Newly single Rihanna may be spending the holidays on the beachy sands of her native Barbados, but she’s still keeping an active social calendar, making time to hobnob with retail heavyweights like Topshop owner Sir Philip Green. But despite rumors that the Bajan beauty will become the trendy chain’s next celebrity designer, no official deal is in the works, according to
WWD
. Speculation surfaced after the 22-year-old performer Tweeted Monday: “Just had dinner w/ Simon Cowell Philip Green,and Lucian G., and Ashley (thanks) @ Sandy Lane! Great night!” WWD reports industry sources as saying the dinner was “purely social,” while a Topshop spokesman declined to comment. Regardless of whether Rihanna will or won’t be designing for Topshop, we do know that she is a huge fan of the store –- spending lots of time at the flagship during a recent trip to London –- and that her youthful, edgy style would make a perfect fit with the fashion-forward retailer. Tell us: Would you like to see Rihanna design for Topshop? – Hana Choi
