Rihanna was the talk of the town at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards at Lincoln Center in New York the other day. She came in and truly made a statement! The fab chyc rocked a see-through dress. Baring it all is nothing new to Ri-Ri though. She turned heads in a sheer custom-made dress designed by Adam Selman. The dress, which was covered in 216,000 Swarovski crystals barely covered Rihanna’s breasts. The singer wore a nude thong underneath. The Pour It Up singer also wore a Adam Selman headscarf, gloves, a pink fur stole to cover her lady parts and a Jacob & Co. ring.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour presented RiRi with the 2014 Fashion Icon Award.

When Rihanna accepted the award she said:

“Growing up fashion was a defense mechanism. As a child I remember saying: she can beat me but she can’t beat my outfit.”

Other red carpet arrivals gave us a glimpse of what some of the other stars were wearing, including Solange Knowles, Tyson Beckford, Cicely Tyson, Jennifer Hudson, Chrissy Teigen, Iman, Lupita N’youngo amongst others.
