All weekend journalists in the know had been dropping hints that Rihanna would be making an appearance at Coachella, which set the Rihanna Navy on edge. She did show up on Day 2 to take in the Guns N’ Roses performance but who knew there was more to come. Last night Rihanna hit the stage during Calvin Harris’s set to perform their #1 hit single We Found Love. The song also happens to be Rihanna’s longest running chart-topper in the US.
Rihanna was styled by Jahleel Weaver who found a great balance between her natural tomboy style and Coachella’s sartorial vibe thanks to a sick jacket from Marc Jacobs‘ Spring/Summer 2016 collection [Look 25].
The Barbadian beauty’s version of the US flag-inspired fringed jacket varies quite a bit from the runway look. Both are embellished with silver stars and sequinned fringe. Rihanna’s version has the same fur-trimmed collar as the runway look but it’s shorter and features a zip front closure and striped blue sleeves. She also wore the white belt from Look 42.
Underneath she rocked a vintage Grateful Dead t-shirt from What Goes Around Comes Around. The tee dates back to the early 1980s hence why it’s super faded but I managed to find a photo of one in mint condition. It features several iconic Grateful Dead motifs including the legendary rock band’s red, white and blue skull with a lightning bolt through it and a skull wearing a crown of roses. Her hat is from Lucid FC‘s upcoming collaboration with Rotcho. The camo cap will be released in time for Fall 2016.
Rihanna sported Faith Connexion‘s ripped boyfriend jeans (€550). The loose-fitting jeans have rips above and below the denim patches on the thighs, five pocket styling and other signs of distressing. Her boots are from Balenciaga and they are made of suede and canvas. The camel-coloured lace-up shoes have a padded collar, stacked heel and rugged lug sole. Get them from Barneys for $1,145.
Rih wore a ton of jewellery, which is hard to see due to the picture quality, and thanks to Jahleel I can tell you who designed some of these pieces. She donned a chain necklace by Chrome Hearts, a watch, diamond necklace and rings from Jacob & Co along with rings by Lynn Ban and Roseark. The few pieces I did recognise are pictured below.
The pop superstar wore her beloved Chopard Happy Hearts bracelets. She’s been rocking a stack of five of these white gold and yellow gold bangles for a few weeks. Each Happy Hearts bracelet bears a coloured heart at one end and a smaller heart containing one of the brand’s signature moving diamonds at the other. In addition Rihanna wore a custom cameo ring by Jacquie Aiche and a yellow gold and white diamond My Dior bracelet from Christian Dior.
