Rihanna was spotted with her best friend Melissa Forde in Paris today:
Rihanna is in France in honor of her Diamonds World Tour. Just earlier she grabbed a bite to eat at L’Avenue restaurant (here). She has now been spotted once more in a change of attire. She’s taken off her daytime look from before to a darker toned look for the rest of her day.
Rihanna wore this lovely slim-fitting wool jumpsuit from Azzedine Alaïa’s Fall 2012 Collection. Rihanna’s a huge fan of this designer, trusting him to put together the custom look she wore to the Grammys this year (here). She also wore designs from Azzedine back in December of last year while in France ironically enough, (here).
Rihanna fittingly rounded off her look with Azzedine Alaïa’s Circle Detail Suede sandals. She debuted this piece while on set of a commercial in New York in May (here). These sandals feature an open toe with a half-sphere and silver stud front strap and ankle-strap detail with a silver zip back. You can get Rihanna’s exact pair at the link below, or purchase them in pink (here).
Rihanna accessorized with jewelry from Saint Laurent. She opted for two tassel necklaces with a luminous gold chain and one (pictured above) that features a logo engraved black onyx square pendant and a chain tassel drop detail, retailing at $1,898. Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent Spring 2013 debut features these beautiful necklaces in all their glory.
Rihanna’s longer Opium Tassel Necklace features a yellow gold-tone brass reinforced tubular snake chain necklace with a signature-engraved tassel pendant. It also features an Art Deco link clasp closure. You can get this necklace for $1,250 at the link below.

Rihanna carried a rather large clutch designed by Celine. This oversized natural python fold over clutch is from Phoebe Philo’s Winter 2012 Collection. Rihanna carried another clutch from this same collection (here), last month.
Rihanna’s BFF Melissa Forde, walked hand in hand with her as they took on Paris! Mel is also decked out in head to toe Azzedine Alaïa. She too wore a wool-blend jumpsuit. Melissa’s jumpsuit, however, is black and features long sleeves without the collar that is present on Rihanna’s.
Melissa finished her look with a pair of suede and shagreen high sandals. These sandals feature a zip fastening at the back and an 11cm high heel. The pair M$$ wore has a slightly higher platform than the ones pictured above. But, what’s neat is that these sandals are only available for a delivery in France! This is proof that Rihanna and Mel are making the most of their time in France. Check out Rihanna’s meeting with the designer himself on Instagram (here). Mel’s sandals retail at about $1,600!
