Rihanna Wore Burgundy Box Braids to Fenty Pop-Up in New York City

It’s been about a month since Rihanna expanded her empire beyond music, makeup, and lingerie to include perhaps the most historic addition to her résumé: a high-end fashion line under LVMH. Like so many of her endeavors, the brand is called Fenty (her last name), and on Tuesday night, she gave New York City its first taste of her new apparel — but her latest hairstyle arguably stole the show.

Seen with long, black waves as recently as May 24, Rihanna switched up her look for Fenty x Webster (a luxury retailer in NYC’s SoHo neighborhood). She stunned onlookers with gorgeous new burgundy box braids that were almost as long as her hot-pink minidress’s ruched hem. She paired the new braids, which were left loose at the ends, with vivid lipstick that matched her dress, warm blush and eye shadow, and black winged eyeliner.

Although this is Rihanna’s first major hair-color change of 2019, it isn’t her first set of box braids this year. In April, she posted a photo of herself from Barbados with musician Buju Banton, and in it, she’s seen wearing gorgeous, waist-length braids.

However, this isn’t the first time Rihanna has worn a braided, dark-red look. She wore a Rapunzel-like braid to the 2011 Met Gala, and just a few days later, she tried a side-swept fishtail style while performing in Milan.
