Rihanna was honored last night at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York with the Fashion Icon Award, so of course she had to wear something stunning. The CFDAs are when all the celebrities and fashion people come out trying to look their most fashiony, and the woman being awarded for being the most fashionable definitely has to make the biggest impact. It’s a tall order to fill, but no one need have worried; Rihanna had this handled.
Rihanna just showed up, like, totally naked. Nips and ass were on full display, but she still managed to look gorgeous and elegant in a long, shimmery, completely sheer Adam Selman gown with matching gloves, scarf, and a pink fur stole. As much as I miss the pink pixie cut she’s been wearing lately, Rihanna looks completely amazing. And I love that she wore this dress to hang out with Anna Wintour.
I’ve been pretty tired of the sheer trend for a while now, especially when we’re talking about awkward sheer panels. But Rihanna’s dress is somehow working for me. I think it’s the fact that it’s just completely naked instead of faux naked. Gwyneth Paltrow might show off her side butt, but Rihanna is just like, “Fuck it, I’m going naked.” (I imagine she sings the last word.)
According to Red Carpet Fashion Awards, Rihanna’s look is covered in more than 200,000 Swarovski crystals. Her jewelry is by Paul Morelli.
With all the sparkles and diamonds and fur going on, it’d be easy to get distracted away from Rihanna’s face, but she’s not letting that happen. Her makeup looks completely fantastic. Only Rihanna could go basically topless and still have everyone staring directly at her face.
