Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are two powerful fashion influencers, but together they bring it up to a level that makes them one of the most stylish celebrity couples. The dynamic duo originally sparked dating rumors in 2013, after Riri starred in Rocky’s, “Fashion Killa” music video. However, they continued to maintain a platonic, but flirtatious friendship in the public eye amidst a handful of various high-profile relationships that weathered between the two throughout the years.
Rihanna’s appearance in the fitting video was just the tip of the iceberg for the couple. The pair has continued to work on various projects together, including Rihanna’s Fenty Skin campaign.
Before their friendship blossomed into love, fans know that the Bad Gal has been romantically involved with Chris Brown, Drake and businessman and philanthropist Hassan Jameel before making it official with Pretty Flacko. A$AP Rocky has also had a fair share of relationships and was rumored to be dating Kendall Jenner, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea and Chanel Iman.
In 2021, the rapper officially sparked dating rumors after he called Riri the “love of his life” during an interview, and since then they have been labeled as #RelationshipGoals.
The couple might have a fairytale love story, but it’s their style that drives everyone wild. They tend to give a masterclass in fashion anytime they step out. Rihanna’s knack for styling vintage gems with new season pieces matches Rocky’s eclectic style. The “Work” singer is known for being a sartorial risk taker, after all, only she can make a wine glass an accessory and make walking on grates look as if she’s walking on a runway.
Lord Flacko has also been labeled a fashion icon as he’s always effortlessly dripping with swag. The “Dope” actor’s style has evolved from street goth to high-fashion throughout his career. His confidence and fashion sense has positioned him as the face of numerous campaigns and brands like, Alexander Wang and Dior Homme. He is now the artistic director for Pacsun. The “Peso” artist has released three collaborations with the footwear and apparel brand. He recently unveiled his new pair of A$AP Worldwide x Vans Slip-Ons, which will release soon. Here, we take a look at the couple’s most incomparable fashion looks.
