Céline | Chanel | The Row
Rihanna takes to Instagram to show off a few pieces she’s added into her closet:
Rihanna has uploaded a few photos on her Instagram of some great pieces she’s snagged. In the above photo she is wearing a look from stylist Nini Nguyen, who also styled Rihanna’s outfit at the launch of her Nude fragrance (here). Rihanna later had dinner with Nini. Here, she is wearing a cropped jacket, sunglasses and a pearl necklace (that we will discuss in greater detail in bit.), all from Chanel. She accompanied these pieces with shorts from The Row.
Her limited edition pearl sunglasses in particular, are from Chanel’s 2013 Eyewear Collection. You can purchase them for 400€ (approx. $520.48 US) at the link provided below. Along with these pieces, she rounded out her look with mint green Céline leather pumps that you can also see in greater detail below.
We anticipate she will be wearing much more from her own River Island Collection, showing off a box from her line with the caption, “Today’s mail includes….”. We’ve already spotted her in plenty from her collection already, to catch up on what she’s been wearing visit our posts (here).
Rihanna later uploaded a photo of herself from the waist down to reveal what she captioned as, “”My mint green Celine’s”. Rihanna is definitely no stranger to the Parisian fashion house Céline, designed by Phoebe Philo. Not only has she worn the line on several occasions, which you can refresh your memory on quite a few sitings (here), she’s most recently been spotted in Elle UK’s April 2013 editorial in Philo’s line (here). Today however, Rihanna sports a pair of leather pumps from Phoebe’s Autumn/Winter 2012 range.
I reviewed this collection in-depth back in February, and this particular pump stood out against the rest of the collection that featured loads of color-blocking in blue, orange, brown, and white hues along with Phoebe’s signature wedges. These Italian-made leather pointed toe pumps feature a 105mm heel. The pumps retail for about $550, but are unfortunately unavailable online. If you’re a New Yorker, or planning to visit as a tourist, you may be able to find a pair at Bergdorf Goodman’s store, as Céline is an in-store only brand carried there. You can find all contact information regarding personal shopping (here).
Finally, we have the ‘coup de grâce’, Rihanna uploaded one more photo onto her Instagram with a fragment of a well-known Coco Chanel quote and her own infamous hash tag, “I don’t think about you at all #cccertified”. Here, Rihanna reveals a beautiful giant pearl necklace from Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Spring 2013 Ready to Wear Collection. Rihanna has already shown off an embroidered clutch from Karl’s Chanel 2013 Cruise Collection earlier this month while with Chris Brown at Giorgio Baldi (here). The necklace she wore today, is but one of several different pearl necklaces and bracelets shown off on the runway of Karl’s collection.
The pearls from this collection have already been spotted on Australian model Miranda Kerr and Chanel ambassador, Leigh Lezark. Now, Rihanna adds her name to the list. ELLE.com displayed another similar pearl necklace from this collection priced at a steep $32,000 that you can review (here). She complimented these pearls with a red lip. Let us not forget that Rihanna’s signatire red lipstick “RiRi Woo” releases in exactly one month from today! Read up on her collaboration with MAC Cosmetics from our previous post (here).
