We all know that subtlety is not Rihanna‘s strong suit, which is why we weren’t surprised when the singer-slash-designer took to Instagram on Monday night to show off the piles of holiday gifts she’s received from a number of prestigious fashion houses.
Rihanna, who has her own line for River Island and a wildly successful MAC collaboration, received hand-written notes and personalized presents from the likes of McQ Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Prada and Opening Ceremony. To make her holidays just a bit sweeter, the Mulleavy sisters made her a custom Rodarte outfit, and Donatella Versace gifted her a bag from the yet to be released Spring 2014 collection.
Celebrities flaunting their designer swag over social media is nothing new — remember when Kim Kardashian posted photo after photo of baby North West’s designer gifts? — and while it’s lovely that Rihanna is giving the brands shout outs to thank them for their generosity, we can’t quite tell if this is a gesture to take the place of thank you notes or just an excuse to show off.
