style Bust- Rihanna, the girl of too many things but one good Givenchy Antigona bag

I’ll Have What She’s Having (from the waist up): Rihanna manages to ruin a few very good pieces with some dang tacky tights and a girdle for a dress. There, I said it!

Rihanna was sporting some super chic fashion elements on her 3AM return to her hotel after her concert in Paris.

There’s the well-proportioned floppy fedora (unlike that over-sized Kim Kardashian monstrosity), the covetable cropped jacket, and the to-die-for Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci “Antigona” bag… all in classic black.

But, what is going on with those nasty sheer thigh highs, and the peachy body con skirt in the color of an old school girdle?

Look, I get that it’s 3AM after a concert and she’s out for a night on the town, but  this is not her first style offense… please look at the expression of her bodyguard as it is priceless. But not as priceless as the fact that Rihanna has beaucoupbucks to be able to have someone figure out how to put her

together  and she consistently throws a tacky monkey wrench into otherwise stylish pieces.

I’m not a fan of those scalloped edge stay-up thigh high stockings but sure some of you may.

To make a thigh high work with the rest of Rihanna’s outfit, it starts by ditching the peachy dress that’s far too pale and light to work with a heavier cropped jacket and wintery hat.

I’d swap the light-colored dress out for a black or more tonal and dark mini to create a longer and leaner monochromatic line that is less jarring to the eye than all the visual breaks caused by too many jarring accessories.

As her booties are on the heavy side, instead of wearing dressier sheer stay up stockings, I’d try a more matte and super opaque thigh high to continue the line; Hanes Silk Reflections Blackout Thigh Highs are a great and affordable option.

Still digging the Givenchy Antigona Bag? Me too!
