Rihanna + one

The tremor was felt globally, and too, the seismic shift in what was once de rigueur for pregnant mums. Business mogul Rihanna after weeks of speculation revealed her pregnancy without uttering a single word! It was cinematography at its finest. And... Action! The style icon — during a stroll with beau A$AP Rocky in Harlem, New York. Cue: a slight gust of wind to allow her pink Chanel puffer from Karl Lagerfeld’s AW96 collection to effortlessly part, exposing her bare baby bump. She keeps walking and feigns indifference as the Internet crashes.

Mar 1st - Arguably the most dramatic in Rihanna’s boundless maternity fashion compendium, this lingerie look — a compilation of Dior and Savage x Fenty pieces — was a scenestealer at the Dior Fall 2022 show in Paris.

“Rihanna pink puffer jacket” becomes google.com’s most-searched item for the next 48 hours. This, we soon discover, would become the norm as the style-savvy ‘Bad Gal’ spent the next few months completely rewriting the rules of maternity fashion in a festival of low-rise denim, crop tops, belly jewels and maximalist coats and jackets.
