Rihanna Conceptualizes Lingerie Line

When Rihanna first started talking about the release of her makeup line Fenty, many were skeptical. After all, she was far from the first celebrity to try and create a beauty company. In fact, many celebrities have failed at trying to do exactly this. However, it quickly became obvious from the reviews that Rihanna had created something amazing. With some of the biggest names in the cosmetic name shouting the praises of Fenty, the public immediately knew that Rihanna’s beauty line was different.

In fact, Fenty is so popular that even some well-known actors wear it when they have big appearances. Actor Daniel Kaluuya, famous for his starring turn in Get Out, stated that he wore Fenty for his recent trip to the Academy Awards red carpet. But Kaluuya is hardly the only actor to get in on the action; with many notable people singing the praises of Fenty, the luscious line is popular with practically everyone.

For this reason, it’s not surprising to see that Ms. Fenty herself has now chosen to start up a lingerie line. Partnering with the TechStyle Fashion Group, Rihanna is pursuing a business model that many people believe will involve subscriptions. As fashion industry insiders have noted, this type of business is a natural fit for the powerhouse performer, who has often chosen to use garments like corsets and pajamas in her costumes and daily apparel.

Actor Daniel Kaluuya, famous for his starring turns in several hot new movies, stated that he wore Fenty for his recent trip to the Academy Awards red carpet. But Kaluuya is hardly the only actor to get in on the action; with many notable people singing the praises of Fenty, the luscious line is popular with practically everyone.

For this reason, it’s not surprising to see that Ms. Fenty herself has now chosen to start up a new lingerie line. Indeed, with this kind of track record, if the reviews or anything similar to that of Fenty, it seems that Rihanna will have yet another hit on her hands. Partnering with the same company that backed Kate Hudson‘s Fabletics brand, Rihanna will now take center stage as a lingerie mogul.

Rihanna Made It To Harvard – But Did She Need To?

Recently, pop star Rihanna was honored with a Harvard Humanitarian Award for her participation in global health, education and the empowerment of women. When she finally stepped up to receive her award – after a number of student speeches outlining her many accomplishments – she quipped “So, I made it to Harvard…”

 

Rihanna’s tongue-in-cheek comment actually touches on a much more deeply fundamental question, however: just how important is a college degree in certain fields? Of course if you’re looking for someone to design a multimillion dollar home, you want someone with a load of degrees in architecture and engineering and if you are looking for someone to remove your colon, you want a full display wall of certificates from prestigious institutions. But how important is a college degree, really, to those wanting to record a best-selling album or win an Oscar?

 

There are, of course, a number of arguments in favor of a college education for everyone. Even the most successful people will need to have some understanding of how to manage their own finances – since those that don’t are most susceptible to being robbed blind by unscrupulous money mangers. The question is, however, is a college degree really necessary for that?

 

There are a number of celebrities that clearly think it is. Child star Brooke Shields famously took time off from her acting career to pursue a degree at Princeton and A-List celebs ranging from Adam Sandler to Alec Baldwin to Carrie Underwood all hold college degrees. On the other hand, a wide range of A-List celebs and some of the wealthiest people on the planet – including Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates – didn’t seem to feel a college degree was necessary for their success. And clearly they were right. Some celebs, like Mark Wahlberg, Christina Aguilera and Simon Cowell didn’t even graduate high school.

 

It seems that a clear argument can be made that while success may be somewhat predicated on being well-educated, education is not always synonymous with having a college degree. While Rihanna may have finally made it to Harvard, it doesn’t seem like her lack of a degree has held her back in any way.
