Rihanna is on a roll. In addition to her album Anti being heralded as one of the most important records to come out this year, the pop star has proven herself to be a media mogul whose reach extends far beyond music. She has teamed up with Puma on her Fenty sportswear line (which showed at New York Fashion Week in February), designed a line of shoes for Manolo Blahnik, and teased a new makeup collection, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna. Today, the entrepreneur adds an eyewear line with Dior to her rapidly growing list of fashion feats.

Launching this June, Riri designed the line of futuristic sunglasses as part of her ambassadorship with the luxury label. According to Dior, the musician found inspiration with La Forge from Star Trek. In a statement, she said: "I've always been obsessed with his eyewear, and when I got to Dior and saw all the materials I could play with, it all just came together." The shades come in six different color hues: silver, pink, blue, green, and red, all retailing for $840—along with a special edition 24-karat gold-plated option for $1,950. Check out the different styles below.
