Rihanna’s stylist Jahleel Weaver: I’m blessed to be able to say that and to go to work every day and see black people

OHMYGOSSIP — Rihanna’s stylist feels “blessed” to work for the singer. Jahleel Weaver, who serves as Rihanna’s stylist and as a junior creative director at Fenty, has revealed he considers himself to be fortunate to be part of one of the few brands that sees black people as a priority.

He explained: “I’m blessed to be able to say that and to go to work every day and see black people.”

Weaver also revealed that Rihanna’s Puma collection was inspired by what the chart-topping singer-songwriter has seen and experienced during her own life. Speaking to Women’s Wear Daily (WWD), he shared: “She always says the first woman she saw put on make-up was a black woman – her mother.

“It was natural for her to obviously appeal to that, but also to appeal to all women. Is she the first person ever to offer dark skin foundations? No. But is she the first person to maybe market to them in a very long time?

“I feel like there are some companies now that are seeing there’s a demand for this and saying, ‘Oh, well we’ve had this forever.’ But it’s like, did you not market to them because you thought you wouldn’t make money?

“But I’m happy that she started this conversation, to say [to the beauty and fashion industries] ‘Hey. These are people and we have a lot of money to spend and if you show up for them, they’ll show up for you.'”
