Not since the heyday of music legends like Madonna and Cyndi Lauper has there been a female pop artist whose personal style has been duplicated like Rihanna's. The Barbadian beauty entered the music scene back in 2005 looking like a mini version of Beyoncé in belly-baring outfits, loose curls and loads of bronzer. But by the time her third album "Good Girl Gone Bad" was released, RiRi had set herself apart from the competition. She came out on top with edgier and sexier style, like her dark asymmetrical bob and signature smokey eye makeup.
Roc Nation's leading lady continues to push the envelope with every record, translating her controversial lifestyle into wearable art. From a blonde and black fauxhawk to fire-engine-red mermaid waves to a rebellious jet black undercut, she's kept her go-to hairstylists Ursula Stephen and Yusef Williams pretty busy with the scissors and hair dye.
In celebration of her new album "Unapologetic," we're taking a look back at Rihanna's beauty transformation through some of her music videos, including "Diamonds," "Rude Boy" and "Only Girl (In The World)." Tell us in the comments section which hair and makeup look you like best.
