Rihanna and her BFF, Katy Perry, were seen out and about, partying together, in New York City over the weekend.
The pop singers were seen exiting a van together in New York City’s Meatpacking district on Saturday, hitting up the VIP room at OPUS 51 nightclub on Manhattan’s west side, according to People Magazine.
Rihanna wore a ’60s inspired patchwork mini dress with pink and orange suede fringed heels, while Perry was styling another outfit from the era, wearing a high-waisted, paisley-printed silky blue pants and a loose-fitting white crop top. She wore her ombre-dyed black and light brown hair down, complete with a middle part. Rihanna showed off her flowing tresses in a curly updo, and finished off her look with a light-pink lipstick.
