Rihanna was spotted heading out for the night in NYC, on her way to Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club. She looked every bit the punk in a $60 Marc Hundley x Opening Ceremony “And If The People Stare” t-shirt deconstructed by Breeze by KD, a $126 Mark Fast Reptile Mesh Bra Top, a pair of $213 J Brand 811 Mid Rise Skinny Tulum Jeans, and $250 Forfex x OC No Kill Iron Toe Cap Flight Sneakers:
She kept her makeup fresh and threw on her favorite chain link choker.
Her sold-out graphic tee features the quote “And if the people stare, then the people stare”, a tribute to The Smiths’ song “Hand in Glove”, with the band’s name on the back of the t-shirt. Rih Rih took her shirt to Breeze by KD, who made it even more unique.
Her bandeau bikini top boasts skinny shoulder straps and snake-effect cutouts.
Her jeans feature a mid-rise, skinny legs, and ripped knee.
Her high-top nylon sneakers are a collaboration with Italian designer Gio Forbice and boast steel toes, velcro patches, zipper closures down the heels, and 1″ rubber platforms.
I love this! Maybe Rihanna had some help from the people at Opening Ceremony, but this look makes sense and harks back to last year when she first released “Talk That Talk” and was channeling punk. I’m also a huge fan of The Smiths so perhaps I am bit biased.
What do you think? Hot! or Hmm…?
