Diamonds World Tour
Rihanna tours around the globe in honor of her Diamonds World Tour: (Updated 10.29.13)
Rihanna brought the first concert of her highly-anticipated “Diamonds” World Tour to the city of Buffalo, NY on March 8th. Throughout this year, Rihanna has been touring across not only this country, but several others, performing sold out show after sold out show. In this post, we will be keeping you updated on each and every outfit she wears during this tour.
During the month of July, Rihanna performed at quite a few festivals as part of her Diamonds World Tour. Click around below to get the details on each new look at those events:
Adam Selman | Manolo Blahnik
Rihanna performed in Puerto Rico on October 29th. For this particular show, she wore more custom designs from the talented, Adam Selman. What’s so unique about this new look, is that it’s actually a darker take on one of the previous looks from the tour! If you scroll down through this post you’ll be able to revisit her initial leather and mesh costume for Act II that was red, yellow and white. This all-black leather and mesh spin on the look definitely compliments her gothic fashion choices as of late. Rihanna completed her outfit with black booties from Manolo Blahnik.
Jeremy Scott | Adidas Originals | Raf Simons | Lynn Ban
Rihanna performed in the Dominican Republic on Saturday, October 26th. For this show Rihanna again wore pieces from renowned designer, Jeremy Scott, for his Spring/Summer 2014 Collection with Adidas Originals. Rihanna performed in South Africa on the 16th wearing an animal print look from his Spring 2014 Collection. On this occasion, she opted for a floral jersey with matching shorts that featured the number “32” in animal print along with detailing along the sides of the shorts featuring this same print. Jeremy himself was spotted wearing this same jersey along side Paris and Nicole Hilton in September of this year.
In addition to her jersey and shorts, Rihanna wore a bomber jacket during the opening of the show that featured the same print from Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. She again wore the Raf Simons Leather Velcro High Top Sneakers she wore on the 16th in South Africa. Lynn Ban cross chain bracelets and coil rings completed her look. Scroll down below to take a look at them.
Kokon To Zai | Adam Selman | Manolo Blahnik | Lynn Ban
Rihanna performed in Tel Aviv on October 22nd as part of her tour. During this performance, her stylist Mel Ottenberg went for pieces from Kokon to Zai once more! Rihanna wore their Spring/Summer 2014 Womenswear Spiked headband with metal beads along with a very statement making skirt that features pleats and a apron.

However, she wore one during her show in Tel Aviv we haven’t discussed, this Black Rhodium Alien Skull Ring. During her performance in South Africa she sported a very similar skull ring, the difference being that it was made of Black Diamond. Scroll down below to see that one.
Kokon To Zai | Wolford | Comme des Garçons | Versace | Lynn Ban
Rihanna brought her tour to Abu Dhabi on October 19th. Rihanna put on a stunning show a few years ago in this same area on New Years’ Eve.

For this concert, Rihanna wore an all white ensemble that covered her from head to toe in a turban with a long veil, an oversized bomber jacket, and top featuring the “yin and yang” symbol along with jogging pants (complete with an apron) from Kokon to Zai.

On October 16th, Rihanna performed for the second time in South Africa. This time however, she performed in Cape Town, whereas on the 13th she performed in Johannesburg. Rihanna and her stylist, Mel Ottenberg went with another favorite for this show — Jeremy Scott. Jeremy loves to work with fantastically bold prints and patterns when it comes to his collections and for Spring 2014 — there was no exception! Rihanna pulled from the animal print pieces from this collection, that included a pair of washed silk jumpshorts and the MA1 bomber jacket you see pictured above from the runway show.
Rihanna also wore the necklace you see pictured above. This beautiful Custom Jet Cross Necklace is from Lynn Ban — the photo of which was exclusively provided for Rihanna Overdose! In addition, Rihanna again wore her assortment of Lynn Ban bracelets and rings, that you can take a look at below, since she wore them previously during this tour.
Rihanna finished this look with a pair of sneakers from Raf Simons. These $610.00 Black High-Top Leather Sneakers feature a round toe, velcro closures and Raf’s logo stamp at the upper velcro strap.

This time, she pulls from KTZ’s Spring 2014 Women’s Collection, sporting a spiked hat, bomber jacket and matching trousers! Check out more from their runway show below.
In this photo, uploaded by Rihanna on her Instagram account from the concert, she wore an oversized bomber jacket that was also featured on KTZ’s Spring 2014 Runway. In the photo from the runway show on the right you can take a look at not only the jacket, but the visor she wore throughout the show as well. During this performance she wore Manolo Blahnik Shoes.
As with all of her tour outfits, Rihanna complimented her look with lots of pieces from Lynn Ban. The first of which, is this Custom-Made Silver Cross Choker. This piece goes right along with the gothic style she has been rocking as of late.
Next up, we have Rihanna’s earrings. She wore Lynn Ban’s Diamond Cross Stud Earrings. If you scroll down further, you can take a look at another pair of studs she wore from Lynn during a previous performance.

Lastly, here are Rihanna’s rings. Rihanna and her stylist, Mel Ottenberg opted for Lynn Ban’s Black Diamond Skull Ring, a Black Diamond Cross Ring, and her Black Diamond and Black Rhodium Coil Rings.
Raf Simons | Comme des Garçons | Lynn Ban
On September 22nd, Rihanna performed at the 2013 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix. For this performance, Rihanna began her look with the Vintage Depuis 1924 sunglasses she wore during her last performance, designed by Jean Paul Gaultier. Rihanna then opted for a complete look from a designer she has worn already during this tour, Raf Simons. If you read on below, you will see Rihanna in his custom “Sea of Desire” print. This time, she went with a look straight from the runway of his Spring 2014 Menswear Collection!
For this collection, Raf Simons offered a number of multicolored cotton shirts or long sleeveless tops featuring various graphic elements. As you see pictured above, Rihanna also wore a sleeveless button down top during parts of her performance from this same collection. Some of the artwork resembled a consumer product label and included the name Super Nylon. Another long shirt, in a green lattice pattern, had a black panel across the chest; on the panel were the words: Clusters, Artificially Flavored and, Super Nylon. Still other shirts had a printed panel containing standard manufacturing ingredients such as corn syrup, emulsifiers and other random images like champion divers and exaggerated teardrops. Check out the entire collection below.
On stage, Rihanna performed in a number of pieces from Lynn Ban that we have EXCLUSIVE details on. Some of these she has worn before. Here above, we have two of Rihanna’s bracelets. She wore Lynn’s Archive Gold and Diamond Bracelet along with her Archive Ruby and Gold Bracelet.
Next, we have a few familiar pieces. Pictured on the left, is Lynn Ban’s Gold, Diamond and Sapphire Bracelet. Rihanna spotted wearing this bracelet while greeting fans (here) on the 19th. On the right, is Rihanna’s Black Gold Cross Chain Bracelet. Rihanna has worn this piece on quite a few occasions. It was custom-made for her, so it is one of a kind.
Lastly, we will discuss her rings. She again wore her Gold and Tourmaline Cabochon Ring and her 18K Gold & Diamond Crystal Ball Ring from Lynn Ban that she wore during her performance in Manila below. In addition, she added a new piece — Lynn’s Gold, Diamond and Topaz Ring from her archives.

Asger Juel Larsen | Comme des Garçons | Lynn Ban
During her Manila performance Rihanna wore a complete look from Asger Juel Larsen. This look consists of a neoprene headband, jacket, bodysuit and shorts. The bodysuit has a few cut out panels in the back that really gave her look a feminine edge.
Asger’s runway show for their Spring/Summer 2014 Collection moved seamlessly from the oversized white ensembles to mixed patterns and clashing textures to the super androgynous, athletic-inspired designs that are having a major moment in fashion as of late. Adding the touch of the brightly colored flannel brings the show into a street-grunge, urban vibe. With the oversized jackets, neoprene hoods and chic boxing shorts, this collection appeals to a wide variety of consumers.
In addition to her white ensemble, we can’t forget about accessories. During her performance, Rihanna sported this pair of vintage sunglasses. Thanks to Depuis 1924, we are able to reveal an EXCLUSIVE look at these Jean Paul Gaultier 56-5203 Sunglasses!
Rihanna completed her look with what seems to be more from Comme des Garçons. If you scroll down below you can see a pair she performed in that were black while touring in China. For this performance, she seems to have wore a $700 pair of these Comme des Garçons Platform High Tops in White. This smooth leather high top sneaker is detailed with silver-tone eyelets, a self pull tab at ankle and tonal micro rubber platform.
By way of jewelry. Rihanna’s stylist Mel Ottenberg, called upon his favorites: Lynn Ban. For this performance, Rihanna wore this beautifully set Gold Chain Choker from Lynn.
Next, let’s take a look at a few of her rings. On the left, Rihanna wore a piece from Lynn Ban’s Archive. This is a Gold and Tourmaline Cabochon Ring. Pictured on the right, Rihanna wore Lynn’s 18K Gold & Diamond Crystal Ball Ring.
Kokon to Zai | Atsuko Kudo | Comme des Garçons | Lynn Ban

Juun J | Lynn Ban | Balenciaga
On September 13th 2013, after a small break from her tour, Rihanna set the stage ablaze in Macau, China performing all of her smash hits. During this show of her tour she debuted a new outfit! Here’s a look at what she wore!
This look is from Juun J’s Spring 2014 Collection. Juun J unveiled his Spring/Summer 2014 collection during Paris Fashion Week, featuring oversized football jerseys, photo printed graphic tees and high waisted shorts. Rihanna took the stage in the look pictured on the left. A similar look in plain white is featured on the right. Check out his complete collection at the link below!
Rihanna also wore two different types of shoes during her performance. One of which were these sneakers from Balenciaga. These $635 Marbled Multimatieres High Tops are detailed with an allover marble-effect and a smooth leather overlay at the toe. The colorway Rihanna wore them in is Blanc White/Gris Grey/Noir Black. Of course, during this performance jewelry was definitely NOT in short supply. We have the EXCLUSIVE look at each of the pieces Rihanna wore from Lynn Ban.
On her wrist, Rihanna wore a fair amount of bracelets from Lynn Ban. One of which, that stood out the most for me, is her cross bracelet. This Large Brushed Silver Cross Bracelet is super sturdy and worked well for Rihanna’s show in that she could move freely without it falling off or being overly heavy. She also wore two Silver Chain Bracelets.
These Silver Chain Bracelets were custom-made for this tour! Rihanna’s stylist, Mel Ottenberg, asked Lynn Ban to hollow the insides of these pieces, as the cross chain bracelets become too heavy for her to perform in when she piles them on.
Rihanna of course, had on lots of rings from Lynn Ban as well! On the same hand as her bracelets, she wore Lynn’s White Diamond Armoured Ring along with her Silver & White Diamond Coil Rings.
Finally, we have Rihanna’s earrings. Of course, you don’t have to look far, because these are also from Lynn Ban. She wore Lynn’s Triangular Stud Earrings.

Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy
Riccardo Tisci (Creative Director for Givenchy) designed an embroidered parka, white leather bra, sheer long-sleeved shirt, gold necklace, and silk satin mini shorts (pictured above) for Rihanna. According to VOGUE UK, his designs for Rihanna give a hint of the “strong sensual iconography” seen at the Givenchy Menswear Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection. In his interview with style.com, Mel praises the amount of work put into this look from Tisci. He says, “Riccardo blew it out of the park. Givenchy went above and beyond with the level of customization, and dealing with all the pop-world craziness.” The entire wardrobe had to be put together in the middle of fashion week!
The costumes mix haute couture techniques with the designer’s “obsession” for heavy sportswear and streetwear elements. The opening outfit (pictured below) consists of a “dark and romantic” black floor-length ruffled silk-crepe cape and black nappa thigh-high boots. In more recent photos added in above, from her concert in Toronto, Canada on March 18th, you can see Riccardo’s embroidered parka made especially for Rihanna in all it’s glory. View this look on Instagram (here).
I enjoyed making these looks, Rihanna represents what young and amazing means today. She is punk and talented. She offers intelligence, energy and pure beauty. Rihanna has what every girl inspires to have, She is the face of her generation –Riccardo Tisci

During her final show of the European leg of her tour in Helsinki Finland, Rihanna debuted a new look! Of course she didn’t stray far from the common thread in this tour, Givenchy. For this new costume, she wore more custom designs from creative director, Riccardo Tisci. Her outfit consisted of a black sheer top with stars accented at the sleeves along with thigh-high nappa leather boots. These custom-made boots are very similar to the pair she wore with her other Givenchy look, with the exception that these feature white laces at the shaft.
Adam Selman | Manolo Blahnik
For this particular look above, Adam Selman puts his skills to work, creating for Rihanna another amazing custom design. He designed her leather bustier as well as her leather pants. On her feet, she wore custom-made snakeskin boots designed by Manolo Blahnik. For this rock ‘n’ roll section, Mel Ottenberg describes it as: “eighties David Lee Roth bouncing around on stage mixed with a sleek Lamborghini/Ferrari situation”. View this look on Instagram (here).
Our working relationship is seamless, I am so particular and hands on with everything I do, and that can be difficult, but with Adam, it never is. Oftentimes, I describe what I’m thinking for my show or my collection, and his execution is exactly what I wanted –Rihanna
Raf Simons | Eres | Wolford | JPG | Christian Louboutin
In this outfit, Rihanna wears a “Sea of Desire” see-through dress designed by Raf Simons. The original ‘Raf Simons 1995’ line was inspired by Ed Ruscha’s ‘Sea of Desire’ paintings. The designer has come up with not only t-shirts, but also crew necks, bags, and hoodies displaying this same design. Raf put together a custom font and design that Rihanna wore for the tour. The website Oki-Ni carried a few of the above mentioned items, but as of late have sold out!
Under her sheer dress, Rihanna wore an Eres bra coupled with shorts from Wolford. Rihanna’s accessories consisted of a necklace that was custom-made by Michael Schmidt and Jean Paul Gaultier shades from Depuis 1924.

Adam Selman | Manolo Blahnik | Lynn Ban
Here, Rihanna wore a red custom-made jersey top and skirt designed by Adam Selman. You may remember that Rihanna wore this same outfit before, in white after the Grammy’s at Mozza & Supperclub. To review that look & several others from Grammy night, take a look at our detailed fashion recap (here). She complimented this look with red ankle strap pumps designed by Manolo Blahnik. View this look on Instagram (here).
With Rihanna, I’ve been trying to keep things simple and clean and let her shine. She is such a presence that she doesn’t need to wear loud clothes or costumes right now, she really can throw on a rag and make it look glamorous –Adam Selman
Rihanna debuted an added accessory in Philadelphia. For this concert she incorporated a beautiful French paste necklace from Lynn Ban, courtesy of her stylist Mel Ottenberg. This necklace is a vintage piece from Lynn’s archive — a 1960’s Christian Dior rhinestone bib necklace that Adam and Mel really loved and chose for his outfit.
Adam Selman | Pierre Hardy | Versace | Lynn Ban
Here, ‘all we see is signs’ as Rihanna delves into Act IV of her concert, wearing a hologram dollar bill mini-dress, with matching sneakers that were designed by Pierre Hardy. Her stylist, Adam Selman uploaded a photo of the custom-made fabric he used for this look on his Instagram (here). This sparking iridescent outfit seems to be a favorite look amongst her fan base, receiving rave reviews on all social forums.
During her concert in Philadelphia last night, Rihanna revealed another piece of her iridescent outfit. Working with the same dollar-bill fabric from Adam Selman, she emerged wearing a four-pocket hologram long-sleeved jacket that covered her matching mini-dress.
The most amazing thing about Rihanna is what a chameleon she is. She’s always up for something new. She’s fearless, she knows what she likes, and it’s fun to see which ideas she’ll jump for. – Mel Ottenberg
In addition, she added jewelry to this look that wasn’t displayed in her previous concert in Buffalo. Rihanna wore a Swarovski crystal bracelet designed by Lynn Ban to complete her outfit. Mel also told style.com that this look actually began with a pair of Pierre Hardy sneakers made just for the tour. He went on to say: “The whole thing is very Thug Life Tupac mixed with nineties candy raver”.
Upon giving us the exclusive on the jewelry Rihanna wore for this tour, it was revealed that this crystal bracelet has a story behind it! They tried many different bracelets of Lynn’s for this iridescent dollar bill outfit, but the problem was, Rihanna felt they would fly off when she was dancing and that the clasps were too complicated when she had such a quick change. So, Lynn designed this bracelet with a strong velcro closure for her — and she loved it! This piece definitely withstood all of Rihanna’s onstage activities and made for an attractive accessory to Adam’s ingenious designs!
