Rihanna unveils her River Island Collection
It’s hip, it’s trendy, it’s punky and it’s oh soooo Rihanna! The Diamonds singer made an appearance at the River Island store in London’s Oxford Street to launch her River Island collection and she came dressed to impress.
Her black floor-length gown was to die-for and it featured a thigh-high split and a cut-out back which the singer took advantage of by going heavy on the make-up and added the glam factor by donning mile-high heels and long sexy extensions to her half-shaved head. The look was sensational. She tweeted: “In London launching my #RihannaForRiverIsland collection tonight at Oxford Street! #phuckyoclothingline.” The singer met and greeted her fans graciously outside the venue and gushed compliments. “Britain has the most fashionable kids in the world. These kids inspired the high-end designers, they say what’s cool.” Speaking to Grazia mag, she added, “I designed every single piece in the collection so I could wear it. I think my fans trust my style so they’ll have fun with it.” Suffice it to say, it’s not for the faint of heart.
The after-party featured lots of stars including Will Smith who made a surprise showing, Lydia Bright, Cheska Hill and Little Mix’s Jade Thirwall just to name to a few. Rihanna looked trendy and cool in one of her designs and flashed some skin as she posed smiling at the cameras. Things are on the up and up for the Diamonds singer and she is branching out in more ways than one.
