Rihanna already proved herself to be queen of the pregnancy outfit when she was pregnant with her son last year, and she’s continuing her world domination in her second pregnancy, stepping out in L.A. for her 35th birthday in white bodycon and a serious statement jacket.
The Super Bowl performer held a private dinner at the Santa Monica celebrity haunt and her personal favorite, Giorgio Baldi. The guest list seemed tight — according to TMZ, partner A$AP Rocky was of course in attendance, as was Rihanna’s bestie Melissa Forde and her brother, Rorrey Fenty. The star had clearly booked out the venue — paparazzi pictures show the roof filled with helium balloons in celebration.
For her birthday ‘fit, Rihanna went with a simple white bodycon mini dress that featured a sash belt secured with a diamante buckle, all very ’90s Beverly Hills glamour, especially with her exposed lingerie (almost certainly Savage X Fenty). This was teamed with a pair of bejeweled stiletto heels (truly this woman is making stilettos in pregnancy a trend at this point), and diamond accessories including a seriously chunky bracelet and ring.

For hair and makeup, Rih went for metallic accents and pinned-back curls, keeping with the L.A. glam vibes, and threw on an oversized patent faux-croc jacket.

This is the first time Rihanna has stepped out publicly since her Super Bowl performance, in which where she revealed she was pregnant with her second child. She followed up her return to the stage with a major interview for British Vogue, talking candidly about her relationship and becoming a family. “We’re best friends with a baby,” she told the publication. “We have to be on the same page, but we’ve always kind of had that in our relationship. Everything changes when you have a baby but I wouldn’t say it’s done anything but made us closer.”
