I came across this photo of Rihanna leaving another Hollywood hotspot the other day:

While the ‘do is often derided as an 80s tragedy, I remember it fondly as the epitome of chic hair and fabulous style. Seeing Rihanna emerge with a 21st century version of the iconic hairstyle inspired me to pay homage to what my first memory of fierce fashion was.

As for whether this remains to be the next 80s throwback comeback? Judging by the effortless way that Rihanna worked it, don’t be surprised to see it on the streets very soon.
