Leave it to RiRi to make a sexy statement! The star left practically nothing to the imagination as she arrived to accept her award as a fashion icon in a sheer, embellished dress — she looked like a modern-day mermaid! Did you like her look or was it a little too over the top?
Just when you think you’ve seen it all from Rihanna she manages to totally shock us, yet again! The 26-year-old star, who was on hand to receive the fashion icon award, managed to totally steal the show as she arrived at the 2014 CFDA fashion awards at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on June 2 in NYC, where the 24-year-old put all of her assets on full display in an entirely sheerAdam Selman gown — it looks like she was inspired by Josephine Baker!
Rihanna: CFDA Awards Dress — Exposes Nipples & Boobs In Sheer Outfit:
Rihanna almost looked like a mermaid as she arrived in the slinky, sleeveless gown that fit her figure like a glove. The sparkling number was entirely sheer, showing off everything — from her tattoos to her nipples, there was nothing to hide here! Not only was the dress entirely sheer, but when the star turned around she showed off even more skin thanks to the backless silhouette.
RiRi added to the ensemble by sporting over-the-elbow gloves that matched the dress perfectly and she wore a pink Pologeorgis fur stole, which she gingerly draped over her arms — and the way it was placed it strategically covered her privates! A headpiece covered her hair and matched her dress, giving the whole outfit a very Great Gatsby vibe. Manolo Blahnik pumps, a pink ring by Jacob & Co. and rings and earrings by Paul Morelli finished off the outfit.
Rihanna — Inspired By Josephine Baker?
Not only did this look remind us of the late performer’s style, but in 2013 it was even rumored that RiRi would play her in a biopic. To deepen the connection, the star tweeted a photo wishing her a late happy birthday — along with a side-by-side of their images!

While there’s no denying the fact that RiRi is definitely a fashion icon, do you think she pushed the envelope a bit too far in her seriously sheer dress or was it totally chic?
