Pregnant Rihanna and her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, were two of many celebrities at the Gucci show during Milan Fashion Week in Milan, Italy, on Friday (Feb. 25).
Rihanna showed off her baby bump through a latex and lace crop top that was nothing short of fashion-forward. Dragon-printed pants were partnered with RiRi’s crop top. The singer completed her outfit with a lavender coat.
“Right now I’m really into pushing the idea of sexy,” Rihanna recently said in reference to her maternal fashion sense. “When women get pregnant, society tends to make it feel like you hide, hide your sexy, and that you’re not sexy right now [but] you’ll get back there and I don’t believe in that sh*t,” the expectant star explained.
“So I’m trying stuff that I might not have even had the confidence to try before I was pregnant,” Rihanna said. “The strappiest, the thinnest, and the more cut-outs the better for me.”
It was just a few weeks ago that Rihanna opened her Savage X Fenty store at the Westerfield Mall in Culver City, California. The celebrity spoke with the press about her new store during her store’s debut.
“I’m trying to challenge myself because it’s a challenge getting dressed and feeling sexy [while pregnant],” Rihanna told Fashionista. “So I’m pushing myself to just go for it, and I’m having fun,” the recording artist shared. “So the stuff that’s more strappy or more revealing or that’s not for maternity, I want that,” Rihanna revealed.
“I would love to dominate this space of lingerie retail, but I also want to keep expanding on what that means,” the entrepreneur said in reference to her desire for Savage X Fenty to be the ultimate standard in lingerie. “Us as a brand, we’ve always been so focused on inclusivity, so I want to be able to expand that,” Rihanna said. “The best way to do that is to have a retail space where we get to experience that one-on-one with the customers and hear that feedback on things they wish they had experienced.”
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child to arrive later this year.
