Rihanna is one of our top celebrity inspirations when it comes to accessorising with some seriously fierce statement jewels, with the singer rarely seen without her signature bling.
And now we’ve got some ah-mazing news for RiRi’s faithful fashion followers, as it turns out it’s not quite as pricey as we’d thought to emulate the 26-year-old star’s killer arm candy.
In an interview with Vogue, the Diamonds singer made a surprising confession about her jewellery box (which we naturally assumed was only crammed full of Chanel and Cartier, dahling…)
‘My jewellery’s all fake – from Claire’s,’ Rihanna admitted. ‘Or I get it from my mom’s boutique in Barbados. Her shop’s called FAB-U-LUS.’
Say what?! Picturing RiRi rooting through the Claires Accessories bargain bin for a £2.99 name necklace is just too much to handle. We love.
The Bajan beauty also opened up about her often risqué yet oh-so-fabulous fashion choices, admitting that looking like a mega-glam style icon often comes at a painful price.
‘If I’m wearing a top, I don’t wear a bra’, she said. ‘If I’m wearing a bra, I just wear a bra.’
‘It’s not about pain. It’s about the commitment. I say to myself, “I want to look like this,” and worry about the pain later. I’ve had nights I had to tiptoe home and the balls of my feet wouldn’t even allow me to stand.’
Nice to know RiRi finds herself longing for a pair of Party Feet just like the rest of us.
