Who’s That Chick? Rihanna Overhauls Her Wardrobe After Shocking Weight Gain
Here's how the singer is dealing with her "fluctuating body type"
Fans and critics alike have been obsessed with Rihanna’s weight since paparazzi photos of her with a curvier figure surfaced online this May. Since then, the “Love on the Brain” singer has become a frequent target for body shamers on the internet. While some embraced “thick” Rihanna, others have been vicious about the weight gain and criticized the 29-year-old for supposedly being “too fat” these days.
Like a true queen, she clapped back at haters in October by addressing her new look. She told The Cut:
“Well, I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day — the next week — I need something oversized; I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?”
She continued, “I really pay attention every day when I go into the closet about what’s working for my body that morning. I feel like that’s how everyone should go after fashion, because it’s an individual thing. And then, if you take it further, it’s like: What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?
Well, it’s then to no one’s surprise that our favorite Bad Gal even has her closets organized by her “skinny” and “fat” days.
According to a new report from Radar Online, the Fenty Beauty founder built large closets in her homes around the world to house clothing of all sizes for her ever-changing figure. Even when she’s feeling a little bloated, Rih has a killer outfit on hand for her body.
“Her weight can fluctuate by 10 pounds during any given week and that requires a massive wardrobe,” a source says. “So she’s had to have home renovations in New York and L.A. to create closets the size of most people’s homes.”
The insider adds, “Rihanna has four walk-in closets the size of enormous bedrooms, plus an entire floor in her L.A. mansion for seasonal clothing storage.”
