Rihanna - What makes someone a fashion icon?

Rihanna - What makes someone a fashion icon?

Is it the way she wears her clothes or the clothes that she chooses to wear? An inherent sense of style that sets her apart? Someone who sets trends but never looks like a slave to them?
All of these are true, but with Rihanna, she is someone we are always excited to see, whose every style move we await with anticipation. We want to look at her and discuss her fashion choices, how she is seen wearing every conceivable combination of clothing, from haute to streetwear, and always looking incredible. 
Rihanna open’s up endless possibilities as to what is style and what is fashion. She takes clothing that most of us wear and completely reimagines them. And she takes clothing that very few of us would dare, the ‘naked dress’ she wore to the CFDA Awards for example, and makes it look brilliant. 
From sweat suits with heels to oversized jumpsuits with creepers, Rihanna has the ability to surprise and enchant us. She oozes a confidence and comfort in her own skin that transfixes us. 
No matter what she puts on, Rihanna looks like she was born to wear it. She wears everything with ease and grace. Her wildly successful clothing line, fenty x puma, that focuses on Athletic wear, makes so many of us feel like hey, I can rock a pair of track pants or sweatshirt just like Rihanna, with the same insouciance and charm. 
Rihanna has been in the public consciousness for 15 years. She still entrances us and makes us wonder what she will be wearing next.
We can’t wait.
