J'Die: Rihanna's Costumes in "Rude Boy"

Zandile Blay

Do we even need to hear the song? The many outfits rocked by Rihanna in her upcoming video for "Rude Boy" are loud enough. Not that that's a bad thing -- I'd gladly shimmy, shake or strut to my local bodega in any one of these looks, particularly the black and white number she is rocking on the zebra. This study in "banjee-realness" (those who speak the "Queens English" as taught by my fellow PAPER peep Nicky Balestrieri know what I mean) was carried out by Ri-Ri's longtime stylist Mariel Haenn. Stay tuned for the video which debuts tomorrow -- right in time for Fashion Week.
