Traveling from island to island, trying on clothes before they even hit the runways, revolutionizing the beauty industry — who doesn't want to be Rihanna? Now you can experience what it's like to live like an icon.
In 2013, Rihanna fell in love with a penthouse in Soho that she rented for $50,000 a month. A two-story New York apartment that was once home to a Barbadian beauty just hit the market for $12.9 million. Of course, if you're only planning on living there for a month "a la RiRi," the condo is also available for rent, for a whopping $45,000 a month.
As expected, this massive duplex is designed for lavish living, hosting parties with a wide variety of people at any time. The building itself was originally built in 1911, and almost a century later, in 2004, it was turned into a luxury residential complex. The 700-square-meter apartment has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, not including the 240-square-meter terrace that showcases an incredible view of the Empire State Building and all of downtown Manhattan.
The apartment is characterized by bright and airy interiors. Here you can see large windows, custom concrete floors and an elevator that takes you straight to the top floor and opens to a large living room that is equipped with a fireplace. The living room flows right into the ultra-modern professional kitchen, equipped with Val Cucine cabinets and top-of-the-line appliances. From here you will have direct access to the amazing roof terrace.
If you take the steel and wood floating staircase down to the 11th floor, you'll find all four bedrooms. The expansive master suite is truly breathtaking with panoramic views of the Empire State Building and stunning downtown. This space also has an en-suite bathroom, toilet and a massive wardrobe - which is good news if your collection is singer-style.
