Fenty’s Fortune: Rihanna Is Now Officially A Billionaire.

She is now worth $1.7 Billion (Rs 1,27,39.37 Cr), Forbes estimates—making her the wealthiest female musician in the world and second only to Oprah Winfrey as the richest female entertainer. 

Most of her fortune an estimated $1.4 billion (Rs 1,04,76.90 Cr) has come from the value of Fenty Beauty, of which Forbes can now confirm she owns 50%. Much of the rest lies in her stake in her lingerie company, Savage x Fenty, worth an estimated $270 million (Rs 20,20.54 Cr). 

While Barbados-born Rihanna is not only the celebrity to maximise her social media presence—she has 110million followers on Instagram and 103.3 million followers on Twitter—to build a beauty brand, she is the most successful beauty entrepreneur to do so.

Fenty Beauty, a 50-50 joint venture with French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH run by Bernard Arnault, the world’s third-richest person at the time of writing this article, has launched in 2017 with the goal of inclusivity.

By 2018, its first full calendar year, the line was bringing in more than $550 million (Rs  41,16.54 Cr) in annual revenues, according to LVMH, beating out other celebrity-founded brands like Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics, Kim Kardashian West’s KKW Beauty and Jessica Alba’s Honest Co.

That is good news for her, thanks to the beauty companies which are trading, Fenty Beauty is worth a conservative $2.8 billion (Rs  2,09,52.40 Cr) as per the Forbes data. Its signs point to the company continuing to grow. In its annual report for 2020, LVMH said Fenty Skin, which launched last year, was off to a “very promising start” and “generated unprecedented buzz,” and that Fenty Beauty “maintained its appeal as a premier makeup brand.”

Fenty Beauty isn’t her only billion-dollar brand. In February her lingerie line Savage x Fenty raised $115 million (Rs 8,60.54 Cr) in funding at a $1 billion (Rs 74,83.00 Cr) valuation. 

The company, which launched in 2018 as a joint venture with TechStyle Fashion Group, counts blue-chip investors like Jay-Z’s Marcy Venture Partners and private equity firm L. Catterton in which Bernard Arnault is an investor as shareholders.  She maintains a 30% ownership stake, as per Forbes

Launched in 2019, Fenty sought to extend her brand of inclusivity and offer styles in a range of sizes. 

The only complaint some fans may have about her career as a fashion and beauty icon? It keeps her busy. The singer, who used to release an album almost every year, hasn’t released a new album since 2016’s Anti.
