Rihanna Explores & Inspires Envy at the House of Chanel

By  June 06, 2013

31 Rue Cambon is getting a lot of love these days! After a special shoot with Karl Lagerfeld and Victoria Beckham back in October, Rihanna is the latest celeb to pick up the coveted keys to Coco Chanel’s abode.

The “Stay” songstress incited a huge wave of jealousy from fans and fashionistas alike as she posted her excitement about her field trip. “Most legendary day in Paris!” she tweeted before Chanel’s designer of costume jewelry and accessories Laetitia Crahay gave her a tour. After that she chronicled the visit with a series of Instagram pictures, including one of her seated on the legendary staircase and another replicating the iconic image of Chanel reclining on her white couch.

She didn’t walk away empty handed. Riri posed with a friend and a pile of Chanel shopping bags after her adventure, adding to the rumors the Unapologetic singer might be an upcoming face for the brand. She initially sparked the rumors in November when she was spotted several times rocking a pair of round Chanel sunglasses, including on the glittering catwalk of the Victoria Secret Fashion Show. Since then, she’s regularly seen #CCertified on and off the red carpet.

Though the brand has denied the rumor, all of her antics can’t just be wishful thinking. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for her while she bides her time.
