Rihanna, the Barbados-born pop star is making history as the first black woman to head a fashion house.
She shocked everyone in Paris with a surprise visit to the launch and Rihanna is loving the publicity tour of her new Fenty line launched with LVMH (which owns Dior, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy, among others).
Rihanna told reporters she has been given complete creative freedom to design her first fashion line for the French luxury brand.
She told T magazine it’s for all sizes, “You wear what looks good on you and that’s it. I’m thick and curvy right now, and so if I can’t wear my own stuff then, I mean, that’s not gonna work, right? And my size is not the biggest size. It’s actually closer to the smallest size we have: We go up to a [French size] 46 (a US size 14). We’re saying we can meet you at any one drop that we put out.”
