Rihanna and Katy Perry were both on the list of MTV VMA winners.

The BFFs were clearly among the night's fashion winners, as well.

Rihanna's stunning white gown and newly-shortened hair were the talk of the show, even before she was seen kissing Chris Brown inside Staples Center.

Often known for outrageous getups, she looked tremendous, an angel of the night in a floor length white dress which still showed some skin, RiRi style.

Katy Perry, meanwhile, went for a subtly provocative look. Her floor length Elie Saab gown featured a plunging neckline and sheer train. Just smoking.

Rihanna covers the new issue of Harper's Bazaar and the star looks absolutely snake-like. Seriously. We are talking full-on reptilian up in here.

That or America's Next Top Model-esque. You be the judge.

Perhaps the most surprising thing about the cover is not the getup itself, but the fact that unlike the vast majority of Rihanna pics, she's clothed.

Seriously, when have you known her not to show skin?

Rihanna Harper's Bazaar Cover

Typically, our girl prefers scraps of cloth if she covers up at all, but here, she's gone full-scale(y) coverage. And animal print. Bizarre even for Bazaar.

For anyone out there interested, and we can't imagine who that might be, Rih is wearing a dress and boots by Tom Ford and a Repossi ear cuff.

You never know, even if it doesn't go mainstream, maybe this unique look of hers could inspire some unintentionally hilarious Chris Brown lyrics.

What do you think of Rihanna's Harper's Bazaar look?

Rihanna looks unbelievably sexy in new ads for Armani ... so sexy that some tabloids just assumed she had a body double, which she angrily denies.

The singer launched into an profane rant against UK celebrity gossip tabloid The Sun on her Twitter page, bashing it for asserting such a thing.

"Ok @thesunnewspaper, this is the only way I could say this to you!!! F—K YOU AND yo baggy ass condom," tweeted the 24-year-old star.

Mental note made: This is NOT a Rihanna body double!

The commercial finds Rih rollin' around in Armani undies, but the Sun claimed her breasts and arse actually belong to model Jahnassa Aicken.

The Sun said Jahnassa signed a nondisclosure agreement and that she filled in while the singer filmed her "We Found Love" video in Northern Ireland.

Infuriated, Rihanna tweeted, "Who is Jahnassa," then pointedly, "Does she have a tat on her hand too??" Clearly there is no love lost between the two.

Rihanna previously slammed the tabloid as "ass-hair" and "full of s—t" after it claimed she would scrap her U.K. festival gigs ... good times.

This is the best/worst advertisement for jeans of all time.

On the down side, you don't get much of a feel for the jeans themselves. How would you know Armani jeans are any better than your average brand, when they're barely even displayed, much less accentuated, in this commercial?

On the upside, Rihanna's mostly naked. Enjoy:

Are there any jeans visible in the ad? Does it matter?

Hey, if buying Armani jeans makes you think you can get a girl like that writhing around on a bed in her underwear, more power to you. Ad? Working.

The ad comes on the heels of yesterday's Rihanna topless pic, in which she also flaunted that fabulous figure. Hopefully this becomes a daily ritual.

Featuring her new song "Part of Me," Katy Perry's Grammy performance contained what many felt was a thinly-veiled shot at Russell Brand Sunday night.

Rihanna and Coldplay joined forces in a performance of "Princess of China" that didn't generate as much controversy, but was still very well received.

Which of the two stars will perform better in a red carpet style showdown, though? That's the question of the hour. At least on The Hollywood Gossip.

Rihanna, as you can see, showed serious skin. Katy? Not so much in a blue gown that matched her hair (obviously). But she made up for that later.

Who will win this couture clash of the pop star BFFs?! Your votes will decide. Choose your favorite style star in our latest Grammy Awards Fashion Face-Off!

Good girl gone bad Rihanna stars in a new Emporio Armani Underwear campaign, and the black and white photos are definitely provocative!

Which is the point of said ads, of course. We're guessing.

Starting off in a t-shirt and jeans, RiRi changes into a jean jacket with no bra and shorts, then a camisole, and finally just a bra and panties.

You get the idea. Click to enlarge the Rihanna pics below:

No word if she was smoking Kush prior to, during or after this shoot, but we have to say, Armani has a keeper in the 23-year-old singer.

For reasons unknown, the Dutch magazine Jackie recently referred to pop star Rihanna in an article as "the ultimate n---a bitch." The singer was not happy.

"Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you..." Rihanna tweeted yesterday at the fashion publication's editor, Eva Hoeke.

"F--K YOU!!!" she exclaimed ... dashes not included.

Prior to that concise sentiment, Rihanna had posted this lengthy missive: "@evajackie I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human rights! I find you disrespectful, and rather desperate!!"

"You ran out of legit, civilized information to print! There are 1000's of Dutch girls who would love to be recognized for their contributions to your country, you could have given them an article. Instead, u paid to print one degrading an entire race!"

"That's your contribution to this world! To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past! You put two words together, with the intent of abasement, that made absolutely no sense... 'N---A BITCH'?!"

The not-at-all amusing attempt at slang and "hey, girlfriend!" appreciation was not intended to be racist or degrading, according to the magazine.

Rihanna put on quite a show in a field in Ireland, where she filmed some super sexy scenes for a new music video and showed her American pride!

With her new single, "We Found Love," already hovering near the top of the iTunes chart, WE found one of our favorite bikini photos in some time.

Wearing a bandana-pattern two-piece underneath an open plaid shirt and torn jeans, Rihanna brought sexy to an otherwise "country" ensemble:

First Megan Fox. Then Victoria Beckham. Now Rihanna.

The pop singer is following in some seriously sexy footsteps baring (nearly) all in a new campaign for Armani Underwear as the new face/body of the brand.

Yesterday, her blond hair made its debut in one of the first photos to be released. Today, we've got a full set of photos of RiRi in jeans, lingerie and ... that's it.

Rihanna is going blond and masculine for a new Armani Jeans campaign.

After becoming the latest spokesperson, the singer made her way to a photo shoot in New York yesterday. Armani has already released the first of what will surely be many Rihanna pictures from the upcoming campaign for the brand.

Here's the image, shot in monochrome by Steven Klein:
