After Rihanna slayed the stage at Rock In Rio yesterday she and two of her best friends, Melissa and Sonita, posed for photos at the after-party and a few of those found their way to Instagram. Rih wore vintage Levi’s cut off shorts with a Kurt Cobain t-shirt. The short-sleeved, crewneck t-shirt is made of 100% cotton and is part of Nirvana‘s officially licensed merchandise. The tee features the late singer’s signature and a photo of him wearing a dress. The photo is from Cobain’s cover shoot with The Face magazine in 1993. He was unafraid of wearing dresses and just saw it as another part of his personality. Unfortunately, the tee seems to be sold out.
This is not the first time Rihanna has paid homage to the revered rock star. In 2011 she was spotted in London wearing a House of the Gods tee bearing one of his most iconic images and two years later she rocked a Maison Labiche tee honouring Cobain. Take a look at her tee and phone case below.If you’ve been wondering about the iPhone case Rihanna has been using for the past several weeks, you will be glad to know that it is custom-made by Hanna of Richesse NYC. She takes those fantastic Incipio covers and customises them with Swarovski crystals. Rih’s is covered in white and pink crystals and features the phrase “Bad Gal”.
