Rihanna nearly broke the internet last night, confirming the pregnancy rumors and revealing that she is, in fact, expecting her first child. While most celebrity couples choose to reveal the happy news via social media or spokespeople, the Barbadian singer and her partner A$AP Rocky did so showcasing covetable style at the same time.
The couple was snapped by paparazzi during a walk in the snow, and even without the pregnancy reveal, Rihanna’s ensemble would have had people talking. The mother-to-be was dressed in the highly popular shade of hot pink, in the form of a long puffer coat from Chanel’s fall 1996 collection by Karl Lagerfeld. Standing beside Rocky under Manhattan’s Williamsburg bridge, Rihanna left the vintage piece unbuttoned to reveal her baby bump, which was adorned with bejeweled chains. A Chanel chain belt was looped around her light blue baggy jeans, which effortlessly coordinated her look with that of her partner, who wore a Carhatt jean jacket over a hoodie sweater and paired with baggy leather pants. The Fenty Beauty founder’s glam was also complete with matching glossy pink lips, contoured and blushed cheeks, eyeshadow, and natural curls styled in a half-up half-down style.
This particular look is certainly the most iconic one in the singer’s series of maternity outfits which she has been sporting since before her pregnancy was confirmed. At the 2021 Met Gala, the couple arrived fashionably late in similar oversized ensembles: Rihanna, in a custom Balenciaga coat, and Rocky, in a multicolor patchwork wrap by ERL. Since then, the beauty mogul’s public wardrobe has featured a range of belly-hiding outerwear. What they lacked in Rihanna’s usual daring style, they made up for in bold colors. From a tangerine Bottega Veneta coat and a bright red Balenciaga parka, to a royal blue Martine Rose windbreaker, the 33-year-old wore them all. With the pregnancy no longer hidden, come summer, Rihanna may very well ditch the oversized silhouette to show a more fearless side of her maternity wardrobe.
