Rihanna in Rihanna for River Island in NYC

Posted on August 20, 2013

Sometimes Ri takes a break from being a diva and decides to be a walking billboard instead. A girl’s gotta eat, after all.


Rihanna leaves Da Silvano restaurant after having brunch in New York City.

Rihanna for River Island Collection

She’s working like gangbusters to dress this stuff up as much as possible. We don’t think we’ve ever seen her wearing so much jewelry. We’re amazed she can move her hands at all.

Ri? You can’t dress this look up, girl. We don’t care how big the Chanel logo is on your shades, you’re not wearing pants or a top at the moment.

    Heck, she has more jewelry on just her torso than I have on my entire body. (Ok, almost.)

    • marlie

      It must be so hard when one is getting undressed to remember to take all that crap off.

      • kimmeister

        Maybe that’s why she’s barely dressed, so there’s less work to get undressed.

  • formerlyAnon

    My (months or years long) streak is broken. The first thing I thought was NOT “She’s so pretty.”

  • MilaXX

    I liked her Carnival hair better. The rest is pure RiRi

  • NC_Meg

    I would expect nothing less from a clothing line by Rihanna.

    • Lily-Rygh

      Or nothing more!

      • Kristin McNamara

        But why one would wear this outfit (particularly the top) while out to EAT is beyond me. Can you say food baby danger? (Not saying she has one.. just saying the potential is there, as she’s out to brunch.) I would NOT think bikini tops would make for a very pleasant dining experience.

        • Little_Olive

          For her or for the other patrons?

          • Kristin McNamara

            For her! Wouldn’t you be self-conscious of your bare belly after a meal?

          • Little_Olive

            Oh, well, I wouldn’t worry; I would guess either 1) she doesn’t really eat or 2) if she does, she’d button up that jacker, or better yet, IN true Ri-Ri style, take this outfit into the ultimate fug and tie the jacket around her waist.

    OK, I know there are other things to comment about but it’s in the mid 80s in NYC. Not wool hat weather exactly.

    • AmeliaEve

      She wears wigs all the time. Not that much difference.

    • ikillplants

      If she were a real person who walks to work or the sub, she would be STANKY by the time she arrived! It was HOT today.

  • Judy_J

    The look on the face of the guy standing behind her in the first photo says it all.

    • Little_Olive

      … although his arm is not devoid of jewelry.

    • VictoriaDiNardo

      Trust me – those old Italian guys at Da Silvano have seen EVERYTHING.

      ( Love the waiter “walking her to her car” ..)

  • AmeliaEve

    Actually, I don’t think this girl eats very often. Look at those abs.

  • Sarah

    I cannot help but wonder what she considers being a G 4 LIFE. Because, in my dictionary, being a cute female pop star and dating some unfortunate male versions of the same does not at all make anything close to a Gangsta. Maybe in her world a G4LIFE goes out in a bra, and that’s badass.

  • Kent Roby

    I would assume by this outfit that RiRi is a much less-expensive much less-stylish rip-off of Gwen’s Lamb line.

  • crash1212

    Love the denim jacket. Hope she didn’t have to go through any metal detectors – cuz she’s probably still there.

  • marlie


  • frannyprof

    Ugly ugly ugly

  • Darcy H

    I started to go look up how much that “top” would cost, but then I decided I didn’t want to lose my remaining faith in humanity.

    • formerlyAnon


    • NC_Meg

      You made me curious so I had to look. I don’t see these pieces on the site but $62 for a mesh cropped tee? No thank you. If I want half a shirt, I’m sure I can find one much cheaper elsewhere.

      • Darcy H

        Or I could buy groceries for a month and take a pair of scissors to one of the shirts I already have!

  • Anniebet

    I suppose there’s an actual person behind all the jewelry and shilled out “clothes”, but damned if she comes across as anything but a caricature. An extremely wealthy one, obviously.

  • Glam Dixie

    There is nothing here I like. She looks ridiculous.

  • Introspective

    feels cheap. and like its trying too hard. even for ri ri.

  • Chipster

    She looks silly!

  • alyce1213

    It’s all trying too hard and looks really cheap. And ugly.

    • “Attention shoppers! We have a blue light special on quote, thug life, unquote, attire and accessories on aisle six.”

  • Just Me

    Ri, stop taking style cues from Miley. That shit ain’t cute.

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    I don’t care at all for the jewelry that goes beneath the bra. This is a mess.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Hey! She’s wearing my husband’s long johns! Damn, didn’t know the old man was so on-trend.
    She looks like an idiot.

  • Shawn EH

    If only that jacket were a … jean dress?

  • RebeccaKW

    While I hate leggings used as pants (or long johns or whatever these are) at least she has bottoms on. I can’t see ass cheek. So, I can’t really sign off on wearing them as pants, but I do want to applaud the lack of visible booty.

  • The font of her “RIRI” is the same as the “PULL” on the door. I could not help notice that. Makes her logo look very generic and utilitarian.

  • She looks as ridiculous as any woman who chooses to go this fashion route would. So way to keep it real?

  • filmcricket

    She’s worn worse get-ups, and it takes more than this to ruin that bod and face. But this is So. Tired. in terms of style. Like, L’il Kim & Foxy Brown are rolling their eyes very hard at her right now.

  • Sara__B

    One of the last places on earth I want to see my name is on underwear elastic.

  • GTrain

    Every time I see her I remember how I stopped eating at Da Silvano long ago because it’s a celebrity runway.

  • StellaZafella

    With all the big letters in this ensemble I thought, for a moment, that the “PULL” sign on the door was part of her outfit.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Brilliant! haha!!

  • SewingSiren

    Love the whole look. Even though I can’t imagine it looking good on anyone else.

  • elemspbee

    shoes the best part of the outfit! what brand is that?

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    It’s a little too hot in nyc for a hat and a hoodie. Nice shoes though.

  • quiltrx

    She looks really foolish. I hope someone with a strong spine told her so.
    I do like the (non-ri-branded) bag, from what I see of it.

  • I miss Left-Eye.
    That’s all.

  • Qitkat

    The older gentleman looks about how I feel about this. As do the expressions on the other bystanders.
    But clearly she is in orbit above it all.

  • A Shiny O’Connor

    Oh Gawd. The sexy tomboy act is getting old.

  • Danielle

    That’s… a whole lotta look.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Normally I like her weird outfits, but this is HIDEOUS.

  • NoveltyRocker

    Is that a multi-thousand dollar lunch pail?

  • shelley514

    All that River Island Rihanna swag is A HOT DAMN MESS! Sit it down RiRi. Those clothes are hideous.
