Rihanna In Elie Saab Couture – 2010 American Music Awards Stage

When Rihanna went to collect her award for Best Soul/R&B Female at the 2010 American Music Awards, she looked divine wearing her second Elie Saab Fall 2010 Couture gown of the night.

I adore her green draped one sleeve gown with a sexy thigh-high split.

She modified it to make the look her own by wearing the draped detail under her arm.

If I was ever lucky enough to wear such a gown I would’ve worn it the same way.

She was the real surprise of the night. I didn’t expect her to wow me the way she did.

    I don’t think it’s a great photo, but I do love this look on her. Normally she looks like she’s trying so hard that it bores me to tears, but I like this with the corkscrew curls.

    I don’t like the dress on her nor do I like the color. I actually like it better on the runway. The gown appears to be altered. The draping is different. And, I am not liking the hair. It ages her.

    Not loving this look. But I think she gave the best live performance i have seen from her.

    Great look for her, beautiful dress that is also interesting without being costume-y. Much much better than the red carpet look.

    I like the original version of the dress better – especially for her and maybe the modified version on someone like Nicole Kidman or….

    Wow – Rihanna can really change it up! I think she looks wonderful here, just maybe different shoes, but I like her own twist on the way she wore the dress, and the fact that she kept eveything else to a bare minimum – I’m imprewssed.

    I am impressed. I usually roll my eyes at Rihanna, but here I am satisfied.

    LOVE the dress and her in it.

    I think she may have gone for the green dress/ red hair combo but she may have over done it with the hair 🙂

    I don’t like this dress on her. It does nothing for her.

      totally agree. i don’t like ANYTHING here.
      sorry again!

        Add me to the group, once again the model is working it better.

    Reason I love this so much, is because i was getting tired in seeing her in studs, leather and weird shapes. This look suits her.

    i prefer the original dress, it makes it more draped!…rihanna is going to get bald if she continues dying her hair week after week…naomi campbell is an example!

    • Rebecca November 22, 2010 at 17:37 #

      It’s probably not her hair

  13. Lara November 22, 2010 at 13:36 #

    She rocked tonight. Both dresses are amazing

    I’m kind of getting a Whitney Houston vibe! The hair and even her dress kind of reminds me of Whitney’s Kaufman Franco dress to the AMAs last year:

    Rihanna pulled out two great Elie Saab looks for the night.

      yes great point

  15. Jasmine November 22, 2010 at 13:21 #

    why does the dress look so different in the two pix, FC?

    • Fashion Critic November 22, 2010 at 13:25 #

      I have explained in the text

  16. Alicat November 22, 2010 at 13:11 #

    lol I actually didn’t recognise her with the more natural looking hair! I don’t like this on her. It makes her look wide across the hips and thighs, and because of this the detailed draping as seen on the model is lost.

    • Fee November 22, 2010 at 14:51 #

      I agree, I don’t think it’s flattering on her at all considering she has such a great figure. Maybe it’s her stance in this particular photo but it looks like all the draping has been stretched out of the dress.
