This is some good ole Hot Peppermint Tea concerning Rihanna’s infamous DOOBIE WRAP! via @lovebscott
Rihanna’s hairstylist, Ursula Stephen, spoke with ELLE about Rihanna’s now infamous doobie from her appearance at the 2013 American Music Awards.
Since the style has created such a controversy, Urusla took the opportunity to clear up a few of the unanswered questions and offer a little more insight as to whose decision it was to actually wear the wrap.
It was actually Rihanna’s idea. She had her mind made up! Honestly, I was a little hesitant but I knew she could pull it off, so I was all for it.
I knew it would get a reaction but I wasn’t sure if it would be positive or negative. A doobie on the red carpet has never been done before so I knew it could have gone either way.
Sure. I mean, it’s already been done. I see girls on the street rocking them all the time shopping, eating, etc. It’s just never been seen in a formal setting.
Yes, the ’30s were all about [the wrap]! The pins helped to elevate the look from just your average doobie.
Everyone has an opinion. However, the doobie has been worn to Bergdorf Goodman. They just haven’t been paying attention. And it’s been around since the ’30s. Part of my job is to know eras, trends and fashion, and to keep looks alive by adding a modern twist.
Of course! As an artist, you can’t take yourself too seriously. It’s about evolving, having fun, feeling beautiful and letting the look interpret the feeling, mood and the music! I feel like we have done everything. However, there is a mental list of “looks,” not styles, that we want to try. More iconic shit is on the list.
THE SHADE IS REAL
