Rihanna In Louis Vuitton – Louis Vuitton Spring 2019 Menswear Show

Rihanna was in Paris, France this afternoon (June 21) for the first Louis Vuitton menswear show under the creative direction of Virgil Abloh.

When I saw the singer in this white Louis Vuitton jumpsuit my thoughts were:

1. So close.

2. Too big…again.

3. Was she giving her Hospital Orderly Halloween costume a run-out before October?

4. Noooo. To the plastic bag. Which meant she had carry an explorer sling bag to protect her valuables.

Had this fit, this would’ve been a cool outfit, sans plastic bag.

Buccellati jewels and white shades completed her look.

Rihanna In Isabel Marant – Savage x Fenty London Pop-Up Shop

Rihanna, who was in London for the premiere of her new film, ‘Ocean’s 8, stepped out for her Savage x Fenty’s pop-up shop on Friday (June 15).

The Bajan beauty wore a black leather Isabel Marant Fall 2018 top and draped skirt paired with lace-up heels and white sunglasses.

It’s been a while since I got a looked super chic and cool vibe from Rihanna. Finally it feels like she embracing all that she is unapologetically and without fear.

If you having a case of deja vu, it might be two-fold because: Marion Cotillard wore the silver version of this look to the Madame Figaro dinner, and Rihanna also wore a leather look to her ‘Fenty’ by Rihanna makeup launch.

Rihanna In Poiret – ‘Ocean’s 8’ London Premiere

Rihanna descended upon London tonight (June 13) for the UK premiere of US box office smash hit ‘Ocean’s 8’, where she joined her cast mates Sarah Paulson, Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Cate Blanchett.

She was the golden girl for the night wearing a Poiret Fall 2018 gold metal-yarn draped dress, which suddenly made me hungry for some Ferrero Rocher.

I love how the design is as chic and refined as it is modern and relevant, despite the singer-turned-actress narrowly avoiding a wardrobe malfunction.

A Harry Kotlar diamond ring, a gold Christian Louboutin ‘Vanite’ Clutch and gold Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Harmony’ sandals rounded out her look.

I have been somewhat frustrated with Rihanna’s style over the last 12 months, but it was good to see her bring back a cutting edge to her style.

Rihanna In Matthew Adams Dolan – Stance For Clara Lionel

While I wasn’t blown away by Rihanna’s look at the ‘Ocean’s 8’ world premiere, I was starting to see light at the end of the tunnel, but her appearance at Stance for the Clara Lionel Foundation on Wednesday (June 6) in New York City had me questioning everything.

Matthew Adams Dolan is a very talented emerging designer. And if you check out his last two collections, you will see that oversized silhouettes sit firmly in his wheelhouse.

What I still don’t understand is Rihanna’s reliance on this oversized look for the past 12 months which started at Cannes.

I don’t hate the look as I love the colour, the attitude and the styling – which included a Stalvey bag, Chopard jewels and Manolo Blanhik heels – but I kinda wish she would play another note on that banjo.

Rihanna In Givenchy – ‘Ocean’s 8’ World Premiere

With her notable absence from the first major photocall, Rihanna finally jumped on the ‘Ocean’s 8’ promo tour for the world premiere in New York City last night (June 5).

The singer wore a Givenchy Fall 2018 lame pleated dress edged at the neckline with tiered swirls of ruffles at hem.

For some reason this cast me back to the Stella McCartney Spring 2010 collection, but this look was decidedly more glam.

Do I love this?

In some small way.

I was expecting to be holding onto my wig in preparation to be blown away. Unfortunately I wasn’t.

If you are wondering why the singer is glowing, she’s no doubt wearing her Fenty Beauty Body Lava Body Luminizer.

Le Vian rings and strappy sandals completed her look.
