To act like I've been a fan of Rihanna's flaming Raggedy Ann red hair all along would make me a liar liar pants on fire. But after watching her new "Only Girl in the Word" video, I'll admit it's really starting to grow on me.
But her look is really pulled together in the new video, which is directed by Anthony Mandler. In it, the pop star is filmed against a backdrop of breathtakingly gorgeous landscapes singing and dancing by herself -- she's truly the only girl in the world.
But it's the combination of that fiery red hair and her rockin' style that helps Rihanna to shine; anything less subtle wouldn't be enough to stand out against the dazzling scenery. Finally, I see a reason for all the red.
Her look is flirty, high fashion, and, most important, it looks like she's having the time of her life. (It doesn't hurt that the song is ridiculously catchy either.) And that hair! I'm not only admiring it! I'm starting to want it myself!
