Rihanna is the belle of the ball during New York Fashion Week, complete with front row appearances, an event with Fendi and three — count 'em, three! — magazine covers currently on newsstands.


The style maven designed a pair of baguettes for the classic Italian label, to be auctioned off for her charity The Clara Lionel Foundation (named after her grandparents Clara and Lionel). So far, the bags have raised over $300,000 with nearly a month left to bid.

RiRi promoted the auction at an event at Fendi's brand-new flagship store at the Park Hyatt in NYC. "Fashion for charity! Thank you Fendi for letting me team up with you, on behalf of the #ClaraLionelFoundation, on this wonderful opportunity to give back!!!! #NYFW," she posted on Instagram with a throwback pic of herself with creative director Karl Lagerfeld.

Earlier, Rihanna spent some time downtown sitting front row at Kanye West's first-ever runway show for his new adidas collection. The fashion icon also just announced a new magazine cover — her third one this month! — for W Korea. She's also currently the cover girl for Harper's Bazaar and i-D.

Though the pop star is running the town for fashion, the "FourFiveSeconds" singer has yet to announce a release date for her anticipated upcoming album, which is executive produced by West.
