In case you’ve been asleep for the last couple of weeks, you may have missed that Rihanna is pregnant(!). If you’re now doing anything *but* Googling ‘Rihanna’s Maternity Looks’ right now, then we aren’t the same kind of people. If. you are Googling that, then scroll this way.
From fans congratulating her and speculating how this may impact the much-anticipated album release to Gigi Hadid accidentally starting a major rumour about the possibility of it being twins (spoiler: the “three angels” she was referring to were “rih/rocky/baby lol”), it’s been one of the most-talked about celebrity stories of 2022.
And if the first influx of Rihanna’s maternity looks are anything to go by, we doubt we’ll be talking about much else for the next few months.
Undeniably one of our generation’s most major style icons, there was no doubt about it that the first-time-mum would bring her A-game to the maternity-wear scene, but even the most devoted members of her Navy couldn’t have anticipated just how lit that A-game would be.
Take the announcement as your first cue. Most celebrities – even the very chicest – reveal their news via a little sonogram image, a professionally-taken intimate shot or perhaps even a red carpet appearance with a surprise plus one bumping along beneath the gown.
Not our Rih, who side-stepped all other routes in favour of a maternity shoot in the middle of the snowy streets of New York. While the bump was undoubtedly the most major talking point, coming a very close second was that pink vintage Chanel puffer coat, plucked from Karl Lagerfeld’s Autumn/Winter 1996 collection.
Pairing the look with a Chanel chain belt and ripped blue jeans, she accessorised the bump like a total pro, adorning it with draped pearl necklaces and a Christian Lacroix crucifix. Let’s face it, this baby is going to have a better wardrobe than the rest of us put together…
