As far as fashion is concerned, Rihanna has always been ahead of the curve - able to dabble in trends in a genuinely fearless manner. Wackiness, in many ways, is central to her style influence.
Revisit Rihanna's most head-turning looks, below.

4. That sunshine-yellow dress
The vibrant gown that Rihanna wore to the Met Gala in 2015 will go down in history as one of the best looks the event has ever witnessed. Rihanna found the designer of the gown on the internet. It took a whole year to make this beautiful shiny gown for Rihanna

8. The wear anywhere dressing gown
