Rihanna is unabashedly exploiting her baby bulge as a stunning fashion piece while still slaying pregnancy with her daring looks.
Forever ahead of the curve and bold with her eye-catching designs, Rihanna is known for her unconventional fashion sense.
However, her maternity clothes have divided admirers, with some praising her frills and calling her distinctive couture “trash” and “crass.”
The “Diamonds” singer and fashion prophet Rihanna announced earlier this year that she is having her second child with rapper A$AP Rocky.
On one of the biggest stages in the world, at the Super Bowl 2023 halftime show, she revealed her enormous baby belly.Rihanna performed a 12-minute set that included some of her biggest singles, including “Umbrella,” “B—h Better Have My Money,” and “We Found Love.”
She was dressed in a skin-tight body suit that revealed her bump, which she cradled in between sets, over a bright red, unzipped jumpsuit.
Rihanna had previously revealed that she has a surprise in store during an interview with CBS’ Nate Burleson for her Super Bowl performance. “I’m considering bringing somebody. We’ll see. I’m not sure.
The Barbadian-born musician and entrepreneur has been photographed wearing ghetto-glam maternity attire, such as cropped tops and lacy baby dolls that revealed her expanding belly to the world, ever since her Super Bowl performance.
The beauty and fashion icon, who owns the lingerie line Savage X Fenty, the cosmetics line Fenty Beauty, and the skin care line Fenty, all under the luxury fashion giant LVMH (Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton), came under fire for violating conventional maternity wear standards and for blinging up her baby bulge with chains and jewels.
Readers commented on Rihanna’s outfit, the majority of whom believe it is unfavorable, contrasting her provocative looks with the traditional ones of other famous mothers.
She is described as “motherhood trashy” by one reader. Another person commented, “Well to me one appears like that she’s glad to be pregnant and (grateful), while the other simply looks like she’s showing u how she got pregnant. This is NOT classy, it is rude and attention grabby narcissism on full display. Just saying. You all know what I was thinking when I said what I said.
One reader defended Rihanna, saying, “Could it be that they just have different styles…not one is better than the other just different. Stop pitting women against each other in a race neither chose to be in.”
Fans of Rihanna know she’s bold when it comes to her attention-getting looks, which range from flashy Swarovski crystal-studded gowns to tracksuits with stilettos. She stunned in a stunning white Valentino gown with a 16-foot train and a silk cape embroidered with white flowers at this year’s Met Gala. She attended the 2015 Met Gala wearing a gorgeous yellow dress that, according to Vogue, “will go down in history as one of the best looks the event has ever witnessed.”
Rihanna outlines her statement-making strategies with her first pregnancy in an interview with Rachel Smith of ET. “It’s a long nine to 10 months. You have to enjoy it…I’m trying to enjoy it as much as I could. And fashion is one of my favorite things, so, you know, we’re defying what it even means to be pregnant and maternal.” She continued, “It can get uncomfortable at times and so you can dress the part and pretend.”
Regarding Rihanna’s second child, not much information has been made public. Although the due date is still unknown as of May 2023, it is fair to assume the baby will be born in 2023 based on the size of her baby belly.When contrasting her first and second pregnancies, Rihanna remarked, “It’s so different from the first one…No cravings. Tons of nausea. Everything’s different, but I’m enjoying it. I feel good. I feel energetic.”
The duo has a cunning way of hiding personal information from the general public. In actuality, it wasn’t until someone acquired a copy of the birth certificate on May 10, 2023 that we learnt the name of her first son. RZA Athelston Mayers is the name of the soon-to-be big brother, who turned one on May 13, 2023. According to rumors, the rapper and producer RZA, 53, who is the boss of the American hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan, which was founded in Staten Island in 1992, is the inspiration behind the name RZA (pronounced Rizza).
Early in May, when discussing her first child, Rihanna exclaimed, “I’m in love” and said she was “obsessed and I don’t even feel guilty about it.”
