5 times Rihanna looked like your favourite Nintendo character

Is there anything she can't do?

October 6, 2017

Nintendo fans went nuts when the SNES Classic came on the market ahead of the holiday rush. But for the legendary Japanese electronic and gaming company, the most interesting thing to happen to the brand actually comes from the depths of the online underground, and it’s a swerve we should have seen coming. Queen RiRi is the master of Nintendo cosplay and we’re all for it.

Take a closer look at the Giambattista Valli gown she wore to the 2015 GRAMMYs and you’ll see glaring similarities to Princess Peach’s own cotton candy pink frock. Remember when Rihanna stopped the show at the Metropolitan Gala in her Guo Pei-inspired dress? It’s Princess Daisy reincarnated. Toad? Rihanna’s got that to.
