When news broke that Rihanna would receive the Fashion Icon award at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards, there was one very important thing on everybody's minds -- what was she going to WEAR to the ceremony? But with the stylish star's recent (and tragic) disappearance from Instagram, there was no hope of even getting a glimpse of her look before red carpet time. So, begrudgingly, we all waited in anticipation the old-fashioned way... sans social media.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, after seeing Riri step out in a barely there, custom Adam Selman gown, covered head-to-toe in Swarovski crystals (literally, over 200,000 of them) and carrying a pink fur stole, it seems like this look was worth the wait.
Whether you love it or hate it, you cannot deny that the starlet is channeling some serious old Hollywood glamour. You might even say she was paying homage to Josephine Baker, who would be celebrating a birthday tomorrow (June 3.)
Of course, it wouldn't be Rihanna if it wasn't outrageous. In a move we can only assume sends an "I'm going to show my nipples whenever I want" message to the Instagram employees who disabled her account, the dress left, well, nothing to the imagination.
What do you think of her look? Sound off below!
