Last night I met Rihanna and it was everything I dreamt of and more
Bow-down to Bad Gal Ri-Ri and her Fenty Beauty collab
My journey home last night begun much like any other; I left work and jumped on a busy tube, squashed between one stranger’s armpit and someone else’s rucksack. But, rather than heading home I was enroute to the most anticipated event in the beauty calendar. The post LFW party thrown to celebrate the successful launch of Fenty Beauty Products by Rihanna in London.
My destination was Harvey Nichols; the exclusive home to the new Fenty by Rihanna range. As I rounded the corner from Knightsbridge station I spotted a queue at one of the doors, cordoned off by a rope. I quickened my pace, worried I would miss the entrace of the night’s star, Rihanna.
Once I arrived at the door, I realised this wasn’t a queue for the party, it was actually a gaggle of die-hard beauty fans all desperate to get their hands on their own piece of the new collection. Since it’s global launch in NYC on September 8th the range has launched to sell-out success and rave online reviews and it’s clear the hype surrounding the range has made it’s way across the pond to London.
After my false start, I was shepherded round the corner to a secret, side entrance where I had to manoeuvre a series of security checks, paparazzi and Ri-Ri super fans to make it to the door of the underground party venue.
Guests including Edward Enninful, Leomie Anderson, Malaika Firth and Marie Claire Future Shapers winner Sharmadean Reid MBE, sipped on champagne and cocktails and tucked into glitter donuts, candyfloss and fortune cookies. While beauty bloggers and celebrities like Chloe Lloyd, Phoebe Lettice and Patricia Bright were let loose to play with the new products, take photobooth selfies and soak up the party atmosphere.
Rihanna made an entrance in a beautiful purple tulle dress by Molly Goddard and then let loose on the dance floor with a glass of champagne in hand. Some lucky party guests even had their makeup applied by Rihanna herself (!). Draped in a dazzling necklace and some mega-watte bling rings, Ri-Ri happily chatted with fans and beauty fanatics about her range including the game changing, 40-shade foundation range.
