Isn’t there a law for indecent exposure? Pop star Rihanna continues to brake the law and stop traffic with her daring fashion sense.
The 26-year-old “What Now” singer popped up at last night’s 2014 CFDA Awards show at the Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center in New York City., dressed in a sparkly old school Hollywood dress with a matching pink fur stole, baring her ass-ets and banging body to the world.
She was covered, literally, in Swarovski crystals, more than 200,000 of them…even her head piece had crystals.
Rihanna was definitely channeling Josephine Baker and rivaling the dress Marilyn Monroe wore to sing president John F. Kennedy happy birthday.
Despite her lack of pasties, Rihanna was honored with the 2014 Fashion Icon Award, which was presented to the singer by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
Upon accepting the award, Rihanna spoke of her origins in Barbados; “I didn’t have a lot of access to fashion.” She continued, “Fashion has always been my defense mechanism.” She told the crowd that as a child, she lived by these words: “She can beat me, but she can’t beat my outfit.”
“I can compensate for all my weaknesses with my fashion,” she said. “There are rules, but rules are meant to be broken.”
