We certainly think Rihanna is a style icon on the making — who else could change their look so many times and have it work so well? — and Seventeen agrees with us! The singer is on the magazine’s December cover and is honored inside for being in their Style Awards. Rihanna tells Seventeen that she’s always been into fashion. “Well, I love playing with fashion. I’m very spontaneous — the best outfits from me come from not thinking about it. When I was growing up in Barbados, I actually learned about fashion from reading magazines and tearing out stuff that I thought was hot.” And of course, she keeps getting ready for big events fun by hanging out with her girls. “I always turn the music on. I just blast it. And it’s always fun when my girlfriends are around! You do each other’s makeup and each other’s hair, and you help each other pick out clothes. That’s the fun part. It’s more fun getting ready than actually being at the party.” Other trendsetters honored are Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Jordin Sparks, Fergie, Lauren Conrad, Ashlee Simpson and Lil Mama.
