Steal Her Style: Rihanna

I'll be honest--Rihanna's been looking a little, well, overdone in the fashion department the last couple of weeks. But I personally think she looks flawless above at the opening of the Derek Lam Boutique launch on May 6 in NYC. The chic ensemble, by Lam of course, looks like an updated version of something Bianca Jagger would have worn in the '70s and I love it. Then, Rihanna puts her rock-star-stamp on it by sporting highlighted tresses, bright red lipstick and oversized shades.

I also love her jewelry choices. The long 18-karat gold and pearl necklace is by Yvel, and the length perfectly highlights the cut of the jacket. She then wisely opts for discreet diamond cluster studs and a single gold square bangle that won't overwhelm the outfit.

Luckily, Portero is a one-stop-shop that can recreate this look for less. Here are three great options:

--David Yurman 18k Yellow Gold South Sea Pearl Lantana Chain Necklace

--M+J Savitt 18k White Gold Pave Diamond Square Stud Earrings

--14k Yellow Gold Hinged 0.50 ctw Diamond Bangle Bracelet
