This Teen Went As Rihanna For "Celebrity Day" And Gained Rihanna's Seal Of Of Approval
“How she do me betta than me doe??"
Meet 17-year-old student Shania Ruedas Bernal from Anaheim, California, who pulled out all the stops for Celebrity Day at her school.
Bernal told BuzzFeed News that the day was part of "spirit week", a time when "students show off their school pride by decorating or dressing up for an occasion, usually under a theme."
Bernal said she was struggling over who to dress up as, until she stumbled upon an old picture of Rihanna at a promotional party for her album Anti. "Obviously Rihanna looked amazing and then I realised that I could pull together an outfit that'll look very similar to hers," she said. And without question, Bernal nailed it.
When she shared the picture on Twitter, people seriously loved it. Her tweet gained over 47,000 likes and 20,000 retweets, which Bernal said she couldn't believe.
She added: "I can be really insecure and bashful, so of course my first instinct was... oh my god, what if someone eventually makes fun of me". Because of this fear, she temporarily made her Twitter account private.
