Rihanna lived out every fashionista's dream this week, as she bagged the keys to Coco Chanel's apartment in Paris and was taken on a tour of the iconic home.

RiRi was handed the keys to the legendary fashion designer's apartment on Tuesday (4 June) and wasted no time in posing for pictures in every room and re-creating classic Chanel moments, as well as getting her very own history lesson about the building from a local expert.

The Bajan songstress posted candid snaps of her relaxing on a sofa in Coco's living room, sitting on the famous spiral staircase and even checking over her River Island collection designs in the exact same spot that Coco was said to have made finishing touches to her Chanel pieces.

She tweeted: "Checking my designs where #Coco checked hers!!! #imjustdifferent"

RiRi even got to meet up with Chanel's accessories designer, Laetitia Crahay and she also re-created an old shot of Coco sat on a chaise longue with a cigarette in her hand, captioning the picture: "Replicating a #Coco moment".

Wearing a classic white jacket and skirt, Rihanna looked elegant for the occasion, but also added her own twist to the outfit by teaming her tailored items with a lace bralet, a pair of gold creepers and lots of bling.

Re-creating the classic Coco picture

The chart-topping singer paid homage to Coco by sporting a Chanel brooch and a pair of Chanel sunglasses too. Well, it seems only right since she was hanging out in the late fashion designer's apartment!

Later in the evening, RiRi continued to brush shoulders with the fashion elite by having dinner with famed couturier and shoe designer, Azzedine Alaïa, for which she wore a showstopping catsuit that flaunted her fabulous figure to the max.

Mr Alaïa even took Rihanna and her BFF, Melissa Forde, to his showroom for a private tour after their meal - something which RiRi couldn't help bragging about on her Instagram account.

She wrote: "He took us to his showroom!!! #Alaia #afterhours #thatshowweballout #HowParisIsDone #ItsABajanThing #weknowwhyyoumadoverthurr"
