Rihanna Sports a Toned-Down Look for Glamour November 2013

Pop music phenom Rihanna is no stranger to controversy with her provocative music videos, defiant sexuality and bold look; however, she shows off a much softer side in a Terry Tsiolis-photographed editorial for Glamour’s November 2013 issue. The pop star ditched the long, caramel locks she’s been sporting in favor of a short brown coif with natural-looking curls.

Rihanna wears a drapey, long-sleeved black one-piece accessorized with opulent gold cuffs and rings, a black-and-white two piece and jacket adorned with layered pearl necklaces. She also rocks a monochromatic mini-dress completed with horn-rimmed shades and comfy looking sneakers, as well as an all-white long sleeved crop-top-and-skirt combo.

The fashion is still fresh and edgy, but it’s a drastic departure from Rihanna’s usual theatrical, skin-baring fashion sensibilities. Rihanna's look here edges on the side of demure, rather than scandalous.
