Paris Fashion Week is bringing out all the stars, and fostering some fantastic crossovers in the process. On Monday (Jan. 22), the Dior Haute Couture show featured a new collection from the iconic fashion house and a hilarious link-up between Rihanna and Natalie Portman.
Donning a textured all-black outfit comprised of a puffy belted jacket, a figure-hugging skirt, leather gloves and a statement cap, the “Diamonds” singer shined in the show’s front row. While a stunning Rihanna fashion moment is always expected, watching Rihanna gush over Portman was a real Fashion Week moment.
“I am f—ing fan!” RiRi raved. “You’re one of the hottest bi—es in Hollywood forever!”
The two stars ran into each other outside the show and immediately shared a tight hug, rocking back and forth as they fangirled over one another. “You do the most innocent look, and I’m like ‘Ugh!’” the “Umbrella” singer said as she twirled in excitement.
Portman, who wore a black oversize blazer over a black minidress, shared in Rihanna’s excitement, expressing her love for the nine-time Grammy winner and accepting her compliments in disbelief. “Are you kidding me? Excuse me, I’m gonna faint. I’m gonna black out!” the Oscar-winning actress said in response to Rihanna’s proclamation of fandom. “I love you and I listen to your music all the time and you’re just such a queen, thank you!”
Naturally, Rihanna asked the paps to take a picture of her and Portman, and the Black Swan actress ecstatically obliged. “Can somebody take a picture so I can remember this happened tomorrow?!” quipped the pop superstar. “I don’t get excited about anybody!” The two ladies then shared one final hug.
This crossover marked the beginning of a big week for Portman. The acclaimed actress could score her fourth career Oscar nomination for her starring role in Todd Haynes’ May December when noms are revealed Tuesday. At last year’s Oscars, RiRi earned a best original song nomination for “Lift Me Up,” her Billboard Hot 100 No. 2 hit from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack.
