Until now, Rihanna’s maternity style has been all about crop tops and low-rise baggy jeans. While stepping out with her boyfriend (possibly fiancé, judging by the sizable diamond ring on her finger) A$AP Rocky in LA, the star positively shone in a sheer Simone Rocha babydoll dress, sneakers colored Union Air Jordan 4 SP “Guava Ice”, and a pair of Loewe Paula Ibiza sunglasses.
The floaty dress is a departure from the flashy looks she’s been rocking since announcing her pregnancy – her vintage pink Chanel coat, Dior lingerie and sparkly Coperni pieces are notable highlights. Although not officially a maternity dress, the Simone midi is the perfect piece to embrace your bump.
Many stylish moms-to-be have turned to Rocha’s feisty dresses to carry them through their pregnancy. As fans of the designer know, Rocha’s ready-to-wear lends itself well to a changing body, thanks to its indulgent silhouettes and soft, whimsical trims. If Rihanna chooses to continue her series of lightweight dresses, there’s a lot to appreciate in Rocha’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection. The black puff-sleeved coat accessorized with a pearly choker would be appropriate for a dinner party at her favorite Italian restaurant, Giorgio Baldi, while the boudoir-ready dresses with trailing ribbons would be appropriate for a special occasion.
Rihanna has a keen eye on London talent: Earlier this week she wore a mini sculpture from the Autumn/Winter 2021 collection of KNWLS, the brand run by Fashion East alum Charlotte Knowles and her boyfriend, Alexandre Arsenault .
