What, like it’s hard?

What does one wear while accepting a humanitarian award at one of the most prestigious universities in the world?

If you're a fashion maven like Rihanna, it's something off the runway that's not yet available to the general public, likely by a pair of the industry's buzziest up-and-coming designers.

That's just what the pop star did when she arrived at Harvard to accept the illustrious honor from the school's foundation for intercultural and race relations, clad in a gray tweed ensemble by Monse's Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia (also the brand-new creative directors at Oscar de la Renta), which they showed just two weeks ago at New York Fashion Week.

“So I made it to Harvard,” said RiRi with a hair flip to open her speech. “Never thought I'd be able to say that in my life, but it feels good.”

Just yesterday it was announced that the Dior ambassador had teamed up with the French fashion house to donate a portion of the sales from the brand's “We Should All Be Feminists” tees (which retail for a cool $710 each) to the singer's Clara Lionel Foundation, which support education and the arts in Rihanna's native Barbados.

Being stylish and philanthropic — what, like it's hard?
