Rihanna brought her signature glam to the 2023 Golden Globes.

The 34-year-old R&B superstar and fashion icon attended the A-list event, held on Tuesday night in Los Angeles, as a first-time nominee. Her song Lift Me Up, which was featured in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, received a nom for Best Original Song.

She Turned Heads In An All-Black Outfit

She might not have won that night but she definitely had all eyes on her thanks to the ultra-glam all-black outfit she chose.

Vampy In Velvet

The Fenty Beauty founder’s ensemble was from Schiaparelli Haute Couture and consisted of a ruched black bustier dress and a voluminous velvet cape with dramatic sleeves. She styled her look with ankle-strap sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti and a bejeweled purse by Roger Vivier.

It Wouldn't Be Complete Without Diamonds

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Rihanna outfit without some dazzling bling. She accessorized with a Cartier diamond necklace and coordinating earrings, and finished everything off with a sculptural hairstyle and simple makeup.

She And A$AP Rocky Made A Head-Turning Entrance

RiRi opted to skip the red carpet but still made a head-turning entrance at the ceremony alongside her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, who was looking super elegant himself in a black suit.

People Were Delighted To See Her There

Inside the venue, the Love the Way You Lie hitmaker posed for photos – both solo and with Rocky – and enjoyed the ceremony while getting shoutouts from presenters. Niecy Nash-Betts, who presented the award for Best Actress (Musical or Comedy), had a fangirling moment when she said onstage, “Rihanna, I love you and I dressed up as you for Halloween. I just had to say that.”
