Rihanna Named CFDA Fashion Icon Award

There's no doubt that Rihanna is a fashion icon of sorts. She is very fashion conscious and has houses from Balmain to Carven on speed dial, so I guess it makes sense in a way for the Council of Fashion Designers of America to award her for her "tremendous impact on pop culture around the world". Does this impact have to be even remotely tasteful? Apparently not. After all, alongside Nicole Kidman and Iman, past recipients also include Lady Gaga.

Above is your fashion icon as seen last Thursday in Santa Monica. Hey, the sneakers are Givenchy.

  1. It rather looks like random articles of clothing (the term used loosely) were just thrown on. Rihanna is not my favorite although on occasion she does wear some interesting looks.

  2. She forgot her slip.

  3. Looks like something I'd wear back in my 1990's South Beach clubbing days, way back when my body could take this kind of exposure. Nonetheless, this was still "beachwear" or clubwear, not streetwear. In her defense, at least she's rockin' the right shoes. I would've gone way overboard with some badass, high-heeled combat boots that are still collecting dust in my closet and probably shouldn't. Hmmm ... does that mean Rihanna may have inspired my next rock concert ensemble? I'll let you know just how influential she really is after I go see Lorde in Vegas next month. ;-)

  4. This bothers me far less than the April cover of Vogue.

  5. Looked at this a few times to make sure I wasn't judging from a standpoint of age. Nope. My teen, early 20s self would have felt the same way about it. Tastelessness is timeless, ageless.

  6. Oh puhleeze. I mean, I do really like Rhianna - I think she's a talented musician. But style icon? Really?

  7. It's really CDFA who should be ashamed. nozknoz
