Rihanna Makes a Case for Layering Bold Animal Prints on a Night Out With A$AP Rocky

Whether she’s on the stage, walking a red carpet, or just spending a day with family, Rihanna never shies away from making a sartorial statement. Case in point: her latest outfit, seen this weekend when the star was out for a quiet dinner with A$AP Rocky.

For her evening outing at Wally’s in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Rihanna pulled out all the stops in a layered animal print look using archival pieces from the ’90s. The singer and beauty mogul wore a tiger print coat from Roberto Cavalli’s fall 1999 collection, but instead of layering it over a solid hue, she amped up the drama with a long sleeved tiger print dress. Take a closer look below.


Rihanna’s animal print look spotlighted the beauty of tiger stripes

Featuring a semi-cowl neck, Rihanna’s tiger print dress was designed by none other than Dolce & Gabbana. First seen on Kate Moss at the maison’s 1996 show, the mini dress came with an A-line silhouette and what seems to be an asymmetrical hemline. Along with that all-eyes-on-me coat, Rihanna’s dress was was styled with muted black accessories: think ebony leggings, pointy-toe pumps, and despite the dim lighting, large black sunglasses.


A bold ensemble deserves an equally strong beauty look, and Rihanna seems to agree. For her night out, the multi-hyphenate chose show-stopping red lips, and pulled her honey-streaked locks back into a sleek updo. No need for chunky jewelry here. Rihanna skipped on baubles to make sure all eyes were on her wild ensemble.

As the mercury continues to drop, a cozy outfit like Rihanna’s seems like just the ticket.
