She certainly knows how to court attention when it comes to her outfit choices.

So when it came to choosing an ensemble to celebrate her brother's birthday in New York, Rihanna decided to go out by accessorising her white minidress and sky-high black heels with a pair of leather stockings.

The stockings went over the heel of Rihanna's shoes, and up to her thigh - highlighting her slim legs in the process.

Rihanna finished off her look with huge gold hoop earrings and necklaces, covering up in a quilted navy jacket in the chilly Manhattan temperatures.

The 25-year-old singer wore her raven hair slicked down, and added berry red lipstick to finish off her look.

Her hair was similar to the 'doobie wrap' look Rihanna sported to the recent American Music Awards - although she decided to leave the studded bobby pins at home for the evening out.

Addressing the backlash over the hairstyle, Rihanna's stylist Ursula Stephen told Elle.com: 'It was actually Rihanna's idea. She had her mind made up!

'Honestly, I was a little hesitant but I knew she could pull it off, so I was all for it.'

Rihanna's outing came after it was revealed that singer has donated over $100,000 (£61,000) to help the Philippine victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

In a statement, Rihanna said: 'Emergencies make headlines, but the recovery continues long after the news cameras leave. Having been a fan and supporter of UNICEF's work over the years, I am honored to join them in helping children who have been impacted by Typhoon Haiyan.

'More than five million kids in the Philippines need our help. UNICEF is there for them today, and for the long road ahead, and so am I.'

Rihanna is the latest celebrity to pledge her support for victims of the storm, which claimed the lives of more than 5,200 people and left thousands more homeless and without food or drink, with David and Victoria Beckham recently donating clothing to raise money for the appeal.

If you want to help the Philippines, go help them. Singing and dancing for an hour is good but if i did that those kids would shoot me.

This young woman just cannot dress without adding something as tacky as possible on and the cheaper it looks, the better, then again, she's savvy, she knows what sells.

She's smart the way she promotes her clothing line. Her catwalk is the streets. Her fashion protographers are the paparazzi. Her audience doesn't have to sit in the front row for best view. Win win.
