She proudly sports the look on this month's Rolling Stone magazine, and it seems Rihanna is fairly enamoured with her new - slighty schizophrenic - look. The 24-year-old has become the proud owner of long, almost strawberry blonde extensions but only on one side of her head... so the shaved section still shows. It looks incredible on the stunning Bahan singer, and she pulled the look of insouciantly as she left New York on Thursday.
Fierce look: Rihanna showed off her new extensions - which seemed to have been lightened further - as she left New York on Wednesday.
Chic and cheerful: Rihanna wore a pair of comfortable desert boots for her trip to the airport from the Gansevoort Hotel in Manhattan
Strawberry blonde: Rihanna's hair matched her coat sleeves as she left the hotel in New York's trendy meatpacking district.
Extended appearance: Rihanna looked shocked no one seemed to recognise her at a Los Angeles airport.
In the interview, Rihanna appears to officially confirm they are an item again following Chris's split from model Karrueche Tran last October. After Chris was arrested for assaulting Rihanna on the way home from a pre-Grammys party in Los Angeles in February 2009, she admitted she wanted to punish him, even though she still loved him.
She explains: 'I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that. So when that (stuff) came back it hit me like a ton of bricks.
'Like, God, you’ve got to be kidding right now. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn’t bury the way I felt.'
The look: Rihanna worked this look for the cover of Rolling Stone, out on Thursday January 31
Finally: But ther attention loving star was all smiles when people finally started to realise who she was.
