Rihanna Hits Fashion Week- And Causes A Stir On The FROW

 

Rihanna’s fashion week wardrobe never fails to disappoint. She smashed it last season in everything from Prada to Dior, and now she’s returned to New York with, what you might call, a bit of a bang.

We caught our first glimpse of RiRi at Adam Selman’s show as she appeared on the catwalk with the designer to show her support. But since then, she’s taken her well deserved place on the FROWs of Alexander Wang and Altuzarra, and sent our style radar into overdrive.

What do you wear to check out your first show of NYFW? A midnight blue, iridescent raincoat, matching hat and red, mesh-detail heels of course! Hats off (sorry, we couldn’t resist) to Rihanna and her stylist Mel Ottenberg for this look- naturally the pop star was Wang-clad, and even touted a handbag from the SS15 range. We bow down.

As you’d expect, a quick change followed before hitting Altuzarra in a long-line blazer with tassel hem (by the designer himself, obvs) and a pair of black, high-waisted knickers. That’s a pretty brave style statement, but somehow the singer just managed to pull it off. We’re only 3 and a half days into fashion month, and already Rihanna’s keeping us on our toes by flouting all the rules and pioneering her own FROW-side looks. We just can’t wait to see what she does next…
