Extreme runway style never translates well into real life. But celebrities get a pass on this rule since stars like Rihanna can make the oddest trends lust-worthy like the Karl Lagerfeld gauntlet gloves the singer wore to the designer's namesake show at Paris Fashion Week.
I first fantasized about super sized gloves when I spotted them on the Proenza Schouler runway last year. I was hesitant to fully embrace the trend then, but now that Mr. Lagerfeld and Rihanna have both approved the look, I just may go for it!

Oh, and don't you just love how Karl made the look so "Karl" by chopping off the fingers? I'm sure Lindsay Lohan is dying to steal those things off of Rihanna right now.
