Enter into the world of Rihanna. Since 2005, the Barbadian beauty caught my attention with her catchy songs, and even more so, her megawatt style. When Rihanna first hit the scene, she stayed within the sexy singer realm via colorful body-con frocks and separates. As the years went along, she took a turn towards high fashion. After attending numerous runway shows, Rihanna developed an edgier sense of dressing — who can forget those star shaped pasties — and started donning clothes and accessories from the likes of Chanel, Alexander Wang, and Rodarte, to name a few. Despite The songstress continues to impress me with her daring in-your-face ensembles and experimental hairdos. Let's take a look at Rihanna's astounding fashion metamorphosis as we wish her a very Fab 23rd birthday!
When future princess Kate Middleton showed up to her engagement announcement wearing an Issa royal blue silk jersey dress to match her sapphire ring, the British brand jumped into the fashion spotlight. Their jersey dresses started selling out. Now, with all eyes on them, Issa debuted an Autumn collection fit for a young, sartorially independent princess. There was sexy silk jersey with that body-flattering drape in rich colors like rust, a bold, full-skirted red coat, a beaded hunter green gown for red carpet events, even hats and elbow-length suede gloves. It's clear Issa is not looking to bring any groundbreaking direction to fashion, but that's just fine for a brand that thrives on doing wearable, sophisticated clothes for that classic London girl who wants just a bit of hip in her wardrobe.
- Trends: Draping, maxi skirts, graphic prints.
- Colors: Rust, red, teal, gray.
- Key Looks: The rust-colored silk jersey pieces looked perfect for autumn days, and nights.
- Accessories: Sartorial hats, suede gloves.
- Who Would Wear It: Mostly classic girls who want a mix of sexy and sophistication.

The collection stayed true to the great outdoors with traditional heritage fabrics and ladylike ensembles. There were plenty of pleated midi length skirts in a range of eye popping colours including green. Since it was Mulberry, all eyes were on the accessories which included the new Polly pushlock which is sure to be the brands next it-bag.

The show attracted a celebrity audience including Kirsten Dunst and Gemma Arterton.
