The annual show, hosted this year by director and screenwriter John Waters, draws a mix of fashion insiders and Hollywood. This year, Rihanna was clearly the big name, along with an even newer fashion star: Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, who presented the womenswear award. Others in attendance included actresses Marion Cotillard, Blake Lively and Emmy Rossum. models Naomi Campbell and Coco Rocha, singer/actress Jennifer Hudson, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour were also there.

Speaking of Rihanna before the show, designer Zac Posen called the pop star a fashion risk-taker, who skillfully melds red-carpet glamour with a rebellious streak. Rihanna’s choice for Monday’s event of a sparkling, revealing, body-hugging gown, designed by Adam Selman, epitomized Posen’s description.

“She takes risks and she marches to her own drum and she knows what she likes,” Posen told The Associated Press in an interview. He recalled meeting the singer at his studio before she launched her first album.

“She was a fashion world novice then,” he said, “but obviously she had looks and confidence and little-girl charm. All the ingredients were there for her to be a huge superstar: ambition, strength, and also vulnerability.” Rihanna’s occasional use of shock value, he said, “has kept her current, and balanced how classically beautiful she is.”

Rihanna also has a great appreciation for designers, Posen added: “That’s why people love to dress her.”

    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).
