Rihanna‘s signature bathrobes, chokers and burgundy lipstick aren’t the only reasons why dressing up as her for Halloween is so dang fun–she has another costume accessory that takes it over the top. What is it? Her signature wine-glass-in-hand, of course!
In case you missed it, Ri Ri is known for walking out of restaurants and clubs with a glass of wine IN HAND–thus making the “Rihanna with wine glass” this year’s best zero-f$cks-given costume. Who cares about the open container laws, when you’re Rihanna? Not Rihanna!
If you like wine, fancy yourself a badass, and like to accessorize with glassware–this costume is for you. So here’s how to do it:
The wine glass:
Obviously, you’ll need a wine glass for the costume. Any old wine glass you already have at home is absolutely fine to use. I also thought this EASY, TIGER ‘Pinkies Up’ Wine Glass ($16) was fun though if you want to punch it up a bit. Up to you!
You can start with a leather halter top like the one Rihanna wore from Iris & Ink. That one is sold out, but this Raoul Leather and stretch-ponte tan ($125) is an excellent substitute. It’s a little price-y though, but you can definitely wear it long after the holiday is over.
Ri Ri topped her leather halter with a camo jacket–so if you’re going that route for the costume, you should do the same. If you already own a camo jacket, that’s gucci. If you need to buy one, I found this Milk It Vintage Oversized Camo Jacket ($57), which you can definitely go more use out of after Halloween.
Luckily, Rihanna just put out her FENTY by Puma clothing line, so you can wear any of the pieces from that to get her look. This FENTY Puma x Rihanna Terry Choker ($30) is a good option because it’s on the cheap side–and Rihanna loves a good choker.
Rihanna also loves a good pencil skirt. This FENTY Puma x Rihanna Lace-Up Pencil Skirt ($190) from her line is a good option.
If you want to get her *exact* look for the costume, you can get the Hood by Air Cokkie Ringer Tee ($190) that Ri wore during the opening medley performance of the 2016 VMAs.
Her fur slide sandals for Puma always sell out–but we found them available as of press time in white. Get them now for the costume, and sell them later on eBay: PUMA Puma x Rihanna Lead Cat Slides ($90)
Okay, last show option–you could do these Suede Anniversary Creepers ($140) in honor of her Fenty x Puma Creepers that are constantly selling out online. These you’ll DEFINITELY get good use out of after Halloween (they are the coolest).
To top off the look, you’ll need Ri’s signature lipstick. How about the exact Coloured Raine Cherry Blossom lipstick ($17) lipstick she actually wears? (Or any other red, burgundy or wine-colored lipstick you already own will do!).
