Dinner attire doesn’t get rather more flashy than Rihanna’s blinding neon yellow set. The brand new mom was photographed out at Nobu in downtown Latest York City, pairing a daring red lip and her recent bangs with a striking yellow Balenciaga set. She accessorized with black sunglasses, as you do when you need to avoid the paparazzi’s camera flashes, and your outfit is as vibrant as clothes get.
Rihanna has yet to offer an interview since welcoming her son along with her boyfriend A$AP Rocky in May, but she did talk in April in regards to the impact she imagines her child will her on her. “[I know] they’re going to show me greater than I could ever teach them,” she said. “And I would like them to go for it. I would like to see who they’re on the planet, who they change into. Because I’m just here to maintain them on the rails—a passenger as much as the motive force.”
She said that she and Rocky didn’t intend to have a gender reveal party or anything. “Once we’re able to tell the world, we’ll just tell them,” she said.
She added that she felt emboldened to say yes to as much as possible during her pregnancy. “I feel I even say yes to more now because I do know it’ll be different on the opposite side of this,” she said. “At first I expected some magical change, but really I remain who I’m. Not one of the dials are turned down.”
