It’s never a good idea to get too attached to Rihanna or her flair; for one, she just seems like a heartbreaker, no? And also, because whether it’s her trademark style, her tattoos, or the color of her hair, as soon as you do, she’ll switch it up without warning and in the blink of an eye.
We’ve seen her tresses take on the character of a chameleon, changing from jet black to platinum blonde to red hot, and now—almost as a slap in the face to how old she’s not—she’s willingly chosen to go gray while the rest of us face the matter with panic and plucking.
In true Rihanna nature, she debuted the new ‘do on Instagram with a series of pictures—each featuring less clothing than the last, of course—and a few choice words.
“New color ice grey ish, call it #Brrr”
“‘Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day’ #brrr”
“Grey is the new black! Blondies, it’s quiet for y’all! #brrr”
She also used the photo-sharing platform to break the news on her fourth fragrance, “Rogue.”
She posted a pic from its Mario Sorrenti-shot campaign in which she’s, naturally, topless. On display are only her heels, high-waisted bottoms and, since it’s always fun to play ‘Where’s Waldo?’ with her ink, the Nefertiti bust and Arabic writing on her ribcage, as well as the gun-shaped falcon on her ankle. She wrote, “#ROGUE #byRihanna campaign image!! For the ladies! Men’s coming soon…”
According to WWD, the scent is described as having a “flirty, sensual Oriental” blend of lemon blossom, cyclamen, jasmine, rose, plum, and suede over a musky base of woods, patchouli, vanilla, and amber” and will be available at Macy’s, Dillard’s, and Belk in September, with prices ranging from $18 for a roller ball to $69 for a 4.2-oz. bottle.
