The singer and her inimitable outfit were the highlight of the ceremony at the CFDA Fashion Awards.
If you missed the news about the stars’ outfits at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards ceremony, don’t feel bad – we’re here to tell you about them! In fact, only one celebrity deserves a mention, and that is Rihanna.
The singer appeared in a revealing sequined dress that revealed quite a bit, including her underwear, the manufacturer of which had clearly saved on the amount of fabric. The dress was made of mesh fabric and (get ready!) 216,000 Swarovski crystals.
Yes, Rihanna walked the carpet, quite literally drowning in crystals. She put the finishing touches to her outfit with a diamond and imperial topaz ring from Paul Morelli and diamond earrings with a moonstone in an unusual cat’s eye color – a limited edition also from Paul Morelli.
Adam Selman, the designer of the dress, reported that making a revealing dress was not easy: So many people stayed up last night! I’d say at least eight people worked nonstop from 8 p.m. last night until 3 p.m. today to polish the dress.
