Jetting from island to island, wearing couture before it even hits the runway, revolutionising the beauty industry – Rihanna is doing it all at the moment, and now you can get a taste of what it’s like to live like a cultural icon.
The New York City apartment she’s been renting for $50,000 (£38,000) a month since 2013 just hit the market. For $16.95 million (£12.8 million), you can see exactly how Rihanna lives and let’s just say, there’s nothing understated about it.
As to be expected, this massive duplex is designed for lavish living, throwing parties, and hosting an entire crew of guests at any given time.
The four-bedroom pad spans across two floors, measuring 7,000 square feet in size – not including the 2,400-square-foot wraparound terrace that showcases unbelievable views of the Empire State Building and all of downtown Manhattan.
The interiors are all about drama, from the floating staircase to the media room with its own dry bar. The living area, attached to the chef’s kitchen, has a wood-burning fireplace, direct access to the outdoor living space, and of course, panoramic views of the cityscape.
While there are four spacious bedrooms to choose from, the master bedroom is the ultimate glam private space. With a huge walk-in wardrobe, dressing room, and fantastic city views, it’s hard to believe this is only her part-time pad.
The master bath is equally as fabulous, with a glass-enclosed double shower and a six-foot long tub that has the perfect view of Chinatown.
