Robyn Rihanna Fenty better known by her stage name Rihanna, is a singer and song-writer from Barbados. Rihanna rose to fame after signing with Def Jam records (Jay-Z’s record label) and releasing her hit-single “Pon the Reply” which became a top charting single in the U.S. Since then, Rihanna has gone on to record hits with top names in the industry making her a house hold name both in the U.S. and internationally.
With an estimated networth of $28 million, the singer is one of the richest artists in the industry. Not only has Rihanna worked her way to the top in the music industry, she has also established herself as a fashion icon. Every award show, fans wait to see what ensemble she will display on the red carpet.
Rihanna has such a staple style, distinctive to just her, which makes her a unique pop icon. Her fashion sense has won her over in the hearts of key people in the fashion industry and because of this, the singer has fashion collaborations with some of the top fashion houses like PUMA and Dior.
Standing tall at 5ft 8in or 173cm is the Caribbean star, way above the average American female height. Regardless of her height however, Rihanna always stands out because of her distinctive style. She is one of the most gorgeous artists of her time, her Barbadian beauty offers her an exotic look unlike anyone else. A mix of Guyanese, Barbadian and Irish all blended together to create quite a beauty.
The star is 132 pounds, a healthy size for someone her height. She is often looked up to as inspiration for weight goals. We can see why, it is almost like she can do no wrong. Even better is the fact the star oozes confidence and is very much unapologetically herself. It comes with the Caribbean culture we presume. Because while others might shy away from their sensuality, her culture celebrates and embraces it.
Part of the celebration which she often attends is the Barbados Carnival, where she gets very festive with her often revealing costumes. The singer tends to show off her insane curves on the red carpet as well, bagging the 2014 CFDA style icon of the year award, Rihanna wowed the crowd with her “naked dress” and enviable figure.
The starlet has measurements of 34-24-36. The star has an athletic figure, usually particular to models. This is no wonder she is a huge fashion icon because she not only has the style and grace but the perfect model body to back it all up. This is why she has so many fashion collaborations, from Armani Jeans to River Island to being the face of the Balmain spring/summer 2014 campaign… she is the ultimate IT girl in the industry. The young singer was the first black woman to ever be the face of Dior, way to go Rihanna!
Rihanna’s Weight Gain
Over the years, Rihanna has put on some weight and gone on to shed if off as well. Being constantly in the public eye gives room for fans to notice these all sort of things.
While the star has always been very lean, towards the ending of 2015 and beginning of 2016 she gained some weight. During her Anti World tour, fans got to see a much curvier Rihanna than they were used to. Perhaps it was a change in her diet or workout routine but she has never specially addressed her weight gain.
Through her social media accounts the very hardworking star is usually seen partying with her family and friends when she’s not working, her eating and drinking habits during those times may have affected her weight. Some good extra meat on those curves from time to time is nothing to lose your head over though, because the star was seen recently back to her normal weight and looking better than ever.
The singer can balloon-up or shrink down to whatever size she wants and she would still be one of the sexiest stars out there. Her allure comes from the fact that she is very confident in her skin, something young girls should emulate. She also does not take herself or her style too seriously and that is what makes her so effortlessly chic.
