Rihanna lit up the red carpet in a completely sheer gown (with nearly nothing underneath) to accept her Fashion Icon Award at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards. Joining her in the red carpet slayage was Lupita Nyong’o, Solange, Jennifer Hudson and a handful of other YBF faves. Check Rih and her nips plus the other fab red carpet pics inside…
THE CFDA Fashion Awards are a major night in the fashion world, right up there with the Met Ball and the YBF chicks and gents in attendance did not disappoint.
Rihanna proves why she’s deserving of the Fashion Icon Award tonight when she shut down the red carpet in Alice Tully Hall at New York City’s Lincoln Center.
Rih dropped her pink wig and dazzled head-to-toe with 216,000 Swarovski crystals in a custom hand-embellished Adam Selman fishnet dress almost completely naked underneath (only wearing a thong), leaving her nips and her ASSets on full display (typical Rih). The Fashion Icon completed her look with a blinged out Adam Selman headscarf and gloves, a pink fur stole to cover her lady parts, a Jacob & Co. ring and a smokey eye with soft pink lip.
Chick loves to push the limit. Not mad.
The fashionable one accepted her award from VOGUE's Editor-In-Chief and fashion icon Anna Wintour.
This was the "view" of her walk to the podium. If you got it....flaunt it.
Hey Rihanna....you just won the "icon" award. What are you gonna do next?
After landing her first role in Star Wars:Episode VII since her Oscar winning debut, Lupita Nyong’o got chic in a colorful custom Suno printed crop top and cropped trousers.The uber stylish actress finished her look velvet colored Sophia Webster pointed heels and Jennifer Fisher jewelry.
Seems Solange Knowles has put CARTERGATE behind her (because Rachel Roy was definitely in attendance) after she shimmered in a pewter Calvin Klein gown at the CFDA Fashion Awards. Solo was giving some Diana Ross tease with her fluffed fro and bright pink lip.
Solo posed it up with Calvin Klein’s creative director Francisco Costa.
And the "Losing You" singer was spotted leaving the fashion event with her man Alan Ferguson, stopping quickly for a selfie with a fan. Nice.
Jennifer Hudson stunned in a black sculpted one-shouldered Kaufman Franco gown. The “Walk It Out” singer looked fabulous in her sexy pixy cut and red lippie.
