Style Scoop: Rihanna’s Victoria’s Secret Ensemble, Coco Rocha’s New Reality Show, M.I.A’s Collaboration with Versace and More Style News (GALLERY)
Rihanna got more attention during her performance at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show than most of the stunning supermodels. The singer’s ensembles were off the charts with sex appeal as she showed off her quirky-yet-couture style.
During her performance of “Diamonds,” Rihanna wore a pair of vintage Chanel pearl round sunglasses from Depuis 1924 that retail for a staggering $3,200. The rare vintage frames flawlessly matched the singer’s pearl choker and framed her beautiful face.
While Michelle Obama recycled a Michael Kors dress from 2008 for President Barack Obama’s victory speech on Tuesday, their daughters combined high street with blossoming American fashion designers for their outfits. Sasha Obama donned one of her mother’s favorite designers, a Chris Benz emerald skirt, with a Zara bow blouse and bright green J. Crew flats.
The designer item is an expensive departure from the head-to-toe J. Crew ensemble she wore four years earlier. Older sister Malia also sported a Zara top and J. Crew flats but paired her look with an ASOS blue full skirt. [People Style Watch]

The show will be similar to American’s Next Top Model, where each mentor coaches a group of aspiring models through photo shoots and contests. The Face is set to air on Oxygen in February 2013.
