Rihanna is a fashion influencer. This is an indisputable fact, even when Rihanna wears PJs while going out and as as real clothes. Designer Tom Ford said her now-defunct Instagram feed carried more weight than fashion editorial, pretty much suggesting that Rihanna influences fashion every time she gets dressed (or undressed.) Rihanna is a fashion rebel, and that daredevil-like quality earned her her CFDA award. One of the ways the singer shows off her "Do whatever I want" style is when she wears pajamas at major events, which happens like... every other day. Here are six times RiRi donned PJs when going out — and made it work.
Rihanna Wears PJs To NYFW
While front and center at NYFW in 2014, Rihanna donned a cream-colored pantsuit that had a plunging neckline. Overall, the ensemble was loose-fitting and flowy, like cozy, unrestrictive PJs. Oh, and hey Bono.
Rihanna Wears PJs To Film Premiere
For the Japanese premiere of her film Battleship in 2012, RiRi wore comfy, baby blue print PJs with pockets. The film wasn't a huge hit, but RiRi’s ensemble was.
Rihanna Wears A Robe to 2014 MTV Movie Awards
Robes and dressing gowns are sleepwear, too! Rihanna was draped in a long, pretty pink robe, that was totally Old Hollywood glam, at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. It was sexy, silky, and slinky sleepwear, enhanced by accessories.
Rihanna Wears PJ Set to Club Opening
To celebrate the opening of her mentor Jay Z’s 40/40 club at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Rihanna didn’t do hipster chic. Instead, she rocked a champagne-hued PJ set from Acne. She dressed it up with the sometimes signature pixie cut, Manolos, and blood red lips, but she could have easily slept in her ensemble after a quick face wash.
Rihanna Wears PJ-Like Robe While Performing
While performing at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2012, RiRi wore a lacy robe over intimates. If she ditched the shirt tied around her waist, this would certainly look more like the bedroom-wear it is.
Rihanna Wears A Pantsuit That Looks Like Prison-Stripe PJs
This vertically striped pantsuit had a prison-issue vibe, but it was so baggy and roomy that it could have functioned as PJs, as well. Rihanna pumped the look up with the glasses, blazer, shades, and crimson lips, but strip it down and it’s totally jammies in disguise.
