Rihanna Graces The July Cover Of Elle Magazine – The Fashion Breakdown

June 9, 2010
By Sheryl Blasnik


For me pop sensation Rihanna has always been a fashion icon.  She is a 22 year old young woman who has proven she is not afraid to take risks and the benefits are easy to see as she has continues to rise to stardom.  Rihanna is a fashion chameleon changing her hairstyle and wardrobe as often as most of us change our socks.  I was excited to see that ELLE MAGAZINE had asked Rihanna to grace the cover of their July issue.  The wardrobe styling was hot and steamy much like a July day.  For the cover this beauty from Barbados is wearing Balmain’s Fall 2010 sequin mini dress.

During the shoot Rihanna opened up about her new love, L.A. Dodger outfielder Matt Kemp.  “I have such a chaotic life, but at the end of the day, that is just my peace,” she says of spending time with Kemp. “It keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family.”
