Rihanna\\\'s Ballgown/Trainers Combo Is All We\\\'ll Be Wearing This Winter

Rihanna's Ballgown/Trainers Combo Is All We'll Be Wearing This Winter

The Debrief: Redefining smart/casual, one Instagram post at a time...

Rihanna is 100% our smart casual icon for winter after posing in a corridor wearing a blue gown by British designer Molly Goddard, with white trainers and sunglasses. 

The singer let everyone know that this look is nothing out of the ordinary for her by adding the captions ‘casual’ and ‘tuesdays’ to her Instagram posts.

The dress was adapted from Goddard’s Rio dress just for Rihanna, but the original version has turned heads many times before. 

The Rio dress was part of Goddard’s AW17 collection.

US cellist and singer Kelsey Lu.

Goddard posted Rihanna’s pictures on her own Instagram page, with lots of blue hearts, and we had a sneaky feeling she would approve of Rih’s styling, when we asked Molly for her three secrets of party dressing without looking too prissy way back in 2014, she suggested ‘something you can dance in, flat shoes, and no handbag’.

Check, check and check.

This is not the first time Rihanna has worn something from the designer, back in September she picked a shorter lilac Goddard dress for her trip to Harvey Nichols for the UK launch of her makeup brand Fenty Beauty. 



Beautiful @badgalriri ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

People understandably lost all sense when the pictures were posted online, some are still amazed by her power to change the fashion game with each new look.
