FYI: Rihanna Is in the Beauty and Styling Business Now
Still no word on ANTI/R8/the album we’ve been waiting decades for…
Since the unofficial mantra of being a member of Rihanna’s Navy is to love her no matter how long it takes for our girl to release her new album, let’s all bask in the news of Bad Gal RiRi’s latest venture: a beauty and styling agency.
The 27-year-old fashion queen and singer has launched a firm called Fr8me with managing partner Benoit Demouy. The Los Angeles-based company will assist artists in booking commercials, shoots, ad campaigns and red-carpet events, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Hair, makeup and styling play an important role in creativity,” RiRi tells THR. “I am very involved with that part of my process, so this agency was an organic thing for me to do.”
The agency is definitely RiRi heavy. The team includes Rihana’s longtime makeup artist Mylah Morales, wardrobe stylist Jason Bolden (who’s worked with Taraji P. Henson), hairstylists Patricia Morales and Morcia Hamilton.
But wait there’s more: Rihanna and Fr8me also have a photo agency called A Dog Ate My Homework.
You may now return to your regular level of anticipation for a new album that exists only in our dreams. For now.
