Rihanna is a powerhouse! Not only is the beauty & fashion mogul dominating multiple industries, entertainment included, but the Barbadian beauty recently announced that she will headline the Super Bowl LVII performance on February 12th 2023!
In honor of this amazing comeback news—it has been 6 years since her last smash album Anti—let’s all drift down the rabbit hole of the singer’s most stylish music videos & live performances for her hit songs:
Last night’s MTV Video Music Awards were not a only an exciting celebration of current music, but a stunning, buzz-worthy feat of fashion for the red carpet & stage, including the likes of Taylor Swift in a transparent, diamond encrusted Oscar de a Renta mini dress—the night’s big winner whose major announcement of her upcoming album Midnights will be released on October 21st; rapper Lizzo whose navy Ursula-inspired voluminous gown by Jean Paul Gaultier Couture is the talk of Twitter; singer & actress Sabrina Carpenter in a glitzy retro cut-out dress by Moschino & towering platforms; & model Ashley Graham who celebrated her physique in a Houghton by Katharine Polka black cut-out halter dress. However, the most show-stopping look of the red carpet belonged to rapper Lil Nas X’s opulent, feathered Harris Reed ensemble, including a gravity-defying headdress & tiered skirt.

Just because summer is almost over, that doesn’t mean the fun has to end. This summer’s best empowering dance anthems are still hot, so grab that playlist & get moving! Particularly, one pop artist whose star meter keeps rising is three-time Grammy winner Dua Lipa, who celebrates her 27th birthday today.
Her past & present smash hits, including “Sweetest Pie” with Megan Thee Stallion, “Levitating” featuring Da Baby (my favorite!), “New Rules, “Don’t Start Now,” & “Break My Heart,” are just some of the British singer’s best jams that prove her vocal range, lyrical versatility, musical relevance, & staying power as a compelling & feel-good pop artist.
Additionally, the music videos for these songs, & more, recall the TRL days of over-the-top choreography, fashionably playful costumes, & futuristic plot twists, making them major style inspiration sources from the club girl inside us all dying to shake things up.
So…what’s your favorite Dua Lipa song & video? Turn up the volume & watch the 10 stylish music videos below to get your week started!
Singer and actress Olivia Newton-John passed away yesterday at the age of 73. The beloved Australian star had been battling cancer on & off since the early 1990s, but her legacy will continue to brighten the lives & imaginations of audiences forever with her memorable roles as Sandy in Grease & Kira in Xanadu, along with her 26 studio albums. Aside from Olivia’s remarkable stage & big screen talents, she remains one of fashion’s most underrated & timeless icons, especially after such a long career that endured through many decades of fashion risks, frills, & hairstyles!
Whether Olivia was channeling the mod looks of the 60s, bell-bottoms & peasant dresses of the 70s, pastels & sparkle in the 80s, or tailored menswear inspiration, Olivia’s style has inspired even today’s trendsetters & entertainers. Many of Olivia’s past outfits are similar what we see now on stars like Gigi Hadid, Hailee Steinfeld, Drew Barrymore, & Keira Knightley!

I missed posting last week b/c of the nasty hurricane, but there’s been so much going on in fashion, it’s hard to pick just 10 stories to talk about. Of course, so much has caught my eye on Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter, but I’ve tried to narrow it down to the must-see stories that all Style Darlings need to know! What stories are trending in your social network? Happy Styling!
American designer Tom Ford has been everywhere lately, but his eponymous collections are usually kept hush-hush & shared with an exclusive bunch of his closest pals in the business, as I’ve recently learned from an article on In Style. In a creative new way to show off his latest Spring-Summer 2013 Collection, the A Single Man-director has brought his vision to life with a percussion-infused music video. The collection’s 29 looks are strictly black & white with rare pops of cobalt, peach, & metallics, however hardened with patent, leather, & tailored menswear details. Take a look at the video below & share this innovative display of what’s to come for next season! Happy Styling!
Solange Knowles has broken away from her big sis Beyonce’s shadow since her last album in 2008, Sol-Angel & the Hadley St. Dreams, but it’s time to take another look at her blend of fashion & music with her latest single “Losing You.” Filmed on the streets of Cape Town, South Africa, the Madewell spokesmodel is stylish while crooning to the dance / pop track with the help of designer duds from Diane von Furstenberg, J.Crew, Kenzo, Suno, & Opening Ceremony.
A month ago, I shared images of Lana Del Rey‘s latest venture, her ad campaign for H&M, featuring vintage-inspired looks & a gorgeous pink angora sweater!

I’m a big Carrie Underwood fan… fan of her music & her enviable red carpet style! I have to say that her music videos are among some of my favorites to watch b/c the American Idol winner is just so magnetic in front of the camera. She was meant to wear stylish duds & belt out the big notes, which is why I’m featuring her latest music video for “Good Girl” here on Style Darling.
Also, she’s been on my mind after reading the very intelligent and insightful article on her for the April issue of Selfmagazine- one of my favorite go-to sources for healthy living tips. The singer talks about how she made the change from being a vegetarian to becoming mostly vegan. Also, she’s a positive role model for women everywhere b/c of her confidence and down-to-earth attitude, all of which is very evident in the article.
Getting back to the music… Of course, I’ll be including this video for “Good Girl” in a future post of Carrie’s Top 10 Most Stylish Videos at some point, but this video has just recently been released & you have to see it! If you love female-empowering music, country music, or well-style videos, then this is one meant for you!
