Here’s a look back at Rihanna’s fashion forward looks at Emilio’s Ballato:

Rihanna has always had her favorites when it comes to restaurants. She absolutely loves Italian food! For instance, time and time again we’ve seen her enjoying dinner at the Italian eateries, Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles and Da Silvano in New York. Well, another Italian restaurant that tops her list in NY is Emilio’s Ballato. In today’s installment of Vintage RiRi, we’ll be taking a look at some of her fashion-forward outfits that she’s worn to this restaurant over the years.

One of her earliest sightings at Emilio’s Ballato was in 2009. 2009 is actually one of our favorite years when it comes to Rihanna’s fashion. We’ve given you extensive looks at all of her major looks during that time period. If you haven’t checked out our Rated R Era Fashion Recap, you can check it out at the very bottom of this post. Rihanna headed to the restaurant in a chic One-Shoulder Dress designed by Alexander Wang and her favorite Miu Miu Lace Up Peep Toe Boots.

Here, we fast-forward to 2010 where Rihanna rocked a bold red do! She was spotted on August 10th at Emilio’s Ballato wearing a grey pantsuit. Her Glen Plaid Blazer and matching Plaid Trousers are from the label, A.L.C.. The jacket retailed at $623.00.

Of course, her look wouldn’t have been complete without a few accessories. She wore Miu Miu’s Studded Oxford Flat Shoes.
