Rihanna admires Westwood

Rihanna thinks Vivienne Westwood's style is "top notch".

The stunning songstress has revealed the stars she looks to for fashion inspiration. Rihanna - who is famed for her head-turning aesthetic - garners ideas from both female and male icons.

"Chloë Sevigny is so sick. The Olsen twins are sick too. Debbie Harry, definitely, and Vivienne Westwood is top notch! There are a couple of guys though – Johnny Depp’s style is just effortless and, for me, Rod Stewart gets it right," she told Company magazine.

Rihanna claims her fashion sense is "ever evolving". The 24-year-old star likes to experiment with a range of different looks, thanks to her male-dominated family.

"As a little girl, I only ever wanted to wear my brother’s clothes. I grew up with my brothers and [male] cousins so it was only when I met my best friend at 14 and discovered fashion magazines that I got into heels," she said.

"Before that, I always went out in sneakers and pants with a T-shirt rolled up and my cap low. I was never girly."

Rihanna doesn't care much for dieting. She prefers to rely on her good genes when it comes to her enviable figure.

"Honestly, I don’t diet or work out. I’m eating horribly and, I hate to say this, but it has to be my metabolism. When I was on tour I started gaining a lot of weight - it was crazy. I wasn’t sleeping, I was bloated and taking medication to look after my voice," she said.

    2015 Acura TLX blends two sedans into one alphabet soup

    Nearly three decades have passed since Honda gave us the car we didn’t know we wanted: a fancified Accord called the Legend, which Honda sold under a newly created luxury brand called Acura. Acura, along with the Lexus and Infiniti brands that followed, proceeded to turn the luxury market on its nose. But since then, everyone from Hyundai to Bentley has stepped up its luxury game while Acura got a bit lost in ubiquity with a cadre of similar-looking products, all with confusing alphabet soup names like ILX, TSX, TL and RLX.

    2015 Dodge Charger goes under the knife

    Over the past decade, Chrysler's rear-wheel-drive sedans have managed to survive a bankruptcy and three different corporate overlords. Thanks to the original stoutness of the Mercedes-assisted chassis, and the periodic updates that keep them from seeming like 21st-century versions of the Ford Crown Victoria, the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger combo still draw in fans. Today, Dodge revealed yet another redesign for the 2015 Charger — and for an old car, it's quite the change.

It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
