Rihanna and Posen Kick Off Fashion Rocks
The Fashion Rocks AIDs benefit concert will be starring Beyoncé, Kanye West, Scissor Sisters, Elton John and young Barbadian star Rihanna. She is teaming up with hot designer Zac Posen to create outfits for the concert that marks the beginning of New York Fashion Week. Rihanna contacted the designer to make her a dress for the red carpet and another for a 'secret appearance'. This is a big change from her life in back home: "Barbados is so far away from everything else, my friend and I would look at magazines and say, `So that's what's hot in the rest of the world.' We'd wear sweaters, boots — we didn't care if that's what was in style."
