This year’s Parsons School of Design Benefit has a high-wattage star attached: none other than Bad Gal RiRi herself. Rihanna will be honored — alongside Eileen Fisher and Neiman Marcus — at the school’s 69th annual benefit, taking place on May 22 at Pier 60.

“Parsons is proud to present Rihanna with this honor, as she has inspired millions through her powerful music and distinct style,” said Joel Towers, the school’s executive dean, in a statement. “She has championed our recent alumni on a number of occasions by wearing their designs. She is also creating important philanthropic programs, which support communities by fostering effective education, health, and emergency response programs around the world through her Clara Lionel Foundation.”

“It’s such a thrill to know that a design school as prestigious as Parsons School of Design would present me with this honor,” Rihanna said in the statement. “I consistently find creative and exciting designs coming from Parsons alumni, so I feel a deep connection to the school.” (She’s worn pieces by several recent grads, including Matthew Adams Dolan and Melody Ya Jun Lin.) “But I am especially grateful that Parsons would recognize me for the work I’ve done in regards to philanthropy.”

It’s not the only laurel she’s gotten recently for her charity work: Harvard named her its Humanitarian of the Year last month, an award she accepted with an immortal ponytail flick.

Rihanna’s past showings for the PUMA saw a haunted forest meets hall of mirrors, complete with goth-ified Hadids, for her debut in New York, and last season she featured modern day Marie Antoinettes. For Fall 2017, Rihanna upped the ante, (the Anti, if you prefer), as she took over Paris’ Richelieu-Louvois Library for a show that read equal parts runway (models walked top of long desks, rather than the traditional catwalk) and detention—except you actually wanted to be here. Here, in a video premiering exclusively on W, Rihanna explains the inspiration for the show.

“It’s a huge library, and I couldn’t think of anywhere better for the theme of this collection: back to school,” the singer explains in the two minute clip. “All the cliques, all the lunch tables, all the different personalities and attitudes and looks and styles and energies. I’m really excited about it.”

The video also provides a backstage look at the so-called Fenty Class of 2017, which is filled with the season’s most buzzed about models. Appearing in the clip are Joan Smalls, Slick Woods, Grace Elizabeth, Stella Maxwell, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Dilone, all of whom appear both on the runway, as well as just before, receiving final touch ups from the designer.

Also making an appearance? None other than Cara Delevingne, a Rihanna bestie and upcoming co-star: the two will also appear on-screen together, alongside Dane DeHaan, in this summer’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. The model-turned-actress is seen running backstage post-show as one of the many clamoring to give their congratulations.

Rihanna went live on Instagram for 45 minutes during the premiere of her Bates Motel episode last night (March 20th). She commented her own acting in the show and interacted with fans by answering questions.

Rihanna plays a Marion Crane who is a modern version of the character, one who fits perfectly, and specifically, into Norman Bates’s ever more rapid descent into madness — and one who was customized for Rihanna’s casting.

“I think the fun thing about television is that you’re in the tailoring business,” showrunner Carlton Cuse says. “If you’re doing your job well, you’re writing your show to fit the person that you’ve cast. We knew we wanted to do Marion Crane; we just didn’t want to do a carbon copy of Janet Leigh. We were thinking a lot about who we could get, and then the Rihanna opportunity popped up, and it was like, ‘Oh, this is the perfect solution.’ She has such a different vibe and is so contemporary and so strong and so engaging. Once we knew it was Rihanna, we executed the script with her in mind.”

Tune-in at 10 ET/PT for Rihanna’s second appearance as Marion Crane on March 27.

Rihanna’s “Love on the Brain” has reached the top five on Billboard Hot 100, becoming her 22nd top five hit! “Love on the Brain” bumps 6-5 on the Hot 100, hitting a new peak. The song is Rihanna’s 22nd top five hit, breaking her out of a fifth-place tie with Elvis Presley (who tallied 21 top fives after the Hot 100’s 1958 inception; his career predates the Hot 100, as he first hit Billboard charts in 1956). The only artists with more top five Hot 100 hits than Rihanna:

The Beatles (29)
Madonna (28)
Mariah Carey (26)
Janet Jackson (24)
Rihanna (22)

Airplay continues to drive the ballad most heavily, as it keeps at No. 3 on Radio Songs (107 million, essentially even week-over-week).

Rihanna unveiled her third FENTY x PUMA collection on Monday evening at Paris Fashion week (March 6th). The theme for her Autumn-Winter 2017-2018 ready-to-wear collection was back-to-school “Fenty University” and was held at the National Library of France.

Her Autumn-Winter 2017-2018 ready-to-wear collection debuted in a “Fenty University” themed show, set at the National Library of France where study tables functioned as runways. Fenty X Puma released a teaser of the show on Sunday, where the sentence “I will not be late” appeared repeatedly followed by a “detention card” detailing the time, date, and place of the show

For the first time ever Rihanna went live on instagram during the fashion show, streaming live from backstage and making final adjustments to the models.

PAPER MAGAZINE – It’s been almost ten years since Rihanna first graced our cover back in August 2007. It was right when she’d released her explosive third album Good Girl Gone Bad featuring the smash single “Umbrella.” Back then, just like her album’s title implies, Rihanna was at a turning point in her career, starting to break out of the glossy, pop princess mold and find her voice and her unique sense of style. “[Good Girl Gone Bad] really represents my liberation,” she told our writer Bevy Smith at the time.

In the decade since, she’s certainly found that freedom. She’s dropped five more albums, including last year’s hit Anti; was named CFDA’s Fashion Icon of the Year in 2014 (and accepted the award in that unforgettable, crystal-studded see-through Adam Selman gown); designed two Fenty Puma collections with the athletic brand (and will debut her third in Paris on March 6th); received the MTV Video Vanguard Award last August; and even traveled to Cambridge, MA, earlier this week to accept Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year Award. And, amidst all this, what’s nearly as remarkable as her creative and professional accomplishments is the fact that she’s remained the cool, DGAF chick who will bring a bedazzled flask to the Grammys and often returns home to Barbados to don a bejeweled bikini and feathered headdress for carnival.

Now, the woman who can do it all is lending her talents to Hollywood; she’s part of the all-female Ocean’s Eight cast, starring alongside acting heavyweights like Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway. For our spring #BreakTheRules cover, our team took inspiration from her budding acting career and chameleon-like powers of transformation to cast her as a high fashion clerk in a bodega of the future. “We thought it would be interesting to put a superstar like Rih in such an everyday surrounding,” says Shannon Stokes, who styled our shoot alongside Farren Fucci. “And Farren added the ‘future’ angle to give it a twist, so it became a challenge to envision what a girl who worked there might look like,” he added.
