NEW YORK (AP) — Rihanna, an undisputed fashion star of the moment, was the big draw Monday at the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America awards, which also honor the year’s top designers.

The singer and pop culture star, dressed in a see-through fishnet dress, gloves and headscarf embellished with thousands of crystals, was awarded the group’s 2014 Fashion Icon Award. Previous honorees have been Lady Gaga, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman and Johnny Depp.

Also being honored at the glamorous ceremony at New York’s Lincoln Center was designer Tom Ford, who won the CFDA’s lifetime achievement award. The prestigious Founder’s Award went to Bethann Hardison, a former model and modeling agent who has been a vocal champion for diversity on runways. (She is also actor Kadeem Hardison’s mother.)

Joseph Altuzarra won CFDA’s womenswear award while the menswear award went to designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, the duo behind the label Public School. Sisters Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen won the accessories award. CFDA’s International award went to Raf Simons, of Dior.

    Surprise. Surprise. Rhianna is nude. Who in Hollywood isn’t nude because they are behind on their Hollywood mansion mortgage payments?

  2. I have no problem with nudity, but that’s not a dress even if its sparkly, expensive and Rihanna is quite pretty, that is not a dress. That’s lingerie.

    She’s no different than most of the female artist out today. I agree ALL of our artist need to learn to be classy but this is what you ge.t

    This cover-up, not dress, is all ass and no class. Is this what young ladies aspire to be like? I guess there’s nothing like free publicity

  5. At least her boobs look real. These days so many celebs have fake breast implants, and you can see them coming from a mile away

  6. If this fool could get away with walking around completely naked, we’d never see her with a stitch of fabric laying against her ass. Why doesn’t she just go into the porn industry? She’s done everything she can to allow the public to stare right up into the eye of the beast without getting arrested for lewd and lascivious behavior. She’s and exhibitionist. Plain and simple.

    so I guess talent doesn’t count for as much as how much of a skank you can portray, I long for the days of class and elegance associated with celebrities

      Amen to that, and for people to stop saying you are hating on everything. Some people just like real/true style and elegance(some are naturals, some are not).
