Look Alive, People! Rihanna Is Coming To London Fashion Week

rihanna-river-island We were already pretty chuffed at the addition of Tom Ford and L'Wren Scott to the official London Fashion Week schedule, but now we're just being spoiled.

Turns out Rihanna will also be gracing the Big Smoke with her presence during LFW. The recent Vogue UK and current Complex cover star will host a catwalk show on 16 February to mark the launch of her collaboration with River Island (punches air, digs out autograph book).

Though the collection — already being worn by RiRi — doesn't hit stores until the 5 March, with a campaign starring Britain's own Jourdan Dunn, the pop star is wasting no time in showing off her new designs.

"Launching at London Fashion Week is a dream come true for me," she says. "I have wanted to design my own collection for a long time and to present my collection for River Island alongside all of the other great design talent at LFW is a real privilege. I can't wait to see the reaction from my fans and the fashion press!"

Bonus: Due to his unsavoury record, Chris Brown has frequently been denied a U.K. visa, so we can confidently assume he won't be coming along.

Let the celebrations begin! (Telegraph)
