This Is What You Came for: Rihanna Works Creepers & Opera Gloves on the Red Carpet
On the list of fashion daredevils, Rihanna is definitely in our top five. The star wears the most statement-making, high-fashion looks with complete effortlessness: daring to go where we aren’t always comfortable to.
She wore yet another conversation-starting ensemble at the 30th FN Achievement Awards, where she picked up the Shoe of the Year honor for her Fenty x Puma creepers. The Bajan beauty anchored her head-turning Vetements x Juicy Couture getup with the coveted kicks.
Yes, we said Juicy Couture! Rihanna brought our favorite beloved label from the early aughts to the red carpet, through its collaboration with one of the industry’s hottest brands. Her “Securite” logo cap and T-shirt channeled French bodyguards—Vetements shows in Paris after all—while her high-waist velvet maxiskirt and matching snake-accented opera gloves injected a dose of glamour. The Grammy Award-winning performer added some sparkle to the outfit with Chopard gemstone drop earrings and a diamond necklace.
Rihanna was joined on the red carpet by Zendaya, iconic fashion designer Michael Kors, Orange Is The New Black’s Dascha Polanco, and legendary model Christie Brinkley. “I didn’t expect people to love it the way I do and it means so much to me to be receiving this award tonight,” said the fashionable artist in her acceptance speech.
