Thanks so tour sponsors River Island I became one of the few people in the world to board the 777 boeing private jet and go to 7 countries in 7 days. Starting in LA we flew to Mexico City, Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London and New York. The week was a roller coaster of events an experience I will never forget! follow the full week through the InStyle diary I compiled but these are my highlights and what I wore on the trip!
leather trousers by acne
boots by balenciaga
silver bag by issey miyake
grey vest american apparel
Black jeans were another firm favourite on the trip but have added my printed jumper to add some colour to the outfit as its easy just to stick to black or neutral colours these tones are a f=great match with basics

jeans by topshop
Another piece from my wardrobe you have seen but the silk bomber jacket seemed to be the jacket of choice for other members of Rihannas team it is padded and so easy to fold into bags bit also good for warmth find your perfect one and add it to everything for an instant update this season!

Finally the most important thing to pack was what I would travel in when sleeping on the plane became a major part of the trip! For this I decided to travel all in grey (being my new black) and cashmere was the way forward as it doesn't sag when scrunched up in a small space and keeps you warm at all times. I have added a printed scarf to give detail to a plain look good tip for travelling stick to simple pieces but add cool accessories

My favourite Rihanna look was her outfit she wore in Paris head to toe Givenchy mens silk tee and thigh boots. Rihanna's stylist Mel Ottenberg and her hair stylist Yusef both say that she finds her clothing inspiration through mens fashion magazines, a girl after my own heart!
