Rihanna Stuns In Crystal Covered Gown At 2014 CFDA Awards
by Alley Olivier
It is of no surprise that Rihanna was awarded the Icon Award at the 2014 Council of Fashion Designers of America awards last night (June 2). Truly representing the nature of the award to always push the boundaries of fashion, Rih Rih proved just that by arriving in a sheer, slip gown covered in 216, 000 Swarvoski crystals designed by Adam Selman. Wearing only a G-string underneath, attendees had quite an eyeful of the star’s bottom and chest glimmering in the light. Her ensemble was completed with matching elbow-length gloves, metallic head scarf and light, fur scarf.
The pop star joins the likes of Lady Gaga, Johnny Depp, Kate Moss and Nicole Kidman who have all received the Fashion Icon Award. Whether it is her methodical nip slips or pink hair, the Bajan singer earned her award. “I can compensate for all of my weaknesses with fashion. Fashion should never be frustrating, it should be fun,” she said when accepting the honor.”As long as I can remember, fashion has been my defense mechanism.”
