We knew it was only a matter of time before this style-setter turned celebrity designer — after all, she’s already one of PEOPLE’s Best Dressed. While attending the Gucci Spring 2009 show in Milan, Rihanna, who has already done charity T-shirts with H&M and designed umbrellas for Totes, admitted to WWD that a clothing line is in the works, “I’m not one to rush into anything. I want to take my time. I can’t say when it will be released, but it’s definitely going to happen.” That’s good enough for us! With her girly spin on rock n’ roll style, we are sure Rihanna is gearing up to be the next Gwen Stefani. Tell us: Are you excited about Rihanna’s line?

She has a cool, funky, and casual style. Im going to be the first in line!

I sincerely hope not. I like Rihanna, but I don’t think she’s qualified to make clothes at all. She should just stick to music.

Samantha on

I think it would be edgy and sexy but, like all other celebrities, way overpriced.

Rihanna should definately design a line. She is always fashionably dressed and accessorized. Her look is daring and has an edge to it that hopefully she will incorporate into her new line.

I can’t wait to see what Rihanna’s line is going to look like. I’m very excited because she has such a unique and daring style. I hope she incorporates some of her cool personal style into her line. And I really hope she includes shoes!

Rihanna is a cute girl. She also dresses quite well. Is she dressing herself or does she have a stylist? Does Rihanna sketch designs? Having a famous name doesn’t qualify one to become a designer.

I like Rihanna as an artist. I don’t like her style at all. I think she simply tries too hard to look different, there’s people that make dressing stylish look effortless, and those are the people that maybe deserve a chance to design something if they wish. She wants to do sooo much with just one outfit all the time it looks rididculous! Sometimes keeping certain things simple can go a long way and real beauty does not need so much junk all over the place.

(spelling) *ridiculous. lol!

Just what the world needed: another celebrity playing to be designer.

Alexis on

Oh gosh…another celeb who thinks just because their stylist helps them pick a few outfits they can become a designer! Gimme a break! Can we please let actual fashion design students through the celeb fashion line wall…

Courtney on

If I wanted any celebrity to be a designer- IT WOULD BE RIHANNA!!

Very exciting!

Cant wait! She has incredible style.

Ruby on

I agree with D..she does too much with one outfit! Maybe it will do good in Barbados, but I’m ready to see it flop here in the States.

MsV on…love her style….

Jill on

I also agree with “D”. I wouldn’t wear half the things Rihanna wears. She just goes overboard on her outfits too often. Now in the picture above, she looks nice but, her day to day fashion I’m not a big fan of.

dee on

Rihanna has a stylist that dresses her. Just another celebrity turn designer gone bad.

dezinediva on

i can see really rockerish, stuff, cute jeans, slouchy punked out sweatshirts, sexi minis, appliques, studs, scarves, vests, etc. What the heck am i doing? Giving away all the good dezine ideas! Rihanna, you need an excellent, qualified designer for this line, give a sista a call!

Carmen on

Who really cares? I don’t have much respect for artist that diss their fans. Individuals buying your product (music) is the reason she’s rich and famous. Maybe someone needs to remind her of that. She would rather face the paparazzi instead of sign autographs for teenage fans. That’s definitely not a good look for Rihanna.

Can you tell me who did your layout? I have been looking for one kind of like yours. Thank you.
