Rihanna Trades Her Colorful Carries for Black Bags While Galavanting Around New York

She's an icon, she's a legend...

If I had to say one thing about Rihanna and only one thing, I would struggle between complimenting her musical talents or complimenting her style. When it comes to Rihanna’s looks, they never miss. Whether she’s up on stage performing in front of millions, heading out for a date night, or simply running around doing whatever mega stars do, Rihanna’s outfits continuously…slay (as the kids say).

Rihanna is known amongst the fashion crowd for many things. For starters, her impressive collection of vintage clothing and bags (including plenty of Tom Ford-era Gucci) could be discussed for days on end. Then, her red carpet looks, particularly her Met Gala looks, leave the fashion world in awe. We also cannot forget her iconic maternity style.

Unfortunately, while this year we were not blessed by RiRi’s presence on the Met steps (Rihanna reportedly skipped at the last minute due to the flu), our queen did bless us last week with two looks that deserve dissecting. Let’s discuss it!

Gucci Girl

Where do we even begin?

Let’s start with the incredibly cool two-piece look, which includes a vintage Comme des Garcons top, a skirt from Caymanian-Jamaican designer Jawara Alleyne, Amina Muaddi heels, and Chanel sunglasses. Wow, just wow.

As for the bag, RiRi opted for Gucci’s Horsebit Chain Shoulder bag, which is not all that shocking of a pick for her. She has one of the most impressive collections of Tom Ford-era Gucci bags, and this bag is an archival revival from the Tom Ford Days.

Lady in Dior

While she often opts for fun fits and colorful carries, while out and about in New York last week, she opted for head-to-toe black. She paired a vintage Dior sheer ruched skirt with a soft leather jacket by Magda Butrym and Jimmy Choo heels. The final finishing piece was her matte black Lady Dior.

Which look is your favorite?

I love her all-black look, though the COMME des GARÇONS piece is a nice touch.
