On Saturday night, Rihanna was seen in New York City with her boyfriend A$AP Rocky on an evening out together at the Rolling Loud Festival afterparty at 42 d’Or. The beauty mogul was wearing a tight grey mini dress that ruched around her waist with a halter neckline. Over the dress, she wore an oversized jacket in matching grey material with black and tan design details.
Rihanna wore a pair of her signature dramatically high leather boots in black, the tops reaching all the way to her thighs. For jewelry, she wore some of her diamonds, including a necklace and large earrings. For makeup, she had one shimmering eye shadow and dark lipstick. Her hair was up in a long ponytail, with her newish bangs swept to the side.
She and A$AP were holding hands, giggling together, and he leaned over to whisper in her ear in front of photographers. The rapper was wearing jeans, a black Yankees hat, and a long-sleeved white t-shirt printed with large Gummie Bear graphics in green, pink, and yellow.
The new parents have not been out much since the birth of their first child, a baby boy, in May of this year, but they have stepped out for a few select events. An insider told People soon after the delivery, “Their baby boy is healthy, and Rihanna is just in awe of him…Rihanna barely leaves his side. She is a fantastic mom.”
The musical artist was recently seen coming in and out of the studio in Los Angeles, leading to rumors that she might finally deliver on longstanding promises of a new album. It has been six years since her last album ANTI was released. But, A$AP Rocky was also present, so the studio sessions could have easily been production work on the rapper’s next album. Time will tell who is releasing new music first.
