Emulating Rihanna is no easy feat. Sure, you can cop all the Fenty and Stance products you want, but that alone is not enough to channel the bad gal's true essence. Being Rih comes with certain perks, such as wearing wait-listed YSL boots while they concurrently debut on the runway and modeling jewelry months prior to its official release. The latter, however, now brings a surprisingly achievable way to get on RiRi's level. The ornate earrings she wore in her outrageous Paper Magazine cover shoot are available for purchase.
Designed in collaboration between Shannon Stokes, who styled and directed the now-iconic Rihanna Paper cover, and jeweler Chris Habana, three unique styles of earrings are available now through Opening Ceremony's website. A nuanced take on the classic bamboo earring we all know and love, the two styles are all handmade in New York City and both retail at $325.
The pink style, which has a hanging glass pearl, is even named for Rih, called the "THE GOODGIRL/BADGAL STATEMENT BAMBOO EARRINGS." The two variations could serve as an incredible statement piece to mix up a stagnant mid-summer wardrobe. And with its well-documented RiRi co-sign, you can rest assured that you're on the cutting edge of cool.
