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.

    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.

      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.

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

      I have explained in the text

    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

    She rocked tonight. Both dresses are amazing

    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!

      It’s probably not her hair

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

    • antoneLLina November 22, 2010 at 15:51 #

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

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

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

  10. mol November 22, 2010 at 16:18 #

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

  12. Leo November 22, 2010 at 17:26 #

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

  13. mm November 22, 2010 at 17:58 #

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

    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.

    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.
