In focus: Rihanna's blue lip

Making a bold statement..

Now, we aren’t ones to judge anyone for trying out new beauty looks. We trial trends all the time here at ELLE HQ (shameless selfie alert). But when we heard that Rihanna rocked up at the launch of her Rihanna for River Island autumn/winter 2013 line with a blue lip, we were slightly perplexed – but intrigued at the same time.

We haven’t seen this trend on any of the catwalks (this season, it's all about soft pinks and reds). But somehow, RiRi manages to pull this look off remarkably well, and we're not really surprised that she's one for making up her own beauty rules as she goes along. But hey, if anyone can pull of a quirky new style, then Rihanna would be your woman!
