Rihanna recently made waves by wearing a sheer crystal gown at the CFDA Awards, but the Barbados-born singer has never shied away from controversial looks, both with her outfits and with her chameleon-like hairstyle changes.
See a few of Rihanna’s most shocking looks, dresses or outfits that either showed too much or were simply very weird when compared with mainstream fashion.
Collecting the Style Icon award at the Council of Fashion Designers of America ceremony in New York, Rihanna wore a custom Adam Selman gown that consisted of thousands of Swarovski crystals sewn into a fishnet base. The only times when her nipples weren’t visible were when she chose to conceal them with a feather boa.
While few of Rihanna’s most shocking looks can compare to her 2014 CFDA Awards outfit, the singer went for a lingerie vibe for her appearance at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. The corseted bodysuit was part of Ulyana Sergeenko Spring 2014 Couture collection, and Rihanna wore a pink robe dress over it for a boudoir feel.
