From Runway to Rihanna’s Way: See How the Star Puts Her Spin on Fashion’s Trickiest Looks

Rihanna—what can’t the woman pull off? Her sartorial power is so great, so unapologetic in its outrageousness, she can make being nearly nude (you know, except for a mesh encasing made of something like 200,000-plus Swarovski crystals) the most glamorous look ever. So when you factor in actual clothing, you know to expect the wildly unexpected.

A leather jacket isn’t just a leather jacket, but a cape draped over a Princess Diana tee with cut-offs and denim chaps. She isn’t going to simply slip on a floral-print dress and call it a day. No, Rihanna’s going to layer it over a gold chain harness and style it with giant hoops and platform brogues. And for a night out? Any one of fall’s transitional jackets won’t cut it. In Rihanna’s world, a cool breeze is the perfect excuse to break out a giant fur heart-shaped Saint Laurent cape, one of the most memorable looks from Hedi Slimane’s final collection for the brand.

All of this only serves as proof that Rihanna can take any look—the trickiest, the most intimidating, the seemingly most unwearable—and make it her own. Thus, we present a runway-to-Rihanna-way study: a side-by-side comparison of her “real-world” application of fashion’s greatest hits.

15 Stunning Backstage Photos from the Chanel Haute Couture Show

Warning: Brace yourself for an overwhelming amount of prettiness. Couture Fashion Week may be over, but these behind-the-scenes images from backstage at Chanel Haute Couture’s spring 2017 show are so over-the-top incredible, it’s worth the revisit.

In case you forgot: Lily-Rose Depp had the honor of being the Chanel Couture bride. And while the sweeping pale-pink dress that featured a mille-feuille of tiered ruffles was stunning from afar, it’s—surprise!—even better up close (and a thousand times more in person). Also beautiful up close: feather detailing that was painstakingly embroidered on one by one, and the thousands of shiny, glittery paillettes and beads. In short, it’s a lot of very pretty people wearing a lot of very pretty clothes. Take a look and see for yourself.

Bella Hadid Hits the Runway at Christian Dior’s Fall Couture Show

While Bella Hadid’s big sister Gigi spent her holiday weekend hitting the shores of Rhode Island at gal pal Taylor Swift’s star-studded Fourth of July bash, 19-year-old Bella continued her milestone romp across the couture shows in Paris.

On Monday, the brunette beauty put forward her catwalk prowess in Christian Dior’s fall 2016 couture show—hands down one of the week’s hottest tickets. She stood out among the dozens of models in a one-of-a-kind black dress with a deep-V neckline, oversize shoulders, intricate embroidery, and matching, comfortable gladiator-like flat thong sandals. Her hair featured a slicked -back center part and the new face of Dior Makeup also sported a bold cat-eye.

Back in June, the star joined fellow model Kendall Jenner at Givenchy’s show in Paris, where the two made headlines with their short pixie-style ‘dos as they lent their struts to the brand’s spring 2017 menswear runway.

Keep up the good work, Bella!

Kendall, Gigi, and Bella Chowed Down on Cheeseburgers After Walking the VS Runway

Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are true to their word. After dieting and logging long hours at the gym for the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the BFFs brought VS newbie Bella Hadid to their favorite burger joint in Paris for a well-deserved indulgence.

Jenner reserved a table at Ferdi and had an assortment of burgers and cocktails as she waited for her fellow models and their friends. She must have been ravenous—because she didn’t hold back on digging into a cheeseburger. “Kendall, we’ve been here for like three minutes,” Bella joked in a Snapchat clip of Jenner holding her already half-eaten dinner.

“Ferdi is our family favorite!” the 21-year-old previously wrote of the restaurant on her app under a list of her and Gigi’s fave burger joints around the globe. “I know we don’t typically think of France when we think of burgers, but the cheese-to-meat ratio is perfect.”

After she finished her burger, it was time for Round 2: A ramekin filled with mac and cheese. Jenner chowed down on her cheesy meal while Gigi sipped a cocktail in the background.

Finally, more friends arrived in time to do some carbo-loading of their own before they headed off to a club for a night filled with dancing.

See Every Look from the Proenza Schouler Fall 2017 Show

Hot off the press from New York Fashion Week: Proenza Schouler is giving us the lowdown on what to wear via their ready-to-wear collection for fall 2017. What does that entail, you ask? Well, for starters, it includes pleats and pleather.

In their last showing at NYFW, Proenza Schouler introduced deconstructed suits and wrap dresses with zero wrapping required. Their apparent MO this season: Take a workwear classic and amp it up with, say, a leather rerendering and metal studs for texture. Like a CEO gone rogue.

In addition to their signature asymmetrical cuts and slashed dresses, Proenza Schouler gave us logos, sporty eveningwear, and clutches made to be actually clutched.

Here, the Proenza Schouler ready-to-wear fall 2017 collection in full.

Should You Wear Leggings as Pants? Priyanka Chopra Weighs In

Joseph Altuzarra, the master of sensible shirtdresses and pencil skirts cut with dangerously sexy thigh-high slits, has given us yet another wonderfully contrast-happy collection to rave about. For spring 2017, the designer took a youthful, Chiquita-esque turn with cutesy sequin-embroidered cherries, pineapples, lemons, and blueberries, but anchored the fruit medley with python, tailored blazers, and restricting pencils. “I wanted the collection to feel happy, vibrant, and erotically charged,” read the brand’s show notes.

But the best thing to come out of the show? Celebrity endorsement from Priyanka Chopra (our August cover girl!), who sat front row (outfitted in a bubblegum pink rib-knit dress, courtesy of Altuzarra, of course) and is already a fan of next spring’s offering. “I thought it was beautiful—it was feminine and pretty,” she enthuses after the show. “I love the florals, and I especially love the cherry-print stockings. And I also loved the little chiffon dresses—so flirty and lovely.”

Eventually, talk of next season’s fashion fell back to present-day trends, which of course, ended with her very honest (read: refreshing) opinion on four of the most popular street-style trends we’ve seen around:

Wearing leggings as pants: “I like leggings, as long as they’re not weird and crotchet-y.”

Treating your bra as a shirt: “No. I’m a little shy, and I’d prefer a shirt. I think a bra should be kept hidden, layered underneath.”

Having an oversized shirt double as a dress: “Love it—as long as I have a belt to cinch.”

Eschewing bras altogether: “If it’s in the vicinity of my bedroom, then yes—or, as long as people don’t know.”

See the Best Looks from the Loewe Fall 2017 Runway Show 

The Loewe 2017 Fall runway show was a display of brilliant manipulation, incorporating varied textures, colors, and forms to result in pieces that were femininely edgy. Floor length dresses were cut and deconstructed, flirty fabrics like satin were mixed with masculine corduroy, and multiple fabrics merged into single pieces to create new life to statment pieces. Below, our favorite looks from the show.

See the Hottest Photos from Backstage at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is upon us, and while the runway vibe is sexy as ever, the atmosphere backstage is far more relaxed. “This is the one time of the year that we actually got to hang out,” Alessandra Ambrosio told Beauterage of spending time with her fellow Angels.

“We had four days to hang out and it really feels like a girls’ trip or when you’re in college with your friends. There are no boys around. It’s only girls and we can have fun and not worry about anything else.”

Between getting primped together and taking selfies backstage, Stella Maxwell totally agrees. “I think everyone’s really excited. I can see the smiles on everyone’s faces. We’re all like gossiping,” she told Beauterage. “It’s nice to just hang out with our friends.”

While in years past the girls all sported similar-length waves, this year they’re wearing their natural hair, and Kendall Jenner is so on board. “The cool thing about this show is that they wanted everyone to feel really good and they didn’t mind the girls looking more different than each other than they did in previous years,” Jenner said. “It’s cool. It adds a new twist to it.”

While she was excited about the new hairstyles, she was anxious about wearing her lingerie. “I’m so excited, and nervous. Last year I had two looks that were very covered in certain spots, but this year I have one look that is kind of covered and one that is pretty exposed so I’m a little nervous about that!” Jenner told us.

To that, sixteen-time VS Fashion Show vet Ambrosio has some advice: “Enjoy, it goes really fast. In the blink of an eye it’s over,” she said.

Jessica Alba Got Faux Freckles at Tory Burch—Plus 6 Other Things to Know About the Show

New York Fashion Week starts early and ends late, and if you don’t have the stamina (or an IV drip of caffeine), then the struggle can get real pretty quickly. But not even the most staunchly morning-averse night owl would miss Tory Burch’s 9 a.m. show—one of the earliest on the calendar. Happy and vibrant, her shows never fail to deliver saturated colors and bold prints, making it arguably one of the best ways to start the day. Factor in a cool new location and an even cooler front row, and there’s no question about it. Keep reading to find out everything that happened at Tory Burch’s spring 2017 show.

1. After seasons of staging her shows at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, the designer switched things up and went for the brand sparkling new Whitney Museum location that opened last year in the Meatpacking District.

2. Tory Burch outfitted the models in matching Tory Sport track suits during prep time.

3. Honest Beauty makeup was used to give models a natural glow, complete with faux freckles, which were drawn on with the brand’s True Velvet Eyeliner in Cocoa—a look that Jessica Alba also had done backstage prior to the show. “Look,” she told Beauterage Fashion Director Melissa Rubini in the front row. “Freckles!”

Who wouldn’t love a little touch-up before the show? @honest_beauty’s @jessicaalba joined all the models backstage at @toryburch’s #SS17 show, where makeup artist @diane.kendal used the brand’s True Velvet Eyeliner in Cocoa to give the beauties faux freckles. ✨💄🌸 #NYFW

4. Beyoncé’s protégés Chloe and Halle Bailey (aka the coolest girls around) also took their seats in the front row, both clad in Tory Sport gear.

5. The show opened with “Massachusetts” by the Bee Gees, but quickly segued into Beyoncé, at which point, Chloe and Halle started dancing in their seats. “The playlist was amazing—everything was poppin’,” Chloe said afterwards, while Halle began to sing: “They don’t love you like I do.”

6. Taylor Hill and Hailey Baldwin were among the big-name models cast in the show.

7. The spring 2017 looks included darling preppy cardigans, sweeping split-seamed pants, and a fun color palette of kelly green, bubblegum pink, and bright orange. “The collection was absolutely amazing—I love the colors she uses, the oranges were so beautiful, it [was] fun and flirty, and different at the same time, which I love,” Chloe said. And their favorite look? “The two-piece that was orange,” they both said simultaneously, laughing.
