Rihanna stans on a budget should copy this Fenty look ASAP

Introducing “Runway to Real Life,” a new Yahoo Lifestyle series where we will be choosing a Spring/Summer 2018 runway look and teaching you how to re-create and wear the look today — through current shoppable fashion and beauty products that will deliver you the perfect, fresh-off-the-runway look at a fraction of the price. 

If you’ve been keeping up with Yahoo Lifestyle‘s “Runway to Real Life” series, you know that we’re showing you how to copy a look straight from the runway and wear it now. We’ve already shown you how to re-create a look from Kate Spade and Maki Oh. Our next and final look is from Rihanna‘s highly popular fashion line, Fenty x Puma.

Now in its fourth season, Rihanna’s strength in design continues to shine with her latest collection, which might very well be her best yet.

The Spring 2018 Fenty x Puma runway show was staged at the grand Park Avenue Armory, transforming it into an X Games-style space filled with mountains of pink sand where motocross daredevils leaped across the sand as the crowd watched in awe. Shortly after the stunt, models including Slick Woods, Mica Arganaraz, and Joan Smalls strutted across the room wearing high-contrast windbreakers, anoraks, biker shorts, scuba-made dresses, hoodies, and more, all made within a rich palette of neon pink to crimson red, sky blue and olive green. At the end, Rihanna fittingly rode on the back of a motocross bike for her finale “walk” around the whimsical mountains of pink sand. It was one of most buzzed-about nights during NYFW.

Runway: Model Mica Arganaraz wears a transparent sky blue hoodie over a Puma logo top and athletic shorts outlined with a lime green border. The look is elevated by pairing it with hot pink booties and sporty sunglasses.

Real Life: We styled fashion and beauty blogger Barbie Conga with a clear blue rain jacket from Hunter to achieve the same transparent hoodie effect as seen at Fenty x Puma. We picked up a similar statement logo hoodie from Unite to give it the same visual look from the collection. We then added a pair of navy biking shorts that you can easily grab at JCPenney or even Kohl’s, Target, or another nearby retailer. Finally, for the accessories we used a pair of sunglasses from Puma’s main eyewear line that you can snag for less than $200. We topped the look off with a pair of hot pink suede booties from Topshop.

You can easily take a style cue from Fenty x Puma without breaking the bank. You can shop our look below or use athletic apparel you already own from your closet. Add a bold colored pair of booties and sporty eyewear to transform the look into one you can wear straight from the gym to brunch or even dinner.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty collection made its runway debut, giving “multidimensional color unique to each girl and her skin tone.” Sephora PRO artist Karoline Karakeosian re-created the look by prepping skin with Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer and applying a thin layer of Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Next, she used the shade Sand from Sephora’s PRO Warm Palette across both eyelids. She followed by contouring cheekbones with Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio in Truffle . Then she layered Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule and blended with a cheek-hugging highlight brush. To complete the look, Karakeosian curled lashes before adding mascara and dressed lips in Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer.

Models flaunted natural, voluminous curls as they sauntered down the runway at Fenty x Puma SS18. When trying to mimic this look, Kérastase consulting hairstylist Matt Fugate advises starting with a deep-conditioning treatment to hydrate hair overnight or first thing in the morning to enhance curls. Make sure to allow enough time for product to fully penetrate. Next, he suggests avoiding “wet-look” gels and instead opting for a beautifying oil such as Kérastase Elixir Ultime Nourishing Hair Oil or Kérastase Aura Botanica Concentré Essentiel Hair Oil Blend to enhance shine and define curls.

Pro tip: To maintain your natural curl pattern, gently press oil into hair, mimicking a patty-cake motion. Then use hands to mold hair into shape.

    Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur waives right to preliminary hearing

    Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur was ordered Monday to stand trial on eight counts of first-degree murder after he waived his right to a preliminary hearing in a rare legal move. The 67-year-old self-employed landscaper, who is accused of killing eight men with ties to Toronto's gay village, shuffled to the prisoner's box in a packed Toronto courtroom, his head bowed and avoiding eye contact with the family members of his alleged victims. Looking significantly different from when he was arrested in January — having lost weight, shaved his goatee and cropped his hair short — McArthur said nothing while his lawyer, James Miglin, confirmed his client's agreement to skip the preliminary inquiry.

    Canadian immigration officials have determined that the United States remains a safe country for asylum seekers, despite the Trump administration's crackdown on what it terms illegal aliens. Documents obtained by The Canadian Press under access-to-information law show Canada was concerned about the changes in U.S. immigration policy and conducted a review of its Safe Third Country agreement with the U.S. from January to March of 2017.

    North Korea bought at least $640 million in luxury goods from China in 2017, South Korea lawmaker says

    The United States has urged strict implementation of sanctions as part of a "maximum pressure" campaign which Washington has credited with bringing impoverished North Korea to the negotiating table. "Kim has bought lavish items from China and other places like a seaplane for not only his own family, and also expensive musical instruments, high-quality TVs, sedans, liquor, watches and fur as gifts for the elites who prop up his regime," opposition lawmaker Yoon Sang-hyun said in a statement. "With the growing loophole, Kim would be able to near his goal of neutralizing sanctions soon without giving up the nuclear weapons." Last year, North Korea spent at least $640 million on luxury goods from China, according to Yoon.

    Voters across Ontario cast ballots Monday to elect their next municipal governments. The veteran politician secured a significant lead over his main challenger, former chief planner Jennifer Keesmaat. Patrick Brown, the former leader of Ontario's Progressive Conservatives, made a political comeback after snatching the mayoralty from incumbent Linda Jeffrey in this city northwest of Toronto. Brown was forced to give up the party reins in January amid allegations of sexual misconduct he denies, months before the Tories went on to win a majority under Ford.

    EU eyes Brexit customs deal to break Irish deadlock: sources

    Accounts of how British and EU negotiators came close to a deal on Oct. 13 focus on how Prime Minister Theresa May balked at an EU demand for a "backstop" clause. This could put Northern Ireland in a special relationship with the EU that might distance it from the British mainland to avoid putting up customs posts on Britain's only EU land border, with Ireland. EU diplomats briefed on the negotiations said a vital part of a complex package was to "anchor" a reference in the legally-binding withdrawal treaty to May's proposal to keep the whole of the United Kingdom in a customs partnership with the EU -- thus avoiding special treatment for Northern Ireland.

    New gallery exhibit sheds light on flu epidemic that killed 4,000 in Alberta

    One hundred years ago, a devastating flu swept into Alberta and killed more than 4,000 people. The Spanish flu confounded doctors with its lightning-fast progression, and the fact that it most affected adults aged 20 to 45. A new exhibit at the Borealis Gallery, "In Flew Enza: the Spanish Flu Comes to Alberta," sheds light on this bleak period of the province's history, and explores some of the repercussions.

    Stage set for showdown in New Brunswick's closely divided legislature

    The New Brunswick legislature opens Tuesday with the election of a Speaker and a throne speech, but the Tories say the Liberals' days are numbered. Premier Brian Gallant says his minority Liberal government has listened to the message sent by voters in last month's election and will present a throne speech that incorporates many of the opposition parties' campaign pledges. The Liberals won just 21 seats — one fewer than the Progressive Conservatives, while the Green and People's Alliance parties each won three.

After a while it became more difficult to leave solitary confinement than to go back in. "You become so removed from people that being around people almost becomes unbearable," said Annett, who was released from incarceration earlier this year.

The appearance of the flag, which was taken down after almost a full day, was met with outrage from some residents, but the man who helped raise it says it wasn't meant to hurt the LBGT community of Chipman, a village of some 1,100 people, about 60 kilometres east of Fredericton. "We are not against the gay pride people at all," Bishop said.

    Report casts doubt on value of protecting Chapter 19 in Cda-US trade talks

    A new report from a left-wing think tank says the dispute-resolution tool at the heart of Canada's year-long trade battle with the United States has a spotty track record of helping Canadian exporters. The report, to be released Tuesday by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, explores whether protecting Chapter 19, one of the most intractable issues during the NAFTA talks, was worth all the grief. It says out of 54 complaints filed against the U.S. since 1994, Canada obtained some form of relief in only 12 of them, with the majority being terminated before any finding was issued.

"We'll continue to finance our capital needs in the high-yield market," Hastings wrote in his second-quarter shareholder letter. The move was very well telegraphed by Netflix, said John McClain, portfolio manager at Diamond Hill Capital, which is long in the debt, adding the debt raise "makes sense to us." Netflix has said it plans to spend $8 billion on content this year.

Going home in his pickup truck, there was an "indelible impression left on my soul", a recognition of injustice and unfairness for children on the Mexican side. "Simply due to where I was born, a few miles north of this line, I was free to travel back and forth as I saw fit," she told an audience at the United Nations in Geneva on Monday.

Aptoide's lawyer Carlos Nestal said it was the first case of an EU national court enforcing separation of the Android operating system and services that run on it, to allow competitors like Aptoide to compete with Google apps.
