AHH! FINALLY! The moment we’ve been waiting for since we caught our first few seconds of the track: the inevitable reveal of a music video for A$AP Rocky’s “Fashion Killa“! We KNEW a song that laundry lists as many high fashion labels as this one would guarantee a star-spangled music video wardrobe, but this is so much more than that. Not only does the short boast Rihanna in a major starring role, but Rocky and Virgil Abloh are also perched together for co-director credits. Talk about major. As is customary whenever a stylish new music video rolls through, we’re breaking this guy down look by look!

Blink and you might’ve missed this hooded, masked, tank-and-hose-toting guy. He’s not necessarily what we’d call a “fashion killa,” but he’ll be important later. Take notes!

Here she is! RiRi makes much more than a cameo, appearing on-screen within the first few seconds of the video. And wearing a jiggy Supreme jersey and bandana headband no less!

Guess who’s also wearing Supreme! Aww, the (video) couple that reps brands together stays together. Kudos to Rocky for the adventurous double logo look.

Apparently fashion killa couples also wear matching shoes. More specifically, Raf Simons x adidas sneakers that no one else has yet. *hair mullet flip*

We finally see that Tom Ford zebra gown (complete with hairy collar!) in action, and you’ll never guess what Rihanna does in it…

Yup. She makes out with a mannequin. Right in front of Rocky!! He doesn’t bat an eye because he’s really secure about their relationship and isn’t threatened by the allure of attractive objects.

The pair of fashion killas go on to do exactly what you’d expect: goof around trying on clothes in stores. Here we see Rocky modeling a shawl collar cardigan. Very ninja goth.

This is a shot of the couple walking into another store. Rocky got chilly in his DKNY t-shirt and added a DKNY windbreaker. Always be prepared with layers, y’all.

THIS. Rihanna adds another animal element to her already wild ensemble with what we believe is a Maison Michel cat ear veil. Rocky hugs her from behind while they’re looking in the mirror because OMG SHE’S SO FUDGING CUTE!

Change of scenery? Change of outfits. They hop into some sort of vehicle, and Rihanna is now wearing a leather halter top embossed with stripes and dollar signs. #LUXURY

Oh yea, there’s also this moment where the narrative breaks for A$AP Ferg to spit a few bars of “Murda Something” in front of a bodega. He’s wearing Hood By Air because why not?

Rocky and Rihanna take a break from clothes shopping to stay up on the latest trends—perusing their favorite Duane Reade magazine rack.

“Hey, it’s me!” – A$AP Rocky
“Oh yea?” *whips out GQ cover* “Me too.” *mimes cat scratch* – Rihanna

Just in case you didn’t believe. Here’s a nice, crisp, clear shot of Rihanna’s new mullet in all its glory. There’s also some really excellent jewelry game here, too, so don’t overlook that. Stacked coil rings. Multiple earrings. Great stuff.

While we’re on accessories, let’s give these lucite shades (NBD that it’s nighttime…) and Ri’s grill a little shine. *holds a beat* Thank you.

Finally, the video ends with the GRAND REVEAL. That weird dude dragging what looks like a fire extinguisher around the city? Apparently, he’s a Kidult homage. The brain trust behind the “Fashion Killa” music video recreated that time Kidult tagged the SoHo Marc Jacobs store. Why? We have no idea. Will this also end up on a t-shirt? We hope so.
