Rihanna and ASAP Rocky Prove They Are the World’s Chicest Couple

Since announcing their relationship back in November of 2020, Rihanna and ASAP Rocky have kept their burgeoning romance under the radar. Last night, however, the couple enjoyed a rare date night in New York City that offered a glimpse at how they sync up their style. Spotted out at Barcade, the popular bar/arcade in Chelsea, they coordinated their color schemes. A true vintage enthusiast, Rihanna unearthed a petal pink slip dress from John Galliano’s spring/summer 2002 collection for Christian Dior. Then, she added on one of Emma Brewin’s fur bucket hats, Tom Ford’s python padlock heels, and a retro beaded Fendi baguette to keep with her pastel theme.

Not to be outdone, Rocky pulled out a few key pieces from the fall 2020 menswear collections. A maroon sweater vest from Raf Simons’s futurism-focused collection would have been chic all on its own. Paired with Rick Owens’ shiny black pants and boots, plus a leather bomber jacket from Alyx, it was a statement-making outfit.

Side by side, their warm tones of blush and berry made for a beautiful visual, but their synchronized outfits were about more than color. Later in the evening, after a much-publicized moment where a nightclub bouncer at another venue failed to recognize the pair and asked to see their IDs, Rocky and Rihanna gave the camera a true couples fashion moment as they exited the venue. Arm in arm, with Rihanna wearing Rocky’s oversized bomber on top of her slip dress, they headed home in style.
