Leave it to Rihanna to wear 2022's top color trend before the year even begins. On Sunday, the singer-designer attended A$AP Rocky's ComplexCon performance wearing saffron-red from head to toe. Specifically, the Savage x Fenty founder styled a diamond-print halter top from Maximilian's S/S 22 runway collection with a matching Vetements coat, Tom Ford Gucci handbag, and custom Manolo Blahnik lace-up sandals (casual).

The vibrant shade of red wasn't just spotted at Maximilian's most recent show but rather at countless shows throughout the spring 2022 fashion season, most notably, Helmut Lang, LaQuan Smith, Proenza Schouler, Kwaidan Editions, and Prada. The shade also made appearances at Loewe, Moschino, Kenneth Ize, and Oscar de la Renta. Clearly, it's going to be the color front-runner come next year. Rihanna, as per usual, is just ahead of the game.
