Interrupting our Critics Choice coverage with an important update: Rihanna is blonde. This our first Rihanna post of 2024, and I can’t believe it’s taken half the month to get here but we haven’t actually seen all that much of her since before the holidays and now she’s stepping out with a hair change so, yes, of course it’s breaking news!


RiRi went for dinner – where else? – at Giorgio Baldi last night, which is fitting, that our first post about her in the new year is at the place we can always find her. I find it comforting, that no matter what changes in her life – relationships, children, hair colour – she will always make time to eat at her favourite restaurant. 

As you can see, even though she’s covering some of it under a ballcap, Rihanna is a blonde mood to kick off 2024. It’s honey shade, it’s long, and it looks really, really good. 


But also, she’s in pink. A pink bodysuit (from the new Savage x Fenty Valentine’s drop?) over jeans. So is RiRi sending us Barbie vibes? If Rihanna’s voting on Oscars, does she check the Barbie box? My money would be on yes. 


In other Rihanna news, because right now her priority is actually Savage x Fenty, she’s answering questions about her love language. It’s a new video posted to the IG account this weekend and this is the Rihanna that we can always count on, no matter the colour: she will always rep her own sh-t.
