Rihanna's Odd Jeans: Is It Bizarre Pants Week and We Didn't Get the Memo?

On Monday, we were totally bewildered by Jessica Chastain‘s sheer-thigh trousers. Tuesday we tried to make sense of Justin Bieber‘s drop-crotch pants fixation.

Now we’re facing yet another pants crisis of epic proportions: Rihanna‘s dual-zip, dual-wash pair of jeans.

Perfect for the gal who feels that a single pair of jeans is just too flattering, or for one who likes the look of pants hanging off her butt while still giving a “mom jeans” vibe, these trousers are actually an original Rihanna design, part of her critically-lambasted collection for River Island.

And what we find even more distressing than the pants themselves is that the $150 pair has already sold out at River Island’s website — meaning that we’re doomed to see girls who aren’t Rihanna trying to pull this look off.

But since three’s a trend, maybe we’re the crazy ones, and these unusual pants are here to stay.

Tell us: What do you think of Rihanna’s latest look? Are you going to try wacky pants this spring?

I see she just keeps making wise decision one after the other. But hey, she keeps getting on magazine covers so she must be doing something right.

Yuck, do not like the “look” of these jeans at all, not too mention they look very uncomfortable and $150.
I guess since it is her line of jeans, they will sell like hotcakes!

i didn’t know rihanna was a never-nude.

What is it with baggy crotched pants? Isn’t there some code in prison about baggy pants? Like you’re available to be someone’s ‘lady for the evening’. ??

ErinJ on

Ewwww. She’s digging her grave with this one. Please let real designers make clothing. Stick to what you know sweetie – singing and getting beat down.

Love them. You can have that look without showing skin.
