There was a time when the mere mention of singer Rihanna‘s name caused a designer’s temperature to rise. But those days are long gone, as Rihanna hasn’t a hit song in years. According to the Bajan singer’s stylist, Mel Ottenberg, it’s becoming more difficult to dress the singer because fashion designers have simply stopped shipping their collections for her to sample.
From Yahoo News:
In a The New York Times interview with Rihanna’s genius of a stylist, Mel Ottenberg, it was revealed that Rihanna’s arsenal of couture pieces is nearing a dead end. While name-dropping greats like Tom Ford, Givenchy and Dior, all of which fight to dress Rihanna for any and every occasion, they’ve come upon a peculiar problem regarding inventory.
“It’s the end of May,” said Ottenberg, “and we’ve already used up all of fall/winter. It’s over.”
By “fall/winter,” of course, Ottenberg is referring to the forthcoming season that won’t actually arrive for several months-unless you’re Rihanna. Perhaps this pickle will force the songstress to expand her designer repertoire, or Ottenberg will simply have to get creative.
