Rihanna's Super Bowl-Inspired Oscars Look Goes Viral—'She Is So Unbothered'

Rihanna was playing it cool when she arrived at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood for Sunday's 2023 Oscars, as she eschewed the traditional sparkling gown for something a little more understated—to begin with anyway.

The 35-year-old singer, who is pregnant with her second child with rapper A$AP Rocky, arrived at the venue ahead of her performance at the film awards, in a casual get up including a gray Philadelphia Eagles jersey.

Rihanna performed at the Super Bowl last month, where the Eagles lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, and the singer's look has gone viral with her low key entrance among cocktail servers.

More than 1.7 million people have viewed the short clip, posted by Us Weekly, in which she wore Jean Paul Gaultier's "The Laminated" Bucket Hat in metallic green and black-and-white Puma sneakers to accompany her Super Bowl inspired jersey.

Rihanna's fans took to social media to celebrate her casual arrival, with one person commenting on Twitter: "Everyone in expensive fancy outfits. Rihanna pulling up in a hoddie she is so unbothered."

Many stopped to look as Rihanna walked through the drinks reception before she emerged later on the red carpet, which was beige for the night, dressed in a far more glamorous outfit.

The singer's growing baby bump was on full display as she walked the red carpet in a black leather crop top and matching skirt from Alaïa along with a sheer blouse.

The chart-topper had received her first-ever Oscar nomination this year for best original song for the track, "Lift Me Up," from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Rihanna performed the nominated song at the ceremony, in front of a star-studded audience which included host Jimmy Kimmel as well as Lady Gaga, Cara Delevingne and Jamie Lee Curtis.

While the singer was hailed for her performance, she lost out on the Oscar to Indian feature film RRR, which became the first movie from the country to win the prestigious award with "Naatu Naatu" from the soundtrack.

Fans who were hoping to see Rihanna with her other half, A$AP Rocky, were left disappointed but were pre-warned earlier this month that he would not be at the ceremony itself.

Sharing a clip of her son finding out that his mom would be going to the Oscars without him, Rihanna captioned the tweet: "My son when he found out his sibling is going to the Oscars and not him @TheAcademy #oscarnominee #oscarperformancein1week swipe for tb of my fat man."

Evidently, A$AP Rocky was on dad duties as Rihanna sparkled on stage and became one of the talking points of the night at the Oscars.
