Rihanna Honored as Fashion Icon at CFDA Awards

Rihanna

Rihanna refuses to be censored. The risk-tasking fashionista stepped out nearly naked to the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards at New York’s Lincoln Center on Monday.

She turned heads in a sheer sparkly dress that exposed her breasts with only a nude G-string underneath. The custom-made show-stopper was designed by Adam Selman and covered with 216,000 Swarovski crystals.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour presented the “Stay” singer with the 2014 Fashion Icon Award. Previous honorees have included Lady Gaga, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman, and Johnny Depp.

“Growing up fashion was a defense mechanism,” said Rihanna while accepting the honor. “As a child I remember saying: she can beat me but she can’t beat my outfit.”

Solange attended her first red carpet event since the infamous elevator video, rocking a sequined Calvin Klein dress and big hair, while Jennifer Hudson was chic in a black gown by KaufmanFranco.

    what a whore. I cant believe I once considered her my favorite artist. I Know she never wanted to be a role model for young girls but she is and I don’t think I would let my daughter look up to her as a role model even if she was full clothed. She is such a trashy person now.

    @dreo, If you want a role model, then go home and look at your mother! Life is too short to be subjected to the rules of what “society” says is acceptable. Its 2014, stop living in the past. Naked is the new black; didn’t Beyoncé wear a sheer black dress at the Met Gala? Yea.

    @meme, And what do you look like? Your pic is of Rihanna. Honey you’re flaunting RIHANNA as if she’s you. You’re weak, and have to use RIHANNA to shade someone else. I HIGHLY DOUBT you’re trumping Beyoncé NOR Rihanna in looks baby. Sit down.

    @meme,
    Let’s not act like If Beyonce wore a dress with her nipples showing would make more noise than Rihanna. Which none of any NEW outlest spoke about this like CNN, FOX News etc.Beyonce would have been on ALL those news shows. Some artist have to to this for attention i.e. (Rihanna and Miley) side note even Miley would have made every news channel. And some artist don’t i.e.(Beyonce).

    @BEDSTUYFLY, My mother would be a better role model than this bitch. Yes I know the female can be sexy and beautiful because I am man who thinks the female body is amazingly beautiful but when it is shown to the world like this it just seems trashy and distasteful. I think if Rihanna herself was a mother she wouldn’t be dressing this way because its not what a little girl should be looking up to and if you think its ok, than I think you should rethink the type of women you see as role models.

    @dreo, this is the problem with this society especially the women…the women is naked, yes indeed. but she’s a whore and trashy because of that? she’s in a dress none the less. its her fashion her art and plus many designers and artists view the body as gods greatest muse

    people should for at least once think outside the box and respect something taboo

    @empathy,

    Oh, like “the emperor has new clothes” outside the box. There is nothing new or different about what Rhianna is doing. Women with little class or self-respect have done this (decided they were a piece of meat) since time began.

    @dreo, so, if she’s an international artist she gotta be a role model? I don’t think so, and I just think she looked gorgeous and she’s not naked, she’s just sexy!

    karamelkisses Reply:

    @meme, so you consider a “woman” walking around in public w/ a nude thong on a queen? is that what we’re doing now? really? girl bye! a rihanna world may be what you live in … talentless, directionless and MANless but not me & not a lot of other truly powerful women. what’s crazy is at 26, she still has to pull stunts like this to get attention. miley does this type of sh*t because she’s young & wants attention but has some vocal chops. who am I kidding, rihanna does this because she wants attention but has little to nil talent. it’s not hard to figure out why chris, drake, matt kemp, drake, asap rocky, chris & drake all ran through her … there’s no mystery. she puts everything she has on full display for the world to see.

    @karamelkisses, Well, Beyonce could put out a video called Partition wearing a thong and talking about being Monica Lewinsky’d on or wearing a thong and slapping her ass wanting to be loved by a ghost or talking about how much she loves a blow job! So what’s Beyonce excuse for putting these ultra sexual videos and songs out? Bye Felicia! RiRi have you all in your feelings over a dress and it’s so obvious! lol!

    No, honey.It’s Beyonce’s world Forbes and Time Mag agrees. The Most Powerful Artist in the World. This was nothing but a seeking attention move. Basically, a Miley but with less effect.

    rihanna stans need to think seriously what would you think if you seen a non famous female walking down the street dressed like this

    elle Reply:

    @CARLOS, i don’t know that many people that would leisurely walk down the street in a some odd thousand dollar swaroski dress so that might be hard for anyone to visualize

    [Reply]

    Deejay Reply:

    @CARLOS, That’s the point dummy. She’s not a “non famous” person. She is in fact a highly famous person which gives her the warrant to dress as provocatively and over the top as she feels. She’s not a normal person.
    Which is why she is being honored as a fashion icon by the most prestigious fashion organization in the world. And you’re just sitting home in your, I’m guessing Old Navy tee shirt and cargo pants, looking basic and non famous.
    Deal with it.

    meme Reply:

    @CARLOS, I’m sorry but if I saw a normal person on the street dress the michael jackson or madonna did I would think its weird too. These ppl are entertainers not normal ppl. Rihanna is in a position like no other current artist….she is closest thing the new era have to being legendary. She can just do normal sh*t anymore. Embrace it and shut up

    Mya Reply:

    @meme,

    LMAO @ Rihanna being the closes thing to “legendary” LMAO! Attention seeking for the things they lack in. Nothing legendary about her.

    keep doing you rihanna! 26 and walking around in public in a thong and people wonder why you can’t keep a man. drake’s mother is old school jewish, rihanna isn’t getting past the front door. but anything for attention right? when you have NO talent, you have to sell something I guess. miley does sh*t like this for giggles but has a vocal ability. but rihanna HAS to do this so she doesn’t fade into oblivion (tick tock). #Godhelpthisnewgeneration

    @., thank you for emphasizing my point. rihanna at this point is 1/2 inch from being labeled a stripper. just like rihanna, the strippers didn’t make it past the front door either. a man wants someone that will add to him & not be an embarassement. boys f*ck anything that will oblige and rihanna does alot of obliging. #goodbye

    I guess we’re in a generation where people think “yolo” very seriously. Such a shame. I’m not surprised after watching her video pour it up I knew this was the next step; showing her tits and ass. But she can keep doing that, but for how long will it last? Eventually she will lose all curiousity ‘cuz everyone already saw everything of her.

    Rhianna is just another in a long line of classless children who would be considered another $2.00 whore were it not for all the publicity you classless media folks give her.

  27. H. Wells

    If she had to depend on folks like me for her to make a living selling music, doing concerts and videos, she would be on welfare. I wouldn’t pay 50 cents to see anything she does. I prefer people who have a little class and a modicum of moral integrity.
