Rihanna - Rihanna Loves Rod Stewart's Style
Rihanna admits 67-year-old rocker Rod Stewart is one of her style icons, and reveals she preferred wearing boys clothes until she was 14.
Rihanna takes fashion inspiration from rocker Rod Stewart.
The 24-year-old 'S&M' hitmaker - who is famed for her towering heels and raunchy outfits - has several fashion muses including the 67-year-old 'Maggie May' hitmaker.
Naming her style icons, she said: ''ChloÃ« Sevigny is so sick. The Olsen twins are sick too. Debbie Harry, definitely, and Vivienne Westwood is top notch.
''There are a couple of guys though - Johnny Depp's style is just effortless and, for me, Rod Stewart gets it right.''
The self-confessed former tom-boy admits she a penchant for boy's clothes until her mid-teenage years.
She explained: ''As a little girl, I only ever wanted to wear my brothers' clothes.
''I grew up with my brothers and boy cousins, so it was only when I met my best friend at 14 and discovered fashion magazines that I got into heels. Before that, I always went out in sneakers and pants with a T-shirt rolled up. I was never girly.''
Despite having been linked with Ashton Kutcher and ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, Rihanna insists she is single and believes her male-mind is often the downfall of her relationships.
In an interview with Company magazine, she said: ''I understand boys and, most of the time, I think like them.
''It can get in the way because guys become more sensitive than I am, and that's just so weird to me, and annoying!''
