Rihanna is back, baby! Her new music (in six years!) is set to debut tomorrow (Oct. 28) and she helped drum up even more hype with her appearance at the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever red carpet. On Wednesday, the singer-turned-beauty and lingerie mogul attended the premiere of Marvel’s new sequel. Her new song will appear on the film’s soundtrack.
Stepping out at Hollywood’s Dolby Theater, the Savage x Fenty founder adorned a sequined taupe strapless Rick Owens dress from the designer’s Fall/Winter 2022 ready-to-wear collection. The futuristic creation featured draped gathering at the waist and denim accents that created a corset-style silhouette that extended to the skirt, which had a circle train.
Rihanna teamed her look with opera gloves, coordinating Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and swirling diamond ear cuff from French jewelry brand Reza.
The “Diamonds” singer styled her raven hair in glamorous side-swept waves and sported a warm-toned beauty look, courtesy Fenty Beauty products, of course.
She attended the event with her longtime partner and the father of her 5-month-old baby, A$AP Rocky. The rapper matched Rihanna in an oversized taupe cargo jacket, a black mock-neck top, black slacks, and a coordinating cargo skirt that extended into a train.
Rihanna’s new track, “Lift Me Up,” is the movie’s lead single of the original soundtrack and pays homage to the late, great star of the debut Black Panther film, Chadwick Boseman. The song was reportedly written by Tems, Ludwig Göransson, Rihanna and director Ryan Coogler.
The song will be released Oct. 28, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will premiere in theaters on Nov. 11.
