After a brief visit to London, Rihanna’s already back in New York.

She caught up with BFF Katy Perry, as the two were seen having dinner at upscale Chinese restaurant Philippe Chow on Friday night.

The first picture I saw of Rihanna was from the knees up, so I assumed she was wearing thigh-high boots, but the long shot shows she is actually wearing black jeans who’s bottom half is made of leather !?!?!?!?!?!

Rihanna usually favours Alexander Wang for her nights out, but on this occasion she opted a Balmain quilted leather jacket.

The runway version was velvet, but the leather jackets fits better with Rihanna’s edgy vibe.

What I love about this jacket is the silver chain detailing down the front, on neckline and on cuffs which are framed with tulle accents.

Shades at night and hot pink lipstick complete this look for RiRi.

Apart from the shades and the fact there’s too much black for my liking, this isn’t a bad look.
