A 20-year-old Rihanna shows her love for designer fashion as she shops at Fred Segal in Santa Monica in 2008.

The singer looks hot in a pixie haircut wearing a white tank top, embellished mini skirt, and black gladiator sandals. She accessorized with metal frame sunglasses, small earrings, several cuffs, and bracelets, with the standout being a tiered Coco Chanel necklace.



She is pictured with a girlfriend at the now permanently closed Fred Segal which back in the early 2000s was the place to be seen if you were a superstar.

In 2008, RiRi was off the charts when she released Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded that gave her hits like Take a Bow, Disturbia, and If I Never See Your Face Again with Maroon 5. The song Take a Bow took over Billboard charts and shattered records when it shot from #53 to #1 in just one week permanently placing her as one of the best artists of our time.

Music is not the only talent she has excelled at as she became a leader in fashion with Fenty Beauty that made her nearly a billionaire by the time she turned 31-years-old making her The World’s Richest Female Musician according to Forbes.

“Most of that comes not from music but from her partnership with LVMH, the French luxury goods giant run by billionaire Bernard Arnault. Rihanna (pronounced “Ri-ann-ah,” not “Ri-ah-nah,” as she recently clarified) and LVMH co-own the makeup brand Fenty Beauty. It launched in September 2017 at Sephora, another LVMH brand, and online at FentyBeauty.com, quickly becoming a viral success. Fenty Beauty racked up a reported $100 million in sales in its first few weeks, propelled by Rihanna‚Äôs fame and 71 million Instagram followers.”
