Lets begin with Bad gal Riri. Shall we?

She was honoured with the Fashion Icon Award at the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards some hours ago and Rihanna made sure all eyes were on her at the bash.

The Pour it up singer glittered in a racy sheer embellished halter dress to show off every inch of her slim figure.

The naughty outfit – custom made by designer Adam Selman and comprised of a total of 216,000 Swarovski crystals  – left nothing to the imagination as Rihanna took a star turn on the carpet in her backless dress.

For her make-up, the starlet opted for a smokey eye which she finished off with nude lips.

What are your thoughts on Rihanna’s outfit, and the award show?

I love Riri’s ensemble, I would not wear it. I would not let my kids wear it either, but I think she looked beautiful,  proper underwear would have ruined the entire purpose of the outfit. I also think the designer is a very talented man, and Rihanna achieved what she wanted-to be the centre of attraction-

I would probably feel differently if another person wore this, but Riri has carved out a niche for herself and  made it clear that with her there are no limits. She has earned the right to wear this, a nipple covering would have been great though.

I was also very surprised that Mary Kate & Ashley won the accessory designer of the year award,over Tom Ford for their collection, the Row .

Keep refreshing  360nobs Style.
