Rihanna reveals unusual style inspiration

Rihanna has admitted that while the majority of her style icons are women, there are just a couple of men she admires for how they present themselves and named Rod Stewart as an inspiration.

The Bajan beauty spoke to Company magazine about fashion and explained that as a young girl she never wore feminie clothes so surprised herself with her love for styling, and revealed there are two men in particular that she thinks are "effortless" in how they look:

"Chloe Sevigny is so sick. The Olsen twins are sick too. Debbie Harry, definitely, and Vivienne Westwood is top notch. There are a couple of guys though - Johnny Depp's style is just effortless and, for me, Rod Stewart gets it right."

"As a little girl, I only ever wanted to wear my brothers' clothes. I grew up with my brothers and boy cousins, so it was only when I met my best friend at 14 and discovered fashion magazines that I got into heels. Before that, I always went out in sneakers and pants with a T-shirt rolled up. I was never girly."



In the interview, Rihanna also opens up about having a crush on her 'Battleship' co-star Liam Neeson and added: " I fell in love with him when I watched Taken and I was so star-struck, I couldn’t even look at him on set. I just had to shut down completely."

"Then he asked me for a picture with him to send to his son and I was like, 'Send me this picture, I want it too!'"

The May issue of Company will hit newsstands on April 13 and you can watch Rihanna talk about her debut movie below:
