Rihanna closed out the Met Gala red carpet in Balenciaga with her boyfriend A$AP Rocky last night, but that was only her first look of the evening, naturally. The singer was photographed again arriving at her Met Gala after party in a very modern flapper-esque look. Rihanna paired a cropped black top with a sheer black skirt. She accessorized with a sheer bejeweled black cap, choker, diamond bracelets, rings, and a clutch.
Rihanna spoke to Sarah Paulson for Interviewin 2019 about how she initially didn’t envision herself having multiple businesses. Rihanna is now a billionaire because of the success of her music and acting career plus her beauty line Fenty Beauty and lingerie line Savage x Fenty. The ambition grew as her career did, she explained.
Initially, “I had one dream and that was for my music to be heard all over the world,” Rihanna said. “I didn’t even think about the fame part, and then that came, and I was like, ‘Oh, shoot. Do I really want to do this?’ But the thing that keeps me alive and passionate is being creative. With every business outlet, I’m making something from a vision to a reality, and that’s the thing I really enjoy. Music had led me to these other outlets, and to things that I genuinely love. My mom pretty much worked in the beauty and perfume industry for a long time—she did makeup for people and was a makeup artist—so I always loved that.”
