Rihanna is known for her flawless makeup, exquisite hair, and stunning looks and she didn’t disappoint when she attended the BET Awards. Photos and videos from her appearance, where she presented Mary J. Blige with the Lifetime Achievement Award, continue to go viral and now her hair stylist and personal makeup artist are weighing in on Rihanna’s glamorous look.
Yusef of NYC, Priscilla Ono, and Naphia all shared photos of Rihanna from her big event and weighed in on her hair and makeup. Of course, Rihanna wore Fenty Beauty and there is no better model for the product than the nine-time Grammy winner herself. Rihanna’s Fenty outfit drew just as much praise as her flawless face and perfectly coiffed hair.
Dressed from head to toe in black leather, Rihanna chose a wraparound, black leather jacket that doubled as a shirt with oversized sleeves and a fanny-pack belted waist. The plunging neckline showed off her jewelry. She wore black leather leggings that clung to her curves and showcased her long, lean legs.
Rihanna accessorized the outfit with gorgeous Neil Lane jewelry and she featured several layered necklaces that brought a cool vibe to the leather ensemble.
Recently showcasing box braids, Rihanna opted for a sleek, red high ponytail that revealed her beautiful face and gorgeous cat eye makeup.
You may see photos that Rihanna’s makeup artist Priscilla Ono shared of Rihanna’s finished look including a video from the BET Awards below.
Rihanna showed off the full outfit on her own Instagram account and the photos went viral. Rihanna paired the leather ensemble with a pair of Manolo Blahnik open toe shoes. You can see Rihanna modeling the look before the event in this photo that she shared below. Rihanna made it clear that she was wearing Fenty.

The official Fenty Instagram gave a bit of a tease by sharing a photo of black leather swatches as if they were teasing Rihanna’s upcoming outfit. Rihanna rocks leather like nobody’s business and it’s one of her most popular looks.
Rihanna’s hair was a hit and none other than her personal stylist Yusef Williams was credited with the look along with Naphia of Naphi’s beautiful hair. Rihanna’s hair color was a deep burgundy red colored by Micahel David.
