ELLE's incredible highlights from the Rihanna 777 Tour...
1 - THE GOODIE-BAG MOMENT
Boarding the 777 in LA, each passenger was given a bulging bag containing Nude perfume, Rihanna-logo socks, books and t-shirts, Roc Nation headphones and a necklace with a ‘conflict-free genuine diamond’. Nice.
2 - THE CHAMPAGNE MOMENT
Half an hour into the flight to Mexico City, Rihanna appeared with gold bottles of £400-a-pop Ace Of Spades fizz and tipped out large glasses for the press gang.
That’s good in-flight service.
3 - THE HAIRCUT MOMENT
Rihanna’s hairstylist Yusef Williams revealed the short crop on the Unapologetic album cover happened on a plane to Tokyo.
‘I remembered I had these clippers so I shaved off the sides. All of her hair inspiration comes from guys. She texts me images of styles she likes at five in the morning.
We change all the time. Come up to the front on the next flight and see if she looks any different!’
4 - THE WARDROBE CRISIS MOMENT
One minute the steaming heat of Mexico, five hours later the bitter chill of Canada.
This caused riotous clothes confusion among the press corps and sparked panicked exchanges of shorts and t-shirts for scarves and fur coats.
5 - THE STAGE-CLOTHES MOMENT
There were 15 duffel bags just for Ri’s stage costumes, a different look every night.
ELLE’s favourite was at Berns Salonger nightclub, Stockholm - an oversized Adam Kimmel for Carhartt denim jacket, a white Wilford body suit and denim American Apparel shorts.
Never one to shy away from an accessory, she added black Tom Ford heels, a vintage black leather and gold encrusted Chanel belt, a Chanel nameplate chain and plastic Chanel ‘60s pop-art shades. Phew!
