Hot! or Hmm…: Rihanna’s Westfield Christmas Lights Blue and Gray Striped Acne Mens Spring 2013 Outfit and Blue Raf Simons Coat

Rihanna switched on the Christmas lights at Westfield Stratford City shopping center in London in a striped top and pants ensemble by Acne along with a blue Raf Simons coat:

She completed with red lips, a red mani, and coordinating blue sunglasses.

Interestingly enough, Rihanna’s striped look debuted in Acne’s Spring 2013 menswear runway show:

Raf Simons’s eponymous line comprises menswear, and he thus presented this similar coat on his Fall 2012 runway:

Rihanna made the menswear ensemble girly with her slick hairstyle and bright lips. It’s certainly interesting and a welcome departure from her ‘Timberlands and a snarl steeze as of late. Still, not sure how I feel about this!

What do you think?
