Rihanna Shows Up Fashionable – and Fashionably Late – for Album Party
Dara Kushner/INF



Life doesn't get much sweeter for Rihanna.

The singer got a black-and-grey cake from the Cake Boss at the New York City launch party for her new album, Rated R on Tuesday night at Juliet Supperclub. The cake was decorated to match her chosen "dark" theme, and included mannequins, barbed wire, and two televisions with images of art from her album. It was all crowned by a silver "R."

Of course, Rihanna's lucky she got a piece at all. She showed up three hours late to the party, though she made her usual splash in a short, gold-sequined dress by noir jewelry for The Blonds, dazzling the likes of Diddy, Jay-Z, Fabulous and Christian Siriano.
