A style showdown between Whitney Port and Rihanna is clash of fashion titans, albeit very different ones. We love these two. But there can be only one winner.

Amazingly, both The City star and fashion designer and the pop star manage to make their looks work well with wildly printed, black and white harem pants.

MC Hammer would be proud ... if he could afford an Internet connection and read this. Just kidding. Probably. Dude was in serious financial trouble for a time.

Anyway, who looks better? Check out the Whitney and Rihanna pics and vote!

We profiled Rihanna's red hair earlier this week.

We also took a listen (and liking) to her hot new collaboration with Eminem from his upcoming album, Recovery. The girl can definitely be pretty bad ass.

But inside is also a fashionista waiting to come out.

Gracing the cover of the July issue of Elle, Rihanna muses on fashion and has a few things to say about glamorous, often unattainable - ideals of designers.

"I respect designers who aren't afraid to go outside the box," she says.

"I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited," the singer continued. "I thought, Okay, I can work that, for sure."

Rihanna in Elle ... and in concert.

Of course, the beauty is leaving her mark on couture, and not just with the shocking ensembles she wears live. She's become a high-end icon as well.

"There are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry. One of the things I respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with me."

"I'm a black girl on a fashion spread for Gucci. That was a big deal."

Who will prevail in a fierce fashionista showdown of Parisian proportions?

We have no idea what that even means, but what we do know is that Victoria Beckham and Rihanna both look fabulous in Burberry trenches - both worn in Paris no less!

The designer and wife of David Beckham was spotted in hers recently, while the touring singer wore the same, but toughened it up a bit during a visit to the French city.

Rihanna performed in Paris Wednesday, and is making headlines once again - and not for falling on stage or for a mystery hospitalization this time.

The star, who recently started dating Matt Kemp, may be apart from her L.A. Dodger beau, but gives him plenty of pictures from the road at least.

Her album, Rated R, may be aptly titled, as her concert attire seems appropriate for mature audiences only. Yowza. What do you think, hot or not?

Vote in our survey below, fashion critics ...

Skinny jeans are all the rage. Or at least enough of a rage to be sported by a couple of beautiful young stars recently. Which gal looked best in them, though?

Rihanna stepped out in London in MiH's "Olso" jeans last year, while Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester kept it casual in the same pair for a flight to Los Angeles.

They're both gorgeous, but who wore it best? Vote in the poll below - and if you're a fan of Leighton's show, follow this link for all the latest Gossip Girl spoilers!

Some style showdowns are lopsided. Ke$ha and Heidi Klum? Come on. The eccentric singer is going to get blown out of the water faster than you can say Tik Tok.

Rihanna vs. Carrie Underwood is a tougher one to handicap, however.

Nominated for best rap collaboration with Jay-Z and Kanye West, Rihanna paired her usual fiery hair with an Elie Saab Haute Couture gown, Neil Lane diamond earrings, bracelet and rings mixed with two Diamond in the Rough rings.

Sorry you weren't there, Matt Kemp. But she looks great in photos!

Carrie, meanwhile, recently got engaged and looked the part of a would-be bride last night in a Georges Chakra gown with silver leather straps. Just gorgeous.

Who looked better, though? Vote in our survey below and decide:

Compared to what she normally wears - including on stage this very night - Rihanna's red carpet fashion at the American Music Awards was downright tame.

Still, the singer's origami-like black, white and gold dress drew raves from fashion critics. Also garnering praise (from us at least)? The lovely Kristen Bell.

In contrast to Rihanna, she keeps it very simple ... and why not when you're so darn cute. The actress and Gossip Girl narrator looked classically gorgeous.

This is celebrity fashion at its finest.

Looking casual in a black tank top and no bra, Rihanna's nipple rings are on display thanks to flash bulbs from the celebrity gossip media following her every move.

Which makes you think it's all on purpose. Shocking.

It's as if she wants to prove beyond a doubt that those Rihanna nude pictures that surfaced earlier in the year, but were never commented on, are really her.

Check out the latest Rihanna fashion statement below, then click on the images for an even closer inspection if you can't see it (and are into that stuff) ...

Some people in fashion say that the ’80s are back. So are the ’60s, ’70s and ’90s, and soon enough the '00s, according to other "experts," but no matter.

The new cover of Italian Vogue, featuring Rihanna splashing water from a bucket, or something, and looking hella fierce, channels ’80s icon Grace Jones.

We mean fierce in the literal sense.

In the shoot, by Steven Klein, Rihanna looks like she's on steroids with the outfit and angular makeup she's wearing. Or maybe it's just that bad ass glare ...

EXTREME RIHANNA: We don't know what the hell kind of couture this is, but Rihanna definitely shows off her slightly insane, bad ass side on the cover of Vogue.

Perhaps this is simply a strategy to make sure Chris Brown abides by the terms of his probation and keeps his distance. Scare the living crap out of the guy.

Love her. Hate her. Say what you want about her.

Kristin Cavallari is coming to The Hills. And the 22-year-old is ready to shake things up as the show's new focal point, replacing the retired Lauren Conrad.

In this case, however, she's not feuding with LC, but going toe-to-toe in a fashion clash with Rihanna. The reality TV star wore a Charley 5.0 dress to dinner in W. Hollywood, while RiRi rocked the denim tube dress during a day of shopping in N.Y.C.

Who looked better, Kristin Cavallari or Rihanna? Vote below ...
