Rihanna, 35, and Natalie Portman, 42, fangirling over each other was definitely our favorite moment of the week.

On January 22, the fashion mogul and Hollywood actress attended a Dior Haute Couture show during Paris Fashion Week. Luckily, the two ladies crossed paths outside the fashion show and had the sweetest interaction, which was captured all on camera. 

In a video reposted by a fan page dedicated to the May December star on X (formerly Twitter), Rihanna can’t help but gush over Portman, who looks so fab in a chic black Dior blazer and beaded skirt. You can see the full video of their interaction here.

The “Umbrella” singer (rocking an all-black ‘fit as well) says to the actress, “You are one of the hottest b****** in Hollywood forever.” The mother of two adds, “You do the most innocent look and I’m like, ‘Ahhh!’” Based on her shocked facial expression, Portman seems so taken aback after hearing this from the Bad Gal RiRi herself. The Black Swan alum says, “I might faint [and] blackout.”

Eager to document this moment, Rihanna asks someone if they can take a pic of the two of them. Before parting ways, the “Love on the Brain” singer hugs Portman one more time and says she usually “doesn’t get excited” about meeting just anyone. “I love you,” Portman says after they embrace.

Rihanna, Portman and other high-profile celebs came dressed to the nines for this year’s Paris Fashion Week, including actress and singer Jennifer Lopez. This past Monday, the “On the Floor” singer attended the Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2024 Show for Paris Fashion Week. And she came dressed in one of her most unique looks yet: a show-stopping white coat and statement sunglasses.

Excuse us while we continue to gush over new BFFs Rihanna and Portman.
