Dinner wear doesn’t get much flashier than Rihanna’s dazzling neon yellow set. The new mom was photographed out and about at Nobu in downtown New York City, pairing a bold red lip and her new bangs with a striking yellow Balenciaga set. She accessorized with black sunglasses, as you do when you want to avoid the paparazzi’s camera flash, and your outfit is as bright as clothes get.
Rihanna has yet to give an interview since welcomes his son with her boyfriend A$AP Rocky in May, but she spoke in April about the influence she imagines her child will have on her. “[I know] they’re going to teach me more than I could ever teach them,” she said. “And I want them to go for it. I want to see who they are in the world, who they will become. Because I’m just here to keep them on track – a passenger as much as the driver.”
She said that she and Rocky had no intention of having a gender reveal party or anything. “When we’re ready to tell the world, we’ll just tell them,” she said.
She added that she felt brave to say yes to as much as possible during her pregnancy. “I think I even say yes to more now because I know it’s going to be different on the other side of this,” she said. “At first I expected a magical change, but in reality I remain who I am. None of the dials are turned down.”
