Oh no big deal, just getting custom Givenchy portrait tees delivered to us, just being on a first-name basis with Riccardo Tisci. Oh wait, that was Rihanna, not us?! *Dream sequence dissolves, siiiiiiigh* Yesterday, Rihanna posted a photo on her Instagram, revealing a tee with a very familiar looking portrait painted on it. A somewhat Impressionist rendering, the portrait is of a woman with a close cropped hairstyle, bright red lips and big eyes. Sound familiar? Yup, Rihanna can now wear her own face. We’re guessing that this super-glam gift was a belated birthday gift from the designer, and wow, what a good one it is. The present also comes just as Rihanna’s River Island collection is heading stateside. It was announced that Opening Ceremony will be the exclusive US retailer for the line, and will be celebrating the partnership with an exhibition, or a RIHtrospective, as it’s being called. More information after the jump!

Curated by Rihanna and Opening Ceremony, the RIHtrospective will showcase seven of the singer’s iconic outfits, giving shoppers an opportunity to see a piece of pop history while they peruse the exclusive collection. The collection becomes available on March 5th at Opening Ceremony stores and Online, and you can view the RIHtrospective at the Opening Ceremony flagship store in New York City. We’re not sure which outfits will be featured, but you KNOW we’ll be keeping you posted!
Will you be buying anything from the Rihanna for River Island collection when it comes to the states on Tuesday?
