It's been three days since Rihanna announced her pregnancy, and the news is still reverberating through our collective consciousness.

Also burned into our minds: the outfit Rih wore in her pregnancy announcement photos, namely, those extra-long jeans dragging on New York City's germy sidewalk.

It was a style statement that harkened to the early 2000s, an era that is, for better or worse, taking over high fashion.

It also served as a reminder that Rihanna's penchant for eyebrow-raising 'fits is nothing new. For over a decade, the Bad Gal has been out here pulling off the craziest of fashion feats with glamour and grace.

In recent history, the star stepped out in a massive orange coat, worn with clash-y, camouflage print cargos and stilettos from Gucci and Balenciaga's "Hacker Project." On anyone but Rih, the ensemble would look confusing and disjointed (camo, safety orange, crystals, and Gucci monogram?).

And don't even get me started on her raccoon-striped hair, a monstrosity that would normally trigger flashbacks of my emo phase.

Elsewhere in Rihanna's sartorial hall of fame: her ability to walk — nay, float — over Subway grates while wearing high heels; that culture-shifting, entirely see-through dress she wore to the CFDA Awards; the poof-y Giambattista Valli gown she paired with sneakers.

We're not stopping there. Don't forget the absolutely giant Ella Boucht puffer Rih wore over Balenciaga's "You Fuck'n Asshole" shirt, or her Really Big Belt.

The crimson Saint Laurent stole that turned her into a giant heart emoji? Canon.

Digging back even further, the billionaire was able to make even the most cursed Y2K trends look good. Exhibit A: before Julia Fox's thong pants, there was Rihanna's tiny hoodie, low-rise jeans, and visible underwear.
