If there’s one celebrity who can literally pull off practically any look and constantly serves as a source of fashion inspiration for many, it’s definitely Rihanna! Therefore it came as no surprise when Rihanna was named the most powerful celebrity fashion influencer in Lyst’s 2017 Year in Fashion report.
According to the report, Rihanna helped spike searches for various designers like Puma, Off-White, Gucci and Molly Goddard, the designer behind those princess-inspired tulle dresses we’ve seen Rihanna wear both on and off the red carpet.
For the annual report Lyst tracked more than 100 million searches; crunching the queries, page views and sales data across 5 million fashion products from 12,000 designers and stores. From Gucci to gingham, sneakers to sequins, Lyst’s data reveals what you wanted to wear in 2017.
