It’s an iconic image – Marilyn Monroe, wearing a white mink fur coat as she shines in front of the camera. For years, movie star Marilyn Monroe was the fashion icon, not only in the world of fur, but in every aspect of style and glamour. In the years since, countless starlets have strived to capture the same glamorous and stunning look as Miss Monroe (many of which failed). Now, there may finally be someone worthy enough to be put on the same fur fashion pedestal as the 60’s icon. This woman comes not from the silver screen, but from the world of music. Her name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty or, as the world knows her better, Rihanna.
The Barbadian pop singer, age 27, has taken the world of music by storm in the last ten years. With hits like “Diamonds” and “Don’t Stop the Music”, it’s no wonder she has become a music icon. More surprisingly, however, is how she has also transcended into the world of fashion. At this year’s Met Gala, the singer turned heads when she showed up in a beautiful, almost princess-like yellow cape adorned with a beautiful fur trim. While some found the garment a little too flashy, others wanted to know where they could get their own!
This is not the first time Rihanna has been spotted using fur in her wardrobe. There have been several occasions where the paparazzi have spotted the icon in things like fur jackets, fur stoles, fur scarves, and even fur-hooded leather jackets!. Rihanna has never shied away from taking risks and being “out there” with her wardrobe outfits; she was seen in 2013 rocking a bright pink fur jacket with a checkerboard trim. Not too long ago, she was seen with an oversized fur collar around an Indian-pattern vest. Whether you think she’s had more fashion brilliancies or a fashion blunders, one thing is clear – Rihanna is the new queen of the fur garment.
