Rihanna Reaches The Tipping Point
Almondine nails have become the provenance of rock star exhibitionists like Fergie, Lady Gaga, and more recently Lana Del Rey. But Rihanna took things one step further, as she so often does, at the Battleship premiere in Tokyo yesterday. The singer is pulling out all the beauty stops for her big-screen blockbuster debut, and in addition to going dark for the press junket, she sported ombré, gold-black gels filed to a precise point for the movie’s Japan release. Despite the talonlike shape, there’s something subdued about the style; it comes across as edgy, but not necessarily tacky. Although maybe that’s just us. What do you think?
