Last night, RiRi and her hair-do ventured to Soho where she stopped by the Derek Lam boutique opening to show her support for the designer and his new Crosby Street location. The singer joined Lam's closest friends and family including the likes of Anna Wintour, LA Reid, Nate Berkus, Lam's longtime partner Jan-Hendrik Schlottman, Phillip Lim, Derek Blasberg, Fern Mallis, and the crutches-adorned Anne Slowey.
