The Barbadian artist surprised me as soon as I laid eyes on her performance – she carried herself with such a cool attitude without even trying. Thousands of screaming fans echoed through the stadium as she arrived on stage. She wore one outfit, yes, one, and sang with a great passion. Her old school jacket added to the aura she so visibly carried across the stage and onto the big screen. Her voice sounded like something that you’re supposed to hear on the radio, making it sound somewhat like a dream - rather than a memory.
Rihanna’s “Diamonds World Tour” was one of the events on my calendar for this year. With an entire term with the goal to pass the ever-frightening exams, her concert deemed to be a highlight for my insufferable boredom. My friends, with two on their feet and a third in a wheelchair, and I made our way to the soccer stadium in Green point, Cape Town in order to set our sights on Rihanna – with admiration of course.
It was a night to remember.
Not only has my friend lost her wallet, we got to see the one and only Rihanna - the singer that has basically rocked any and every hairstyle known to mankind. Her style projects a cool character that is perfectly able to carry any look; be it grunge or classy. She turns out to be my style star of the moment.
Riri even teamed up with MAC cosmetics before arriving in South Africa. In order to launch the summer’s hottest make-up must-haves, Rihanna collaborated with MAC and created The RiRi Heart MAC collection. From deep plum lipsticks to brown liners and copper colours, a truly unique collection is created.
