As she made her way through the crowd, body guards et al... waving at her fans, stopping for an occasional photograph or an autograph, smiling pleasantly at her loyal fans I saw a red head strolling across the mob and then eventually, backstage (where she took another few gazillion years to come out from) But when she did though, I was completely awestruck. This was a girl who's life was so publicly laid on TV for millions to watch, as she was left battered and bruised by her ex boyfriend, this was the girl wearing that funny one shoulder dress by Victor and Rolf. This was the girl who came out with those million hits, this was the girl who rubs shoulders with the worlds most famous and powerful individuals. This girl, 22 years old, standing right in front of me, was here, live. Not on TV, but live. It was surreal and fairly different from anyone else I'd seen before.
Dressed in a flame red skirt by Kos and a grey bustier top by Zambesi with grey suede Big Lips heels by Christian Louboutin. While otherwise I'd consider this to be waaayyy to coordinated. Rihanna seemed to be able to pull it off, and pull it off VERY well indeed. The red skirt went with the colour of her hair that she tied up with a polka dotted head band. And the grey bustier went very well with the shoes she wore. She looked- amazing.
Here's a few pictures I took while I could.
I still can't get over just how young she is and how much she's achieved... It's truly quite inspiring. For me.
The Christmas lights she came to turn on.
Walking in. (This is just about the time when the school girls next to me tore their vocal cords open, with all that screaming.)
You'll hear the girls screaming, ignore the noise and you'll do well. Hah.
