Rihanna on Princess Diana's style: 'I loved everything she wore'

Rihanna has an unlikely fashion icon: Princess Diana.


The singer has hailed the late Princess of Wales as her biggest fashion inspiration, praising her often unconventional, always on-point sense of style in a new interview with Glamour.


"You know who is the best who ever did it? Princess Diana,” she said. "Every look was right."


The 25-year-old continued: "She was gangsta [sic] with her clothes. She had these crazy hats. She got oversize jackets. I loved everything she wore."

Rihanna also spoke about her mother’s influence on her sartorial choices.


"My love for fashion — let me say, my admiration for fashion — started with my mom," the Barbadian beauty said. "I used to watch her get dressed. She was around my age right now, and she was so fly. So fly."


The "Pour it Up" singer is well-known for her daring, sexy outfits, made all the more apparent with her edgy collections for British high street brand River Island.


And while we had no idea that Rihanna was such a Princess Diana fan, we couldn’t agree more!
