February 11: Hitting the Red Carpet
A few weeks after the announcement, they made their red carpet debut as parents-to-be at a Fenty Beauty event in Los Angeles, accidentally coordinating in grape purple and lime green: Rih wore a custom glittery look by The Attico, while Rocky wore a Big League Chew-hued Louis Vuitton letterman jacket and a matching Yankee fitted hat covered with Care Bears patches. They didn’t plan on matching, Rihanna told People at the event, saying “I didn’t know what he was wearing. I didn’t even see him! Like, he left the studio to come here.”
“That always happens with us,” she added. “We get dressed in completely separate [areas] across the house, and we leave looking coordinated somehow.”
January 31: The Reveal
The pair announced their pregnancy on Instagram—where else?—with a series of photos taken by the paparazzo Diggzy, who has captured some of Rihanna’s most reblogged street style looks in the past. The couple posed uptown in Harlem, where Rocky grew up: she, in a pink puffer from Chanel’s fall 1996 collection unbuttoned over her bare belly, and he, in baggy black patent pants and a denim Carhartt Active jacket. Come to think of it, his whole torso situation feels very dadcore.
