Rihanna Gets A Special Gift From Fashion Royalty

Rihanna must be beaming right now, because she’s just been given the ultimate nod by supermodel royalty.

British fashion icon Naomi Campbell paid tribute to her singer pal by modelling a t-shirt with RiRi’s face on it in a new snap, which shows the catwalk maestro working messy bed hair and one serious supermodel smoulder.

Rolling the sleeves of her Rihanna tee up for extra rock chick edge, Naomi shows off he flawless features with just a hint of rosy blush, shimmering brown eyeshadow and a natural glossy lip.

Naomi’s never been one to hand out the compliments, so this is one almighty accolade for RiRi. And even cuter, Naomi’s showing her support for Rihanna’s charity, The Clara Lionel Foundation. 

In 2012, the Bajan beauty launched Foundation following the death of her grandmother Clara Braithwaite and teamed up with the Hard Rock Cafe to design a limited edition t-shirt line – Naomi’s new Hard Rock Rihanna Spotlight tee being one of them.

‘This charity is very near and dear to my heart and I’m proud to announce Hard Rock’s donation of $200,000 to The Clara Lionel Foundation, as well as showcase my shirt and spotlight merchandise’, Rihanna said in a statement. 

RiRi’s been known to love a vintage tee in her time, and this one’s got her cool tomboy edge stamped all over it. 

Co-designer Kay said of the design: ‘My inspiration was Rihanna’s personality and a lot of vintage rock t-shirts and posters. I wanted something that suited her and was very heavy metal/rock looking.’

It’s no wonder Naomi’s supporting RiRi’s cause – the two beauties have often been seen hanging out on the fashion circuit.

As well as recently teaming up for that Balmain-clad shoot for W Magazine, we spied them having a giggle at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York and also bonding backstage at Versace’s SS15 NYFW show. 

We love this little showbiz girlmance!
