And here at Entertainmentwise, we've sussed exactly where she got her style inspiration from for this outfit – the queen of copycats herself, Kim Kardashian.
It was Kimmy, after all, who first stepped out in a pair of over-the-knee egregious looking snakeskin boots by Christian Louboutin during Paris Fashion Week earlier this year, and we hate the boots now just as much as then. Not even RiRi wearing a similar pair can change our minds.
Rihanna worked the London scene as she partied in the high-end Rose club in what she felt was an appropriate outfit to mingle with the hip youth of the British city, geared up in a baggy black jumper emblazoned with the word 'Trapstar' in a rock'n'roll themed typeface.

She teamed the edgy jumper with a burgundy leather skirt to work the a/w 2012 trends, and gave a big nod to one of the biggest trends this season, snakeskin.
But in classic RiRi style, she failed to channel it in a subtle, elegant manner, such as Alexa Chung with a small snakeskin clutch to bring a flash of trend to an outfit, and instead went all out to prove she was down with the FROW in the humongous, garish booties.
She accessorised the look with a chunky gold chain a la Rita Ora and wore her raven hair in a natural, curly style with a slick of blood red lippie to complete the biker chick look.
