Rihanna is the master of making fashion statements. Remember her ‘naked dress‘ at last year’s CFDAs? Or what about her brilliant yellow cape at this year’s Met Gala? Or all those other times she wore all sorts of crazy, iconic, attention-grabbing things? It seems like almost every day we’re treated to a new fashion moment, courtesy of Rihanna. And leave it to her to make a statement without even saying a word – but rather, by wearing several of them. She was spotted out and about in NYC rocking a red ‘do and a sparkly, backless gown by DI$COUNT UNIVER$E (by Cami James and Nadia Napreychikov) which read like an angry message to an ex-boyfriend/friend/boss: “YOU WILL NEVER OWN ME” (on the front); and “I WILL NEVER FEAR YOU” on the back. Oh? Oh! She paired it with an equally sparkly, giant hand handbag, also by the Aussie brand.
The brand features a lot of printed and beaded dresses and handbags and accessories like Western style cuffs and leather harnesses. Right up Rihanna’s alley. These designs are not for the faint of fashion heart, but they are pretty reasonably priced, especially for the level of detail in them. You can get a beaded dress starting at $249; a bag starting at $99, and a ton of other fun items for less than $100!
