The Best and Worst of Rihanna's Red Carpet Fashion

Rihanna has made style headlines time and time again, but i'm making the semi-controversial choice to sort out her best and worst red carpet moments. You may not agree with me, and I'm putting her Guo Pei dress from the 2015 Met Gala above so that I don't have to take sides on this one. Either way, Rihanna is a goddess that can rock basically anything, as we'll soon find with her weirder sartorial choices for the red carpet.

Best

Rihanna shone at the 2014 Met Gala in this Stella McCartney cropped top and skirt. The bare back and midriff are both sexy and surprising in contrast with the covered arms, legs, and neck, but the look showcases her killer figure nonetheless. I love that flash of skin against a buttery smooth sea of white fabric, and her quirky and tousled hair keeps it fun.

Worst

As much as I love Rihanna's red hair phase, I will never love the Jean Paul Gaultier dress she wore to the 2011 Grammy's. She will look amazing always, but I can't get behind the toilet-paper pinata sheer mess that this dress is. She can definitely rock a sheer dress (see below!), but the fluffy crepe paper-esque stripes are just not for me.

Best

Rihanna's "naked dress" by Adam Selman at the 2014 CFDA awards, shocking everyone and dividing up audiences who loved or hated the look. I personally think it's brilliant, as Rihanna attended the event to accept the award for Fashion Icon of the year, and turned up nearly nude. The customized dress had over 216,000 Swarovski crystals, and she wasn't actually naked... it was mostly an illusion. I have mixed feelings about the headpiece, but I admired her for rocking this look overall.

Worst

You may love the Giambattista Valli dress RiRi wore to the 2015 Grammy's but I think she only looks good because it's her. The hair and makeup is perfectly understated, but the dress is straight from a barbie cake, and Rihanna is the topper. Her bad-gal attitude is a hilarious contrast to the frou frou layers and layers she's dressed in.

Best

It takes quite a star to wear the same color as the carpet and stand out entirely, and Rihanna achieved this at the 2013 Grammy's in Alaia. The sheer panels are pretty and still tasteful, and her red lips push the red envelope, but I love it. Her hair is so classic, and the trail of the gown manages to seperate from the carpet just enough to make a statement.

Worst

Rihanna's Elie Saab gown at the 2010 American Music Awards was a sartorial flop, in my opinion. The semi-sheer torso and exposed back may be a daring move for some stars, but I think Rihanna can do better. The padded shoulders, print, and her overdone curls all age her; she was only 22 here!

Best

I was back and forth on Rihanna's Alexandre Vauthier dress at the 2014 Grammy's, until I decided I really love it. It's so unexpected, almost like a trench coat or a satin smoking jacket, but she pulls it off SO well. The color is divine against her skin tone, and the leg slit and low collar (accentuated with that necklace) is beyond sexy.

Worst

Another time I didn't love Rihanna in Elie Saab was the 2010 Grammy's. The added volume is strong, but I actually prefer when Rihanna's edgy attitude is sharper than the silhouettes she wears. The high collar is too much with her angular haircut, and the feathers are overpowering.

What did I miss? What did I forget?

Rihanna's fashion choices can be divisive, and she handles the strangest of red carpet ensembles with grace, poise, and attitude that always leave me envious, whether I loved or hated the look.

@JordanNash I love that dress too! It didn't quite make the list but it was definitely a great look
Rihanna sure knows how to make people talk with her fashion. I also really loved the black dress she wore at the 2012 Grammys. It wasn't a stand out by her standards, but I loved that it was classic with just the right amount of sexy. http://www.usmagazine.com/uploads/assets/photo_galleries/regular_galleries/1538-awards-season-2012-best-dressed-stars/photos/1329165218_rihanna-1500.jpg

5 Ways to Make The Most of Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular treatments all over the world. The combination of experienced practitioners and cutting-edge technology can provide you with the best hair removal results for the various treatment areas. Here's how you can make sure you get the best results. 1. Begin with a consultation. During the consultation, you will meet with a dermatologist who will review your medical history, discuss treatment goals, explain how the treatment works, discuss the type of results the client can expect, and determine if the client is a good candidate for treatment. Consultations typically last 20-30 minutes. 2. Plan ahead of time Your dermatologist will advise you to shave the treatment areas before your laser hair removal appointment. Prior to treatment, do not wax any of the treated areas. Hair is removed from the follicle by waxing. The hair follicles in the treated areas must be intact for laser hair removal to work. The pigment required by the laser for hair removal is found in the hair follicle. If the hair follicle is not present, the laser will burn the skin rather than remove hair. If your underarms are one of the areas to be treated, we recommend that you do not wear any deodorant. 3. Set realistic expectations  Although laser hair removal can permanently reduce body hair, there is no scientific evidence that it can permanently remove ALL body hair. There is no such thing as permanent hair removal. Clients should not expect to be completely hair-free after laser hair removal. This is why the FDA refers to laser hair removal results as "permanent hair reduction." We have, however, seen incredible results where the hair is almost completely gone. The majority of you will notice a significant reduction in body hair. Hair that grows back after each session is sparse, fine, and lighter in colour. Laser hair removal reduces the amount of shaving you'll need to do in the future while also reducing the amount and thickness of the hair that grows back. After completing a full series of laser hair removal treatments, you will typically require one or two maintenance sessions per year to maintain results. 4. The Importance of Timing When the skin is least exposed to the sun, the best time of year to get laser hair removal is in the winter. For the majority of our patients, this occurs in the fall. Many factors will influence the best time of year for treatment. First and foremost, consider the client's lifestyle. Does the client spend a lot of time outside with their skin exposed? Second, it will be determined by how tanned a client's skin is. The more dark the skin, the less energy the laser can use for a safe and effective treatment. With the laser's energy decreasing, more sessions will be required to achieve the desired results for a client. Another factor to consider is the body part being treated. Laser hair removal on the face typically requires one session every 6 weeks to achieve the desired results. This treatment series can be finished in the fall/winter season. Laser hair removal in the neck to tummy area typically requires one session every 8 to 10 weeks to achieve the desired results. Laser hair removal on areas below the tummy usually requires one session every 15 weeks to achieve the desired results. It may take more than a year to achieve the desired results with laser hair removal on the lower leg area. It is important to note that the further away the body area is from the face and heart, the longer the healing time and the hair growth cycle takes. This makes receiving laser hair removal treatments more difficult during the summer months. The skin should not be exposed to direct sunlight for the best laser hair removal results. This is why, unless they don't mind staying indoors and covered up, most clients don't get laser hair removal in the summer. 5. Book Your Appointments Ahead Of Time Depending on the area being treated and the stage of hair growth, it may take several laser hair removal sessions to weaken the hair follicle enough that it does not grow back. A dermatologist may recommend that you come in for treatment once every 8 to 15 weeks to achieve the desired results, depending on the area of the body being treated. It's a good idea to pre-book all of their laser hair removal sessions and get them on their calendar at the start of your treatment plan. This not only ensures that you get your preferred appointment times, but it also helps you stay on track with their treatments and reduces the likelihood of missing a session. If you go too long between treatments and miss a laser hair removal session, you risk falling out of the hair growth cycle and needing more sessions.

Rihanna at the Dior 2016 Show, and Always Making a Case for Baby Pink
Rihanna recently won all fashion week style contests at the Christian Dior Spring 2016 show in Paris last week. This magnificent, show-stopping cape (and vinyl booties) had me thinking about Rihanna's penchant for baby pink, a color many women shy away from in fear of looking "too girly" or delicate. Why does this association have to stay in place, though? If Rihanna, one of the baddest gals around, can wear baby pink and look strong, maybe we can too. Here are my favorites of her style choices in the delicate and difficult color. First, let's take another look at that amazing Dior cape. Rihanna stunned for very clear reasons, rocking the new cape/poncho trend in this oversized number, with high black vinyl boots with clear heels peeking out from underneath. One whole year ago, Rihanna wore another baby pink Dior number to the Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2015 show. This was one of her girlier looks, complete with a high curled ponytail, and yet no one would see her and contest that she is a strong and powerful woman. Can Riri help us break down a fear of letting a color steer our personas? Rihanna visited Good Morning America in this bubblegum pink Pascal Millet Fall 2015 collection jumpsuit, blazer, and boa. This look took the head-to-toe monochrome look to another level, perhaps one only Rihanna can rock, and with faux fur that looked more rocking diva than pretty-princessy. At the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Rihanna performed at this pale baby pink lacey number. This look would have been a bit racy for most occasions, but the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is known for giving celebs an outlet to mix cute and sexy costume elements, so it's no surprise that Rihanna opted for a cheeky look in this baby hue. In June 2014, Rihanna was spotted out and about in this baby pink jersey and with a pink pixie cut, proving she can wear basically anything she wants, in pink nonetheless, and still look badass. All the outfit needed to further flip off a hater was a pair of Chanel slides, and she rocked those like they were the most casual footwear available. In November 2014, Rihanna attended the MAC Cosmetics and MAC AIDS Fund Premiere of "It's Not Over" Wearing this demure and sophisticated suit by Altuzarra. If there's anyone that can make baby pink gingham sexy, it's Rihanna, and all sheneeded was a plunging neckline and dark lip to remind us that a strong woman can take control over her look any way she wants.
