Rihanna hit the red carpet at a Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin celebration on February 11 in Los Angeles.
The singer was glowing as she rocked a backless green chain top which showed off her baby bump. She completed the look with a purple and silver pair of low-rise pants made of the same material.
She wore her hair long and straight, tucked behind one ear to show off her purple drop earrings.
At the event, Rihanna spoke to People about pregnancy fashion. She said, “I like it. I’m enjoying it. I’m enjoying not having to worry about covering up my tummy. If I feel a little chubby, it’s like, whatever! It’s a baby!”
Rihanna also explained that fashion helps to improve her mood these days. She stated, “Right now, being pregnant, some days you just feel like, ‘Ugh, I just want to lay here on this couch all day.’ But when you put on a little face and a little lipstick, you transform.”
ASAP Rocky was also looking stylish at the event. He opted for a purple baseball jacket and tote bag.

Rihanna and ASAP Rocky relationship
Rihanna and ASAP Rocky have had a long history.
The pair collaborated on a remix of her song, Cockiness (Love it) way back in 2012. ASAP then performed as her opening act on her Diamonds World Tour.
The pair maintain their friendship for years, even as Rihanna dated other people.
Then, in December 2019, they walked the red carpet together at the British Fashion Awards.
Finally, at the beginning of 2020, after Rihanna’s breakup from Hassan Jameel, rumors begin to swirl that she and ASAP Rocky are an item.
By the end of 2020, things proved to be getting serious, as Rihanna took ASAP Rocky to Barbados to meet her family.
In May 2021, ASAP Rocky made it clear that the two are serious about each other during an interview for GQ.
