Before we get started, I should admit something: Rihanna is probably my favorite famous person in the world. She’s gorgeous, she’s talented and she always looks like she’s having a lot of fun, in spite of the constraints of fame. She also has a body that can only be described as “bangin’” and employs it to great effect when it comes to fashion; she’ll try anything, combine anything and then be on to the next look before you can digest what just happened.
She has the range of someone like Lady Gaga or Anna Dello Russo, but without the self-seriousness that those two bring to personal style. With Rihanna, it feels like she’s doing it all to amuse herself, and maybe to amuse us a little bit, too. With that brings the use of tons of different bags, and because RiRi is a favorite target of the paparazzi, we have plenty of pictures to follow her handbag journey. That’s why she’s the first person to get a third “Many Bags”–her collection is an embarrassment of riches.
Below, check out nearly three dozen new editions to Rihanna’s bag collection since the last time we saw her. Or, just check out nearly three dozen photos of Rihanna being awesome. You can look at it either way.
