Rihanna Says Blow Me In Shaun Samson

She partied at the VIP Room in a bustier worn as a top and a boxer worn as shorts. Recently we’ve seen her in lingerie gowns worn as dresses but last night’s look was decidedly tomboy-ish. Rih toughened up her look with a hooded denim jacket from her previous collaboration with River Island. The limited edition Rihanna for River Island jacket was designed to mimic the layered look of a black hoodie underneath a dark wash snap button jean jacket.

Her shorts are actually Shaun Samson‘s Blow Me boxer. Girls have always borrowed boxers from the boys but few are as bold as Rihanna to rock them as shorts. The white boxer has a black waistband printed with the designer’s name and the text “#BLOW ME”. Her shoes are her best-loved Manolo Blahnik Chaos black patent, ankle-strap sandals.

She layered two necklaces last night – an estate diamond necklace from Kentshire and a MALA by Patty Rodriguez Where you from? necklace that says ‘Bridgetown’ – with a body chain. Her body chain was designed by Jacquie Aiche and comprises a gold chain accented with white diamonds.

Rihanna Gives First Look At Trapstar Monster Tour Merch

Posted by Sheena // July 30, 2014

Rihanna wearing Pigalle snapback cap, Trapstar for the Monster Tour longsleeved t-shirt, Air Jordan 1 sneakers, Louis Vuitton Alma BB handbag, Stella McCartney Beckett backpack, Lynn Ban coil ringRihanna is now in New York after spending some time in Detroit for Monster Tour rehearsals with Eminem. The singer was photographed at JFK airport in a black and white Pigalle snapback cap from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection and a tee from the tour’s merchandise. She announced yesterday via Twitter that the official Monster Tour merchandise was designed by British streetwear brand Trapstar. Rih has been a big fan of Trapstar for many years, opting for their ready-to-wear line of caps, sweatshirts and t-shirts as well as bespoke leather jackets.

Rihanna in Trapstar Monster Tour full moon longsleeved t-shirtThe brand has grown tremendously in the years since this blog was created, recently partnering with Harvey Nichols on an exclusive collection and launching a flagship store. This particular collaboration with Rihanna makes a lot of sense and fans should be quite happy. This tee provides a first look at the collab and it features a graphic of a full moon with pointed ears, red eyes, full lips and fangs wearing a blue mask and a gold grill in the shape of an AK-47 rifle. The word Monster is printed down both sleeves and all six tour dates are printed on the back. It’ll be interesting to see what else they’ve created for the tour.

Now let’s get into the rest of Rihanna’s outfit. She paired the t-shirt with simple black jeans and her favourite Varsity Red and black Air Jordan 1 Retro sneakers. Rih carried not one but two bags last night – a black faux-leather Beckett backpack by Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton‘s Alma BB mini bag in the Damier Ebène canvas. Her jewellery included an estate diamond necklace from Kentshire, a MALA by Patty Rodriguez Where you from? necklace that says ‘Bridgetown’ and a diamond coil ring by Lynn Ban.

You can revisit that post here. In this week’s edition of The Look for Less, I give you some options for recreating this look on a budget including pieces from H&M and Levi’s.

Black v-neck jumpsuits by H&M and ASOSFirst up is a v-neck jumpsuit from H&M with thin straps that crisscross in the back. The seamed waist gives you a bit more shape than Rih’s jumpsuit. ASOS also has a stunning wide-leg, draped halter jumpsuit for just $57.16 and the best thing about it – there’s a version for the curvy girls.

Shop:

  1. H&M black v-neck jumpsuit ($50)
  2. ASOS wide leg jumpsuit ($57) – also available at ASOS Curve

Denim jackets by H&M and Levi'sStyle it just like Rihanna with a denim jacket. A denim jacket is an absolute must-have for every closet. Choose a simple style in a classic wash so that you can wear it season after season, year after year. It goes with almost everything!

Shop:

  1. H&M stretch denim jacket ($30)
  2. Levi’s authentic trucket jacket ($40-$44)
  3. Old Navy plus-size denim jacket ($45)
