Wearing a flashy brown leather and sheer ensemble, Rihanna headed into a birthday party for her mother in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District in New York City.
The Fenty entrepreneur, 33, wore a brown leather blazer paired with matching studded brown gloves and sheer pants. While getting out of the backseat of her car Rihanna wowed the onlooker with her ensemble as she removed her black face mask to flash a smile.
The Umbrella songstress wore white pumps with ankle straps and carried a small Fendi tote bag hanging from her arm. She completed her look with her dark hair pulled up in a braid. She coloured her lips bright red. As she posed for the cameras while walking into the glitzy Pastis restaurant, she was seen carrying a colourful gift bag with a happy birthday written on it.
As for her mother, who is celebrating her 52nd year, she wore a white dress underneath a knit beige poncho and rocked long black suede boots.
Rihanna for Stop Asian Hate March
Rihanna’s last outing was on Sunday. She showed her support for the Asian-American community when she took part in a Stop Asian Hate March.
The pop star joined her longtime assistant Tina Truong, who documented the protest via Instagram. Before taking to the streets, Rihanna was photographed preparing by making a neon-green poster reading “Hate = Racism Against God!”
While dancing and mingling with fellow marchers at the march, she revealed the other side of the poster, emblazoned with “#StopAsianHate” in hot pink. For the march, Rihanna chose to remain mostly undetected in a gray hoodie, a vintage leather bomber jacket, and leather pants paired with a black baseball cap, mask, and sunglasses.
However, at one point when a fellow protester asked for her Instagram handle to tag her in a photo. She proceeded to type it into his phone with her knuckles, revealing her identity. “That’s you?!” he asked in disbelief.
It wasn’t the first time Rihanna has spoken out against Asian hate. Following the Atlanta spa shooting, where eight people, six of whom were Asian women, were murdered, the singer took to Instagram. “What happened yesterday in Atlanta was brutal, tragic, and is certainly not an isolated incident by any means,” she wrote. “AAPI hate has been rampantly perpetuated and it’s disgusting! I’m heartbroken for the Asian community and my heart is with the loved ones of those we lost yesterday. The hate must stop. #ProtectAAPILives.”
