Rihanna Can’t Stop Carrying This Expensive Purse

It’s not every day that we splurge on a pricey accessory and—in turn—set ourselves back a few paychecks. But when we do, we invest wisely. It appears Rihanna is on the same page, considering the 31-year-old singer is getting her money’s worth out of this four-figure handbag.

Rihanna was recently spotted out in New York City with her new boyfriend, Hassan Jameel. The musician wore a floor-length satin gown and carried a miniature leather tote bag by Azzedine Alaïa, which retails for a cool $2,215.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen RiRi sport the black crocodile bag. She previously donned the purse at Gucci’s Soho store opening in May 2018 and again in July during a night out in London. She was even seen wearing a green version of the mini tote during a trip to Barbados.

While it’s rare to spot an accessory repeater in the wild Hollywood, we’re not surprised that Rihanna repeatedly reaches for her trusty Alaïa bag. Not only is the purse a wardrobe investment, but it also has a simple—yet chic—design that will never go out of style.

OK, so we’re not going to run out and get an Alaïa bag of our own (at least not yet). But Rihanna has proven that celebs are just like us, at least when it comes to carrying the same purse over and over and over again. (It was more than two grand, after all.)
