Rihanna Tours Coco Chanel’s Parisian Apartment
Most of us commoners will only ever see the inside of Coco Chanel’s posh Paris apartment through photographs. But when you’re pop superstar Rihanna, you get the keys to the home of Mademoiselle herself.
While in town for her Diamonds World Tour, the singer took a private tour of the one-and-only Gabrielle Chanel’s fabulous flat at 31 Rue Cambon, which sits atop the Chanel boutique and couture salon.
“Yesterday=Most Legendary day in Paris!!!!” Rihanna wrote on Instagram, where she shared snaps of her once-in-a-lifetime look at the pad — now mostly used for press interviews and fashion shoots — that served as the backdrop for Coco’s groundbreaking fashions, from the brand’s quilted bags, to the black dress, to the double-C logo.
Decked out in Chanel designs and gems, the Grammy winner posed in all the famed photo-op spots — from the cream-carpeted curved staircase where Coco famously viewed her collections, to the suede quilted couch, to the chair from which she’d fine-tune her fashions.
