Rihanna certainly isn't about to let her pregnancy impact her style choices if her latest bump-baring look is anything to go by.

It's been mere days since the singer revealed her pregnancy for the first time and already she's showcased quite the maternity wardrobe.

Most recently, the star, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky, stepped out in a glamorous lace-up top, which showed off her growing stomach.

Proving that she plans on tearing up the traditional maternity style rule book, the 33-year-old brought the glam when she stepped out for dinner in Beverly Hills in an incredible barely-there, lace-up top.

Teaming the black number with skintight, black stirrup trousers and rocking towering heels with crystal ankle detailing, RiRi offered proof that maternity wear doesn't need to be boring.

The blingy gold jewellery skimming her bump, oversized sunglasses and a cropped coat finished the bold look.

For make-up, the mum-to-be sported a gorgeous deep, plum-hued lip, which her make-up artist Priscilla Ono later revealed was a shade from Fenty’s new Icon Lipstick collection, called Board Memb'R and kept her hair slicked back in a sleek do with two tiny plaits framing her face

It’s among the first times the singer has been spotted out and about since revealing her exciting news and, after sharing the images to her Instagram, fans showed their appreciation for the look in the comments, with many praising the star for redefining the pregnancy style rules.

"No one should even bother getting pregnant after you, we aren’t interested," one user wrote.

"Fashion game strong af," agreed another.

"Baby bumps done right," another fan commented, while another simply wrote: "ICONIC".

Rihanna's bump first made its first appearance last Monday in a pregnancy announcement photo shoot, which lit up the Internet.

Wandering around New York City with her baby daddy, RiRi wore a hot-pink vintage Chanel puffer coat unbuttoned above her stomach to reveal her growing bump.

She paired the look with distressed wide-leg jeans, chunky bump-skimming jewellery and heels.

Rihanna also shared a new image of her baby bump on social media, personally introducing her 'gang' of three.

The Fenty Beauty cosmetics entrepreneur posted a series of photos on her Instagram account, the first of which showed her holding up her oversized top, with orange gloves on, revealing the bump from the side.

"How the gang pulled up to black history month," she captioned the post.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, a singer/producer, reportedly started dating in 2020, only appearing in public together a few times.

In September, they memorably made their red carpet debut at the Met Gala, where they rocked duvet-like (but very high fashion) co-ordinated outfits.

Rihanna wore a large, black, puffer coat dress with a matching black hat, while A$AP Rocky wore a colourful multi-coloured quilt, with a suit underneath.

The couple have previously opened up about their hopes of becoming parents.

In May 2021, the rapper told GQ that not only was Rihanna indeed "the one," but that starting a family was part of his destiny.

"I think when you know, you know. She's the One," he told the outlet at the time, saying that starting a family was certainly "in my destiny, absolutely."

He added, "I think I'd be an incredible, remarkably overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very."

Rihanna also opened up about her motherhood plans, saying wants to have at least "three or four children," whether she has a partner or not.

"I feel like society makes me want to feel like, 'Oh, you got it wrong …' They diminish you as a mother if there's not a dad in your kids' lives," she told British Vogue in March 2020. "But the only thing that matters is happiness; that's the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That's the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love."
