Rihanna Attended a Football Match Carrying a $3,500 Inflatable Soccer Ball as a Purse


Rihanna attended a soccer match in Turin, Italy, wearing an accessory only she could pull off: a Louis Vuitton ball-shaped purse.

The beauty mogul attended the Juventus vs Athletic Madrid UEFA Champions League match with her brother earlier this week, and all eyes were on her very appropriate accessory.

According to Page Six, the limited-edition piece, featuring the signature brown LV monogram pattern and a leather shoulder strap, was originally created in the late ’90s to celebrate the 1998 World Cup in France. And it wasn’t actually even designed to be a purse. Instead, it’s an inflatable ball that comes with a tip to blow air in it like a real soccer ball.

It’s not clear how much the vintage “bag” costs, but pre-owned versions are available online starting at $2,800 and up to $3,500.

To complete her look, Rihanna wore a monochromatic brown outfit—all pieces from her Fenty clothing line—and accessorized it with sunglasses, a scarf, and Louis Vuitton ankle boots.

During the game, she also posed for photos with a Juventus jersey that had “Riri” printed on the back. It even featured the number 20, likely chosen in honor of her birthday on February 20.
