Rihanna's New NYC Apartment Will Boast 1 Bedroom for Her ... & 3 for Her Clothes

The pop star's new Manhattan home will offer plenty of room for garments, if not guests

Apartment dwellers – and plenty of home owners, for that matter – know that closet space can be hard to come by. So, if you’re a clothes horse, you get inventive. Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw used her oven to store shoes. We’ve heard tales of women renting storage lockers for out-of-season apparel.

Or, if you’re Rihanna, you simply convert three of your four bedrooms into walk-in closets.

Page Six reports the pop star’s new duplex penthouse in Manhattan is undergoing renovations to hold her literally rooms full of fashion items. We suppose if you can spend $39,000 a month, you would have plenty of clothing, costumes, shoes and other accessories to store. Of course, when you consider the tiny size and skimpy fabrics the singer often favors, it’s hard to imagine they’d take up all that much space.

Anyway, according to the newspaper column, Rihanna’s place is on two floors with views of the World Trade Center and a wraparound terrace.

“Rihanna hopes to make Manhattan her home,” a source tells Page Six. “The apartment offers extra security and is convenient to go see her family in Barbados.”

And, apparently, for serious shopping sprees.
