The singer has always been a style renegade, effortlessly slipping into daredevil designs again and again. But after a tumultuous year, Rihanna
came through stronger and even more confident. "Her look has definitely gotten bolder," says her hairstylist, Ursula Stephen. "Every time she steps out the door, it's like a fashion show. And she's not scared of anything now." That's apparent in her courageous style choicesthink bright neon makeup, linebacker-size shoulder pads and short hair that's surprisingly chameleonlike. Says her stylist, Mariel Haenn: "She likes going against the grain."
