She’s overtaken Madonna and Beyonce, who previously topped the list. Rihanna has an estimated fortune of £471m ($600m) with the bulk of that coming from her Fenty beauty range. Her rise to the top of the list has been driven by her business mind-set and intelligence in launching Fenty Beauty make-up brand.
