Heading into Nobu in NYC, the “This Is What You Came For” singer, 28, worked the crisp top, which reached just her upper thighs, with a brown belt and Aquazzura’s lace-up Wild Thing stilettos ($785, saksfifthavenue.com). She also added a quilted bubble-gum-pink clutch.
When Rihanna stepped back out of the restaurant later, she had lost her belt, wearing the men’s-style shirt loose and free.
Meanwhile, Drake, 29, looked dapper in a black-and-yellow letterman jacket from his October’s Very Own fashion label, a black tee, olive pants and pristine white Nike sneaks. After the date, the pair — who have fueled relationship rumors since 2009, when they were spotted being affectionate while bowling — hopped into a car and headed to SoHo’s Blond Lounge.
The outing came just one night after the “One Dance” singer presented Rihanna with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at MTV VMAs 2016 — and professed his undying love. He saluted the “We Found Love” singer as an icon who “succeeds by doing something that no one in this music industry does, which is being herself.” And then he added, “She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. She’s one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life, I’ve looked up to her even though she’s younger than me. She’s a living, breathing legend in our industry. Ladies and gentlemen, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award for 2016: Rihanna.”
While the longtime friends and frequent collaborators have yet to confirm their relationship status, Drake followed up his passionate speech by posting a picture of himself kissing the Barbadian beauty via Instagram.
