The shades, that have just been revealed, are literally #SunglassesGoals. Named ‘Rihanna’, these metallic sunnies are arguably the it accessory of the season. Futuristic-looking and complete with reflective lenses, they come in six colours including rose gold and acid green, as well as a special edition 24-carat gold-plated pair.
Here’s what they look like
The range of eyewear is said to be inspired by Star Trek
In a statement to WWD, Rihanna explains how she was inspired by Star Trek’s character Geordi La Forge from The Next Generation: ‘I’ve always been obsessed with his eyewear, and when I got to Dior and saw all the materials I could play with, it all just came together.’
They also kinda have the same crisp futuristic feel as the style slayer’s Fenty Puma collection
Word on the street is that these Dior stunners will retail for the whopping amount of $840 (R13k) and $1,950 (R30k) for the 24-carat gold-plated edition. #Whoa
Although they’re only available to the public in June, Riri’s already been spotted wearing them with several looks, including

Dior CEO Sidney Toledano says: ‘We are very pleased to partner for the second time with Rihanna, she is an artist, an entertainer, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a style icon for today’s generation.’
The shades are exactly what we would expect from our girl Riri.
