Rihanna's new album Talk That Talk drops today and what better way to celebrate how far the Caribbean queen has come than by taking a walk down memory lane. The 23-year-old Barbados-born singer burst onto the music scene in 2005 with a sweet and innocent look and her (gasp!) natural brown hair color.
Even after she had her first major hit with "Pon de Replay," Rihanna kept her style somewhat conservative with natural and fresh makeup. And while this ensemble gives off a Jersey Shore vibe, it's pretty tame compared to the provocative outfits that were to come.
RiRi's admitted that she loves to dress like a tomboy sometimes, but when she gets dolled up my, oh my, does she go all out. This plunging neckline paired with glossy red lips and super sleek locks were just the beginning of her ever-changing style.
In 2007 Rihanna started showing off an edgier side side with the release of her Good Girl Gone Bad album. This asymmetrical black bob hairstyle and lavender eyeshadow were proof that things were a changin'.
Rihanna's rocked almost as many hairstyles as R-Patz and she certainly takes the cake when it comes to having a chameleon-like style. Because really, how many other people could pull off a blonde and brunette faux-hawk and still look sexy?
