Elsewhere, Rihanna has recently been spotted donning new hair, and to complement her blonde tresses she wore an all-black look with a mock neck bodysuit.

Nigo Teases A Nike Sneaker
The designer and long-time creative partner of Pharrell might’ve just teased a Nike collaboration. On his Instagram, he posted a picture of himself wearing a brown colorway of Nike Air Force 3s in New York. As reported in April, Nigo did sign a deal to do partnerships with Nike with plans to launch designs in 2024, per Complex. The sleek brown sneaker might be the first to drop in 2024 from this partnership. The Air Force 3 was originally released in 1988 and re-released in 2005, so it would be iconic to have Nigo’s Nike debut be an archival shoe.
