While we’re patiently waiting for ANTI (formerly rumored as R8), Rihanna is keeping busy as a businesswoman. In an exclusive with The Hollywood Reporter, Ri Ri reveals that along with partner Benoit Demouy she’s founded a beauty and styling agency called Fr8me.
Based out of Los Angeles, the firm offers styling in hair, make-up and wardrobe. With a team consisting of Jason Bolden (Taraji P. Henson’s wardrobe stylist), famed hairstylists Marcia Hamilton and Patricia Morales and MUA’s like Mylah Morales, Rihanna says she hopes to bring a new flavor of beauty.
“Hair, make-up and styling play an important role in creativity,” Rihanna tells THR. “I am very involved with that part of my process, so this agency was an organic thing for me to do.”
During the interview, Ri also revealed a photo agency called A Dog Ate My Homework would be the sister to the styling agency. Their clients include famed shooters Erik Asla and Deborah Anderson.
While it comes as no surprise that Rihanna—who tops every Best Dressed list around—would try her hand at beauty and fashion, we’re still hoping her next project is another chart-topping album.
