What would you do with $990? Pay your rent? Go on vacation? Take care of that credit card debt you racked up over the holiday? Buy a very expensive bikini? Well, if you’re a certain ganja-loving international popstar from Barbados, you don’t have to use your hard-earned coins on the latter–you can just get it for free from the designer.
Rihanna was photographed frolicking on the beaches of her native Barbados in a Swarovski crystal-embellished bikini from Charlie by Matthew Zink. Zink, who has made custom swimwear for the singer before, gifted Ms. Fenty not one but two limited-edition bikinis, (of which there only 10), one in bronze and one in black. Each glittering swim set is decorated with 2,638 Swarovski crystals.
We gotta give Ri some props. We can’t imagine romping in the Caribbean sea rocking such expensive swimwear–we’d be too worried that one of those precious crystals might fall off. But when you’re a true badgal, we guess such concerns don’t matter. Hats off to you, Robyn Fenty.
