I don’t mean to sound repetitive, but damn, Rihanna has been killing it in the style department this summer. Aside from her many designer collaborations with brands like Dior, Puma, and Manolo Blahnik, the ANTI singer has managed to outshine just about every other A-list celeb with her distinctively on-point wardrobe. Her off-duty fashion game has never been better.
Over the course of 12 days, we tracked the price tags of seven of her most memorable looks, including a Chloé blouse worn with Dsquared2 sandals and an Adam Selman dress paired with a denim Gucci jacket.
To be clear, celebrities make a lot of money, which means Rih’s designer-filled wardrobe is neither shocking nor uncommon. It is, however, impressively risk-taking. She’s not leaving the house in just any old T-shirt and jeans. She’s going to restaurants in Los Angeles in a vibrant Dolce & Gabbana kimono dress and heading to Disney World in a Cinderella-style Rosie Assoulin blouse. Remember the time she wore that gaudy, lime green taffeta dress by Molly Goddard just to walk the streets of NYC last month?
Rihanna is the certified stunt queen we need this summer — and the final price tally of her wardrobe is accordingly eye-popping. See below for the breakdown of some of our favorite Riri looks since May 31st with shoppable links, and weep.
May 31 (daytime): $9,980
Rihanna is a big Adam Selman fan. The designer played a big role in some of her most notable looks in her “Bitch Better Have My Money” music video and her ANTI tour. The metallic gold Dior Diorama bag she’s holding isn’t even for sale yet, which isn’t surprising considering she’s been the luxury house’s brand ambassador since 2015. (Also, she sure knows how to pull off the bra chain trend that has taken over this summer.)
May 31 (evening): $7,920
In true #StuntQueen fashion, Rih gave us not one, but two looks on May 31st. She paired her off-the-runway Chloé blouse with Chloé shorts and some insane lace-up Dsquared2 sandals.
June 3: $3,650
This Faith Connexion dress she wore on vacation is already sold out, but the pink and red Gucci sandals worn with it are on sale. We can’t speak for the amazing jewelry she’s wearing — who knows how much that all costs...
June 5: $2,512
No one can pull off a macrame coverup, bikini bottoms (sans top), and lace-up heels quite like Rihanna — proving, once again, that she’s the greatest of all time at swimwear.
June 8: $2,027
If you’re going to go to Disney World to celebrate your little cousin’s birthday, you might as well look like a Disney princess while you’re there. This Rosie Assoulin dress could be a dead ringer for Cinderella’s.
Rosie Assoulin top, $2,027.
June 10: $2,577
A simple dinner with friends in Los Angeles called for fresh-off-the-runway kimono dress from Dolce & Gabbana.
Dolce & Gabbana kimono dress, $2,577.
June 11: $8,415
Beyoncé and Blue Ivy aren’t the only ones who can rock the infamous embroidered denim Gucci jacket. Rihanna wore hers over another Adam Selman dress while out and about in L.A. the other night. She even threw on the denim heels from her recent collaboration with Manolo Blahnik.
