In 2014, Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o sat front row at Miu Miu's show during Paris Fashion Week. Last weekend, this photo of them from the event went viral on Twitter.  It all started when k, or @1800SADGAL, wrote that—with her yellow fur, dark shades, and blunt bangs—Rihanna looked "like she scams rich white men." And Lupita, who wore chunky glasses and a collared shirt,looked like Rih's "computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans [sic]." https://twitter.com/1800SADGAL Lupita was immediately down for this.
