FashTravels at the Rihanna for River Island 2013: Launch party at DSRKT

The latest celeb/high street collaborative collection, Rihanna for River Island, is now available to shop online. And the launch was that of fittingly superstar proportions.

After a fan-filled opening at the Oxford street store, where Ri-Ri donned the thigh high split dress from her collection, the diamond singer headed to the after party at London hotspot, DSTRKT, where we were all waiting. And waiting…

The neon yellow dress, tie side tops, striped shorts, parka style coat, eagle detail backpack, thigh high split dress, baseball jacket (although it’s a bit pricey at £120)

Not so convinced on the double denim jeans, hot pants and crop tops, but only because I know I couldn’t pull them off. Good on Rihanna for creating a collection we could actually imagine her wearing. Which she did: the black dress for the store opening and double jeans for the after party.

R&B, hip hop, Destinys Child and a spot of Drake played as the reality TV stars just kept on coming. X Factor, TOWIE, Made in Chelsea… The only show not represented was DOI.

Moment if the evening: the unexpected arrival of the Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith, who gave us a wave and a smile *swoon* Wonder if he got chatting to XFactor’s Jahmene Douglas about Simon Cowell? We also spotted Conor Maynard, who had also been at the club the night before along with Justin Bieber.

It reached 1am and these two fashion party girls decided to make a fatal error and head home. Yep, Rihanna showed up about, at a guess, around ten minutes later. But, not to sound too bitter, the Will Smith sighting was more than enough for us. Good girls, gone home.
