Rihanna Bares It All At The CFDA Awards –Literally!


When all of your body parts are still perky and tight, yes you can afford to go naked/wear see-through dresses to a red carpet event like Rihanna did today at the CFDA Awards where she received the Fashion Icon Award. In true Rihanna style, she turned the place inside out in a daring number ala Grace Jones, Madonna, Cher and many others before her. It might be safe to say she pushed the envelope farther though. Perhaps inspired by Elizabeth Berkely’s outfit from the movie Showgirls. Well, the stakes to stay relevant and current is now much higher for celebrities in the saturated social media/digital age we live in now. Rihanna definitely got our attention with this one.

Designer Zac Posen called the pop star a fashion risk-taker, who skillfully melds red-carpet glamour with a rebellious streak. ‘She takes risks and she marches to her own drum and she knows what she likes,’ Posen told The Associated Press in an interview. ‘It’s been an incredible journey.’

You almost forget that Lady Gaga once received the same award! Kudos Rihanna! For more red carpet looks see Shoeholics coverage.
