Lucky us! @VeraWangGang scored last minute tickets to see Rihanna in concert at the Izod Center last Thursday, and the diva did not disappoint! She commanded the stage with her signature style and fiery red hair, getting the crowd on their feet with new singles Man Down and Cheers, as well as old favorites Disturbia, Rude Boy and Please Don’t Stop The Music. We surely didn’t that night!
As the show wound down, many people started making their way to the exits to avoid the inevitable post-concert rush, but we sat tight, knowing that her encore was sure to rock…and we were right! With music blaring, a familiar face emerged…Jay-Z! Their chemistry was electric as they performed Run This Town and Umbrella (our personal fave!), which got the whole crowd dancing on their seats.
To honor her first Vogue cover (April 2011), the magazine compiled some of her best looks. We will always remember one of our top Rihanna moments, when she and Vera attended the DKMS’ 4th Annual Gala at Cipriani on 42nd Street.
