Is there anything Rihanna can't do? The superstar is mostly known for her epic music career, but she's also building out quite the business empire. She already has a wildly successful beauty brand and a lingerie line, and now she's gearing up to take the luxury fashion world by storm. 

According to WWD, RiRi has been "in secret discussions" with LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the parent company of ultra-high-end labels Dior, Givenchy, and Fendi. The plan is to reportedly "launch a luxury house under her name." 

So far, neither LVMH nor Rihanna has confirmed the reports, but that doesn't mean we haven't already started saving up for the first collection launch.

Rihanna is reportedly working on a luxury fashion label.

That's right: Everyone's favorite Bad Gal is ready to turn the fashion world upside down. And we are totally here for it.

According to WWD, she's been "in secret discussions" with LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton to create "a luxury house under her name."

Sources told the publication that "LVMH has already handpicked a clutch of employees from within, including some from Louis Vuitton and Celine, to work on the project in tandem with Rihanna and some of her key associates." 

So, I mean, it's essentially official, right?

RiRi's hugely successful makeup brand, Fenty Beauty, may have played a role in getting her own luxury fashion label off the ground.

"[LVMH] first became aware of the power of her base when it signed her to Kendo, its beauty subsidiary, in 2017," the New York Times reported. "The runaway success of Fenty Beauty, premised on addressing a diverse array of skin tones — and which itself already has 6.3 million Instagram followers — astonished the group."

Her Savage X Fenty lingerie collection has further demonstrated her ability to give consumers what they want.

She's become a master of marketing who really understands how to leverage her various platforms. We stan a bad gal businesswoman. 

Last month, RiRi fueled rumors about her fashion line when she was spotted wearing mystery Fenty-branded sunglasses.

The oversize sunnies had the word "Fenty" etched on the side. And now I want them in every color.

Her fashion line is "already funded and being built from the ground up," according to Us Weekly.

So, in other words, the time to start a separate all-things-Rihanna savings account is NOW. We just need to accept that RiRi is gonna take all of our money.

“A lot of people in the fashion industry are trying to move from their companies to work on Rihanna’s line, because her sales are always very high,” Us Weekly reported.

The publication's source adds that the line will be “elevated” and “upscale” — but with a “cool girl” spin. I am already fantasizing about it.

Of course, she's no stranger to the fashion world.

Back in 2013, she teamed up with British brand River Island on a collection of clothing and accessories. She also previously worked with Dior on a line of sunglasses in 2016.

Rihanna's Fenty x Puma activewear collaboration has definitely made its mark within the industry.

Have you ever seen activewear look this good? She can really do no wrong.

LVMH and Rihanna have yet to comment on their rumored partnership.

But US Weekly reported that "a Fenty fashion launch could correspond with the debut of the singer’s new album later this year."

If it turns out to be true, Rihanna could become the first black woman to strike such a deal with LVMH.

So not only will she drop some fire fashion, she'll also be breaking barriers at the same time. UGH, HER MIND.

She did not come to play, y'all.

RiRi is truly a trailblazing and trend-setting queen. We do not deserve her.

One fan called the potential deal "beyond powerful." 

She's poised to be the first female designer of color at the largest luxury conglomerate in the world. Name one industry Rihanna can't conquer. I'll wait. 

But as excited as we are for the fashion, does this also mean we'll be getting new music soon??

Well, at least a girl can dream. Give the people want they want, RiRi!
