Everything Rihanna and A$AP Rocky do is fashionable, but the power couple upped the ante with their pregnancy reveal. They confirmed that they’re expecting their first child by releasing a series of images shot by celebrity photographer Miles Diggs. The pictures, taken beneath Riverside Drive, showcase Rihanna’s growing baby bump and the pair’s enviable style.
With A$AP looking cool in baggy leather pants, a Carhartt jean jacket, and a hoodie sweater and Rihanna sporting a long pink puffer from Karl Lagerfeld’s fall 1996 collection for Chanel, unbuttoned to reveal her bump, and layers of bejewelled chains, they made the whole new-parents thing look cool.
Rihanna enjoys variety, but her recent choices have helped to distract from her bump and keep the internet guessing. For the past two weeks she’s offered covert previews of her maternity style while out and about in Manhattan. Her oversized outerwear and statement accessories concealed the news until she was ready to share it with fans.
Whether she was popping into Sephora to surprise Fenty fans in a bright orange Bottega Veneta shearling or heading out to dinner in a Martine Rose windbreaker and Prada fur stole worn with a marabou-feather-trim Saint Laurent skirt, Rihanna kept her fashions colourful and unexpected. The sole constant within her wardrobe was a diamond vintage signet ring from Briony Raymond.
Now that the news is out, Rihanna isn’t holding back, and her bold midriff display is entirely in line with her fearless take on fashion. Never afraid to show a little skin, it’s unlikely that Rihanna will hide beneath baggy sweaters or shapeless silhouettes. In the latest photos, she’s glowing and decked out in jewels; we can expect her to carry that energy for the rest of her pregnancy.
