On Friday, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky walked through New York City in their casual date night style, which is high fashion for most other people. The beauty mogul was wearing a pair of baggy thigh-high suede boots by Y/Project that slouched around her legs as she strutted past photographers, an over-sized vintage T-shirt by RZA, and an adorable frayed black denim mini skirt by R13 that just brushed the top of the boots.
For accessories, she went vintage again with a green Gucci snakeskin bag, bangles, several chains, and thin hoop earrings. The jewelry was by Sue Gragg, Briony Raymond, and David Webb. She left her long black hair down, and wore a bright red lip, plus a pair of black sunglasses.
Rocky was sporting a purple and gold Los Angeles hat, and a white t-shirt covered in illustrated cartoon characters under a brown flannel button down. He had on wide-legged denim jeans with open knees and a pair of black and white Adidas.
The couple are showing a united front just after the case against A$AP Rocky, who is accused of being involved in a shooting in November, heated up. The alleged victim in the incident has been revealed as his high school best friend, Terell Ephron, who uses the moniker A$AP Relli, Rolling Stone reports. Ephron claims that he was invited “to an obscure location… to discuss a disagreement between the two of them” before the shooting.
Ephron sustained “minor injuries to his left hand” at the meet up via gunfire and Rocky was arrested in April for his supposed participation in the incident shortly after returning from a trip to Barbados with his girlfriend. Rihanna was pregnant at the time, but they have since welcomed their first child together, a baby boy who was born in May. He has a court date on August 17 to continue the case.
