Rihanna turned up to her Fenty Beauty launch last night ready to take her rightful place on the beauty throne (Kylie whomst?) dressed in not one but two outfits fit for royalty, created by none other than foremost princess outfit purveyor Oscar de la Renta.
Being that RiRi, although not native to this country, is the closest thing to American royalty, this only makes sense, though. First up, she wore a marigold-colored, two-piece 'fit that gave us 2015 Met Gala nostalgia. She did not wear a bra, ducking fuh, because this is Rihanna we're talking about. Do her tits bother you? They're covered in a T-shirt, girl!
Rih then slipped into an (even more) dramatic lewk, this time a velvety-black, floral-inspired number from Oscar's AW '17 collection that actually might literally be covered in Swarovski crystals, girl.
The look, incredible in itself just from the front view, was revealed to have a gorgeous, crystal roses party in the back, as seen above.
Can we talk about those thigh-high boots for a sec, though? We feel it's only appropriate to honor them with a moment of silence to fully appreciate what's going on here. Is it just us, or are these boots making everyone else... like, emotional? They're stiletto boots... swathed in small crystal flowers that match the party in the back... we just can't deal.
Leave it to RiRi to usurp her own damn self in a series of fits that gradually intensify throughout the evening. We're not worthy!
