Rihanna is not exactly known for being shy about her body, but her outfit at last night's CFDA Awards was a little over the top, even for her: She was pretty much just wearing body glitter.
The singer, who was being honored as the 2014 Style Icon of the Year, walked the red carpet in little more than a sheer piece of fabric sprinkled with some glitter here and there, showing everything her mama gave her. Nipples and butt cheeks were on full display, and we were spared a full view of her "Birthday Cake" by little more than a very strategically placed strip of flesh-colored fabric.
The singer accessorized her scandalous look with a headscarf and gloves of the same material, a fur stole and large sparkly earrings.
"It's so naked," stylist Mel Ottenberg told Style.com. "I don't know if it's shocking — I'm with her all the time, so my shock gauge is off, but I told her that I thought she was ready for this dress a while ago, and that I wasn't. I'm the prude, and I'm just catching up."
"So many people didn't sleep last night," he continued. "I would say at least eight people worked nonstop from 8 p.m. last night to 3 p.m. today putting on the finishing touches."
Designer Adam Selman added, "We definitely wanted to make it a little bit scandalous. The dress is just fishnet and crystals and a couple of fingers crossed. But fashion is about beauty, and the [female] body is part of that."
"This was the perfect night do to something fun, and I wanted her to have something great that you couldn't find anywhere else in the world," Ottenberg said.
