Rihanna sizes up the eggplant: Singer proves she’s not too posh to push during supermarket trip

Rihanna cut an unlikely figure as she pushed her own shopping cart during a trip to her local Whole Foods in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighbourhood on Sunday. 

The billionaire hitmaker, 33, flashed her bra in a plunging black jacket which she teamed with ripped Gucci jeans and plenty of jewellery as she eyed up some of the eggplants on sale.

Luckily for Rihanna, who was declared a billionaire earlier this month, she can afford the prices in the high-end supermarket, and the star quickly filled up her trolley with goods before heading to the checkout.

Rihanna certainly looked like a member of the ultra-wealthy with strands of thick pearls and gold jewelry draped from her throat for the otherwise-casual outing.

The star was seen perusing some of the eggplants on sale in the vegetable section while pushing her trolley up and down the aisles.

After browsing the vegetables and picking up a selection of produce, Rihanna also chose a box of pastries before heading to the checkout area.

Rihanna put on a busty display in the revealing top, which she wore under her black jacket, which featured thick gold buttons. 

She dressed down the rest of her ensemble with a set of high-waisted acid-wash Gucci jeans with blown-out knees and other shredded patches.

The 5ft8in Work singer wore a rare black-and-gold striped Chanel no. 5 belt with a thick dangling gold pendant.

Oh to be shopping in the supermarket in Chanel like Rihanna.

We just love her! The billionaire showed she is still the bad girl RiRi from the block if you will, as she paired a classic chic Chanel blazer with a sporty New Era cap and a full trolley in tow.

You can manifest that splurge and go loco for Coco (right). It is however more than likely that like us, as a mere mortal you do not have Rihanna’s bad-ass budget of billions.

We have therefore found you some dreamy dupes to still get the look, including a bargain from SHEIN. Whichever you choose, you will look Chanel-ella under your umbrella this season.

She donned the ultimate sports luxe lewk by adding a sportswear cap to contrast with the boujee boucle blazer. We love this bang on trend Bottega green, or in this case Ralph Lauren one which matched the apples in her shopping cart. Steal her style (below).

Hats off to you!

Last week, the beauty mogul was officially proclaimed a billionaire. Forbes reported that Rihanna’s net worth was a staggering $1.7 billion.    

At the end of July, Diamonds singer promoted her latest business venture as she teased the imminent launch of her highly-anticipated fragrance.   

In March, the superstar filed a trademark for a line of haircare products and tools, ranging from shampoo to hair glitter, under the name of Fenty Hair. 

Her tentative business venture, which she has not confirmed, comes as she recently hit the brakes on her Fenty fashion line, which was launched in May 2019.

Earlier this year, LVMH said in a statement that the brand, based in Paris, would be ‘put on hold’ pending better conditions – a rare setback for the luxury group, which has weathered the COVID-19 pandemic better than most rivals. 

Rihanna – named the richest female musician in the world in 2019 – is said to be ‘sad’ at the decision, but her popular Savage X Fenty lingerie line, cosmetics lines Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin are set to continue.   

How Rihanna became a billionaire:

Rihanna is now worth $1.7 billion, according to Forbes.

The majority of her fortune – an estimated $1.4 billion – comes from the value of Fenty Beauty, the brand she now owns 50 per cent of.

Much of the rest of her wealth comes from her successful lingerie company Savage x Fenty which is worth an estimated $270 million.

Her earnings from her career as a chart-topping musician and actress make up the rest. 

Available online and at Sephora stores, Fenty Beauty products were successful from the get go. 

By 2018, its first full calendar year, the makeup line was bringing in more than $550 million in annual revenues. 

This overtook revenues from brands like Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics, Kim Kardashian West’s KKW Beauty and Jessica Alba’s Honest Co.

Her underwear brand generates about $150million in revenue, The New York Times reported in December last year – but was not at that time profitable. 

Fenty Skin had sales of $30million in under four months on its e-store, WWD reports. 

Fenty Beauty reportedly generated $570million in revenue in 2018, according to Forbes.

The Diamonds singer first put out her makeup line three years ago at Sephora, racking up sales eclipsing $100million over the course of its first few weeks.  

By contrast, when asked about Fenty last October, LVMH’s finance chief Jean-Jacques Guiony called it ‘a work in progress’. 

He added: ‘We are still in a launching phase, and we have to figure out exactly what is the right offer. It’s not something that is easy.’ 

Fenty fashion’s Instagram account has 1 million followers; Savage x Fenty by Rihanna has 4 million and Fenty Beauty by Rihanna 10.6 million. Fenty Skin has 852,000 followers. 

Fenty – named after the Umbrella hitmaker’s full name, Robyn Rihanna Fenty – was meant to build on the singer’s joint cosmetics venture with LVMH, with a full range of clothing, shoes and accessories.
