Rihanna and A$AP Rocky Take Their Sporty Couples Style to Formula 1
These two always pass the vibe check.
If we were to crown a king and queen of modern fashion Rihanna and A$AP Rocky would be frontrunners for the throne. With a love of fashion and a seemingly innate ability to look cool in just about anything, the duo have proven time and time again that they’re a match made in style heaven.
And the pair just went the extra mile (see what we did there?) with their latest looks at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Las Vegas.
Naturally, Rih and Rocky’s outfits looked as simpatico as ever during multiple appearances at the high-profile sporting weekend, including attending the November 17 launch of A$AP’s Puma x F1 collection, for which the rapper acted as creative director.

For the outing, Rocky donned pieces from the new collection, which included baggy blue pants detailed with white stitching and a neon green graphic tee underneath a grey logo-adorned jacket. To accessorize his race weekend wear, he wore a seatbelt-style belt, a navy blue baseball cap, neon yellow shoes and matching neon gloves from his latest brand partnership.
Rihanna matched her beau’s vibe with a long, multi-pocketed dark brown leather jacket that featured a high collar and silver embellishments. She finished off the sleek look with Messika jewellery, black pumps and a slicked-back top knot. Our favourite detail though? Her neon green nails, which were undoubtedly a nod to Rocky’s collection that proved, once again, that the couple are masters at subtly coordinating their looks down to every last detail.
Although we may be most used to seeing the couple deliver head-turning looks at major events like last weekend’s race or Paris Fashion Week, the parents of two consistently serve fashion in their more low-key moments, too.
While taking their oldest son RZA out for a day at the park on November 13, Rihanna and A$AP sported a matching look in Loewe tracksuit jackets with light-wash baggy jeans. They even wore similar accessories, each donning black belts and navy baseball caps to complete their fashion-forward streetwear looks. Was RZA also wearing a Loewe zip-up?? We need to know!

While they’re pros at donning carefully coordinated looks (a feat that not all celebrity couples have as easily accomplished), RiRi and A$AP rarely ever match to this extent. Instead, they often opt for complementary pieces and sometimes dress in a similar palette. But Rihanna is nothing if not a style chameleon and we’re into this cute couple style moment.
Here, we look back at some of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s best, most carefully coordinated outfits below.
At a Paris Fashion Week event in 2022, Rihanna and A$AP proved that outfits can work together while still looking unique. While Rihanna sported a sweet head-to-toe peach look, consisting of a leather mini-dress and a shearling coat, A$AP went in the total opposite direction with a tough black leather ensemble. Despite the differences between the two looks, the contrasting colour palettes and matching textures work.
A patterned pair
Just a few days after they wore a series of glamorous looks at the 2023 Oscars back in March of this year, Rihanna and A$AP kept things casual with their similar patterned tops, loose-fitting denim bottoms and chunky boots.
While celebrating the Fenty Beauty x Fenty Skin event back in February of 2022, Rihanna sported was of her most famous maternity looks in a custom set by The Attico. A$AP wore a purple Louis Vuitton varsity jacket and distressed denim to the event, with the subtle green accents on his jacket sleeves and shoes complementing RiRi’s sequinned top.

To support Pharrell’s debut Louis Vuitton presentation at the brand’s Spring 2024 show in Paris, the duo wore one of their most matchy-matchy looks ever.
A$AP wore light-wash denim pieces adorned with the brand’s LV logo, while Rihanna went with a darker denim ensemble adorned with Pharrell’s signature pixellated LV pattern. Of course, they both wore crystal-embellished beanies to tie the looks together.
While attending the red carpet premiere of Black Panther 2 in October 2022, the couple took their love of high fashion to new heights, er, lengths with both RiRi and A$AP’s outfits featuring subtle trains.
For her part, Rihanna wore a grey sequinned strapless gown with denim stitching, completing the look with slouchy opera gloves and matching heels. A$AP matched Rihanna’s vibe with a similar grey denim-on-denim look, which, of course, featured its own mini-train.
A black tie affair
The duo stunned at the 80th annual Golden Globe awards in one of their most glamorous couple looks yet.
Rihanna wowed in a black velvet Schiaparelli couture gown with voluminous, cape-like sleeves. She accessorized the look with a jaw-dropping diamond necklace and earrings that, combined with her updo, gave her look an old Hollywood vibe. A$AP kept his look simple with a sleek black tux that matched his girlfriend’s outfit while letting her have the spotlight.
Lots of leather
Sunglasses at night have never looked cooler. While enjoying a date night back in May 2023, Rihanna’s fashion-forward pregnancy look was comprised of a fuzzy grey turtleneck crop top, a black leather skirt and one of the most luxurious-looking faux fur jackets we’ve ever seen.
A$AP’s casual leather jacket, white button-down and cargo shorts effortlessly complemented RiRi’s eclectic ensemble for a seamless couple style moment.
