Grammy-winning singer Rihanna is fashion’s latest “It” girl.” The Bajan beauty doesn’t simply follow trends, she sets them. From this summer’s neon nails and African-inspired gladiator sandals to her edgy asymmetrical hairstyles and gothic jewels, Rihanna and her style team understand what it takes to pull a look together. That’s why we’re so excited she finally announced she’s going to share her flair with the world with her own clothing line.

“I’m not one to rush into anything. I want to take my time,” she told a WWD reporter at the Gucci Spring 2009 show in Milan last week. “I can’t say when it will be released, but it’s definitely going to happen.”
