Rihanna's fashion channels celebrated 80s TV icon

August

I've been staring at this picture for the longest time trying to decide what it reminds me of. It's Rihanna, who was promoting her new perfume, Reb'l Fleur, in London Friday. Interestingly, the spelling of Rihanna's perfume has been altered from that of her infamous neck tattoo, which everyone said was jacked-up, grammatically speaking. I'm not so sure simply removing letters helps, but I'm getting off track.

The outfit:

I actually really adore the color on her. The shoes are great. The shirt... well, it looks like she skinned a Fraggle and wore it as her Blood Trophy.

But all that aside, this look has a certain aesthetic I just couldn't quite nab. The fluffy red hair, the 1980s cut of the pants, the smug yet knowing smile, the square shoulders of certitude.

Then it hit me.

Katherine Helmond. Better known as the sassy Mona, from Who's the Boss?.

RIGHT? AM I RIGHT?
