Rihanna turned 28 on February 20th and that night she and her close friends partied at Via Alloro restaurant in Los Angeles. The star, who just earned her 14th number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, was photographed leaving the restaurant in a black fur coat by Pologeorgis and silver dress. The halter dress is vintage John Galliano and I discovered this thanks to the tag sticking out of the matching fringed scarf. Jahleel Weaver, who works with the singer, informed me that the dress is from jewellery designer Lynn Ban‘s archives. You can get a better look at the dress in the Instagram video below.She rocked the dress with a pair of Prada sandals. The silver sandals (pictured above in gold) don’t have the usual buckle fastening but instead the ankle strap is elasticated. Rihanna’s jewellery included a custom cross necklace and earrings by Jacquie Aiche that were made just for her! The cross pendant is made of pink opals cut in a diamond shape and set in yellow gold. The designer told me the hoop earrings are adorned with pink opals to match. You can purchase similar hoop earrings from Aiche’s site. Take a look at these tourmaline hoops. In some photos you can just see Aiche’s diamond halter bra peeking out. It was designed with street style stars Sama and Haya.

Rih’s bestie Melissa Forde posted this video showing the birthday girl enjoying herself. Rih gives us a great look at her dress but I noticed she was sporting a cute little bag and I just had to find it. Check it out below.
It’s actually a glasses case by Chanel. Released late last year, these cases are made of fine lambskin leather and feature the brand’s signature leather and chain shoulder strap and the interlocking Cs logo. Trust Rihanna to make a glasses case work for a night on the town. But it is the perfect size to hold your essentials. They retail for just over $1,500 so visit a Chanel boutique if you are interested in getting one for yourself.
