Rihanna Debuts New Hair Do And Givenchy Outfit To Promote 'Battleship' In Japan

2 April 2012

New images of Rihanna promoting 'Battleship', aka: her new film, have just landed in the Grazia Daily inbox and our thoughts are three-fold:

1. The new hair

All weekend, Grazia Daily's Instagram feed was filled with sultry shots of the songstress transforming from a blonde bombshell to a dark raven and mere hours later, we have the first official outing for her new 'do. In the full light of day (and without those nifty filters) we can see just how jet black she's gone and as her tweets clarified, it's a return to her true roots. Didn't we tell you this is a growing beauty trend in Celebdom? Lindsay Lohan is a red head once again and Emma Stone is back to being blonde, encouraging us Graziettes to ditch the dye too. But we digress. To give those tumbling curls a 'bad gurl' edge, Ri-Ri's shaved half her hair off! Yep, the star has made like Alice Dellal, Ellie Goulding and, most recently, Milla Jovovich by sporting the masculine style that she first tried back in 2010.

2. The Givenchy outfit

But we've given Ri-Ri's head enough attention for one day - what of the rest of her? Well, for today's press conference, which took place in Yokosuka mere hours ago, she chose a head-to-toe noir ensemble courtesy of her designer pal, Riccardo Tisci. She teamed Givenchy's roll neck wool sweater covered in twinkling embellishments with a pair of cotton harem trousers and long leather gloves, similar to those she wore at the Brit Awards last month. Is this another clue that Rihanna is working with Givenchy's creative director on her own fashion line?

3. The on-going fash-off

The battle of the 'Battleship' babes gains apace as Brooklyn Decker rivals her co-star's muted outfit with a touch of colour-popping. Yup, the blonde bombshell braved the cold in a silky navy blue vest tucked into a high-waisted printed pencil skirt by our very own Peter Pilotto. And check out those eye-wateringly bright neon yellow Louboutin heels! We love.

But what say you to Rihanna's new look? We're still getting accustomed to the colour-less-ness and crossing our fingers that she'll be back with a bang for the next promo outing. Watch this space...
