Not only is Rihanna picking up “Icon” awards for her music, but the beauty was most recently tagged as a Fashion Icon at the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards last night. She picked up the Fashion Icon of the Year award for her style moves, and proved why she is an icon by leaving jaws dropped on the red carpet. Ri Ri wore a custom Adam Selman gown that was covered in Swarovski crystals, and as you can see, was completely see-through. While she wore a nude thong underneath the dress, she ditched any pasties and let it all hang out. To accessorize, she went for a sparkling doo-rag (you know it looks like one) and a fur stole.
When speaking on the importance of fashion in her life, Rihanna said that fashion is “an outlet for me to express myself, to speak up, to say who I am and to be very loud about it at times. She added that when it comes to her style and fashion in general, “There are rules! But rules are meant to be broken.”
And she was not kidding. The star is basically known at this point for sharing every nook and cranny with us, and while I wasn’t crazy about seeing her breast for the umpteenth time at first, after taking a few glances more at this look, I will say that she does look pretty amazing. I would never wear anything like this, but it’s definitely this woman’s style.
But opinions have been mixed. People either love it or loathe it.
“Sorry… What happened to morals! Leave SOMETHING for the imagination!”
“Nice dress with a liner inside but like this im ashamed as a woman to see how we going”
“This look reminds me of a modern day Josephine Baker, the dress would have been just as gorgeous with a nude liner.”
“She looks amazing stop hating!!!!!”
“No one could pull off this look except for her. If my body was that amazing, I’d do it too!”
