Rihanna is undoubtedly a style icon – she can wear anything, from men’s underwear to almost nothing at all, but she always owns it and works it! Last year she was spotted shopping in Los Angeles, rocking a denim-on-denim look (also known as a Canadian Tuxedo) and subsequently sparked a new interest in distressed denim skirts.
She paired a Current/Elliott The Perfect Shirt with Acne’s Fine Trash Distressed Denim Skirt, and accessorized with edgy extras like a black leather baseball cap, a Juliette Jake Wrap Around Clutch in light blue, cuff bracelets and nude Céline pumps. To top off her look, she wore a vintage Chanel pearl brooch.
Beyonce‘s status as a fashion icon was recently questioned by the New York Times, who said that “Beyoncé hasn’t moved, or influenced, the direction of fashion writ large in the way that, say, Rihanna, the winner of this year’s CFDA Fashion Icon award, has.” So it’s ironic that a week after this piece was written, Beyoncé stepped out in an almost identical outfit to Rihanna‘s. Beyoncé posted a pic on her website and on Instagram, posing in a denim jacket, white tee and Frame Denim Le High Pencil Skirt in Carlyle, looking a lot like Rihanna last year. Queen Bey also accessorized with Chanel brooches, cuff bracelets and nude shoes: Christian Louboutin Follies 100 lace and satin pumps.
Coincidence? Yes, celebrities are caught wearing the same thing all the time. But the timing is interesting.
So which pop diva do you think wore this look best? Rihanna or Beyonce?
