Last night Rihanna was honored at the CFDA awards for being 2014’s style icon of the year. When she stepped on the red carpet she made sure all eyes were on her the entire night and wore one of the most jaw dropping dresses we’ve seen in a while. The sequined dress was made by designer Adam Selman, which, according to the designer, “is just fishnet and crystals and a couple of fingers crossed.” Bad Gal Ri Ri was dripped head-to-toe in 230,000 Swarovski stones, the see- through gown left nothing to the imagination, the r&b singer only wearing a thong under the dress. While accepting her award, Rihanna told the audience,

“As long as I can remember, fashion has been my defnese mechanism. As a child I remember thinking, ‘She can beat me but she cannot beat my outfit.'”
