Last night Rihanna teamed up with the music streaming service Tidal that she co-owns for the first exclusive TidalxRihanna event. Eighty lucky fans in the Los Angeles area and specially-invited media were blindfolded and driven to a secret location where they watched Rihanna’s new music video for Bitch Better Have My Money. Have you seen it yet? If not, you probabaly should watch it right now. It’s one of her best.
Anyway, Rihanna was styled for the event by Jahleel Weaver, a freelance stylist who works as her assistant creative director. He styled her for Jimmy Kimmel Live and most recently for the 2015 BET Awards. Here’s what she wore last night.
The Barbadian entertainer wore a vintage Raf Simons Fall/Winter 2000 jacket from David Casavant‘s archive. The black bomber jacket has a zip front closure, patches on the chest and sleeve including one that says “The Hydesville Castle Community”, and the designer’s name is written in small letters one one sleeve. This is the second time Rih has pulled vintage Raf from Casavant’s archive. Earlier this year she wore a covetable camo jacket in New York. Click here to watch video of Simons’ Fall 2000 show.
Rih posted a Snapchat story from the event which gave us a great look at her dress. She rocked a black and white dress from Louise Alsop‘s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. This is her first time wearing the designer. The white mini dress features thin straps, a raw edge hem and several patches including a few that say “SS15”, “Louise Alsop”, “Born To Lose”. You can shop the look below. Her shoes are custom one-of-a-kind creepers by Mr Completely. The shoes were made using the upper from Puma‘s black and white Suede Classic sneakers and 1.5″ creeper soles. You can purchase the original sneakers below.
Finally, here’s a photo posted by jeweller Lynn Ban on Instagram. Although Rihanna’s jacket blocked most of her jewellery, she did wear some beautiful pieces by Ban including black and white diamond orbital hoop ear cuffs and pavé diamond circuit cuffs. These items are only available in store.
