Rihanna x River Island: Inside Look At The Singer's London Fashion Week Show

16 February 2013 by

Miss the show? Catch up with our live feed from the Rihanna for River Island collection below...

Tonight Rihanna hit London Fashion Week and it was a colourful, print-astic explosion of all things RiRi. There were big hoops in the ears n' bows in the hair, crop tops, layers of monochrome stripes, denim dungarees and thigh high slits, topped off with MAC Ruby Woo red lips. It was urban, chic, casual, bold - so VERY Rihanna. The show was set in the Old Sorting Office and had striking cube podiums which RiRi's model navy moved between. Cara Delevingne was on the front row holding a tee given to her by Grazia Daily and models strutted to Fresh Off The Runway - some fashion trivia RiRi also performed this at the Victoria's Secret show.

Scroll below to see all our updates from the show, from the FROW to the catwalk action to Rihanna's finale appearance.

Watch Rihanna take her bow at finale:

Crop tops, block bold colour, boots and hoods - the collection was made up of simple, but striking separates

Printed trousers, crop tops and signature RiRi body chains

Beauty wise the look was tough - slicked back hair, hoops and MAC Ruby Woo lipstick

Monochrome stripes on monochrome stripes on monochrome stripes...

Models walked to Fresh off the Runway by Ms Rihanna (obvs) which you might remember she performed at the Victoria's Secret show last year

Rihanna used Spring 2013's hottest colour, bold Grazia yellow, in her collection 

Go-to Rihanna accessories - Hoops n' bows

The cubist staging for the show is one of our favourite sets at LFW so far...

You might remember that Rihanna wore the navy jumpsuit on the right back in December, which was our first look at the collection

A simple swimsuit was given the Rihanna touch with hat, gold cuff and heels. The black backpack is high up on our wishlist from the collection.

Cara is on the front row and Grazia Daily decided to congratulate her on her impressive season by giving her a little LFW gift... our Black Score tee with the slogan 'Queen Delevingne'...

Cara D gets her Rihanna on on the front row... someone looks a liiiitle bit excited. 

While we wait for the main show look at our exclusive behind the scenes pictures from the Rihanna River Island collection..

Rihanna says in her River Island video: 'I’m being very selfish, I designed every piece so I can wear it. I want it to look like you got up, got dressed walked outside and looked fierce and I think that’s what these outfits do.'

The stars are arriving at Rihanna River Island's show. Hello V V Brown...

Congrats Rihanna, you have the biggest LFW crowd of all time...

8.00 - Rihanna says in video for River Island 'I have wanted to design my own fashion line for a very long time.' 

'Designing clothes for young sassy personalities is what i wanted to do. British high street has the most fashionable kids in the UK. I feel like high end designers are designed by these kids. Why not go to the source when you want something new, fresh? That's why I went to River Island.'

7.15 - Oooo look who's on her way to her catch up with her BFF RiRi - we're hoping Cara opens the show

5.15 - We've got our tickets and we've got our Rihanna inspired outfits all planned out for her River Island show at London Fashion Week. Grazia Daily will be there tonight bringing you all the goss, looking out for RiRi and her bezzie Cara. It kicks off at 9pm (well hopefully, RiRi isn't exactly the best time keeper) and we'll be bringing you all the news straight as it happens right here. CAN. NOT. WAIT.

3.30 Rihanna was spotted leaving LAX yesterday sporting some impressive red lips, a red and white strapped beanie and layered leather. SHE'S ON HER WAY!
