The soon-to-be mum is ditching anything elastic and keeping her sultry fashion style throughout her pregnancy, and so should you
Yes, you can still feel sexy during pregnancy.
Women try many ways to feel their best during this period, much like how multi-hyphenated artist Rihanna is veering away from traditional maternity fashion to stay true to her style pre-pregnancy.
Her longtime stylist Jahleel Weaver revealed in an interview with Vogue that the Fenty Beauty founder has expressed her disinterest in using elastics and wants to wear pieces that still make her feel sexy. Instead, Rihanna's clothes undergo tailoring to keep her feeling comfortable yet sultry.
Weaver continuously works with Rihanna in creating some of the most alluring maternity ensembles. Below are some of our favourites thus far:
Pregnancy Announcement in Pink
Rihanna officially announced her pregnancy with rapper ASAP Rocky in the best possible way: walking down the snowy streets of New York wearing a gorgeous ensemble that may hint at the baby's gender. Weaver dressed her up in a pink quilted Chanel coat that was unbuttoned from the waist down to show her stomach, ripped denim jeans, and a stunning cross brooch from LACROIX.
Fans of the artist know that she's always been a Fendi girl. It's great to see Rihanna head out for dinner in Santa Monica wearing a 2000s-inspired look: a Fendi crop top paired with low-rise jeans, vintage denim and leopard patchwork coat, and a camo trucker hat. She dazzles under the moonlight with her Patcharavipa diamond necklace and bling from Jacquie Aiche hanging over her tummy.
Festive on the Red Carpet
Rihanna did not hesitate on showing skin while celebrating Fenty Beauty & Fenty Skin at Goya Studios in Los Angeles. She seemed to be in a festive mood as she donned an ombre number while sporting straight hair. The founder posed for the cameras while wearing a custom The Attico outfit.
Shopping in Style
Rihanna was spotted shopping at Couture Kids wearing an Alexander Wang oversize crystal stripe button shirt and YSL shorts. She walked around the store with her MiuMiu socks and Saint Laurent mink fur mules.
Shining from Within
In celebration of the launch of Fenty Beauty at beauty store Ulta Beauty, Rihanna arrived wearing Coperni from head to toe. But Rihanna's outfit isn't ever complete without jewellery. The founder wrapped a Messika diamond body chain around her baby bump that matches all her ear cuff, statement ring and bracelets by Repossi, David Webb, and Hammerman Jewels.
Wearing Lace in LA
Even while wearing an all-black outfit, Rihanna made heads turn in Los Angeles. The singer showed a bit more of her growing baby bump by wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier lace-up cardigan under a Carhartt x Wardrobe.NYC reversible jacket teamed with The Attico stirrup leggings that show her Jimmy Choo pumps.
Queen of the Night
The artist kept her night out ensemble casual in matching colours. She wore a crop top, flared jeans, and snakeskin heels. Keeping her warm during the evening is her brown-toned bomber jacket.
