Rihanna Wore Vintage Chanel To Go Shark Diving

The first thing people always ask after you go shark diving is, “Well, what did you wear?” Rihanna’s response, obviously, would be “Vintage Chanel.” Rih is currently in South Africa AfRIHca wearing designer duds and hanging out with a lot of animals. In the past three days she’s posted pics with a lion cub, a giraffe, a “G’d up” crab, and a penguin. She also appears to have a professional photographer with her, which leads us to believe Rih is either planning a children’s book or a holiday coffee table book: She X Animalz (our suggested title for either and/or both).

Since a trip to an aquarium and zoo is the perfect setting for an Rihanna-approved fashion shoot (where isn’t though, amirite?), Rih has been wearing designer threads to hang out with her new, non-human friends. Awkward sidebar: she and a penguin both showed up in Givenchy and Miu Miu. After that embarrassing experience, Rih wasn’t gonna mess with anything current to swim with sharks. She needed to go vintage.

Rih teased her shark diving look with a #SELFIE, but we were too distracted by her pink Prabal Gurung X Linda Farrow sunglasses and long braid to even notice that her bikini top was #CCertified. Thankfully, Rih followed up with a shot of the pink and yellow-trimmed suit and the matching cardigan and pants and captioned it “..vintage Chanel swimsuit suit…” That got our attention. We even managed to spot the tiny, intersecting yellow Cs on the right corner of her bathing suit. If you’re going to risk your life and swim with sharks (it’s probably totally safe but still), you may as well do it wearing Chanel. I wouldn’t do it any other way, TBH. Just kidding, I wouldn’t swim with sharks even if Karl Lagerfeld personally designed me a shark-proof suit. I’d wear that suit on the beach, though. You hear me, Karl?

Unfortunately, there are no pics of Rihanna with sharks (yet!), but we hope the sharks appreciate the effort Rih put into looking good for them. She could’ve just worn, like, a recently-made one piece.
