Ok guys, who remembers Rihanna in THAT amazing gorilla frock by Christopher Kane? It has to be hands-down one of my favourite Rihanna looks to date, and despite the influx of ‘toothy’ tees and dresses since, nothing beats a huge gorilla on a sheer-sleeved dress, if you want to stay true to the original that is. If you’ve ever dreamed of bagging the same frock on a lower budget, and want to truly give RiRi a run for her money, then today my friends, is your lucky day.
While this Christopher Kane circa 2009 frock was amazing on Rihanna, we don’t have her wallet, or the ability to go back in time and snatch this up pronto. What we can take from this though, is inspiration and a leaf out of Rihanna’s book when it comes to wearing this- less is more. With a gorilla plastered across your dress, minimal accessories are pretty much mandatory to avoid overload.
This Karma Clothing version is a dead ringer for Christopher Kane’s number, but it’ll set you back a fraction of the price. This £14.99 alternative is available right now, has the sheer sleeves that keep it slightly more demure, and of course that all-important gorilla graphic on the front. If you want to save some cash, look fabulous and channel RiRi all in one go, there’s no better way.
That’s it for today’s designer double post, be sure to let me know what you think of today’s pick by leaving me a comment and/or tweeting me @MillieDelacoe. Until next time…
