Rihanna “Runs This Town” in Her Flutter by Jill Golden Earrings
To finish off her dark, apocalyptic, riotous looks on Jay-Z’s “Run This Town” video (in which she appears alongside label mate Kanye West), chanteuse Rihanna requested a gunmetal-plated pair of Flutter by Jill Golden’s new Albert Triple Bullet Spike earrings (pictured above).
The earrings work perfectly with her goth-meets-rebel-meets dominatrix styling in the turf war-themed video. Her edgy, militant styling consists of outfits like: a short-sleeved, oversize black hoodie with a military-meets-marching band gold embroidery paired with garter belts and thigh-high black stockings; a back turtleneck worn with a Black Panther-esque beret, with a short black veil peaking out from underneath the hat and covering half her face; and a black leotard worn with a cropped white fur vest, and accessorized with all-black shades covered in pyramid-like studs, a belt featuring rows of bullet-like casings, and black leather, over-the-knee boots.
The Mad Max-meets-Gladiator-meets-Warriors cinematography plays up all the militant details in the video — right down to Rihanna’s bold, rebellious jewelry choices. For a butter shot of the earrings, check out the 2:59 point on this video clip.
Judging from these earrings, style victory is definitely on Ri-Ri’s mind. Still have questions about who is running this town tonight?
