Dynamic Duo

Yes, Rihanna can dress with the best of them and yes, we love her style…j’adore.  But the girl does have help and that help comes in the form of Fashion Stylist and Costume Designer Mariel Haenn.  Haenn has been working with Rihanna to help her go from sticky sweet pop sensation to Good Girl, Gone bad and this Dynamic Duo is leading the pack when it comes to edgy, avant garde style (along with Rihanna’s hair and make-up stylists).

Haenn initially wanted to be a designer but found that styling offered more excitement and allowed her to design the overall look and personnality of her clients.

Haenn also styles such celebrities as Jada Pinkett-Smith, Will Smith ,Vanessa and Angela Simmons and Ciara.   and sometimes even dresses them up in pieces that she has designed.

While Haenn cites styling on a budget as a bit of a challenge she overcome this by hitting up stores like H & M and Forever 21 for chic accessories and even incorporates designs of her own into the outfits.
