Why did Rihanna bother to wear anything?
Rihanna was honored as 2014′s fashion icon at the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s fashion awards on Monday and she was practically naked.
“Fashion should never be frustrating,” Rihanna said during her acceptance speech. “It should be fun.”
It’s no doubt a stunning dress with more than 230,000 Swarovski crystals splattered all over, but… the look leaves little to the imagination.
RiRi’s very revealing outfit for the night highlighted one of the biggest fashion trends of the year: nudity.
“We definitely wanted to make it a little bit scandalous,” said Adam Selman, who’s been designing costumes for Rihanna since 2011. “The dress is just fishnet and crystals and a couple of fingers crossed. But fashion is about beauty, and the [female] body is part of that.”
Sisters Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen of The Row were also honored, winning the accessories award.
