Star Spotting: Rihanna’s New Year’s Party Featured Champagne, Cara Delevingne + Nonstop Flawlessness!

Rihanna clearly spent New Year’s Eve in the #NOBASICSZONE.

Isn’t it a law of physics that New Year’s Eve is NEVER as good as you want it to be? Unless you’re Rihanna, of course, who hosted a party at Jay Z’s famed 40/40 Club full of fancy black and white ensembles, beautiful friends, and glass after glass of champagne — basically a nonstop fantasia of zero eff-giving!

The “What Now” songstress shared a LARGE collection of photos from her evening on Instagram. Along with the above shot of her toasting to the new year (and presumably the #NOBASICSZONE in general), Rihanna captioned: “Midnight.”

Pour it up, pour it up!

Rihanna also posted a ton of “casual” photos from her TRÈS CHIC dinner party, where we got to see the “Pour It Up” singer assisting the private chef (!) she hired to cook the lavish meal.

Or, as Rihanna would say, “team werq.”

This was followed by a bunch of shots of her hanging with her dinner guests, who Ri adorably described as “#childhoodbestfriends.”

Hey, Melissa, we see you!

Oh, and just in case you aren’t feeling sufficiently insecure about the fact that you consumed most of your NYE beverages from a flimsy plastic champagne flute likely procured from a 24-hour convenience store (Duane Reade, holla!), the rest of Rihanna’s fabulous 40/40 Club photos are, well…


Pink Manolo Blahniks! Partying with Cara Delevingne! No one crying in the corner because “LIFE U GUISE”! THE END! See ya never.

Too much! We can’t! Ahhhh!
