Adam Selman talks about Rihanna

In a recent interview given to PopdustStyle.com, Adam Selman reveals himself & shares details about Rihanna’s style. How did he become his stylist? What are his inspirations? You will find out in this interview. Have a good read!
 

Where do the ideas for Rihanna’s costumes begin?
For the Loud tour I was super inspired by the photographer Cheyco Leidmann—all of those bright poppy colors he used in his work him and early David LaChapelle. Throughout the Loud tour, Debbie Harry also played a huge role.
 
And what about for The 777 Tour?
For 777 things had to be quick and transition from stage, to going out at night then to the plane. It was all about custom bras and that jet set lifestyle. It all kind of transitioned into this Debbie-Harry-meets-Tupac thing, like with the jersey other men’s pieces. A lot of menswear was involved.
 
How long have you worked with Rihanna and what has been your stamp on her look?
I’ve worked with Rihanna for the past year and a half. I made a pair of panties that Mel Ottenberg used in a fashion story in Purple Magazine. When he first became her stylist, he showed her the spread, and she went straight to the panties I had made. Mel poached me [from the Brittany Spears tour] to work on the LOUD tour and the panties ended up becoming a signature item. I was so flattered that the tiniest thing I have ever made had such a big impact.
 
It’s been great witnessing her style evolve as well.
Since then, we’ve evolved a lot together, Rihanna, Mel and I are constantly coming up with new ideas for a new look and new pieces to create. With Rihanna, I’ve been trying to keep things simple and clean and let her shine. She is such a presence that she doesn’t need to wear loud clothes or costumes right now, she really can throw on a rag and make it look glamorous. Mel is a huge supporter and we both have similar ideas of what “glamorous” is to us, so coming up with the exact style to compliment the clothing really has sealed the deal. We really make an amazing trio, both Rihanna and Mel give me an amazing platform to work with.
 
Since working with Riri, what’s been one of your biggest challenges?
That VMA dress was the quickest turnaround. Just insane! We decided on it at the last minute so I really just had a sample. I was literally sitting on the floor of the rehearsal space the night before, cutting and hand sewing it the night before.
