Rihanna attended Paper Magazine’s event in New York on May 6th, 2009: (Updated 4.24.13)

Rihanna had quite a day in New York, on the day of this event. She grabbed a bite to eat at one of her favorite restaurants, Da Silvano, she also made an appearance at the opening of Derek Lam’s boutique, posing with the designer himself in the photo you see below. Rihanna even attended a party at Club Mr. West to meet up with her gal pal, Katy Perry. Today, we’ll be revealing the details on what she wore on this occasion.

Rihanna began her look with sunglasses designed by Christian Dior. The vintage frames are from the designer’s “Monsieur” collection. It’s reasonable to conclude that Rihanna really loved this pair of glasses, as she continued to wear them on several occasions throughout 2009.

Rihanna fittingly wore a suit from Derek Lam’s Spring 2009 Collection, covering an animal print top under the designer blazer. You can review the entire runway collection below.

On her feet, Rihanna opted for Christian Louboutin Rolando Platform Pumps. The bronze leather platform pumps feature a heel that measures approximately 130mm and has a concealed 20mm platform.

In a recent find, we’ve discovered the designer behind the beautiful pearl necklace Rihanna wore here. Rihanna is wearing an Yvel Pearl and 18K Yellow Gold Long Chain Necklace. This piece is set with 7.24ct natural cognac diamonds combined with cream baroque South Sea pearls. Rihanna also wore this same brand of jewelry to the Grammy Awards Ceremony in 2010. You can shop from their currently selection of necklaces (here).
