There is no debate when it comes to Rihanna’s style. The business mogul and singer-songwriter has turned her personal brand into some of this generation’s most successful business ventures. Aside from selling multiple chart-topping albums and writing the rule book on modern-day celebrity, the Barbados native has undeniably become a beauty and fashion style icon for the 2000s and beyond.
“I’ve been slowly evolving throughout the fashion world. First wearing it, buying it, being recognized for my style and then collaborating with brands,” the singer told The New York Times back in 2019. Before co-hosting the 2018 Met Gala, starting her own luxury brand with LVMH, and completely turning the lingerie industry on its head, Rihanna started out on the fashion scene during her “Pon de Replay” debut in 2005 and pioneered so many classic styles of that era, from crop tops and low-rise jeans to waistcoats and bubble-hem mini skirts.
As early-aughts style continues to make its comeback decades later, who else better to look to for inspiration than the bad gal herself? Ahead, see her best Y2K fashion moments through the years.
