Style Icons of the month February – Rihanna and Adele

This is the first month where I’ve felt the need to add an ‘s’ to Icon, because this month was dominated by two ladies who require no surname, Adele and Rihanna. Other than the lack of surnames, these ladies don’t really have that much in common musically or stylewise, but they do have the knack of turning all eyes towards them when they walk the red carpet. And each has been rocking some seriously retro style this month, with Rihanna channelling Studio 54 glamour with a touch of Michelle Pfeiffer circa Scarface, whilst Adele shows she is the natural descendant of 1940s era Rita Hayworth with soft waves and shimmering evening attire.

This month they stole the show and fashion plaudits at the Grammys and the Brits in totally different looks. Here are some of the reasons why they win Best dressed for February.
