Rihanna’s New Career Move Will Majorly Surprise You
Rihanna is a certified badass and musical sensation, but she’s recently added a new gig to her undoubtedly killer resume: sock designer.
That’s right, the BBHMM singer debuted a line of socks she designed with Stance Socks called the Murder Rih Wrote line (love a good pun). She’s also got a snazzy title at the company — contributing Creative Director, punk + poet. Seems fitting for everyone’s fave edgy songstress.
@BadGalRiRi’s 22.5M Instagram followers got a peek at her Rihanna x Stance line and the photos are sultry, slightly dark and gritty — everything we know + love about Rihanna. The styles are full of black, white and grey colors with pops of bright red throughout, which reminds us of MAC’s cult classic, Rihanna inspired lipstick, RiRi Woo.
Rihanna designed two limited edition, individually-numbered styles: one longer, over-the-knee style and one more classic crew sock. She claimed her muse for this line was horror movie poster art, which is unexpected (horror movie poster art + socks = whaaa?) but still has that funky/chic style that could only be the result of some sort of genius idea from Rih’s mind.
These are obviously not your average socks, but nothing Rihanna does is ever average (Proof: a casual day at the beach, A 1-year-old’s birthday party.). You’ll have to move fast if you want to snag a pair, there were just 1,500 socks created.
Socks. Rihanna. What’s next?!
