Though Rihanna has been known to be quite the hair chameleon, her latest style—poufy, red and big—may be our new favorite. The singer first revealed her new look via Twitter while working on a music video for “S&M,” a track off her new album Loud. Then last night, she appeared in Los Angeles almost unrecognizable under her voluminous curls (shown). But Rihanna isn’t the only celebrity to rock big, bold hair in recent years. Check out a gallery of our favorite big hair looks.
Designer Doo.Ri Chung (inset), who has dressed Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried and Megan Fox, teamed up with jewelry designer Melissa Joy Manning to create a line of eco-friendly jewelry that just landed in stores. “Fallen spider webs were a key theme in the development of Doo.Ri’s collection,” Manning told InStyle of the pieces, which debuted at Doo.Ri’s spring 2011 fashion show and are made of recycled silver in Manning’s eco-certified Berkeley, California studio. “I had been independently documenting webs found in nature, so this was an ideal collaboration that came together easily under our collective efforts.” The cuffs, necklaces and rings are available online at LaGarconne.com.

The accessories on Gossip Girl always catch our eye, which is why we’re thrilled to find out that one of the show’s stars is launching her own handbag line! Kelly Rutherford, whose style we love as her TV alter-ego Lily van der Woodsen, created a five-piece line of clutches and totes for QVC. “My priority is to design timeless pieces that women of all ages can wear,” Rutherford told InStyle exclusively. “I designed the bags for the chic working mom as well as the sophisticated urban girl on-the-go.” The collection, which she describes as “affordable luxury,” includes an evening clutch and satchel (shown), ranging from $130 to $199. But the big question is… would Lily wear them? “Lily would own the bags in every color,” she said. “They are priced so well, why not? Plus, they go with everything.” Rutherford’s line launches on QVC February 25th at 8/7c. Click through the gallery to see an exclusive preview of her collection!
