Rihanna seems to be comfortable in whatever dress she fancies. At the Westfield Stratford City Shopping Centre, she wore a double breasted coat; a blue, manlike styled ensemble that came from Raf Simons collection of Fall 2012. People in the know joked that the deep pockets of the coat were perfect to carry the gargantuan amount of £500,000 as fee that she received for her appearance. Rihanna Leads Westfield’s Christmas Lights Switch On CeremonyUnanimous choice in RihannaAnother celebrity – or celebrity group, rather – was mulled over by the Westfield Centre as a potential act for the festive event, and this was the Spice girls. The popular girl band was fresh from its successful performance at the London Olympic Games of 2012. In the end, everyone agreed that Rihanna was the ideal choice. The management decided that they want 2012 Christmas to be the best one that people of London will always remember; and so they thought Rihanna leading the Christmas light switch-on activity will be memorable.Thrilled to be back at WestfieldRihanna was happy to be asked to do the switch-on task again at Westfield Stratford. She is aware that the occasion was one of the most awaited events in the place, and so she wanted to be a part of it. She made sure that every one of the 20,000 fans had a great time as she performed afterwards. She proved to be the perfect choiceIndeed, Rihanna was the ideal celebrity to do the switch on as she gave her all. She performed magnificently in front of her fans while dressed up in an ensemble that deserved equal attention. There was an impressive turnout at the event, proving the immense popularity of the pop star. Rihanna was the top attraction, with everyone waving their cell phones as she led the ceremonies. She even posed for a few fans backstage.
Apart from being in the mannish double breasted coat, the pop star was seen wearing a red-toned scarf after she completed her Christmas light switching-on task. Rihanna were assisted by a group of young ambassadors from Save the Children, the charity affiliate of Westfield. Lucky fans were called backstage and had the chance to meet Rihanna after her performance. Rihanna seems to be a favorite celebrity when it comes to gracing such festive occasions. In 2010, she had been asked to turn Westfield’s Shepherd’s Bush Christmas lights. Last year, both centres of Westfield commissioned Justin Bieber to do the ceremony. Image Source: RCFA
