Play “Birthday Cake” on repeat because today is Rihanna’s birthday
The hit singer turns 32 years old today and has a whole lot to celebrate. While she is well known for a successful music career and has a new studio album dropping any day now, Rihanna also has become a major force in the fashion world, beyond her impeccable personal style. Her first major foray into designing occurred when she signed with Puma in 2014; in September 2015, she went on to create her first-ever Fenty (an ode to the superstar’s surname) product, the Fenty Puma Creeper, which won an FN Achievement Award for Shoe of the Year in 2016.
After the immediate success of their first footwear silhouette, Puma and Rihanna then released a trainer, a faux-fur slide and two must-see runway shows. Since then, the songstress has gone on to expand the Fenty brand after trademarking the name for a series of lines, including Fenty Beauty, which launched in 2017. She then debuted her inclusive lingerie collection Savage x Fenty in 2018, before she and LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton made their partnership official in 2019 and she became the first female designer of color at the helm of a luxury brand under the conglomerate. Together, they dropped the first Fenty collection consisting of apparel, footwear, accessories and more in May 2019.
With all the success that Rihanna has achieved in 32 years, it is no surprise that celebrities from every industry have been vocal about their support and admiration for the multihyphenate. Specifically, this comes by way of wearing Rihanna’s designs as part of their own ensembles.
Supermodel Bella Hadid, who walked in the latest Savage x Fenty show, chose Fenty Affairs Pumps in the bright green “Minty Fresh” colorway as she posed in a sunny setting in Brooklyn, N.Y., in June 2019. The style retails for $625 and features an elongated pointed toe and dual leather straps on a 4.5-inch heel, available in black and tan.
Bella’s older sister, Gigi, is also a fan of Rihanna’s products; the 24-year-old has rocked Fenty Puma faux-fur slides, the hit Creeper sneakers, and a fuzzy oversize coat from the collaboration.
Lena Dunham joins the pack of endless stars who own Rihanna-branded apparel and footwear. The “Girls” star arrived at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival wearing satin green Fenty Puma sneakers to match her boldly patterned dress on the red carpet.
On top of the stars who choose Fenty styles, Rihanna herself frequently wears pieces from her own lines, which includes everything from clothing and accessories to unique heels and daring pieces of lingerie.
