    She is so gorgeous. I wish the bangs were longer but still, beautiful.

  • lovelydee

    She looks so gorgeous. I love her with short hair.

  • barron797

    You know she’s truly beautiful because she can pull off the short hair and still look amazingly gorgeous.

  • Honestly

    I find it funny that the vmas is missing from the vmas. The vmas is Britney gaga and Beyonce. Everybody else is just a new comer. It’s annoying. Beyonce Britney and Gaga know how to ENTERTAIN.

  • velery

    @Lala Land: its always been a classic. You forgot to mention Audrey Hepburn or Pink who has worn it throughout all her career.

  • She Looks Happy

    She looks nice with the shorter hair but the bangs should have been a bit longer.

  • Jared

    This may be weird, but she looks like a Barbadian Anne Hathaway lol. Anne Hathaway also wore a Grecian white dress at the TDKR world premiere.

  • csa

    still an ugly bitc h!!!!!!!!!!

  • princess

    finally, if stars would stop putting extensions in their hair, it would grow. your tearing your hair off, bit by bit. not to forget to mention, lots that have extensions, tend to not wash their hair as much, so disgusting. just grow your hair. were born with it, you dont have to buy hair, it grows on your head. :p

  • Ash

    She’s eh

  • Audrey

    I really am not a fan but I have to admit that it suits her

  • yahtzee

    I like this much better than all those ugly wigs although she does kind of look like she’s going bald.

  • ha!

    Sadly, she only has three strands of hair left under her new short weave.


    Absolutely gorgeous.

  • ITA

    @velery: Agree, she looks like Solange’s sister in those pics.

  • mickey

    ugly chick

  • Wilson

    @yahtzee: She suffers from early, onset female pattern baldness.

  • Wilson

    She should speak out about it. She could help a lot of women.

  • Pretty Pics

    Yep, Solange 2.0.

  • aara

    Looks a lot classier!


    I think I’m in love

  • Kathyarrb

  • Nice Job

    She should dress this way more often Rihanna can be classy and ladylike when she makes an effort.

  • alii

    one decent hair-do and shes amazing again?
    oh fickle fan girls make me laugh..
    just waiting for the pics of her and chris brown together again.

  • the_boyfriend

    too bad her opening number was such a zzzzz, did she rehearse that because it didn’t look like it.

  • Denise

    Now I like this look on her!!!

  • somali girl

    She looks stunning.

  • the_boyfriend

    and those pimples on her cheek don’t help.

  • knbl

    that hair only work on Halle. sorry.

  • knbl

    she got those pimple from doing drugs.

  • Susanna

    Needs bangs otherwise very flattering.

  • Looselipz

    Is that a shower cap?

  • KissThis

    What a classic, timeless look for her. I love it! For once, Rihanna looks elegant!

  • Ok

    She looks old and the forehead is not working and her performance was a hot mess she was trying to be too cute and she knows she can not do two things at one time so her singing and dancing was terrible… This industry has aged her and if not for all that make up she would not work..

  • ex nihilo

    with that hair and angelic face, she reminds me of someone i used to love…

  • Ne

    she took her wig off

  • zaan

    wow looks good!!!!!!

  • Marie

    That is how her mother’s hair is cut, now they have the same style, she looks cute!

  • Ri ri
