Rihanna is a style icon. And a music icon. And a beauty icon. And a, well, you get the idea. We were reminded of this—not that we needed reminding—when the “Work” singer stepped out in New York City recently wearing a mint green Prada bucket hat (which retails for $495), matching sunglasses, a Cramps band tee, and jeans.
The casual yet striking look caught the attention of paparazzi, and she was snapped repeatedly on a date night with boyfriend A$AP Rocky. The It couple arrived in a Rolls Royce Cullinan—the epitome of luxury—for their night out together.
Rihanna had another incredible style moment a few days ago, when she stepped out in a slip dress and statement accessories. She complemented the dress with long strands of pearls, a matching black bag and shoes, and a bright red lip.
The “Umbrella” singer spoke to The New York Times Magazine in 2019 about her then fashion brand Fenty. She discussed her own body and how that affects her fashion choices. “It just changed how I dress in terms of my proportions,” she said. “You wear what looks good on you, and that’s it.”
She continued, “I’m thick and curvy right now, and so if I can’t wear my own stuff then, I mean, that’s not gonna work, right? And my size is not the biggest size. It’s actually closer to the smallest size we have: We go up to a [U.S. size 14]. We’re saying we can meet you at any one drop that we put out.”
Fenty was discontinued, but Rihanna still co-owns the lingerie line, Savage X Fenty, and owns her skin-care and makeup line, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, along with luxury goods group LVMH. She truly is Queen Ri. I can’t wait to see what NYC style moment she has in store next.
