The beautiful Rhianna, has made quite a name for herself as a singer, songwriter and actress. But the Barbadian sensation hasn’t stopped there. As a business woman, she has dabbled in various ventures ranging from music to beauty and fashion. Only recently, WWD revealed that Rhianna, working with Bernard Arnault of LVMH, is set to launch a luxury house in her own name.
The 31 year old star has gradually unveiled an ambitious and entrepreneur side to her that the world didn’t see coming when she was launched with her debut track “Pon de Replay”. She established her own music label, Westbury Road Entertainment in 2005. Her first fragrance, Reb’l Fleur was released in 2011 and more have been produced since then. She co-owns Tidal (with other celebrities), a music streaming service, which was announced in 2015. In the same year, a beauty and stylist agency, Fr8me was founded, alongside a photo agency: A Dog Ate My Homework. Fenty Beauty, her cosmetic line was launched in 2017 under LVMH’s Kendo brand. And in 2018, her lingerie brand, Savage X Fenty was born.
Reportedly, the Sun has it that Rhianna’s dad has always known that his little girl would go into business due to her entrepreneurial flair as a child. In her teens, Rhianna sold clothes in a street stall, back in Barbados. She has come a long way since then, having successfully diversified her career and is worth about $260 million (as at 2018).
Displaying good sense by finding expression for her art, style and enterprising spirit all together, Riri has followed in the steps of Jessica Alba, Beyonce, Sofia Vegara, Victoria Beckham and a swarm of women in showbusiness who have proven themselves artists and business women combined.
