Street style legend Rihanna was back at it again at the airport this week. The singer arrived in New York City dressed in a New York Yankees hat, grey sweats by Palace Skateboards, blingy dangle earrings…and silver Manolo Blahnik heels from the line’s brand new spring 2019 collection. The casual-formal contrast is just another example of RiRi’s unparalleled airport style.
On June 8, she was photographed in an all-white ensemble with matching white sneakers while arriving at JFK airport in New York City:
And on May 4, she went for an all-denim look by Off-White while at JFK airport. Rihanna wore slide instead of heels but kept the monochrome approach.
Rihanna, by the way, recently talked to Interview about why she doesn’t let criticism—of her music, her fashion, of anything—really get to her or stop her from doing what she wants.
“I have to say, I’ve always had pretty tough skin—even as a little girl, which was completely due to my parents,” she started. “They never sheltered me in any way. They would tease me, and I would tease them right back. By the time I got to school, I always had this feeling like the kids were stupid. Maybe that was god’s way of preparing me for what my life was going to be like. I don’t feel any way about people’s comments. I remember being a kid and being like, ‘Wow! I’m in a chat room. I can say whatever I want. They don’t know how old I am. They don’t know who I am, or where I am.’ There’s that idea of being a child behind a screen and having that feeling like you can say anything. That child is who I imagine behind a comment every time I see one. They would never say that to my face. They probably wouldn’t even say hello.”
