A recent report from the New York Times Styles suggests that Rihanna’s very noticeable absence from the Met Gala was caused by Rihanna being too busy securing bags.
The report from the Times says that Louis Vuitton will partner with Rihanna’s and her Fenty brand to create a new luxury Maison.
Rihanna will reportedly be behind the creative direction of the new luxury house, making her the first woman and WOC to create a brand under the prestigious LVMH name.
According to NYT Styles, Rihanna’s Fenty brand will also be the first new house created under the LVMH umbrella since the late 1980s.

thank you Mr.Arnault for believing in this little girl from the left side of an island, and for giving me the opportunity to grow with you at @LVMH https://t.co/6ToY8MkDQB pic.twitter.com/Q9eF35576T
Rihanna’s growth has been amazing to witness. Who would’ve known that this little island girl from Barbados would someday ascend to absolute mogul status in the beauty and high fashion industries?
