The first thing we noticed, of course, was Rihanna's short hair, which she chopped off just a few days ago and officially debuted on Thursday's red carpet.
The 24-year-old's close-cropped 'do instantly reminded us of Halle Berry in the 2000s; in other words: we love it. As for the frock, her white tie-back gown is perfect glamour, like a Grammys dress or an Oscars dress, draping behind her as she strode into perform (and invariably change into a ton of other outfits.)
