Another one of our ‘best-friends-in-our-head,’ Fenty beauty queen Rihanna made headlines this week with news that she reportedly turned down an offer to perform at the NFL’s Superbowl Halftime Show, as a form of protest with her standing in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick.
While RiRi has yet to confirm the rumors, what we can take away from this buzz is that she’s further solidified herself as a true icon with integrity -and style- for days, and because ESSENCE is #BlackGirlMagic headquarters, we wanted to take this moment to remind the world of Queen Ri’s continuous dedication to a fashion slay. She may have turned down the NFL but she never turns down an opportunity to look fabulous!
We stan an ‘Unapologetic’ Barbadian queen that speaks her mind, slays every style moment and stands up for her people. Scroll below for 10 times that Rihanna gave us a Lewk!
