Stylish as ever in a white Versace Resort 2014 top and skirt (showing off rock-hard abs), Manolo Blahnik heels and silver cuffs, Rihanna did a quick whistle stop at the MAC store in Elements Mall, Hong Kong, on Sunday 15 September, 2013.
Quickly posing for photos and signing the MAC lightbox adorned with her face, Rihanna was there to promote her second RiRi Hearts MAC Line, in stores from October 3. While it is her second line for MAC, this line is the 1st one to be in stores throughout Asia.
The launch luckily coincided with her two sold out shows at Macau on the Friday and Saturday night.
The event was super VIP, as the store was small. However, this didn’t stop a throng of paparazzi and onlookers outside waiting to catch a glimpse of the Barbadian beauty.
Colourful panna cotta’s were handed out as guests anxiously awaited the Bad Girl. To pass the time (late again RiRi..she isn’t a self-anointed Good Girl Gone Bad for nothing..) guest swilled endless champagne and had make-overs done with the new MAC line. With the paps and people outside, it almost felt like us guests were the superstars, giving the event a weird voyeuristic vibe (albeit from the other side of the lens).
Barely there for 5mins, Rihanna was whisked away to attend another sponsor event, this time the decidedly less glamorous Budweiser at Magnum nightclub in Lan Kwai Fong – where she was reportedly 3 hours late.
As for the MAC line? PR speak says: “Rihanna premieres her perfect palette of fall colour – a range of decidedly daring yet classically gorgeous shades, finishes and tools, all encased in the metallic warmth of rose gold packaging.” I’m sure it will be an immediate sell-out judging by the amount of fans in Hong Kong alone!
Who runs this town now?
