Rihanna’s Butt-Length Curls and Every Other Work of Hair Art at the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” Premiere — See Photos

Sound the alarms — the one and only Rihanna is back on the red carpet! The star attended the world premiere of the highly anticipated Marvel Studios Black Panther: Wakanda Forever sequel and we are so happy to see her and her effortlessly cool style once more.

RiRi, who has a new song on the movie’s soundtrack, hit the purple carpet in a sequined, strapless Rick Owens gown with a bold, modern bustle detail and undone hem paired with matching super-long gloves, all in a taupe shade that let her hair and makeup shine. To juxtapose the unique structure of the gown, Rihanna opted for full, undone curls that flowed all the way down her back, almost to her butt. The style was parted deeply to one side to casually fall over one eye as she posed, looking like a total mermaid come to life on land. (Her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, donned a jacket and pants in a similar shade for the ultimate couple-on-the-carpet moment.)

As for her makeup, the Fenty Beauty founder matched her eye shadow to her dress in a shimmery taupe and tight liner, a sculpted brow, peach blush, and lined lips with just a hint of gloss. She accessorized her look with a ladder of earrings all the way up her ear for a touch of signature edginess. The new mom was absolutely glowing in her first big appearance since giving birth and we’re hoping to see more Ri, ASAP.
