Rihanna Wears Fenty x Puma During Surprise Visit to L.A. Pop Up Shop, Jams to Kendrick Lamar on the Way
Rihanna graced her Puma x Fenty two-day pop up shop with her presence yesterday (April 18). Earlier in the day, Puma tweeted the address of the LA venue hosting the collection's pop-up shop, alongside an image of the line's coveted Bow Creeper Sandal. An hour later, the fashion retailer tweeted "Yes [crown emoji] . @rihanna will be attending the #FENTYxPUMACollection shop" -- immediately sending droves of her fans to line up hours in advance.
The fashion icon streamed the event on her Instagram -- from a first-person perspective -- much to the delight of her Rihanna Navy who couldn't all attend the event. At the start of the stream, Rihanna and her team of friends bumped Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. while driving on the way to the event. Her selections included "LOVE." and "HUMBLE." before a sing-along to her feature on "LOYALTY.".
Upon arrival, Rihanna strutted in the line's bok choy-toned Jacquard Hi/Low Hem Parka dress and Aleutian blue-gray Mule heels. As fans greeted her with cheers, the star turned into a model employee (so to speak), posing for photos and signing autographs while ringing up customers' orders. She even kept a glass of champagne by her, toasting to her latest fashion accomplishments. She also requested for the DJ to pump up the volume of the music playing in the store, confessing to her phone's camera "we need a new word for 'turn up' ... I'm sick of it."
The pop up shop continues today as the last for the location.
