Rihanna’s seven best looks will feature in an exhibition at Opening Ceremony.

The New York-based retailer will stock the singer’s designs for River Island from Tuesday and will also launch the RIHtrospective exhibition that celebrates seven of her best-known outfits.

The number of looks to be displayed has a special meaning.

The Barbadian singer recently completed her 777 tour to promote latest musical offering Unapologetic and has also released seven albums, won seven Grammy and Billboard awards and been on seven covers of Complex magazine.

The looks will cover everything from her red-carpet style to her onstage outfits.

The star’s stylist, Mel Ottenberg, told WWD her wardrobe ranges from “really pulled together or grungy for performances.”

According to the website, Rihanna helped pick the looks, which include the Adam Selman pink mini-dress she sported at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last year.

Rihanna’s collection will be available in River Island and Opening Ceremony stores and online from Tuesday.

The exhibition can be viewed at Opening Ceremony’s New York flagship and will stay open for three weeks.

Rihanna is excited to be involved in the fashion project.

“I love the high-street shops,” she gushed to the UK edition of Elle.

“The stylish kids on the streets, they’re the ones that set the trends. The designers see what they’re doing and go and design their line and sell it back to the same kids and it’s like, why not go directly to the source?”
