We all know that Rihanna has her own special style and even though she’s a style icon she sometimes leaves us speechless with some of her outfits we cannot even begin to understand.

On Thursday, the star was spotted at Macy’s New York for the unveiling of her new fragrance “Riri”. For that she rockeda bubble gum pink, off shoulder mini dress with billowing sleeves by Vivienne Westwood, she teamed the statement look with pink Christian Louboutin pumps and a Chanel purse.

Later that night she had ditched her glam look for a super oversized green bomber jacket, a tank top, blue jeans and fluffy slippers.

On anyone else these elaborate looks would look like trash but Rih somehow manages to pull it off!
