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.
