Rihanna wore the Maximilian skirt suit of dreams for day 2 of her Barbados tour and we’re obsessed

Rihanna, the newly anointed National Hero of Barbados, took to the stage in the white two-piece of dreams. 

Fittingly for her newly christened National Hero of Barbados title, Rihanna proved that her fashion too is as deserving of praise as … well, herself.

Attending the National Honours Ceremony and Independence Day parade today in Barbados, the multi-hyphenate sported the most stand-out, yet powerfully understated, cashmere tailored skirt suit by burgeoning London label Maximilian.

In short, Riri understood the assignment. Here’s a woman that knows that clothes telegraph meaning: after wearing a copper-coloured Bottega Veneta slip dress as she became the 11th person to be bequeathed the National Hero of Barbados title last night, for today’s ceremony, Ri wanted to fly under the radar and let her home country’s new-found independence shine bright.

This isn’t the first time Rihanna’s worn Maximilian. In recent weeks, the Fenty Beauty founder has sported a string of the style czar’s looks, most notably a head-to-toe scarlet ensemble, which she wore for date night with A$AP Rocky.

Not only has she been an official ambassador for culture and youth in the country since 2018, but Rihanna is only the second woman to have ever received the title of National Hero, second to religious leader Sarah Ann Gill.
