Rihanna's coming to Revel. And the Style Network. And London Fashion Week. As well as Opening Ceremony. Plus, she released her latest single this week. Essentially, she's everywhere!

The singer, who has designed a capsule collection for British fashion label River Island, will reveal her "really special" creations at an event on Feb. 16 during London Fashion Week. Her line will then be available online starting Mar. 5, and in Opening Ceremony stores across the U.S.

In July, when the collaboration was first announced, Rihanna said working with a British, family-run business "really appealed to me." The crooner shared that she found the city of London " inspiring" while the brand she's working with "loves to have fun with clothes."  

It's not only Rihanna's lyrics or personal life that attracts interest from millions of fans and critics. The 24-year-old is also known for her colorful, sometimes risque outfit choices. She's graced the covers of multiple fashion publications throughout her career, attended the Met Gala in recent years, and debuted capsules for Armani Exchange. And Rihanna clearly has a fashion-heavy year ahead of her with the launch of her line and the debut of her upcoming show, Styled to Rock, which she has signed on to executive produce.
