Music icon and fashion trendsetter, Rihanna, made a much-anticipated comeback to Paris Fashion Week in style. After a brief hiatus following the birth of her second son, the starlet graced Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior couture spring 2024 runway show with her bold presence.
The Dior Couture Spring 2024 Runway Show
The Dior Couture show, held at the famed Musée Rodin on January 22, welcomed Rihanna, who brought her signature twist to the Dior’s celebrated ‘New Look’ silhouette.
W Magazine describes the New Look’s shape as having “rounded, dramatic shoulders and a cinched waist that finishes off into some sort of statement skirt.”
Rihanna, affectionately known as RiRi, embraced this style, accentuating her waist with a chunky black belt and wearing a skirt that fell just beyond her knees.
Rihanna’s Style Statement
Rihanna upped the fashion ante with her unique interpretation of the ‘New Look’. She sported an off-the-shoulder jacket, and gave her outfit an edgy spin with a newsboy baseball cap, leather gloves, dramatic lip liner, and dazzling diamond jewelry.
Rihanna’s Fashion Journey
This Fashion Week appearance marked Rihanna’s first at a designer show since the birth of her second son, Riot Rose, in August. Her previous fashion excursion was Pharrell’s Louis Vuitton menswear debut in Paris last June.
Rihanna’s relationship with Dior dates back to 2015 when she made history as Dior’s first Black ambassador. Her last appearance at a Dior show was in the fall of 2022, during her pregnancy with her first son, RZA.
At that time, she made headlines for her audacious choice of a sheer dress.
Rihanna’s return to Paris Fashion Week and her distinct take on Dior’s ‘New Look’ silhouette once again underscores her status as a style icon. Whether it’s music, fashion, or life, Rihanna continues to walk her path, bold and unapologetic.
