Rihanna Builds Dream NYC Closet: As if our apartment envy wasn’t bad enough. After problems with intruders at her Pacific Palisades home, Rihanna decided two months ago to move to the east coast. And, like all things RiRi, she’s doing it in a big way. The singer not only rented a duplex penthouse in Manhattan with the not-so-friendly price tag of $39,000 per month, but she also is turning three of the four bedrooms into closets. A source told Page Six, “Rihanna hopes to make Manhattan her home. The apartment offers extra security and is convenient to go see her family in Barbados.” Now this we hope to see on Instagram.

H&M Gets an Isabel Marant Bump: Move over Colbert, there’s a new popularity-maker in town! H&M’s November numbers are out, and the retailer is reporting a much better month than they expected. One of the reasons: the debut of a capsule collection by French fashion house Isabel Marant in mid November. Stores that are over a year old saw a ten percent increase in sales over the previous November. We look forward to seeing all the Parisian chic looks this winter. [The Telegraph]
