Rihanna Paints It White
The news broke yesterday in the late afternoon via Twitter and Instagram: Chris Brown and Rihanna were canoodling at the Staples Center as the Lakers took on the Knicks in a Christmas Day nail-biter. Then came the tabloid onslaught as media outlets, reputable and otherwise, picked up on the fact that it was the first time in recent memory that the one-time couple arrived at a public event together following 2009′s assault charges and the persistent on-again, off-again rumors that followed. But no one’s talking about another interesting detail spotted courtside, namely Rihanna’s opaque white manicure. The “Stay” singer has ditched crazier nail art and pointed talons of late in favor of classic shapes and colors, making ivory polish a predictable choice, considering its huge showing on the Spring runways. From Rag & Bone and Kate Spade to Honor and Moschino, manicurists like Jin Soon Choi and Deborah Lippmann were seeing alabaster backstage. Try two coats of Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Spirit or Deborah Lippmann’s Amazing Grace for similar results—and to properly accessorize your wardrobe of winter whites.
