Style to Steal or Girl, Stop: Rihanna’s New Year’s Eve Ensemble

January 3, 2012  |  

Ringing in the New Year (alongside ex Matt Kemp on the low if I may add) at Diddy’s private estate in Miami Beach, Fla., the Bajan singer stepped out in all black everything (aside from her lips) and went for a more demure but risque ensemble for the NYE celebration over the weekend.

Rihanna wore a below the knee dress with long sleeves that was covered in wild leopard print. While that sounds really spunky and colorful on paper, the shade of black she rocked it in toned down such a ferocious design. HOWEVER, the dress was transparent all over in one form or another, from the completely see-through arms to the sheer bodice and skirt that exposed some skin and a not so hidden Areola ring. The top of the dress also gave folks at the party an opportunity to play peek-a-boo thanks to a large keyhole opening. To help the dress hug her figure, she threw a black belt around her waist, and paired it with strappy, pointed-toe heels. Her jewelry included a few necklaces, including a chain, some small studs and said scandalous boobie ring.

Can’t lie. I actually like the dress in all of its sheer glory. The keyhole detail and arms are what grab my attention and have me most intrigued by her look. However, I’m not feeling the witch heels or the fourth grade spelling bee hair. While the hair is appropriately up (high neck shirts and dresses need updos), the curls are a little too kiddish and could have looked better with pressed bangs and a romantic ponytail. Her makeup is still cute and what not, but she doesn’t even seem very comfortable in this fit, standing like someone who got lost on their way to a family gathering. I’d steal this dress for myself (but with the appropriate undergarments underneath), but she should stick to her more over-the-top and colorful meets nasty girl/Vanity 6-ish outfits.

What do you think?
