Currently the face of Balmain's spring 2014 campaign, it's no secret that Rihanna is a fashion force. As much known for her daring street style as her memorable red carpet looks, Rihanna's also clearly been accepted into the high-fashion world -- Karl Lagerfeld reportedly even flew her to Paris and Dallas to sit front-row at two of Chanel's recent fashion shows.
