Rihanna thanked people for "believing" in her as she collected the Urban Luxe prize at the Fashion Awards 2019 for her luxury fashion brand, Fenty.
Janet Jackson made a surprise appearance to present the award to the singer turned entrepreneur, praising Rihanna's style while also expressing her respect for the Fenty founder.
"You're loved for your style, your boldness and for your strength as a woman," she said, appearing alongside Tyler The Creator.
"You're respected as a successful artist, fashion designer, activist, entrepreneur," Janet added.
Rihanna looked visibly shocked when she was presented with the honour and took to the stage.
The Bajan princess praised Stephanie Phair - the British Fashion Council's chairman - as well as her collaborator Jahleel Weaver.
"Thank you so much for believing in me as a young black woman and giving me the opportunity to do what I love the most," the award-winning fashion maven said.
It's also clear Riri was in good style company on the red carpet, as fellow A-listers turned heads too.
