Is that Ri or M.Monroe?

Pure Glam.

I had to double take to really see if this was RiRi! She completely nailed this Marilyn Monroe-esque look for British Vogue's November Issue. She made the look all her own. Inside the issue Rihanna discusses the norms: relationships, career, and style in a "controversial and loud" interview with Christa D'Souza. Although she apparently took a cue from some old Hollywood glam,  I absolutely love that Rihanna has a style of her own. You never know what to expect. To me this was better than Lindsay Lohan's homage to the late starlet in New York magazine in 2008. I think it's because of her comparisons of herself to Monroe. She had much to say about how much she and Monroe have in common in the foreword of Susan Bernard's new book Marilyn: Intimate Exposures. "People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn." She adds that she wants to be know for her talent rather than her troubled personal life just as Marilyn. with that being said, show us Lohan!
