Rihanna took American Idol by storm last night when she performed her new single, “California King Bed.”

The singer who has ditched her short pixie-crop in favour of her long flowing red curls, belted out the track wearing a Carlos Miele Fall 2011 gown.

Her stunning rose velvet halter gown with a lattice detail down the front is breath-taking on her.

I haven’t been this wowed by her in a since awards season.
