Rihanna’s Fashion Awards Cornrows Are a Red Carpet Win

Rihanna switches hairstyles almost daily, but when she adopts a new approach, she does so in the boldest manner possible. Case in point: her latest quick change at tonight’s British Fashion Awards. Nominated for one of the night’s key awards, Rihanna arrived at Royal Albert Hall sporting a mint green mini-dress from Fenty and freshly braided cornrows. After she wore flowing waves while on vacation in Barbados, the star and her hairstylist, Yusef Williams, switched things up for the big event, opting for sleek mid-length braids that cascaded down her back. Accented by gelled baby hairs and a wealth of diamonds, the look was regal and refreshing.

Of course, no Rihanna ensemble is complete without a final touch of glamour, and her neutral-toned smokey eye, nude lip, and seafoam manicure provided just that. Makeup artist Priscilla Ono added individualist touches to amp up the otherwise subtle makeup—90s-style dark lip liner always does the trick—but the braids served as the look’s focal point. A beautiful compliment to her pastel Fenty finery, they had Rihanna looking like a winner before the award ceremony even began.
