Barbados native Rihanna received the 2019 Urban Luxe award for her Fenty casual wear.

What We Know:

  • On Monday, December 2, actress/singer Rihanna showed up to the red carpet for the 2019 Fashion Awards. The 31-year-old definitely received her award in style. She rocked beautiful, fresh cornrows and wore a satin mint green mini dress from her Fenty line with a matching shawl, gloves, and heels.
  • According to Essence, this specific award was created to “honor contemporary labels that elevate the concept of casual”. In 2018, Off-White‘s Virgil Abloh was the winner of this very special and distinguished award.
  • Legendary pop singer and fashion icon Janet Jackson, who also happens to be one of Rihanna’s musical inspirations, presented the award to her. As Rihanna walked to the stage to accept her award, she was as radiant as ever showing nothing but smiles.
  • The “Kiss It Better” songstress officially added fashion designer to her resume when she launched her luxury label, Fenty, this past summer. Along with her make-up line, Fenty Beauty that made its debut in 2017, as well as, her lingerie line, Fenty x Savage, Rihanna is slowly but surely becoming an icon in the music and the fashion industry.

Congratulations to Rihanna and her amazing brand, Fenty!
