Love or hate her music, pop star Rihanna does know how to get tongues wagging thanks to her bold style. In a new interview with Vogue magazine (on which Rihanna is also the cover model), Rihanna dishes on her style and gives tips, including her personal philosophy on wearing bras. No wonder she has started so many rumors of breast augmentation that we have begun to lose count.
While some stars are begging and pleading to get on the cover of Vogue magazine, long considered The fashion bible, Rihanna seems to be a favorite. The pop star is currently covering the March issue, making it her third time posing for Vogue. Inside the pages, Rihanna dishes on some of her thoughts on style, including not wearing a bra unless you’re wearing only a bra.
“If I’m wearing a top, I don’t wear a bra. If I’m wearing a bra, I just wear a bra,” the 25 year old explains.
Although images of the pop star posing sans anything but bikini bottoms seems to belie that statement. Still, it does explain the rumors of breast augmentation that Rihanna has faced since her rise to fame. When wearing revealing shirts without a bra, Rihanna’s breasts look to be natural, whereas when she sports a push up bra the rumors of implants seem to be reignited.
While Rihanna’s breasts seem to be larger than they were when she first became popular, it could be a result of continual development combined with weight gain. In fact, Rihanna has bemoaned the effect that fluctuating weight has on her body in the past.
In an interview with another fashion magazine a few years back, Rihanna revealed that she was happy to have dropped some pounds, but missed having a fuller rear end.
“I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now,” the newly size-zero singer says.
Rihanna’s thoughts on when to wear a bra probably work best for pop stars and not those in a more corporate field, especially as the tops that Rihanna wears without a bra can also be pretty sheer and revealing. Although she also says that she favors menswear trends as well, although knowing Rihanna she probably manages to flaunt more than a little skin even in men’s clothing.
She tells Vogue, “I love baggy things. I wear men’s clothes, men’s shoes, oxfords, creepers,” she says of her style. “When I was 13 or 14, I didn’t want to wear what my mom wanted me to wear. I was very much a boy in my style, my demeanor. All my friends were guys. I loved things that boys did. I loved being easy with my clothes. I loved wearing hats and scarves and snapbacks on my head. It was my way of rebelling. I wanted to dress like my brother. After a while, it was just easier for Mom to dress us both the same. We wore the same jeans, the same T-shirts.”
