Hair Styles 2011: Rihanna with new flowers hair style 2011: Rose and poppy headband worn on X-Factor by the R&B Diva/singer songwriter, Rihanna.Style icon and two-steps-ahead trendsetter, Rihanna, wore flowers in her hair when she appeared on last night’s X Factor results show.
The singer-songwriter and R&B diva, known for her outrageous style, added girl-power to flower-power, with a headband in silk roses and poppies to match her mini-puffball dress, by the London designer William Tempest.
The oversized floral arrangement was perfectly balanced on the star’s new flaming- red hair as she performed her latest single ‘Only Girl (In the World)’ from the album ”Loud”.
The look was a combination of Frida Kahlo and Madonna-as-Evita.
Kahlo, the famous Mexican artist, perfected a multi-colourful gipsy look and was just as known for the flowers in her hair as she was for her mono-brow. Madonna dressed her hair with flowers, by John Galliano, to attend the Los Angeles and New York film premieres of ‘Evita’, in which she starred, in 1996.
Now it’s the turn of Rihanna, rumoured to be house-hunting in London, to be pick of the bunch. The Bajan singer seems to be aware of how powerful her style influence can be as she is also rumored to be starting her own company, Rihanna Entertainment, which will merge all of her businesses including fashion, music, film, fragrance, and book ventures.
Flowers and floral head-pieces are a good tip for dressing-up as the Christmas party season kicks in. If you do not have the courage to go as blooming big as Rihanna, Dorothy Perkins and Monsoon have smaller, less look-at-me versions.
If you want to create your own style, head to V.V.Rouleaux in London’s Sloane Square, SW1. Its large selection will make you feel as though you are in a flower market.
