Yesterday was just another normal day for Rihanna as she whiled away the hours by chilling in fashion legend Coco Chanel‘s apartment in Paris. Casual.
The Diamonds singer took a trip to the late designer’s lavish Parisian pad after being gifted a jaw-droppingly amazing yellow Lego box clutch from Chanel bosses, fuelling rumours that RiRi may be collaborating with the iconic fashion house.
Tweeting: “Thank you to my dear friends at Chanel Paris!!!” alongside a snap of the bag, Rihanna was then taken on a private tour of Coco’s former home on Rue 31. And in true RiRi style, she documented the whole thing on Instagram. Oh, how we love you…
“Got the keys to #CoCoChanels apartment!!! Yesterday=Most Legendary day in Paris!!!!” the 25-year-old posted, along with a photo of keys hanging from the front door.
Completely decked out in the label, RiRi chose a white Chanel blazer, lace crop top and white mini skirt for the special occasion, finising off her cute ensemble with gold flatforms. Making herself right at home, the Bajan star then got busy posing in a selection of snaps around the posh property which was made famous by Coco’s own personal photographs.
“Replicating a #Coco moment”, she wrote for the photo of her lying on the chaise lounge that Chanel herself was once snapped on. She also had a mock fitting in the exact same spot Coco used to do her own, joking: “Checking my designs where #Coco checked hers!!! #imjustdifferent”.
Captioning a photo of her with Chanel’s accessories designer, Laetitia Crahay, Rihanna later posted her thanks for her epic day of fashion fun: “Me and the very lovely @laetitiacrahay You were so wonderful to us!! Thank you so much! Glad we got to hang out in Paris!! #CoCosCouch”, she tweeted.
Rumours of a possible RiRi-Chanel collaboration started earlier this year but were then denied by the brand in April. Still, we’ve got our fingers crossed this might just come true.
Get ready for the green-eyed monster – we’ve posted the pics below…
