The celebrities went all out with their Halloween costumes this year, and it seems detail was the name of the game when Rihanna decided to pay extremely enjoyable tribute to rapper Gunna with hers.
Harry Styles might have given us Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, and Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker might have paid homage to the movie True Romance, but RiRi went way more precise with her Halloween inspo.
The 33-year-old star left no stone unturned with her Gunna costume, even recreating the rapper’s specific poses alongside his clothing from an Instagram carousel of a look he posted back in September during New York Fashion Week.
Her upload, which included the same caption as Gunna’s original – ‘D . S . 4’ and a ninja emoji – saw the Umbrella singer dressed in black shorts, a sleeveless black leather jacket and a patterned black long-sleeve jumper like the rapper’s, as well as the same Rick Owens knee-high sneaker-style boots, chunky black sunglasses and heavy silver chain necklaces.
The Fenty entrepreneur also wore her hair in similar braids and went to town with the exactness of her body positions, perfectly replicating Gunna’s poses of one foot out with hand in a pocket, bent arms and a hand to his forehead.
Her careful studying drew praise from the man himself, who shared her post on his Instagram Stories with the caption ‘Nawwww she OD’ and then promptly changed his profile picture to one of Rihanna as himself – as you do.
Fans and friends in the comments could not get enough of RiRi’s homage to the 28-year-old, with one commenting: ‘But like who’s who?!’ and a line of clapping emojis.
Another posted a line of bullseye emojis (we quite agree) while Sofia Richie wrote: ‘Every. Damn. Pose.’
Van Lathan Jr joked: ‘Gunna fainted when he saw this’ and Gunna also dropped his praise and admiration (and dare we say, surprise?) in the comments with: ‘Nawww U OVERLY WON 🙌🏽’
The rapper had initially received a bit of a hard time over his ensemble when he first posted it, with Gunna taking to his Stories to say he didn’t ‘wanna hear a word about my outfits ever again.’
Now that megastar RiRi herself has come out in support of his look, we reckon the sting has been well and truly removed from that.
