Rihanna's new album Talk That Talk drops today and what better way to celebrate how far the Caribbean queen has come than by taking a walk down memory lane.

Rihanna's rocked almost as many hairstyles as R-Patz and she certainly takes the cake when it comes to having a chameleon-like style. Because really, how many other people could pull off a blonde and brunette faux-hawk and still look sexy?

Rihanna proved that she can go from edgy to fierce in just one hairstyle. This golden, bowl cut-like 'do and dramatic, green '80s jumpsuit was fitting considering her next album would be called Loud.
