Singer, actress, clothing and shoe designer, perfumer and humanitarian Rihanna Fenty has now been labeled plus-size for whatever reason. The past few months it seems people have felt the need to body shame her. Most notably blogger Sandra Rose is the latest to stamp Rihanna with the label of plus-size.
During her latest promotional tour stop for her upcoming film “Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets” in Los Angeles the star wore a Giambatista Valli Couture gown.
Sandra Rose a blogger notorious for using salacious content/titles to drive traffic to her site, labeled the recap of the movie premiere ‘Plus Size Singer Rihanna Stuns at ‘Valerian’ Premiere’.
The Rihanna Navy didn’t take to kindly to the post and dear old Sandra’s mentions were in shambles (po lil tink tink). to which she quickly followed up with another post to address the controversy.
In her post ‘fanMAIL: Rihanna is Not Plus-Size – You are BIGGER Than Her’ Sandra uses the bs “fashion industry” standard approach to justify her comments.
“If Rihanna is not plus-size, what is she? Let’s examine the fashion industry standard for plus-size models. According to PLUS Model magazine, plus size is defined as sizes 10-14; super-size is sizes 16 and up.
At 5-ft-9 and about 160 pounds, Rihanna fits the category of plus-size. She’s still a beautiful young lady, but as Sir Mix-a-Lot would say, “Red beans and rice didn’t miss her.”
A bit harsh and ignorant to say the least. As a plus size woman I’m sure we can agree that Rihanna is not Plus Size. She has however, gained a few pounds. So when did she become fat, or even over weight & if she was, what is the big damn deal???
