For today’s Best Dressed of the Week, fashion’s very own rebel gives us a lesson, or two, in how to do white with an overspill (note: not overkill) of sex appeal!
Rihanna took to the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘Battleship’ in a gasp-inducingly crisp white Adam Selman (the man who designed Riri’s outfits for her Loud tour) halter gown. When we laid eyes on this red carpet look, it’s safe to see we were style-struck!
The stark white of the gown against Riri’s toned and glowing bod works a dream, and with a daring thigh-high slit, sits firmly outside of the BWD (Boring White Dress) category. The backless gown paired with the thigh-high split sure turned heads!
Often, A-listers opt for ‘angelic’ looks when wearing white on the red carpet, but Rihanna is famed for dancing to the beat of her own style drum, and in true Good Girl Gone Bad style showed us how white is done, devilishly.
Rihanna kept accessories to a minimum, opting for small hoop earrings, a statement ring, bracelet and white Manolo Blahnik sandals. Having gone back to black with her hair colour, we’re not too sure about the poorly styled side-swept hair (almost looks shower fresh!), but the shocking red pout makes up for it.
A killer white outfit and red lips are the perfect power dressing partners, and, although we’re missing a sharp, padded shoulder suit here, Rihanna didn’t fall short of making a super-strong style statement!
