LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Porsha Stewart has been named “Style Maven of the Year”. But it is Rihanna today who is named by the W Magazine as fashion’s current trendsetter as well, LALATE can report.
Porsha Stewart and Rihanna are named as fashion’s leaders this month, but by two very different groups. W Magazine’s September covergirl is singer Rihanna. In a statement to LALATE today, W Magazine reports that “Rihanna, fashion’s wildest child, who proves time and again that rules are meant to be broken, graces the cover of W’s September issue.” The Magazine proclaims that Rihanna is currently the “World’s Wildest Style Icon”.
The magazine’s editor describes Rihanna’s impact on fashion currently. “Rihanna came [to the shoot] with her own mental mood board, channeling the power of Grace Jones and the sophistication of Josephine Baker,” editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi indicates to news.
So how did Rihanna prepare for her photo shoot? The magazine tells LALATE that “The singer, who no longer has an instagram account to serve as her inspirational outlet, was eager to let loose with fur, wild make up, and extravagant accessories for W.”
Meantime, Porsha has been named a fashion leader as well, just not by a national magazine. Rather the Bronner Brothers International Hair Show in Atlanta honored her as “Style Maven of the Year.” Porsha told news “I want to Thank #BronnerBrothers & Atlanta for Honoring me with the Style Maven Of The Year Award!” Porsha accepted her “Maven” award wearing the above outfit.
