No stranger to a bit of attention on the red carpet, Rihanna has become the talk of the town because of her barely-there fashion choice.

Rihanna might be too risqué for Instagram but that didn't stop her from showing off a whole lot of skin on the red carpet at this year's Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards held in New York City this week.

Honoured with a Fashion Icon Award, Rihanna turned heads as she arrived at the ceremony in her sheer custom-made Adam Selman gown.

The more than 216,000 Swarovski crystals used in the gown weren't quite enough to take away the attention from Rihanna's slim physique, which was clearly visible underneath.

Wearing the glistening halter dress with nothing but a skin-coloured G-string, RiRi's nipples were exposed but she didn't seem at all perturbed by all the attention.

A large fur wrap, as well as her many tattoos, were the only distraction from her clearly exposed body beneath the fishnet veil of her sheer dress.

However, a sparkling head scarf, along with beautifully applied smoky eyes and flawless makeup, brought attention to the star's striking face.
