Rihanna Announces History-Making Collab With The Largest Luxury Clothing Brand In The World

Rihanna

Rihanna was absent at this year's Met Gala, and her absence did not go unnoticed. While we watched our favorite stars slay the red carpet in the name of Camp culture, this Bajan princess was cooking up a legendary master plan that none of us were expecting.


Recently it was announced that the world's largest luxury brand, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, would be embarking on a predictably lucrative entrepreneurial journey with America's favorite bad girl. In a history-making money move, Rihanna just became the first woman to create an original brand with the company as well as the first woman of color to be at ever the top of an LVMH Maison and it's a big f*cking deal. The singer wrote on Twitter:

"Big day for the culture. Thank you Mr.Arnault for believing in this little girl from the left side of an island, and for giving me the opportunity to grow with you at @LVMH."

The last house created by the billion-dollar brand was in 1987 by legendary French fashion designer, Christian Lacroix, and Rihanna being his predecessor is reflective of the reputation she's built in both the business and fashion industry. Bernard Arnault, CEO, and chairman of LVMH had this to say about the iconic businesswoman:

"Everybody knows Rihanna as a wonderful singer, but through our partnership at Fenty Beauty, I discovered a true entrepreneur, a real CEO, and a terrific leader. She naturally finds her full place within LVMH. To support Rihanna to start up the Fenty Maison, we have built a talented and multicultural team supported by the Group resources. I am proud that LVMH is leading this venture and wish it will be a great success."

Rihanna's middle name is "inclusivity," so we can always count on Rih to do it for the culture, so you know she had to make some room for people of color at the table.

Rihanna will have full creative control of the fashion house with "no artistic limits" which in translation means that it's about to be lit lit. The brand will be based in Paris and sell a luxury line of ready to wear, clothes, and accessories, including sunglasses and jewelry.

"Designing a line like this with LVMH is an incredibly special moment for us. Mr. Arnault has given me a unique opportunity to develop a fashion house in the luxury sector, with no artistic limits."

It's unclear how long this project has been in the works, but damn. Rihanna sure knows how to pull off a surprise. She continued:

"I couldn't imagine a better partner both creatively and business-wise, and I'm ready for the world to see what we have built together."

Today, the singer also released her Fenty Beauty summer collection online and in stores, so it's imperative that you hide your coins, sis, because Rihanna is coming for our wallets.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
