Hit or Miss?

It's double whammy this time. Boy, I sure hope Rihanna hasn't hit her peak, making two fashion faux pas (as far as I'm concerned) in the same week.
(left) Rihanna at the InStyle and Grammy Salute to Fashion. You know what? The one thing that makes this outfit a miss? The haircut. I don't think it looks good at all. Don't get me wrong, I usually really like this haircut, it can and does look great on lots of people. I just don't like it on Rihanna. She would have totally pulled this off with her signature asymmetrical bob, now no longer.
(right) Rihanna at the Grammys. Again, it's the haircut. But, even with the bob, I still don't think she would have looked too hot. It's just the wrong dress for her, in general. The colour looks great, but the cut and overall shape are just wrong for Rihanna.
But what do you think? Did the umbrella-toting-high-noting-singer get it right? Or oh so wrong?

I just honestly can't get behind any kind of romper/jumpsuit. They very rarely work and usually only because of the extreme confidence of the wearer.

The dress is a bit better but still trying too hard.

I don't know. I seem to be 1 in a million fashionistas that love jumpsuits of anykind.

I thought I was the only one who hated that lace number. Almost every blog I went on thought she looked great. Do not want. I was so disappointed with hat she wore to the grammy's. I really wanted to like it. But I couldnt bring myself to cause I know she could have done a lot better. Still a Rihanna stan tho

Secretista: don't worry, you're not alone - i love rompers too! ;)
But, really, it's just the hair that let her down, IMO unfortunately.
Bianca: you're not alone either, lol. I can't believe other blogs thought she looked great. What is the world coming to?? Lol.
Ambika: you're right - the dress is a bit try hard isn't it? Which is strange, because Rihanna usually doesn't have to try hard at all...

don´t like it either.
it´s that sienna miller in factory girl cut and you really can see how different it looks on the girls.

sienna looked just cute, french and petite while rihanna scares me a little ,looking quite bully..
