rihanna (shades)*Rihanna knows how to show ‘em whose boss. The singer, in all of her rebellious glory, was spotted recently wearing a pair of rare vintage Chanel gun motif earrings.

The gold danglies take the brand right over fashion’s edge, but somehow holds the peace of classic Chanel.

She told Elle U.K. that the gun is a symbol of her strength after she got a gun tattoo after the infamous Chris Brown beat down.

“Everybody wanted to know what was happening in my life,” she said. “’Is she a drug addict?’ No. ‘Is she an alcoholic?’ No. ‘Is she a victim?’ No.”

“That’s why I got the gun. It was a symbol of strength. I’ll never be a victim.”

Bold of course. Edgy. And totally Rihanna.

The set was supplied by Depuis 1924 International, a supplier of some of the rarest collectable items in the world, and is known for the world’s largest vintage Chanel products. Apparently, Rihanna’s got a hold of some extremely rare earrings. But we found some doable copycats that are much more affordable and will do the fashion job.
