Fashion Credits: Rihanna “Work” Music Video

Rihanna just dropped the music video for her latest single Work, which features Drake. The teaser alone racked up millions of views in three days and it was just announced today that the single is Rihanna’s fourteenth number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The dancehall-infused track needed a vibrant video that reflects Caribbean culture and we definitely got that and more. She surprised us with two videos, both with very different styles. Here’s the rundown on what Rihanna wore.

Rihanna in Work music video wearing Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2016 rasta crochet dress, Giuseppe Zanotti gold strappy gladiator sandals, Creepyyeha pink Tall Tahliah chokerThe first video, which was shot by Director X, was filmed at The Real Jerk, a popular Jamaican restaurant in Toronto, and the styling certainly matched the vibe. Rihanna was styled by Anna Trevelyan and she wore some pieces from Tommy Hilfiger‘s Spring/Summer 2016 collection that was inspired by the Caribbean islands.

She rocked a crochet maxi dress with short sleeves and side slits [Look 30] in the rasta colours of ites (red), gold and green. The dress resembles what is known as a mesh marina/vest in the islands. She stuck with the runway look by wearing one of the crochet bikinis from the collection underneath the dress. Her swimsuit top exactly matches the one used in Look 42. During the video you can spot a garter belt around Rihanna’s waist that trails down her thighs. It was custom-made by Kerin Rose of A-Morir and it’s made of red and gold crystals. Kerin gave us a peek at the garter on Instagram.

Rihanna completed the look with a pair of gladiator sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti. The shoes are made of glossy gold leather and feature a slender stiletto heel, eight straps (five of these have a buckle fastening) and a back zip closure. You can purchase the shoes from Zappos for $1,295. Among her many accessories is some jewelry by Lynn Ban, Erickson Beamon and a choker by Creepyyeha. Yeha Leung, the brains behind the bondage-inspired line of accessories, was kind enough to share some photos of the unreleased choker. It’s the baby pink version of Creepyyeha‘s Tall Tahliah choker and it’s made of vinyl with gold hardware. Check out their online store to see the entire collection.

Rihanna Work music video Venomiss custom Barbados flag garter, Alexis Bittar crystal frogThe Barbados flag garter was custom-made just for the shoot by Venomiss. In this shot you can also spot a crystal encrusted frog ($275) by Alexis Bittar. Bittar is also behind those two large cherries dangling from a long gold chain that is attached to a cuff bracelet.

Rihanna wore a sheer vintage top with a customised vintage denim and suede skirt. The skirt was sourced from What Goes Around Comes Around. Her shoes are Maison Margiela‘s glitter-covered peep toe sandals. The silver-tone shoes feature a slingback strap and an ankle strap with a buckle fastening. They are available from Farfetch for $895. Her jewellery included a body chain by Jacquie Aiche, a custom “Fenty” ear cuff by Jennifer Fisher, and some pieces from D’Orazio PR’s clients.
