On Friday night, Rihanna showed off her famous maternity style on her way to Cipriani Soho, where billionaire Alexandre Arnault was celebrating his 31st birthday. The Fenty founder was accompanied by boyfriend A$AP Rocky, with whom she shares her son, her first child. Rihanna was wearing a fuzzy crop top with a mock turtleneck in grey, a brown leather wraparound skirt with a piece of the same material attached asymmetrically at the hem, and a dramatic oversized fur coat in white and brown on top.
The outfit framed her current baby bump, showing off the pregnancy she first revealed at this year’s Super Bowl Halftime show. She had her hair up on top her head, and accessorized with large white sunglasses, silver drop earrings, and a pair of black and white sandals that laced up her calves.
Rocky was dressed a bit more casually in a black leather bomber jacket, white button down shirt, and grey cargo shorts with black sunglasses, and black ankle-high boots.
Alexandre Arnault is the son of Bernard Arnault, and their family owns a number of brands known for their luxury goods, including Moet & Chandon champagne, Hennessy cognac, as well as fashion houses Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, and Fendi. Their company LVMH also controls Tiffany & Co and Bulgari. The Arnaults backed Fenty’s beginnings in 2019, and they have connections to celebrities everywhere.
Also at the event was Kim Kardashian, who arrived in a skin-tight sleeveless black dress with a halter-style top. She had her hair slicked back from her face and was also wearing strappy black heels with lace up cording, and a small matching black purse.
She had a smokey dark eye, and was wearing chandelier earrings and a silver choker over the material of her outfits mock turtleneck. She appeared to be attending solo.
