A$AP Rocky’s birthday could only mean one thing: a romantic date night with partner Rihanna. As is tradition for the stylish duo, they both showed out in the chicest of ensembles to ring in the rapper’s 34th.

It was RiRi, however, who really stunned to mark the momentous occasion. She debuted a new blonde-tinted hair ’do and tested out fashion’s trend du jour — the now ubiquitous no-pants look.

Rihanna’s No-Pants Ensemble

On Tuesday night, the couple was spotted celebrating Rocky’s birthday at New York hotspot Carbone, delighting fashion girls the world over.

For the bash, the “Disturbia” singer reached for a black tulle top cinched at the waist. The bottom half of the the frilly top, meanwhile, was gathered into a V-shape. To complete her look, she threw on a cropped bomber jacket, choosing to leave it unbuttoned.

The bottom half of her ‘fit, however, was where it got saucy. Instead of wearing actual bottoms, the “Diamonds” singer took on the pantsless style that Kendall Jenner helped popularize. Since Jenner was spotted in the look in November, everyone from BFF Hailey Bieber to recent Paris Fashion Week attendees have worn a version of the no-pants trend.

Although others reach for sheer tights, Rih went a different route: In lieu of actual bottoms, she wore pantaboots à la Kim Kardashian, also in ink black.

Plus, New Blonde Highlights

Rihanna further merchandised the look with large hoop earrings and a diamond-encrusted necklace, and reached for ’90s-style rectangular sunnies to top it off.

All the accents, however, paled in comparison to the beauty mogul’s new honey blonde highlights, which she debuted that night. Her streaks were the only pop of color in her otherwise all-black ensemble.

Honorable Mention: A$AP’s Fun ‘Fit

The birthday boy was dapper in head-to-toe Bottega Veneta. His look included a plaid blazer, gray sweatshirt, and loose jeans, which seemed simple until you caught a glimpse of the accessories.

Effectively putting the “happy” in “happy birthday,” the rapper reached for playful add-ons. Atop his head, Rocky affixed dozens of pearl barrettes in varying shapes and sizes, creating a birthday crown of sorts.

He also toted a woven bubblegum pink bag, also from Bottega Veneta. Against the all-neutral ensemble, the vibrant handbag was eye-catching in the best way.
