WHERE & WHEN: 55th Annual Grammy Awards on February 10, 2013.
WEARING: Azzedine Alaïa dress, Manolo Blahnik shoes & Neil Lane jewelry.
MY VERDICT: Rihanna looked red-hot in her custom Azzedine Alaïa gown! Here I was expecting her to break out something really edgy that pushed the envelope, but I should know to never expect what she’s going to do—because she’ll do the opposite. The “Stay” singer took a more glamorous approach to the Grammy red carpet in the gorgeous sheer paprika silk gown with paneling at the bodice. I can tell that she made an attempt to stay within the dress code guidelines by covering up, but the fabric was still too thin at the bust and it left little to the imagination. She coordinated her lipstick and nail polish with the color of her gown, before finishing the look with some beautiful cascading curls and kohl cat-eye liner to further intensify her bright eyes.
In my opinion, dress code violation or not, Riri was still one of the best dressed women of the night.
