Low, superlong, straight ponytails have been in vogue on the runways for quite some time and were most recently showcased at this week’s Valentino haute couture show. And plenty of young celebs have purposefully gone gray, most recently Zosia Mamet. (I love it; it means I don’t have to cover the grays I’ve had since age 14—they just look like cool-girl highlights now!) But no matter what trendy thing is happening, Rihanna can do it better. Example one of many: the long and gray ponytail she wore to her first annual Diamonds ball last night.
Riri wore an almost-butt-grazing ponytail from the nape of her neck, thus inviting plenty of attention to her open-backed dress—and press for her charity event for the Clara Lionel Foundation. This was the first black-tie fund-raiser for the foundation, named after the singer’s grandparents, which funds health, education, and arts programs. (In case you missed it: Back in 2012, Rihanna donated $1.75 million dollars to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados. Yup, one-upping everyone in more than just hairstyles.) The wilder the style, the more the press. We can’t wait to see the look that she wears next year.
