You’ve seen her transform from Island Princess to pop sensation, an avant garde fashion icon for her generation. Rihanna, despite the drama, is a true Style Star.
RadarOnline.com got a chance to speak with the woman behind her image, stylist extraordinaire Mariel Haenn, who has created singular looks for the likes of Riri, Ciara, Jay-Z and Jada Pinkett.
Haenn gave us some insight on what to expect from Rihanna as she prepares to release her follow up record to the smash Good Girl Gone Bad.
“It’s definitely going to be Rihanna in the raw state we’ve seen her in lately,” Haenn says of the album artwork, shooting next week in Berlin.
“Though she’s an icon right now, this crazy super glam, we’re going to see her being real–human.”
While naturally details are mum on the goods Rihanna will be sporting, Haenn is jetting off to Paris for Fashion Week with Ri, where the two will draw inspiration from Spring 2010 collections. (Hint: both the gals love Gareth Pugh).
When Rihanna is off the clock, strength is a central theme in both her style and her personal life.
“She hates too soft and girly,” Heann says, “she still plays with her girly side, but there’s always a tough piece somewhere, with edge.”
