Rihanna’s Best Fashion Moments | Time

Among her many titles as the reigning multihyphenate of our time, Rihanna’s status as a fashion icon may be the one that best encapsulates the power and reach of her cultural influence. While the bad gal has always marched to the beat of her own style drum, she’s also used her love of fashion to send a message and start multiple businesses, even making history in the process.

Rihanna has always been known for her fearlessness, and that extends to her fashion sensibility. There are few celebrities that move as easily on the Met Gala red carpet in an avant garde Comme des Garçons ensemble as they do in self-referential streetwear as Rihanna does.

She’s been named a “fashion icon” by the Council of Fashion Designers of America, had fashion collaborations with the likes of Armani and Puma, been a brand ambassador for fashion houses like Dior, and launched her own fashion and beauty lines, including Savage x Fenty lingerie and athletic wear, and her now-paused luxury offering, Fenty, an LVMH-backed brand that was the first luxury line at the fashion conglomerate to be headed up by a Black woman. Which is to say, when it comes to fashion, Rihanna is a veritable powerhouse and with her biggest stage yet headlining this year’s halftime show at Super Bowl LVII, there’s no doubt that there will plenty more memorable fashion looks to look forward to. With that in mind, we’re taking a look back at Rihanna’s best fashion moments over the years.

Canyon Country Store preserves Laurel Canyon’s music history

As cars loudly race up Laurel Canyon Boulevard on their way from Hollywood to the Valley, the Canyon Country Store sits quietly in the middle of the street. Walking into the quaint, unassuming grocery store is like stepping into a time capsule, one filled with a legendary musical past.

The store is like a shrine to the neighborhood’s famous residents. Photos taken in the shop of Laurel Canyon rock stars who made it big in the 1960s, including David Crosby, Graham Nash and Joni Mitchell, dot the walls and hang above the cash register. A sign with the Doors’ iconic line “Come on baby light my fire” marks firewood bundles for sale.

The preservationist behind this “Laurel Canyon scene” is Tommy Bina, who has owned the store for roughly four decades. Dressed in a retro white turtleneck and black leather pants, he jokes, “I’m trying to bring back the spirit of Laurel Canyon.”

In the 1960s, musicians like those honored in the store flocked to the Hollywood Hills neighborhood, creating what became known as the folksy “Laurel Canyon sound.” Laurel Canyon was Los Angeles’ counterpart to San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury at the time. “Back then,” Bina, who likes to think of himself as ageless, says, “it was all about the music. And the music was so great, I just don’t want people to forget about the magical era in the canyon.” He admires the antiestablishment lifestyle embraced by the canyon’s rock stars too. He’s decorated the front patio with colorful 1960s flower-power paintings by artist and

“I Wanted to Reinvent Myself”

Longtime menswear fashion designer John Varvatos is reinventing himself with his eight-month-old brand OTD, a unisex clothing line with stores in New York and Los Angeles.

“When I started this, it was about a new story,” Varvatos tells The Hollywood Reporter about the beginnings of OTD. “I really felt like I had a new story. I wanted to reinvent myself. It was that moment during COVID that I had this kind of lightning bolt. I had this story that I’ve been playing around with, which is what this brand is.”

More from The Hollywood Reporter

OTD stands for “On This Day,” and its collections feature clothing, jewelry, footwear and accessories for all genders. With its flagship store located in the heart of Soho in New York City, the unisex line has found a second home in Los Angeles on West Hollywood’s iconic Sunset Strip in the same space where H&M previously stood. It’s the latest in Varvatos’ ongoing journey to round out his business ventures. From his own record label to tequila brand Villa One (that he started with Nick Jonas), Varvatos isn’t focused on just menswear anymore. This summer, Varvatos and Jonas launched a pop-up tequila bar on the Las Vegas Strip to promote their brand Villa One.

As for OTD, the brand is the designer’s follow-up fashion company after his eponymous menswear line filed for bankruptcy in 2020, following the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. This time around, OTD encompasses women’s, men’s and unisex styles. As the name implies, patrons are encouraged to utilize fashion and personal style to write their own story “on this day” — living in the moment, each and every day.

“Whatever the word is, I don’t really care,” Varavtos says in regard to the differences between men’s and women’s clothing. “I just
