Rihanna has tested out a whole lot of different looks this summer, from Givenchy menswear to limited edition T-shirts, but this one might just be out favorite of them all.

At last night's Opening Ceremony party to celebrate the brand's spring '14 fashion show, RiRi parties 'til dawn in a grey velvet dress, polka dot thigh high tights, and black double height creepers--also known as our '90s dream outfit. She accessorized with a black chocker and a ton of rings, and wore her hair in a black pixie cut with a mullet a la Edie Campbell, the Marc Jacobs' model. This might be the first (and only) time that we will be pro-mullet, and that's because Rihanna just looks so damn cool with this hair and this outfit.

We're going to use the singer's latest look as a way to be positive about the transition into fall--if we can get through October wearing nothing but velvet dresses and polka dot tights, well, saying goodbye to summer won't be that bad.
