Rihanna was spotted out and about in New York on August 4th 2009:

Rihanna has always had love for New York as a second home. In today’s installment of Vintage RiRi, we will discuss one of her many New York looks in 2009. She was spotted out and about in Soho. Before we get into that, if you missed last week’s Vintage RiRi, feel free to visit our post (here). There you will get an extensive look back at Rihanna’s 777 Tour Costumes.


Rihanna began her look on this occasion, with sunglasses from Christian Dior. These vintage frames are from Christian Dior’s “Monsieur” Collection. She was also spotted wearing these at Derek Lam’s boutique opening this same year, we covered (here). These frames were super rare and highly sought after, with their textured gold arm detailing.

Rihanna then wore a dress designed by Parker. This $187.00 Floral Cami Dress is 100% silk and features a very polished yet wearable design with a racer-back. It also offers a drawstring ruffle at its scoop neck along with a smocked elastic waistband and spaghetti straps.

Rihanna completed her look with her Miu Miu Peep Toe Lace Up Boots. We have also featured another 09′ look from Rihanna in these same boots (here). Rihanna has continued to wear Miu Miu’s pieces down to this day. Check out everything she’s worn from them this year (here).

Rihanna accessorized with an $895.00 Alexander Wang Jess Small Shopper Handbag. This leather tote is functionally designed with Alexander Wang’s deconstructed sensibility. It features slash detail throughout, double handles, and a lined interior.
