Rihanna is a style chameleon and she has had many versatile looks since bursting into the limelight in 2005 with her smash hit ‘Pon De Replay’ but one thing is consistent about ‘BadgalRiri’, she’s more than a fashion icon, she’s a trendsetter.

Riri broke the internet on Tuesday when she unveiled the September issue of British Vogue - making history as the first black woman to grace the cover of the British publication.

While the world was celebrating the Riri's grand milestone, many South Africans took note of her thin line eyebrows, stating that women of Mzansi beat RiRi on this one as the trend started in SA a while back.

Sorry @rihanna but @kuliroberts did it first

Although the thin line eyebrows have made rounds in the past few years, ladies are urged not to shave off their eyebrows just to draw them back. After all, not everyone can get away with anything like Riri does! 

If Rihanna makes those eyebrows a trend then I give up on y’all
