The singer is the first to wear pieces from Alexander Wang's upcoming collaboration with H&M, which doesn't land in stores until November 6th.

There are many perks to being a celebrity - free holidays, free drinks, free cars, free clothes (you get the picture) - and Rihanna seems to reap the benefits more than any other celeb.

Her latest reward for fame? High street clothes that us normal people can't even buy yet.

The singer took to the streets of New York yesterday in a full look from Alexander Wang's collaboration with H&M, which doesn't go on sale to the public for another two months, on November 6th.

She's currently in the city to attend numerous New York Fashion Week shows.

Admittedly, the 'Wang'-adorned leggings and long-sleeve crop top combo isn't for everyone - you've got to have to confidence and body of Rihanna to really pull it off - but it's an excellent publicity technique from the young designer, who showed his spring/summer 2015 mainline collection at New York Fashion Week on Saturday.

The outfit, combined with a recent 'tease' by H&M, implies that the collection is going to be sportswear-inspired.

Riri did seem a little self conscious of the camel toe-effect seam on the crotch of the leggings though, and wisely used her Gucci bag as a modesty shield.

The collection will be the latest in a long and succesful line of of designer collaborations the Swedish high street giant has undertaken - previous designers have included Versace, Marni, Lanvin and Isabel Marant.

The full collection will be available in 250 H&M stores worldwide, and online.
