From teaming with LA hippier jeweler Jacquie Aiche to sock brand Stance, it's clear Rihanna is in a SoCal state of mind—which makes us wonder which local label (or unknown Instagrammer) will be the next to score her Midas touch. This week, the international pop star and Jenner muse was spotted with her crew in Beverly Hills, where she hit up MAC North Beverly and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Given that Rick Owens's megastore is set to open soon and the Barbados-bred multi-hyphenate is a fan, we wouldn't be surprised if she makes an appearance at the designer's shop. Not that we condone stalking, but getting your merch into RiRi's hands is certainly one sneaky way to score a starry endorsement. (Shea Marie, you listening?)
