Idolator Halloween: How To Dress Like Rihanna In “Pour It Up”!

Pop stars and outrageous outfits go hand in hand, which makes it easy as pumpkin pie to dress up as one for Halloween. Having trouble deciding which artist to choose from? We’re here to help you pick from the most iconic looks from 2013, and to show you fun ways to recreate them.

Rihanna “Bal Gal” Fenty is the Queen of Ratchetry (have you seen her Instagram?), and she took her well-deserved title to the stripper-approved next level in her racy video for “Pour It Up.” With our Halloween DIY tutorial, you will have everyone seeing “Dolla Sign$”! Denim thong sold separately.

What You’ll Need:

  • As for that infamous denim thong she wears in the video, there are many ways to achieve the look. Grab a pair of Daisy Dukes from a thrift shop (or Target) and 1. Throw them in a blender to recreate the ripped effect  or 2. Take a butcher’s knife and hack away! Make sure you wear a substantial thong underneath the denim version (you don’t want chaffing – ouch!) like this lace one from H&M for $7.

  • Rihanna pays homage to Cher in her “If I Could Turn Back Time” video with this fishnet getup, which is oddly the least revealing outfit from the video. First, you’ll need a base underneath the fishnet costume. Just because Riri posed naked with it on, doesn’t give you should do the same! Pair this pleather bustier from Forever 21 for $17 with black boy shorts underneath this long-sleeved fishnet body-stocking for $8 to pull off the singer’s scandalous look.
