Rihanna makes an appearance on the Jonathan Ross Show:
Rihanna’s appearance on the Jonathan Ross show on March 3rd, 2012 was greatly anticipated and she certainly didn’t disappoint! While there, she talked candidly on several subjects including sexuality, being single, her hometown in Barbados and egos. The excitement of this interview was also heightened by everyone’s curiosity over exactly what she’d be wearing. There again, Rihanna did not disappoint. In today’s installment of Vintage RiRi, we’ll be taking a look back at this interview and performance (which you can watch here on Rihanna Overdose as well) to review what she wore.
For this appearance, Rihanna wore a complete ensemble from the brand, BOY London. Let’s break down the pieces. She began things with their £35.00 BOY Cap. This cap features the word “BOY” emblazoned on the front. These caps are available in a number of color-ways at the brand’s online store. You can buy the exact cap Rihanna wore from the link we’ve provided below.

Now, the rest of her look was actually a custom design for her at the time of this appearance. But, these pieces later became available to the public. She wore what is now a £55.00 Repeat Rollneck BOY London Sweatshirt. This top features the Classic Boy Eagle repeat pattern throughout. Unfortunately, it has sold out.
Lastly, she completed the BOY London set with their £55.00 Boy Skirt in black. This skirt with an elastic waistband also features that Classic Eagle repeat pattern throughout. You can also get this skirt in white.

Rihanna wore quite a few rings for this appearance. She wore some key pieces from Jennifer Fisher and Jacquie Aiche. She wore Jacquie’s Brick Multi Waif Ring as well as Jennifer’s Double Finger Snake Ring and Double Finger 14K Gold Ring with Pave Diamonds.
Rihanna is definitely a trendsetter when it comes to fashion. London department store Selfridges saw an increase of over 45% on online orders placed for the Boy London range (this line is carried exclusively by the store) on one night alone after Rihanna’s appearance on the British television chat show. The label has garnered a cult fashion status since it was created in 1977 by Stephane Raynor, and in recent years it’s seen quite the revival. Selfridges launched the Boy London men’s collection in 2012, carrying unisex tees, sweatshirts, caps and leggings. The store’s Buying Manager Richard Sanderson commented that “whilst Boy London is firmly on the radar of fashion enthusiasts, it remains a bit of a hidden gem for London – so it’s great to see an international star championing one of our underground labels. The reaction from customers has been fantastic, particularly on our online store. We’re seeing both men and women buying into the unisex range. Rihanna’s style kudos is clearly having an impact on her UK audience.” The sentiments of Richard speak boldly to Rihanna’s ever-growing presence as a true fashion icon.
