Rhi Rhi takes home the Fashion Icon Award at this year’s CFDA Awards

Each year the CFDA recognises the outstanding contributions to American fashion by individuals from all areas of the industry and related fields. Amongst the awards there is the prestigious Fashion Icon award.

This award is for an individual whose style has made a significant impact on popular culture on an international stage. The caliber for the award has always been high with a past winners list that includes Lady Gaga, Iman, Kate Moss and Nicole Kidman.

Rihanna was crowned this year’s winner. But this is no surprise. She has consistently been shown to take fashion risks and experiment with looks. She also has the support of many fashion designers.

Designer Zac Posen has hailed the song birds as someone who “takes risks, and she marches to her own drum and she knows what she likes.”

Arriving at the Lincoln Centre Rhi Rhi didn’t disappoint the crowd. Known for her bold and dramatic choices Rihanna wears a customs made Adam Seman gown.

This floor length gown features a delicately thin racer back and is made from an equally delicate sheer Swarovski crystal fabric showing off the many tattoos that adorn Rihanna’s body.  The fur stole adds some modesty (emphasis on the some) and the matching cap adds a 1920’s feel. 

Despite the audaciousness of the outfit Rihanna wears it well walking tall and with confidence. She is telling the world she doesn't give a f*@k. Perhaps this outfit choice was a swipe at Instagram sending a message that she can and will share her nips with the world?  

Steven Kolb, CEO of CFDA stated “We are proud to present Rihanna with the CFDA Fashion Icon Award for her impact on the industry as fashion’s most exciting ambassador in recent memory,”

We agree with Steven and look forward to seeing this fashion icon continue to evolve.
