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 Rihanna Effect
“I never wanted to be famous. I just wanted my music to be heard all over the world.”
Third time’s a charm! A smiling Rihanna covers Vogue‘s March 2014 issue for her third time ever gracing the front of fashion’s Bible.
Photographed by Sporting a pixie cut, the singer wears a Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 beaded sheer top and embellished jeans on the cover, with the rest of her editorial seeing her wearing a selection of Spring 2014 looks from Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Alexander Wang, Rodarte, Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, Versace, Maison Martin Margiela and Calvin Klein, for which she dons a white wig.
Rihanna’s a hit-maker for the masses and the designers
The Rihanna Effect was all over the spring collections. Peter Dundas for Pucci showed leather boxer shorts worn with jeweled jackets, and adorned his red-carpet frocks with beaded black harnesses. Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing, who has Rihanna starring in his spring ad campaign, showed what amounted to an entire Rihanna wardrobe on his runway: baseball jackets worn with sheer tops and skinny houndstooth pants; eighties-inspired denim minidresses cinched at the waist. Tom Ford’s bejeweled teeny-tiny dresses and thigh-high gladiator sandals said Rihanna loud and clear.
Blonde and topless
A few days ago Rihanna was photographed for the new campaign of MAC Viva Glam and–as usual-she gave us a first glimpse at Instagram. The pop singer continues her successful collaboration with MAC, with which has launched 3 makeup collections until today, a holiday, a summer and an autumn.
This time she supports the initiative of Viva Glam, which aims to support men, women and children affected by HIV and AIDS. In the campaign that has so far play a leading role many big names in the entertainment industry, from Christina Aguilera and Dita Von Teese to Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj.
Balmain chose Rihanna as the protagonist of the new advertising campaign for spring-summer season 2014. The famous singer was photographed for the needs of the campaign in New York City by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
“In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world,” said Rousteing. “When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.”
