Rihanna To Light Up UNICEF's 2008 Snowflake

Rihanna To Light Up UNICEF's 2008 Snowflake

Rihanna keeps bundled up as she arrives at JFK airport in New York City after a flight from Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Later today (November 19), the 20-year-old Bajan beauty and Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini will light the UNICEF Snowflake at New York City’s Grand Army Plaza. Rihanna is also the global representative of the 2008 Gucci Campaign to Benefit UNICEF, which also launches worldwide today.

At 23 feet in diameter, over 28 feet in height and weighing 3,300 pounds, the UNICEF Snowflake is the largest outdoor chandelier of its kind. It’s adorned with 16,000 Baccarat crystal prisms and is a reminder of UNICEF’s commitment to do whatever it takes to save a child.

Ne-Yo will perform live during the ceremony before watching Rihanna and Frida flip the switch to illuminate the magnificent Snowflake, signifying the beginning of the gift-giving season.

    Rihanna needs to stop with the big ass hoops. She looks silly.

  • kathastic

    cool earings, look like they would hurt her ears by the end of the night though..

  • topper

    Rihanna is way overdone music and appearance wise. I’m tired of her.

  • black

  • N2

    2ND?

  • N2

    WHO IS THAT?

  • Venus

    Rihanna’s almost unrecognizable without makeup….

  • Venus

    ….She does have beautiful eyes, maybe the loveliest I’ve ever seen, but she needs a slew of makeup artists to make her pretty.

  • peanut

    Rhianna should be careful..someone might rip those earrings off her ears!

  • mook

    HOT but her outfits are usually ridiculous!

  • Wu

    Rihanna’s like a CK ad with really bad singing.

  • funk

    …ugly dude in a bad wig

  • MASTER P

    FUGHANNA STRIKES AGAIN!

  • MASTER P

    WATCH. THIS HOE WILL GET EAR JACKED.

  • cutie

    cute! :-)

  • just me

    I love Umbrella, but Rihanna is totally over-hyped.

  • Diddy

    Her vids look more like photoshoots than music vids….you know the bitch can’t sing.

  • e.

    How does she get through the metal detector?

  • crap

    damn! that’s one ugly man!

  • shadow

    Pretty girl but Rihanna is not a performer.

    She’s a marketing machine.

  • always

    Rihanna either looks like a hooker or a boy. No in between.

  • Hello

    Reyonce is overexposed. She brings out a record every year, cause her label is afraid that people will forget Rihanna…

  • DEJESUS

    THIS BITCH IS PLAYED OUT!

  • Marsha

    RiRi looks butcher than Grace Jones.

  • Katy

    I think Rhi is cute, but not her voice is not so good. If it wasn’t for her collaborations with other artists, she wouldn’t be where she is..

  • unti-celebrity

    this chick is hot no matter what every one here says love her

  • Stella

    Wait a minute…Rihanna a “Global Representative” for the children of the world??? Let’s count on the most materialistic girl knows SO much about disease and poverty and maybe she can save the children. Yeah OK NOT BUYING IT RIHANNA.

  • Nicole012

    She just had a concert here with Chris Brown in the Philppines! (:

  • rina

    great to see her again :)

    she had a concert here in manila just this sunday (nov 16)

  • Nuu

    I couldn’t agree more with # 24. She is a markeing machine and her label knows it.

    shame that looks overide talent these days. & trust tha Ri doesn’t have much talent…she should just go back to being the island girl again.

  • Nuu

    & why rihanna anyway? I think that there are better celebs who embody what it means to use their status to help the unfortunate. I don’t remember hearing/seeing any of Ri’s work.

  • anonymous

    She looks like a dude! She tried so much to be different she almost became a dude!

  • ♥zanessa-lova4life♥

  • woody allen
