On Friday night, Rihanna continued to bring the stunning ensembles to Paris Fashion Week, wearing a form-fitting black gown by Saint Laurent to the second edition of the Pièces Jaunes Gala. The strappy floor-length dress had a low-cut bodice and ruched skirt that hugged her curves.
Over the dress she draped a vintage Vivienne Westwood coat in black with a dramatic fur collar and matching cuffs. She left her honey blonde hair down and straight, and wore a small silver choker around her neck.
The gala featured a host of performances, including one from Rihanna's boyfriend A$AP Rocky, who she was seen recording at moments from the audience. Also there that night were Maroon 5, J Balvin, Pharrell Williams, Stray Kids, Lisa from BLACKPINK, and Gims and Gautier Capuçon.
Earlier in the week, Rihanna sat in the front row of the Dior show, wearing another striking all-black look which included a hat and structural quilted coat with a belted waist.
On her way into the show, she encountered actress Natalie Portman, and in a sweet clip posted to X, formerly known as Twitter, the pair mutually fangirled about one another. In the video, taken by photographer Stephane Feugere, Portman gushes, “I love you.”
Rihanna simultaneously tells her, “I am a proper fan.”
“Are you kidding me?” Portman asks, seemingly shocked.
Rihanna replies, “You are one of the hottest b-tches in Hollywood forever. You have the most innocent look an I'm like ‘uhhh.’”
The Black Swan performer answers, “I'm gonna faint. I love you and I listen to your music all the time, you're just such a queen and just thank you.”
They then stopped to pose for a photo together.

On Saturday night, Rihanna had a more casual evening with A$AP Rocky, heading to Cesar restaurant with the rapper and their 18-month-old son RZA, who she carried in her arms. The rapper walked behind her with their youngest, six-month old Riot. The Fenty Beauty founder was wearing a purple hooded dress and brown faux fur coat, accessorizing with red sunglasses and a pair of strappy black heels.
