Fresh off of launching Fenty Beauty in Italy, Rihanna announced plans to expand her beauty brand to Saudia Arabia, starting April 18, 2018. The brand has been available at Sephora stores in Qatar, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates and Kuwait since last year.
Members of the Fenty Beauty team headed to the brands Dubai headquarters after Milan to set up the launch event though it’s not known if Rihanna will be in attendance.
As it happens, Rihanna’s beau, Hassan Jameel, is from Saudia Arabia where he and his family manage Toyoto’s distribution. Whether he helped “inspire” the brand’s expansion into the Middle East or that’s just how Sephora rolls when it expands popular brands, we can only nosily sit and speculate.
Check out Rihanna’s look from her appearance at Sephora in Milan below. She attended the event in an extremely sexy Versace strapless leather dress worn with Tom Ford chain sandals.
While in Milan, she did some shopping with her mom at a Gucci store. She wore a pink embroidered Dolce & Gabbanna skirt and jacket paired with Giuseppe Zanotti Darsey mules.
Both the Versace and D&G look are from the labels’ fall 2018 collections.
