All hail rihanna, Queen of the Red Carpet. Though the musician and Fenty Beauty founder didn’t walk the red carpet at the 2023 Golden Globes, she did attend the event — in stunning Schiaparelli haute couture from head to toe, no less. Such an epic dress requires an equally stunning hair look to match, and Rihanna delivered 1,000 percent with an intricate, twisted updo that played up the surreal vibes of her dramatic dress.
Rihanna, who attended the ceremony alongside partner A$AP Rocky, donned an off-the-shoulder black dress with a ruched bodice and ankle-strap stiletto heels. The dress itself was simple, but attached to her opera-length velvet gloves was a huge velvet cape with a long train and tons of volume at the shoulders. The star paired the couture with a twisted updo that looked like a ’50s moment from the front, especially with the curled side bangs, but more like a cinnamon roll or funnel cake from the back.
Rih’s hair was parted down the middle and pulled up into two sections, then looped into large spirals to literally spin a classic ruffled updo. When you look at her directly, it seems like her hair is styled in big curls, but when you examine every angle, it changes in the coolest way for a true couture moment. You have to have the full 360 experience to truly appreciate the updo for the work of art it is.
