R&B sensation Rihanna was in New York City on November 21 to launch her new album “Unapologetic” at Best Buy.
Fans had been lining up for hours to see her and the applause on her arrival was deafening. They were even more thrilled when she handed out tickets for her concert that evening to three lucky people.
At the Q&A which followed, fans continued to create an uproar as they clicked photos of her and took videos on their cell phones.
Rihanna’s outfit for the launch was a rather steep deviation from her usual avatar.
What she wore:

Usually spotted in raunchy or fitted outfits, Rihanna camouflaged her famous bod in a loose leather top with matching, calf-length pants which were also far from clingy.

Although wearing a cap, she styled her hair in curls and swept them over her shoulder with wavy fringes peeking out from underneath the headgear. The do lent an elegant feel to her ensemble. Fake eyelashes with thick liner and her patent red pout completed her look.
