Rihanna's Fashion Week Debut Described As "Horrific" And "Ghastly"

The Rihanna for River Island autumn/winter 2013 collection was also referred to as "porny" in a review — you'll see why — but are the clothes really that bad?

Rihanna's line for River Island's Autumn/Winter 2013 collection marks her debut as a designer and the reviews are mixed. Here's Women's Wear Daily:

None of it looked expensive, but if Rihanna's see-if-I-care attitude is a free gift with purchase, the collection should do fine.

Refinery 29:

Her style DNA was infused into every stitch of the fabric. From the thigh-high-split maxi dresses and not-for-the-faint-hearted mesh vests to the '90s-inspired crop tops and matching short shorts, the looks could only have been designed by this woman.

The Daily Beast:

Rihanna's collection for River Island as brought forth in London tonight was a horror show. ... If you really, really like belly buttons, if you are totally nuts for navels, then this could be the collection for you.

Whether you like the clothes or not, they certainly are true to RiRi. Take a look at the show below:
