Rihanna's Infamous CFDA Dress Inspired By... RuPaul's 'Drag Race'?

Posted: Updated:

In the words of the iconic RuPaul, "We're all born naked and the rest is drag."


Rihanna was certainly showing a bit of skin with her stunning gown at the CFDA Awards last Monday -- but what you might not realize is the "Drag Race" connection to the look.

Adam Selman, the dress's designer, Instagrammed this video of his team meticulously putting together the gown before Rihanna's big reveal. And what's blasting in the background? None other than Ru's hit "Glamazon." The designer also tagged @rupaulsdragrace and hashtagged the post #glamazon.

If there's one diva on the scene right now deserving of the title Glamazon, who else could it possibly be but Rihanna?
