Rihanna Bigs Up Princess Diana's "Gangsta" Style: "She Killed It"

Singer Rihanna is often spotted bedecked with bling, including ringz, chainzz, grillzzz you name it, but whereas many hiphop artists may at the most aspire to royalty and accessorise like they're sovereignty, turns out RiRi doesn't differentiate between her fellow gangster brethren and actual royalty.

Rihanna Praises The UK's Gansta Monarchy.

In her latest interview with Glamour magazine, Rihanna spoke of her admiration of the late Diana Princess of Wales, the former wife of Prince Charles, who died after a car crash in 1997.

The Barbadian 'Pour It Up' singer revealed that Princess Diana is her unlikely style icon, proclaiming "You know who is the best who ever did it? Princess Diana. She was like - she killed it. Every look was right. She was gangsta with her clothes. She had these crazy hats. She got oversize jackets. I loved everything she wore."

Whilst we doubt that raptastic street style was the exact look the elegant Peoples' Princess was going for, some of her big baseball jackets, busy multi-coloured knits and bright red Robin Hood boots she wore during her downtime wouldn't look totally out of place in a music video in the retro-obsessed present.

Rihanna is currently on the Australian leg of her 'Diamonds' world tour where she's been criticised for pulling a Justin Bieber and coming out on stage more than an hour late, which received boos from the irritated Aussi audience. She's next set to hit cities in New Zealand, South Africa and Puerto Rico before her tour culminates in a New Orleans final night on the 15th November.

The entire interview with Rihanna will be printed in the November issue of Glamour.
