Rihanna in Chanel Spring/Summer 2013 pearl necklaceWhen Chanel debuted its Spring/Summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection fashion lovers everywhere obsessed over the so-called hula hoop bag. Some hated it, some loved it (personally I loved it). Karl definitely knows how to keep us interested!

While everyone debated the practicality of a hula hoop bag I was totally transfixed by the necklaces in the collection. Chunky pearls in varying sizes adorning chains so short you might as well call them chokers. So I was beyond ecstatic to see Rihanna rocking one of them in a new Instagram post. Then I noticed her new reddish hair (auburn maybe?). She looks totally chic with the classic red lip and simple black Chanel sunglasses.

Chanel has always been high on Rih’s list of favourite brands and I can’t wait to see what she has to show us next. Are you loving this look?
