Token bad girl Rihanna, was honored at Monday night’s Council of Fashion Designers of America awards as 2014’s Fashion Icon. When it comes to Rihanna, we’ve grown to expect an extreme element of sex appeal. The stunning pop star’s own Instagram account was recently shut down after she shared a steamy topless photo with her fans. So why should we be surprised that RiRi showed up to last night’s event completely nude under a sheer, sparkly gown? We shouldn’t. And we’re not. But there’s a whole lot to be said about showing us something we’ve seen before and still taking our breath away.
The “We Found Love” singer was presented her award by iconic Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who said with Rihanna, “the point is to be audacious, even jaw-dropping or button-pushing – and yes, we know she enjoys pushing buttons – while remaining true to yourself.” Little did she know she’d be staring right at Rihanna’s nipples while speaking about her constant ability to draw attention. The crowd favorite had a lot to say about fashion while accepting her award. “I think fashion has been an outlet for me to express myself, to speak up, to say who I am and to be very loud about it at times, and I just like to have fun with it.” You’re showing us you, all right. All of you. And we couldn’t be more thankful.
Here’s a look at some of Rihanna’s sexiest photos from the CFDA awards.
