Rihanna is a style star, says Seventeen



Tbdrihanna112807_2 The results are in for Seventeen’s inaugural Style Star awards, and Rihanna takes the top spot among trendsetters this year. Gina Kelly, the magazine’s fashion director, helped pick the winners for the December/January issue, and told the AP that the Umbrella singer got the honor because she embraced ’80s looks and helped restart a trend those of us old enough to remember that decade would like to leave buried.

Tbdrihannab112807 “I love her because she’s not like anyone else out there,” Kelly says. “It starts with her haircut. When she started out, it was long and pretty, but when she got the asymmetrical bob, she just started to break out — and then she got a cool new wardrobe to match her cool new hair.” Other fashionistas making the cut include Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Jordin Sparks, Fergie, Lauren Conrad, Ashley Simpson and Lil Mama. What, no Gwen Stefani? She must be too old these days.
