All eyes on Rihanna! She was honored with the Fashion Icon 2014 at the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards yesterday. While Anna Wintour was presenting the award, she was touched upon by Rihanna’s excellent fashion and quoted, “that incredible style can help take a talented young woman from a small island to the world stage, and along the way spark a lot of conversation about elegance and empowerment.”
In a tantalizing sheer backless dress, Rihanna drafted the fashion edicts with a bespoke wild outfit by Adam Selman consisting a total of 216,000 Swarovski crystals. Nothing left to the imagination? Well, we got a thrill by seeing what RiRi can get away with! We love the matching turban that left the emphasis on her beautiful face. Smokey eyes and minimal make-up completed her eye-catching look. As she posed for the paparazzi, she was shining bright like a diamond!
ELLE UK rightly pointed out that the council has picked a winner whose sartorial choices have had an undeniable influence on popular culture. We remember the time when she wore Manish Arora Collection for a concert in London, absolutely stunning! The Bad Girl expresses herself through her experimental style. Her rebellious streak and risk-taking edge has left us mesmerized.
WE long, reminisce and idealize her bold sense of fashion! Do you?
