She may not have made an appearance at this year's Met Gala (*sob*), but Rihanna is officially poised to take over, well, everything. With beauty, lingerie and gard
According to an official announcement from LVMH—following plenty of speculation—Bad Gal RiRi will be presenting her first major fashion collection in Paris, later this month. The range will include ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories and jewelry, per the report. Naturally, the line will also be called Fenty.
“Designing a line like this with LVMH is an incredibly special moment for us,” Rihanna said in the statement. She also noted that LVMH chairman and chief executive Bernard Arnault had given her “no artistic limits” when designing the luxury line.
And as exciting as it is that Rihanna is getting into luxury fashion, the moment has even bigger implications than it seems. For starters, Fenty will be the first fashion brand launched from scratch by LVMH since the haute couture maison of Christian Lacroix was founded in 1987. That's huge. Even more, this makes Rihanna the first-ever black woman to design for LVMH. Let that sink in.
