While Rihanna and A$AP Rocky chose to skip the red carpet at the Golden Globes tonight, they were still undeniably the best dressed couple. Sitting together at their table, Rihanna – who was up for Best Original Song for her Black Panther single, “Lift Me Up” – and Rocky both opted for black ensembles. Though on them, the classic formula didn’t feel at all boring. Instead, it felt incredibly fresh and current.
Rihanna’s take on formalwear tonight included a custom Schiaparelli look designed by Daniel Roseberry. The velvety, black strapless gown was punctuated with an oversized cape detail at the back and a sweeping train. The subtle colorway – though in an extreme silhouette! – allowed for her blinding Cartier earrings and 18-karat white gold and diamond choker to take the spotlight. (She does have a song called “Diamonds”, lest we forget.)
Rocky, meanwhile, sported a traditional black tuxedo with satin lapels, complete with a white button-up shirt and slim black tie. His diamond earrings complemented her showstopping necklace – because with these two, it’s always a coordinated affair. Now that they’re busy parents, it’s admirable that they continue to link up on their fashion choices. Talk about the coolest parents’ night out ever.
