She is known both for her successful and the unfortunate fashion moments, but with looks like this, Rihanna manages to stand out and win the most demanding fashionista. The singer, who is in New York, visited the hot spot of the city, the restaurant Butter, with a simple but quirky jersey dress, with the signature of Helmut Lang. The dress, in bright fuchsia color, which RiRi combined with intriguing accessories such as the white Christian Louboutin heels, but also with the black and white striped Balmain clutch.
The sporty- chic look of the superstar hugs impeccably her killer curves while the high slit skirt of the maxi dress perfectly highighted her legs, given the necessary sexy twist, in a dress, otherwise simple. As sexy, and simple as well as chic , with that appearance perfectly justified the title of fashion icon, she was bestowed, not long ago, by the Association of American Designers.
On 2 June, the eyes of fashionistas around the world turned to New York, specifically, the Lincoln Centre, where took place the Association of American Designer awards, aka CFDA Awards. The glamorous ceremony, known as the ‘Oscars of Fashion‘ were, once again, very interesting (now, there has been no media that has not been dealt with in a transparent dress of Rihanna), while the people who were awarded were indisputably the most discussed (and this) year.
The big winner of the evening. The superstar left, taking with her the prize for the fashion icon of the year. Of course, as usual, the singer from Barbados manages to strongly be discussed, for the revealing outfit. Rihanna appeared with a transparent dress and scarf covered with crystals a barely-there mesh of 230,000(!) Swarovski crystals designed by Adam Selman to the awards show.
The designer won the prestigious Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, for its overall contribution to the world of fashion.
‘It’s been a wonderful 25 years and I could have never achieved it without all the people in this room,’ he said while collecting the prize.
The designer behind the house Altuzarra was named Womenswear Designer of the Year. Altuzarra has already been proposed for CFDA 3 times while in 2011 he was the one who won the prize of the Union in order to strengthen the brand. The house Altuzarra exists since 2008 and is known for his feminine silhouettes and sophisticated aesthetic.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
The famous duo behind the label The Row won the award for accessory designer of the year. Olsen were candidate with Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler. This is not the first CFDA in their career as, in 2012, Mary-Kate and Ashley left the event with the Womenswear Designer award.
Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne
Another duo monopolized the interest of the Union in 2014. The reason for Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, behind the label Public School. The two designers left winners for their unique Menswear, which is inspired by the monochrome and their cool streetwear.

THE MEDIA AWARD IN HONOR OF EUGENIA SHEPPARD
Perfectly chic, the 92 and half years American entrepreneur, interior designer and of course fashion icon Iris Apfel, still gives lessons style despite her age, in every appearance. She does not stop to provoke interest, not only with the eccentric performances, but also with the original collaborations. Without any hesitation, leaving herself free to create an almost theatrical persona, combining what most distinctive and colorful.
She is the ultimate fashion icon that time does not seem to affect. Sweet, energetic, creative and such an open minder she was convinced her to let a few things go… well, 800 things to be precise.
On April 5, in an event that can only be described as epic by both fashion and interior design standards, you can click “Buy” on eclectic treasures that the aesthete personally eyed-out (think finds she picked up at Paris flea markets in the ’40s, souks in Marrakech in the 60s, the square in Santa Fe in the ’70s)
“I just want to get my stuff out,” the self-proclaimed “geriatric starlet” says with a laugh in an exclusive interview with ELLEDECOR.com. “I want it to all go so I can just make it easy on everybody!”
