After recently being awarded Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year award, Rihanna was honored Monday night at the 69th annual Parsons School of Design benefit in New York, alongside designer Eileen Fisher and Neiman Marcus Group CEO Karen Katz.
The star not only attended the ceremony in support of the Parsons graduates, but was also acknowledged for her performance, design and support of social good. Rihanna arrived in an oversized tan pantsuit designed by Matthew Adams Dolan, a 2014 Parsons Fashion Design School graduate, who also created Rihanna’s denim ensemble for Coachella this year.
This isn’t the first time the “Work” singer stepped out wearing pieces designed by Parsons graduates: She has also been seen wearing designs by Melitta Baumeister, Snow Gao and Melody Ya Jun Lin for past occasions.
The songstress elaborated on her close relationship to Parsons, stating, “It’s such a thrill to know that a design school as prestigious as Parsons School of Design would present me with this honor. I consistently find creative and exciting designs coming from Parsons alumni, so I feel a deep connection to the school.”
