You can’t go wrong if you are Rihanna! For everything she does, she can simply pique everyone’s curiosity and enthusiasm in no time. But, guess, this time everyone is not so ready for her next move that involved super skinny eyebrows.

On a more serious note, the ultra-skinny eyebrows style Rihanna just nailed for September cover of British Vogue somehow sparks familiar feelings for Mexican-American females that would refer this eyebrow look as part of ‘chola’ culture.

Chola itself is a term to describe Mexican-American female gangsters, whose style mostly indicated by thin and arched skinny eyebrows accompanied with sexy red lipstick. Once Rihanna’s photo came out, a Mexican-American writer, Krystyna Chávez gave her two cents through one of Marie Claire’s sections:

“I understand that skinny brows were not created or exclusively owned by the Latinx community: They also have roots in South African culture, in Roaring Twenties fashion, in the Harlem Renaissance community, and I’m sure they can be found in many other subsections of the world, too.

But to me and thousands of other Mexican and Mexican-American girls looking at these photos, RiRi’s brows look a lot like the chola brows our mothers feared we would one day wear—the brows that are now untouchable and unwearable to women like me, especially in conjunction with hoop earrings and, god forbid, lip liner.”

But Rihanna is Rihanna, she can turn the worst curse into the greatest blessing if she wants to, Chávez continues:
“To most Mexican and Mexican-American women, drawn-on eyebrows are a look historically representative of a marginalized culture—myculture—and have become a Latinx street style viewed as “trashy” by the rest of society. That is, until Rihanna wears them.”

Up until now, people around the world are still arguing over her dangerous eyebrows. And despite the cultural perspective in viewing Rihanna’s thin eyebrows, the social media are undecided on predicting if the thin eyebrows trend would make a major comeback. Whether you want to try this look is based on your style preferences, but remember that eyebrows have a major moment for they can shape your total look and your face shape is the greatest determinant. So, you choose!
