Rihanna didn’t become a superstar by playing it safe — so why start now?
The pop star went full-on fashion plate and left little to the imagination with her chest-baring Coachella getup. RiRi defied the heat in a caramel-hued sheer dress belted at the navel and matching oversize suede Ugg boots running up the thigh.
“Putting on Uggs is like putting your foot in a warm pot of butter, and I thought why not elevate that and immerse your full legs!” Y/Project designer Glenn Martens has said about the dramatic footwear. “So we decided to design an Ugg boot that climbs up to the crotch and covers the whole leg.”
Well, Rihanna is sold. Fans were mixed about her avant-garde look, which she paired with a Gucci headband tucked into her side-swept updo.
Though the singer called her outfit “extra AF,” some weren’t so sure.
“U lookin’ like a kangaroo,” read one snarky Instagram comment.
“I hate this outfit,” griped another. “You’re amazing but sack the stylist that pulled this.”
“This really fits the saying she would look good in a brown paper bag,” joked another commenter.
Others disagreed and could only express awe for their style icon.
To quote one smitten follower: “We are not worthy.”
