John Dempsey and Rihanna at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards
As the recipient of the 2014 Icon Award, Rihanna certainly didn’t disappoint when she stepped out for the CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday, June 2. Walking the red carpet outside Alice Tully Hall at NYC’s Lincoln Center, the 26-year-old singer turned heads in yet another skin-baring look.
Accompanied by John Dempsey, President of MAC Cosmetics, Rihanna revealed a lot (and we mean a lot) in her custom-made mesh gown designed by Adam Selman. Opting to forgo a bra, the “What Now” songstress wore nothing but a nude thong beneath the see-through number. She paired the look with sheer matching gloves and a silver mesh bandana, then topped it all off with a pale pink fur stole.
Seeing Rihanna nearly naked is pretty common these days, so we can’t exactly say we’re surprised by this look. The singer recently bared her butt crack at the MET Gala after-party, and also posed topless (with a nail through her nipple!) for French men’s magazine Lui.
Of course, Rihanna’s not the only one proudly displaying her nipples these day. Just last week, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s 22-year-old daughter, Scout, went topless on the streets of NYC to protest the nudity policies of Instagram. While we’re all for women embracing their bodies, the question begs to be asked: Are you loving this message of acceptance and equality, or should these ladies learn to cover it up?
