Rihanna is a stylists dream because she manages to pull off looks that almost no one else can… short hair, long hair, blonde, brunette, big shoulders, studs – things most people would look overwhelmed by, she looks effortless in. She’s a little like Kate Moss or Karen O in that way.
I love the shoulders on this Balenciaga dress she’s wearing here. I’m trying to figure out the best way to draft them.

I found this diagram here, and I think the idea is that you place the front and back bodice slopers so that the shoulders are touching, then blend them together to create the shoulder yoke. I’m pretty excited to try it out. Jennifer Connelly wore a version of it in a Balenciaga ad as well, although the shoulders are a bit more raised than in Rihanna’s version.
