BN Pick Your Fave: Rihanna & Beyoncé



BN Pick Your Fave - Beyonce & RIhanna - BN Style - 01
Come rain, come sun, denim never goes out of style.

For this edition of BN Pick Your Fave, we are going international. We have two of the hottest divas in the world of music – Rihanna and Beyoncé battling it out for your best in denim.

Bey and Bad Gal Ri Ri are both rocking a denim shirt, ripped denim skirt and Chanel brooches.

In April, Ri Ri stepped out in Beverly Hills, California, to shop.

She folded her denim shirt sleeves and chose a plastic Chanel bracelet, black bracelet with white pearls, a black snapback, a selection of silver rings, and nude heels as accessories.

Over the weekend, Queen Bey posted photos of her day on her Tumblr page. She posed for the cameras in a very similar look.

For accessories, Queen Bey accessorized with gold bracelet, dark shades, a snakeskin bag, Christian Louboutin heels and had more Chanel brooches.

Who is your fave?

    Beyonce looks quite ratchet tbh. This is why people say she is not a fashion icon. #TeamRiRi

    Rihanna, because her look was simple and well put together. She wasn’t trying too hard. Beyoncé s poses seem forced, very cringe worthy.

    Not sure, they both look good. What I am, however, sure of is that I’ll be filching Rihanna’s interpretation of this look and pairing a denim shirt (rolled back sleeves, et al) with a black, knee-length skirt and nude heels for a work outfit sometime in the next couple of weeks… It’s okay to call me a copy cat, I’m not even fazed. 🙂

    Riri all the way. Very chic, I must say.

    PS: Did Rihanna remove the Tā moko (aka the Maori tattoo) she got on her hand last year? I thought its permanent?

    • Belz

      August 4, 2014 at 4:04 pm

      Well you obviously have no sense of style because beyonce just looks so damn ratchet in those glasses and the pose…LORD help her, but anyway you probably dress ratchet like her XD

    • benny

      August 4, 2014 at 5:23 pm

      She had to add “…and swagalicious babe”. Lol. I can’t deal

      August 4, 2014 at 5:25 pm

      You on the other hand sound very uncouth. People like you would be opening their mouths talking like akata’s and feeling cool…please go and sit down.

    We know style and Beyoncé should never be used in the same sentence

  54. mamamia

    August 4, 2014 at 11:56 pm

    Is Beyoncé dark skinned or light skinned? Abi, she uses bronzers?

  55. Zeeeeeeeeeep

    August 5, 2014 at 10:26 am

    They both look good.. I must go with Riri’s.. Its funny how they switched up their styles with this outfit. Riri wld naturally had gone for a styling like bey’s . Beyonce’s the opposite. Wonder what happened. Good to see riri sanely dressed.. Though I wld ve loved that edgy that comes with riri’s own sense of style. I’m nt a man of the” hat” on that outfit.

  56. Zeeeeeeeeeep

    August 5, 2014 at 11:01 am

    Yes Beyonce is a fashionista… Ratchet? If there is anyone who dresses like that it certainly Riri, though @ times with an edge.. Hence are eccentric edgy style. Which I like sometimes. But class I did go with bey. Reason I was shocked they switched styles.

    August 5, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    I can’t believe I’m about to say this but, wallahi the first thought that came to mind after seeing beyonce’s denim pic was “Raz.” Rihanna seems more put together to me.

    August 7, 2014 at 2:40 am

    JAY, Z, which will u rather, “Bey” or “Riri”?

  59. maviscruz

    August 11, 2014 at 1:23 pm

    4 me I will go with the Queen bee Beyonce, cos she got all the swaggz and got wat it takes 4 an out fit RIri. Looks helpless/cheaper on her outfit with her cheap cap
