Rihanna performed at the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore on Wednesday evening (April 24).

This show had been postponed in the beginning of the Diamonds World Tour due to Rihanna being ill. Baltimore Sun writes that the rescheduled performance appeared to have little effect on her screaming fans.

“Rihanna not only kept up with her phenomenal backup dancers, she appeared to be equally as capable as them of landing a gig on any major concert tour” the reviewer John Williams from Baltimore Sun comments.

Refinery29 recently interviewed the man behind Rihanna’s style, designer Mel Ottenberg.

How did you start working with Rihanna?

“We had both worked with the same people, and I got hired to do a big performance with her. After that, she asked me to work for her. That was, oh, two years ago.”

.
In the last “x” amount of years, she’s become, as Riccardo Tisci said, “the face of a generation.” How much input does she have in creating her look? How’s the creative process between you two?

“We definitely have some back-and-forth moments, but she’s in control of her image. It’s very collaborative. It’s a different process for everything, but quite often there’s a creative [process] for a performance or video, and I have to figure out what the looks will be.

“I show her different ideas, and we talk about it. Sometimes, figuring out what it’ll look like has already been done, and other times, it’s more spontaneous and collaborative.”

.
What kind of input did you have with her current tour costumes? There is a lot of looks made by the best designers in the world.

“I worked very closely on every design aspect and every detail of the tour clothing for her, for her dancers, for her band, you know, everything. I worked really closely with all of the designers on the custom stuff, which was really fun.”
