Rihanna's Bath Leisure 'Vogue' Paris Cover Makes Wearing Towels & Robes Look Trendy
Rihanna can make anything look good. And that's facts.
Her style files include a giant cupcake dress for the Grammys, a see-through Swarovski crystals grown that put her goodies on display, and a sculptural, floral cut-out dress that was like nothing we've ever seen before.
Being quite the fashion icon, Rihanna's "bath leisure" style on Vogue Paris' December cover has the pop star posing in post-shower attire like it's no big deal. Because if there's one thing Badgalriri does well, it's rocking the hell out of bizarre pieces like they're a casual T-shirt and jeans.
Clad in pale yellow fur and a printed bath towel from Emilio Pucci's spring 2018 collection, Rihanna stares down the camera in her newest photo op. She joins the latest string of celebs to hit the streets in terry cloth. Earlier in November, Rita Ora sported a robe and towel at the MTV Europe Music Awards. South Korean singer CL also decked out in her bathrobe for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, as highlighted by The Cut.
But you know a trend is really a hit when the queen of fashion forward slayage hops on the bandwagon. Leave it to RiRi to make bathwear a major style statement.
It's Rihanna at her usual — being chic AF, casually forcing everyone to envy her style, whether she intended to make bath leisure a thing or not. She never fails to be so on point, even in the most unusual attire.
Throwing on a pair of Pucci shades in more stills for the Vogue photoshoot, the singer was sitting pretty in a poofy, chiffon dress that had all the makings of a loofah. It seems strange for us mere mortals, yet it works for Rih, as do all things the fashionista wears.
This is bath leisure at its best. So naturally, the Twitterverse was all talks about Rihanna's style choices.

All hail the style queen!
It goes without saying that bath leisure will pop up more, now that Rihanna has given plenty of style inspiration. Rocking the trend à la Vogue's latest cover star requires getting creative with terry cloth and robe-esque fashions.
Here's some ways to rock the style that are slightly more wearable.
This cozy shawl is practically a robe turned cardigan. You can even fold it up into its own pocket to convert it into a plush pillow for the ultimate bath leisure travel essential.
If you want to go full on Badgalriri, you'll need to convert a bath towel into a hair accessory. A colorful, patterned style will give your ensemble plenty of flair.
No worries if you can't commit to rocking real deal terry cloth. A chiffon, fur-trim robe paired over a mini dress does the trend justice.
A satin cardigan works just as well, too. This fur-trim version is a wearable nod to bathwear.
Paired with strappy heels, this lace-back kimono could do the trend with added sex appeal.
A robe turned blazer takes the subtle approach, however. It's still very much a part of the bath leisure trend, but a material like crushed velvet dresses it up.
Once again, Rihanna has proven why she's a game changer. If she can look fab in a bath towel, there's nothing she can't wear to perfection.
