Rihanna and book publisher Phaidon held a launch event at the prestigious Guggenheim museum in New York (October 11) to celebrate the singer’s new book. The coffee table book has been described as a visual autobiography by those who’ve seen it. Styled by Jahleel Weaver, Rih looked sultry on the evening in a Spring 2020 look.
The superstar rocked a look from Saint Laurent‘s Spring 2020 collection, which debuted on the runway just a few weeks ago. The mid-length leopard print dress is sleeveless with a cutout at the front while the knee-high snakeskin boots have a slouchy fit.
Rihanna’s jewelry for the evening included several pieces by David Webb. Let’s start with the earrings. She wore a pair of the Cosmos earrings from the “Manhattan Minimalism” collection. The black enamel, 18k gold and platinum earrings are set with brilliant-cut white diamonds.
On her right arm is a Strap cuff ($48,000), also from the “Manhattan Minimalism” collection. Just like the earrings it is black enamel, platinum and gold with brilliant-cut diamonds. The other black and diamond cuff on this arm is vintage from Camilla Dietz Bergeron.
On her right hand is one of Webb’s Tire rings, which is worth $27,000. Once again, this piece is black enamel with 18k yellow gold, platinum set with white diamonds.
Now let’s move on to the left arm. There you’ll spot a Bridle cuff ($42,000), which has similar features to the other pieces mentioned above.
Another Webb piece is this platinum and 18k yellow gold bracelet, which costs $48,000.
The last cuff is the X bracelet ($39,000) that once again features black enamel, platinum, yellow gold and white diamonds.
The last of Webb’s jewelry is a leopard ring ($32,000) featuring cabochon emeralds, collet-set brilliant-cut diamonds, black enamel, 18K gold, and platinum.
Rihanna sported a ring by Yvan Tufenkjian on her right hand. From the “Sandstone” collection, this gold and diamond ring’s curvy design was inspired by nature. Visit the designer’s website for store locations.
You can almost always find a piece by Chrome Hearts in Rih’s looks nowadays. She wore their Estrel-LA sunglasses that launched earlier this year. The tortoiseshell shades (pictured here in black) have rectangular frames, silver detail on the arms and smoky gradient lenses. Unfortunately, they are not available to purchase online at this time.
While leaving the event she carried one of the Dior‘s Lady Dior mini handbags ($3,500). The patent calfskin bag features the brand’s “Cannage” pattern and comes with a chain shoulder strap.
Update! Rihanna also wore an 18k black gold diamond heart ring ($3,076) by Shay. It consists of black diamonds set in black gold with a white diamond heart at the centre.
