Rihanna and Chris Brown Do the City of Lights

Barbadian beauty Rihanna and her long-unconfirmed beau Chris Brown were snapped by photographers while shopping in Paris on Thursday.

Later that evening the Chris, 19, and Ri-Ri hit up the flagship Louis Vuitton store to make a dent in their holiday shopping.

This is Brown’s third trip to the French capital this year. He’s gotta be très fluent in French at this point, non?

Pop’s reigning prince and princess are in the City of Lights through the weekend. Rihanna, 20, is scheduled to appear on the finale of TV music talent contest Star Academy.

Last month, Britney Spears performed her #1 hit “Womanizer” on France’s hit series while doing a promotional jaunt across Europe.

Do you think 2009 will be the year Rihanna and Chris finally come clean about their relationship? Or will they continue to play it coy?

Give us your thoughts on the curious couple!
