Rihanna Keeps It Elegant While Naked at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Leave it to Rihanna to always keep people’s tongues wagging. The popstar, who recently won a Fashion Icon award at the CFDA Fashion Awards held in new York last Tuesday, attended the event in a super sheer dress that kept her tits and butt cheeks on full display.

Yes, she was that daring. But you know what? It was all good. For some reason, she was able to pull it off. Rihanna’s “naked” frock was decorated with hundreds of thousands of sparkly Swarovski crystals, so you can understand why she didn’t mind all the exposure.

We can’t say we’re down with the outfit 100%, but we do love the fact that she chose a sequined head wrap and a fur boa as accessories. Somehow, the add-ons made her appear elegant in a certain way, instead of just plain, er, naked.

Well, any thoughts? Fantastic or a total failure?

Can’t deny it. She looks good. And we do love the matching sparkly head wrap. Adding the furry extra was a good move too, because it helped her “cover up” a little.

If you want to channel Rihanna’s CFDA style here, you actually can. But please do yourself a favor by at least wearing a slip underneath. Or simply, go with a sequined dress that is already lined. Here’s  a great option to try from Adrianna Papell:

Once you have the dress in order, wrap a sequined scarf around your head. If you can find one that comes in a stretchy material, then so much the better. If you’re too lazy to create the headwrap on your own, you can also go with a ready-made headpiece that’s decorated with sequins:

Of course, some DIY won’t hurt either. You can buy a ready made turban and decorate it with sequins or crystals. Here’s a very affordable piece from Amazon that you can use as base:
