Rihanna rocks a festive leather belt with her tuxedo jacket for dinner


    She’s known for her outrageous sense of personal styling.

    But Rihanna seemed to be feeling more traditional on Tuesday night, when she borrowed styling tips from Santa Claus in a distinctive red leather belt.

    In the spirit of Christmas, the musician hit her favourite restaurant, Giorgio Baldi, in Santa Monica with a few festive accessories.

    Feeling festive: Rihanna got into the spirit of the season on Tuesday night as she paired her tuxedo jacket with a festive red belt for dinner at Giorgio Baldi

    With a giant silver buckle, the thick belt certainly seemed to be the size of Jolly Old Saint Nic, since Rihanna had plenty of excess length when she used it to cinch in her own tiny waist.

    Rihanna wrapped it around a smart tuxedo jacket, which featured satin lapels and an androgynous, double breasted design. 

    She also seemed to have taken inspiration from Santa in the footwear department when she completed the look with pointed patent boots that were – in this case – not so suitable for navigating the snow.

    Bajan beauty Rihanna has certainly been feeling in the mood for Christmas this week, after leaving a party she hosted in West Hollywood wearing a Santa’s hat.

    On Monday night, Rihanna was paying homage to the gift-bringer in a hat that said ‘I’ve Been Good!’ determined not to see herself on ‘The Naughty List,’ this year.

    In the spirit of her own Christmas party, Rihanna dressed up for the Fenty x Puma bash at The Nice Guy.

    All her belongings: She carried her essentials in a tiny rucksack

    Rihanna actually has been a good girl this year, most recently spending time with Prince Harry of Wales, helping to mark World Aids Day.

    The fashionista and the British royal teamed up during his tour of the Caribbean and even struck up quite a bond.

    As well as taking tests for HIV together to help raise awareness, the songstress joined the royal for a Golden Anniversary Spectacular Mega Concert at the Kensington Oval Cricket Ground.
