Rihanna ushers in the pixie-cut, small-purse, miniskirted post-pandemic era

Rihanna channels the 2012 RiRi as she rocks a bold pixie hairstyle while grabbing dinner at Nobu!

After moving to London for a few years, it seems like Rihanna is back in LA somewhat permanently? At the very least, she’s been in LA for what feels like most of 2021. We know that because she steps out with some regularity, usually role modeling good mask-wearing behavior, as she goes out to dinner or hangs out with friends. For a while, Rihanna had been rocking the same long-hair look. But then in the beginning of May, suddenly Rihanna cut it all off!! We’re back in a Rihanna Pixie Era!

Rihanna stepped out last night in LA. She went to Nobu with friends and she looked pretty amazing. She’s lost weight over the past year, right? For a while, she seemed to embrace a curvier aesthetic and the added weight looked amazing on her. But after her split with Hassan Jameel in January 2020, she moved away from London and started losing weight. And now she’s back to the pixie too, which she hasn’t had in many, many years. It feels like Rihanna is one of those celebrities who will be especially wild post-pandemic? She’s going to have some FUN this summer. I wonder who’s on her 2021 hit list. (Also: look at her little purse!!!)

Here’s a photo from May 5th, when we got the first look at her pixie. The pandemic and mask-wearing in general has finally broken Rihanna of her habit of stealing wine glasses from restaurants and leaving dinner with a to-go drink.

    I guess when you are Rihanna you don’t need a wallet with ID and credit cards.
    Love the hair cut – skirt is too short for my tastes but I am quite a bot older than she is.

  2. Becks1 says:

    I LOVE a pixie on her. She looks fantastic, even though I would never wear that, that’s okay, its not for me, LOL. I couldnt even fit my phone in that purse!

    • LadyMTL says:

      She has ‘people’ to carry her phone, don’tcha know? LOL. In all seriousness, I love the pixie cut on her, I think it suits her like it was invented for her…she has such a spectacular face that it totally works.
      As for the outfit, eh. It’s not my taste but she’s rocking it like only she can.

    Princess ohnana will always be hot whatever weight she chooses to be. Literally a face and body to die for.

  4. SM says:

    the hair is amazing. On the other hand, that thing that some fancy designer pushes as a purse for probably an outrageous price is an object of my rage. I can not stand the trend (just like the trend of tiny sun glasses). maybe because I am so particular about my purses.

  5. Midge says:

    I’m not feeling the outfit.
    However, THE MAY 5th ENSEMBLE. WOW.

    • SpankyB says:

      My thoughts too. I’ve never seen white pumps look good but she can do it. I want those pants.

  6. Chaine says:

    Is that even really a purse? Looks more like a designer glasses case!

    • Lightpurple says:

      I have something very similar, even the same shade of green, that was sold as a “sunglasses case” in my optometrist’s office years ago. I can squeeze my license, keys, but I have to choose between phone or glasses. Both won’t fit.

  7. Merricat says:

    I also love her in a pixie cut. I love her fashion bravado so much. I love that she’s a risk-taker; even when she fails, she still looks pretty freaking amazing.

  8. Linda says:

    The Rihanna hair cut is back. I remember when it was all the rage and many Nigerian women were fixing “the Rihanna” weave lol. Fun times.

  9. Brubs says:

    Could we not talk about her weight? C’mon

  10. Bella says:

    She looks gorgeous and I love how her mask matches her jacket and purse. In the second photo, I love, love the coat –I just don’t think the pants go with it. To me, it clashes to much, but other than that, she is just gorgeous!

    Can I just say that, while I am glad for you all in the States that you have been vaccinated, it’s going to be rough watching you all party up a storm this summer, while big chunks of the rest of the world continues in quarantine.

    • dina says:

      right?? I’m glad for y’all, but mannn.

      it’s so strange seeing American celebs on ig living it up when my province of NS has had so many new cases and is still on a lockdown. wild times
