Blame it on the braids? Fashion and beauty mogul as well as officially, the richest female musician, Rihanna, held the launch party to her FENTY pop-up in New York City on Tuesday night. Allegedly, the star was three hours late. The singer brought her maison stateside and housed it in the SoHo neighborhood.
Rihanna arrived looking like a Caribbean queen, sporting a bright pink slip dress and shoes. She gave us a bright pink lip and was looking real Bajan! Her earrings were cascading jewels. I love that she brought all this color to a rainy day in NYC. The shoes have the pointed shape, similar to her current collection and the dress is very summer, so I can’t help but wonder if she’s teasing what’s coming next. After all, she did do this back in January with the FENTY sunglasses.
She also sported some blue nails which look poppin’! I love that she keeps switching up the colors. At her last pop-up, she wore neon green nails.
The best part of her look was undoubtedly her new hairstyle. She was serving us Black girl fabulousness with some long, red box braids. Just in time for summer! I stan an affordable hairstyle.
The pop up also featured curvier mannequins, which is a great way to make a statement in support of body positivity in the wake of the Nike mannequins drama.
Selah Marley was there taking selfies with the RiRi.
If you are in the NYC area, you can shop the collection at The Webster.
The pop up runs from June 19th to June 30th at 577 Broadway NY, NY 10012.
Would you shop the collection? Would you want to see a permanent store or do you like the pop-up aspects?
