How many times have you said, “Rihanna is literally the only one who could pull this outfit off?” It’s a phrase that has been uttered many times by many people. Could you show up on the red carpet in a massive yellow dress that spawned pizza memes and still have it be considered flawless? No. Could you expose your nipples at a major fashion awards event and get away with it? Definitely not, but Rihanna can. Rihanna consistently takes pieces that should not work and makes them look amazing. It’s no wonder she made everyone want to dress like sexy Wednesday Addams thanks to her Fenty x Puma NYFW show.
Check out the outfits that only Rihanna could pull off:
One thing that Rihanna does consistently well is pull off lingerie or sleepwear as clothes. On another celeb, everyone would be asking, “Why did they not bother to get dressed before they hit the carpet?” When RiRi wears the look everyone says, “Leave it to Rihanna to make wearing a long silk robe look so chic.”
Rihanna has always taken fashion risks on the red carpet. This white dress has a Swan Lake vibe thanks to the high neckline and feathered bodice. It could have been too costume-y, but it doesn’t quite cross over that line.
Here is the aforementioned pizza meme look from the China: Through the Looking Glass Met Gala. It takes a special person to work a look this gigantic and Rihanna did. Even if you didn’t get it, you had to admit that she can work a 20-foot skirt like no one else.
Is this a poncho, flared tunic or an artist’s smock? Don’t know. An why does it have one printed sleeve? Who knows, who cares? We may not be able to figure out this outfit entirely, but we know RiRi looks amazing in it.
When Tom Ford showed nipple pasties on the runway, people wondered who would ever have the guts to wear the look, and who would actually make it look good. Of course Rihanna would be the one to work the edgy style.
