Rihanna is a royalist! Sporting 80s-inspired curly hair and intense, lush makeup for the November issue of Glamour, the "Stay" singer, 25, lavishes praise on an icon from the "Me" decade and of all time, really: the late Princess Diana. The People's Princess, Rihanna said, tops her all-time best dressed list. "You know who is the best who ever did it? Princess Diana," Rihanna tells the magazine. "She was like-—she killed it," gushes Rihanna of Prince William and Prince Harry's beloved, timelessly stylish mom. "Every look was right. She was gangsta with her clothes. She had these crazy hats. She got oversize jackets. I loved everything she wore!"
The chart-topper is also a big fan of a more contemporary woman in the fashion department. "Oh my God, are you kidding me? Nicole Richie. She just pisses me off, she's so good," she raves of Richie, 32.
Talking up her new Bravo reality series Styled to Rock, Rihanna also admits her famous "fearlessness" was almost lost a few years ago. "I had to regain my fearlessness because it did go away for a little bit," she says, perhaps hinting at on-and-off boyfriend Chris Brown's early 2009 attack. "My mother said something to me a few years ago: 'I've seen something in your eyes I've never seen before: fear.' She was like, 'No, this is not you.' I just got back to being OK with myself."
The currently-single star, who recently told another outlet that she's done with partying, says she's looking forward — one day — to becoming a mother. "One day I will have kids," she says. I look forward to the day when I'm gonna be a mom. But I'm nowhere close. I don't even have a potential baby daddy!"
