If you’ve been following Rihanna for the past decade then you know it’s in her nature to steal the show with her amazing wardrobe. Not only does she manage to get Best Dressed every time, but she leaves the world still talking about her ensemble months after. Anyone who is anyone that’s into fashion, is a fan of Rihanna’s versatile looks — follow along as we recap the top five reasons why:
5. 2016 Lionel Richie Tribute Event
Even though Rihanna did not technically walk the red carpet, she still managed to steal the show after her wonderful performance. Twitter could not stop talking about how, if anyone else wore these pointed red trainers, they would be dragged for filth. Only Rihanna could wear such a shoe with a beautiful floral gown and be praised for it. She’s a rockstar, and this is what rockstars do.
4. 2015 Grammys
As the fashion icon that she is, it was no surprise that Rihanna stole the show this night while attending the Grammy’s. Rihanna served a natural beat and pink lips with a big pink pouf dress by Giambattista Valli. This look led to one of the infamous memes of Peter Griffin from Family Guy, which Rihanna promoted for laughs as well. Another night in “histoRih” Rihanna went down as a top 10 trending topic — she slays.
3. 2017 Met Gala
Another moment in time — Rihanna slays as the undisputed queen of the Met Gala. The internet doesn’t agree too often, but this time around they did. Miss Robyn Rihanna Fenty took the night by storm when she showed up in her gorgeous ornate Comme des Garçons dress, completed with a top knot, beautiful eye shadow to match, and strapped stiletto heels. Rihanna’s crown as Best Dressed became much tighter on the top of her head — she remains queen of Met Gala.
2. 2015 Met Gala
The night Rihanna showed up on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in an imperial yellow, fur-trimmed cape that was embroidered with scrolls of flora and a beautiful headpiece. Again, Rihanna stole the show, excluding every other celebrity that were included. She really understood the meaning of the theme that year. This Chinese couture gained more attention than they ever would because of Rihanna. The dress did not wear her, she wore it.
1. 2014 CFDA Awards
Hands down, this moment goes down in history as the most fashionable moment Rihanna has ever had in her career. Not only is she confident and proud of showing off her tits, but this time she was actually honored for them. This is the night Bad Gal RiRi won Fashion Icon award; strutting her stuff in her sheer crystal gown designed by Adam Selman. The world was shook, and it was her pleasure to shake them.
There is no other female artist to take measures the way Rihanna does. She is truly God’s gift to every fashion designer; she makes everything she wear look ten times better than they would on the average human being. She is a goddess, she is a queen, she is a fashion icon, she is Rihanna.
