On Friday, Rihanna accompanied boyfriend A$AP Rocky to his Puma Formula One Pop Up launch event in Las Vegas after flying to the city the day before. The ANTI singer was wearing a striking deep brown leather coat covered in decorative pockets and ribbed detailing. She had the collar up, and the coat’s hem went all the way down to her open toe black pumps.
The Fenty Beauty founder had her hair swept up into an elegant top knot, and wore glittering De Beers diamonds in her ears for some shine, as well as several silver chains, and on one leg she wore a silver anklet. There was a touch of silver shimmer on her lids and she wore a glossy dark pink lip.
A$AP Rocky wore a few items from his limited Puma x F1 collection, including neon green racing gloves, a distressed leather racing jacket with colorful lining, and a pair of navy blue exercise pants with the Puma logo emblazoned across the front. The rapper was named creative director of Puma in October.
“A$AP Rocky’s fashion knowledge, style, and cultural expertise is set to help bring a new perspective to F1’s growing audience, as he will be developing bespoke capsule collections designed by him, that will influence the brand’s seasonal design directions moving forward,” it reads on the F1 website.
In his own statement, Rocky said, “Working with brands as iconic as PUMA, and as innovative as F1, has been truly inspiring. When the world sees what we’re doing, I believe a shift will happen with how brands approach taking risks and working with diverse creatives.”
The couple held hands and made their way through the crowd together, smiling and chatting with attendees. This event is just the beginning, and more drops are expected next year, beginning in Miami.
