“Holy crap” seems to be the general consensus in the Pret-a-Reporter newsroom regardingRihanna‘s CFDA outfit, a custom, sheer Adam Selman number made from 216,000 Swarovski crystals, that — in true Rihanna fashion — leaves little to the imagination.
The performer is set to receive a fashion icon award at what is widely considered the “Oscars of fashion,” taking place Monday night at New York’s Lincoln Center.
Selman has been designing costumes for Rihanna since 2011 and debuted his own line at New York Fashion Week in September 2013. His glittering, handmade CFDA creation includes gloves and a head scarf that channel famed jazz-age dancer Josephine Baker, who coincidentally would be celebrating her 108th birthday Monday.
We’re betting that she’d approve of the look, too.
