Of Course Rihanna’s Maternity Style Includes Crop Tops And Latex Outfits

What did you expect?

Rihanna pregnancy style

by Hannah Banks-Walker |

Ever since she announcing her pregnancy with the most fabulous paparazzi photographs, Rihanna's maternity wardrobe has gone from strength to strength. At yesterday's launch for Fenty Beauty, RiRi arrived wearing an outfit that might just be her best to date: Coperni's cult crop top and maxi skirt combo with (wait for it) a body chain around fashion's most fabulous bump.

During fashion month, Rihanna packed the most stupendous wardrobe. At Dior, she did the naked dress, arriving in a gauzy slip that was the perfect foil for her wipe-clean coat and vinyl knee-highs.

At Off-White - where supermodels past and present paid tribute to Virgil Abloh - Rihanna took her seat on the front row wearing a latex dress the colour of a peach from Off-White, of course, a shearling coat and a trio of necklaces that stretched from her neck to the bottom of her bump.

In Milan, meanwhile, she was front page news at Gucci, wearing another outfit that well and truly defied the notion that pregnancy means you should or shouldn't wear certain things. If you're Rihanna - or anyone for that matter - you can wear a latex-and-lace crop top with silky sweatpants and a chainmail-style headpiece, OK?

Let's rewind back to the beginning for a second. The photographs which announced this happy news, which were staged, show the mother-to-be wearing a long pink coat from Chanel's autumn/winter 1996 collection, unbuttoned so that her bump was exposed and draped in jewels. The coat, designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, is a rare piece (one just sold on 1st Dibs for a whopping £16,728).

Rihanna appeared to be wearing the jeans we bought specially for non-uniform day in 2004 (no? Just me?) which surely mopped up several inches of snow as she walked. They were, of course, decorated with a vintage chain belt also from Chanel.

Rihanna must have amassed a rather impressive Chanel archive by now, having bought several vintage pieces from independent sellers over the past couple of years. That makes for one impressive maternity wardrobe.

But it's not all valuable fashion history. Before the announcement, Ri wore an oversized Celine puffer jacket, which she styled with joggers and a hoodie from AWAKE with a trusty pair of Vans, designed in collaboration with A$AP Rocky.

Then there was her look for date night. Eschewing the more conventional maternity staples (banish all thoughts of leggings here), Rihanna teamed a Martine Rose tracksuit top with a Saint Laurent mini skirt (trimmed with faux-fur) and a Prada scarf.

At Gucci, Rihanna upstaged one and all with a latex-and-lace crop top. Also, could anyone else pull off this chainmail headpiece? No, we didn't think so.
