OK, Rihanna, what’s back in style: head-to-toe python, the bucket hat, or both? The songstress and entrepreneur stepped out in Sydney, Australia, to celebrate the anniversary of her Fenty Beauty line, and she chose a memorable look for a memorable evening. Rihanna threw it back to the early aughts in an Atelier Versace combo consisting of a strapless minidress and cap, but the Christian Louboutin ankle-strap pumps and matching mini bag were her own additions.
The all-out animal print immediately reminded us of Jennifer Lopez’s blue Dsquared2 ensemble from 2014, which she wore to an American Idol photocall. But the trend even harks back to the ’90s, when the Spice Girls were sporting the snake pattern on crop top and bell-bottom pant sets, along with lingerie slips.
If, like us, you appreciate a good throwback, whether it’s on the carpet or the street, you’ll love admiring Rihanna’s latest — accessorized with diamonds from Chopard — and comparing it to J Lo’s similar moment. And if all that nostalgia sparks enough excitement, you just might want to tap into this whole python thing with a new dress too.
