Rihanna Is Back!

Rihanna attended the launch-party of her collaboration with sportswear brand, Puma on Monday night to launch the Fenty x Puma the Creeper Phatty.

Rihanna has been papped wearing these shoes in the lead up to the launch, choosing to pair the sneakers with vintage Jean Paul Gaultier coats and jeans. Undoubtedly, the multi-talented singer and businesswoman has her unique mark on fashion and rightfully so.

The singer stole the show with her oversized, purple bird jacket and an outfit that was reminiscent of the early 2000s fashion scene amongst the punk and rapper community. Styled by, Jahleel Weaver, the multi-hyphenate wore the purple jacket with a checkered, tweed, red,Jacquard lining and a quilted leather finish over which the bird jacket laid. Rihanna choose to wore a white sport-jersey inspired slip with lace detailing below the jacket and excessively baggy JNCO-esque jeans popularized during the 90s. She accessorized the look by bringing back the “wallet string” chain except this was a string of diamanté hooked on to the loop of her jeans which collectively gave Green Day, Nickleback and Hot Topic a run for their money. She also wore a chunky necklace which coincided with the colours of the diamanté and stacked gold hoop earrings.

Rihanna’s makeup artist, Priscilla Ono gave her the signature Rihanna glow for her base, and an incredible purple smokey eye which I cannot help but see as a call back to the heavy purple shadows of the 00s, a la Britney Spears. She doubled down on the early noughties’ nostalgia with a dark lip liner and nude gloss. Rihanna’s hair was done by celebrity hair stylist, Yusuf who chose to put her hair in a preppy ponytail to match her top’s “Bring It On”, cheerleader vibes, with a curled swoop for her bangs in the front to frame her face.

The entire look was such a fun way to encapsulate the Y2K revival, especially as a celebrity who more or less defined the later years of the noughties. There is no one who could have pulled this look off other than her, once again proving there is no replacing the ultimate bad girl, RiRi.
