27-year-old Rihanna seemed to be channelling the late diva on Saturday when she posted a close-up selfie to Instagram. With a curly red wig and makeup that would have looked right at home on Whitney, Rihanna's tribute was gorgeous.

There was a chance, of course, that the similarities between the FourFiveSeconds singer and Whitney were coincidental. Since there was no caption on the Instagram photo, Rihanna's exact intentions with the look remained unknown. In the picture, big curls tumbled in a bob around Rihanna's face, which was made up with vivid lipstick and black mascara.

Large gold hoop earrings and narrow straps over her shoulders and around her neck made for even more of a late-1980s and early-1990s feel. For comparisons to Whitney - who died suddenly in February 2012 at the age of 48 - one can find similar looks in photos from the time around 1990, when the I Will Always Love You superstar was at the height of her impressive career.

If Rihanna were paying tribute to Whitney, it would be a good choice - the late singer won more awards (including six Grammys and two Emmys) during her life than any other female artist.
