Micro trend: feathers

Rihanna's ‘Valerian' promotional tour wardrobe has been setting the red carpet alight for days now, but it was her recent appearance in a feathered Prada concoction that really got tongues wagging.

The pop star donned a candyfloss pink outfit for the Paris premiere of her new movie earlier this week, with the look comprising a bead-fringed bralette and tight pencil skirt adorned with layers of pink and red feathers. Being RiRi, she used her plumes to maximum advantage, shimmying and shaking all over social media and generally looking like she was having a ball. And as it turns out, feathers might just be the most fun micro trend of 2017. 

It started back in February at the Oscars, where nominee Octavia Spencer dazzled in a pearly grey Marchesa creation that featured a full feathered skirt. Sofia Boutella was no less resplendent in a sequinned Chanel dress that cut off mid-calf to reveal a plush downy hemline, and Halle Berry also channelled the look in fringed, gold Versace. The trend gathered traction for the MET Gala in May, with Blake Lively making waves with her peacock-esque Atelier Versace gown, and Julianne Moore opting for full plumage in a multicolored mini dress. And it showed no signs of slowing down by the time the Cannes Film Festival rolled around -- in fact, actress Araya Hargate took things to a new level when she teamed her Ralph & Russo gown with a full-length ostrich-feathered cape that trailed behind her.
