Whatever Rihanna touches instantly turns to gold—like heels and sweatpants, for example. If you saw your girlfriend heading out in such a look (or with a soccer ball-shaped purse), you’d probably slowly guide her back inside and ask if she’s doing okay. But, when Rihanna does it, somehow it seems like it's just about the best idea ever.
The music superstar-turned-Fenty CEO was part of the crowds at the UEFA Champions League soccer game in Turin, Italy earlier this week, where she showcased the only fashion choice that makes any real sense. Along with an oversized tan leather aviator jacket and a co-ordinated cosy hoodie, RiRi rocked a Louis Vuitton soccer ball-shaped purse. Hey, we all have one, right?
Rihanna must have dug deep in the LV archives for this one. The bag was originally created back in the 90’s to celebrate the kick off of the 1998 World Cup, and quickly became a popular collector’s item. It proved so popular at the time that Fifa later invited the designer brand to create official licensed product collections for the tournaments as a result.
Not only does the bag come with the signature LV monogram pattern and a handy leather shoulder strap, it’s also actually inflatable, and comes with a handy tip for blowing extra air inside to boost the shape like a real soccer ball. The only catch is that this one is worth several thousand dollars so, probably best not to do that.
I’m starting to think that Celebrity Bag of the Week should be a recurring feature. This one versus Lizzo’s teeny tiny Valentiono bag? A poll I would vote in tbh.
