Rihanna In Max Azria – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Most Unpredictable Award
Rihanna was very busy at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards which was held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas last night.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing an oversized Max Azria white suit with nude Louboutin’s and a Jack Vartanian emerald ring.

RiRi opened the show with Britney Spears to perform, “S&M” which is very appropriate considering how they were both dressed. The singer also accepted the Radio Artist of the Year award.

Her white unbuttoned blouse showcased a gold fringe Solange Azagury-Partridge tassle necklace.

This is a very grown up sophisticated look for Rihanna, yet she still maintains her magnetic sex appeal.

I love how she’s never predictable at these events.

    Very unexpected but a very pleasant surprised nonetheless! A very refreshing look and I love how her hair stands out against not only her outfit but the white carpet. Is the Comme Des Garcon I see on stage? Loving it!

    It’s smart it’s sexy i LOVE it!
    plus her hair just pops!

  3. Marlie May 23, 2011 at 12:26 #

    I am usually not a fan of her style (except on the occasions she has worn Elie Saab) but I really like this look on her.

  4. alannah May 23, 2011 at 12:29 #

    i was very surprised by this look too. im not usually a fan of what she wears on the red carpet, like ever. but i love this whole look!x

  5. Marvel May 23, 2011 at 12:34 #

    I absolutely love this look. The simple colour with the red hair is amazing. Its not that often Im blown away by Rihanna but this is certainly the case.

  6. Alina May 23, 2011 at 12:45 #

    Love it.

  7. Claire May 23, 2011 at 12:45 #

    Wow! I love this! Shows the starlets that you can look sexy in something other than a bandage dress!

  8. ayishaa May 23, 2011 at 12:49 #

    I can’t see the true beauty of this outfit as she completely melts into the white background. She looks beautiful and surprisingly tame.

  9. Rachie May 23, 2011 at 13:00 #

    Love it! So clean, sophisticated and SEXY!

    • Dani May 24, 2011 at 00:38 #

      Really? To me, she looks like a grandmother. A wacked out grandmother, but a granny nevertheless.

  10. Cheryl Wong May 23, 2011 at 13:05 #

    I love how she’s using the white as a sort of blank canvas for her gorgeous glowing skin and red hair to pop. Risque done right. Kudos, Rihanna.

  11. Voguette May 23, 2011 at 13:13 #

    she looks amazing

  12. lwren May 23, 2011 at 13:29 #

    An amazing look~

  13. Luiza May 23, 2011 at 13:37 #

    I really like it! And for me this the hair style that works best for her.

  14. rawda May 23, 2011 at 13:39 #

    So far, RiRi is the one to beat at this event! Work it, girl!

  15. mikeijames May 23, 2011 at 14:02 #

    this is my favorite red carpet look of hers in quite some time. this type of look really hews closer to her street-style. and while i do enjoy her couture fantasies and her outrageous video styles, she really radiates best in looks like these. and her hair cut looks fantastic this way.

  16. roxana May 23, 2011 at 14:04 #

    it’s not so unexpected. She wore a similiar outfit in may 2009, a white costume from derek lam.

  17. Tatiana May 23, 2011 at 14:22 #

    LOVE. I want to copy this. This is classy and crisp and clean. LOVE.

  18. fromchi-town May 23, 2011 at 14:34 #

    Love it! BDOTW nominee I think. Her hair works so well with this outfit. She looks amazing, and it doesn’t look try hard.

  19. DivaMom May 23, 2011 at 14:45 #

    White works with her complexion and that hair. Gold star for her.

    However I’m going to nitpick about her inviting Britney to “sing” with her. Why would you sing live and have a duet with someone who’s CLEARLY not singing? LOL Ok, rant over!

    • Fashion Critic May 23, 2011 at 14:52 #

      I hope they are going to show it here in the UK. We usually have to wait a few days

    • justme May 23, 2011 at 17:23 #

      The performance was already subpar with just Rihanna. But Britney’s lipsyncing and lack of stage presence just brought the whole thing down. Terrible.

  20. Dazzle May 23, 2011 at 15:05 #

    I was SO pleasantly surprised by this look from her. It’s an odd choice for a music award show red carpet but she looks so crisp and cool that I don’t even mind. The white looks beautiful against her skin and I even love the way her hair is styled here. Always a nice surprise when Rihanna classes up her act.

  21. robbie May 23, 2011 at 15:25 #

    she looks fantastic. and for once the red hair doesnt look horrible.

  22. Giuseppi Giraffe May 23, 2011 at 15:30 #

    Very nice! She looks quite grown up and tasteful, cherry red hair and all.

  23. Rebecca May 23, 2011 at 15:49 #

    She looks fabulous–I must say your readers have grown to love Rihanna more during the past year, i am pleased to see.

    I don’t know how you keep up with all this FC–your have really been pumping it out for weeks and weeks–and so adaptable–from Cannes to this stuff in the blink of an eye! Glad you took a day off this past weekend! Thanks for all of this.

    • Fashion Critic May 23, 2011 at 16:03 #

      thanks for showing your appreciation x

  24. moja31 May 23, 2011 at 16:10 #

    she looks amazing.

  25. Senni May 23, 2011 at 16:26 #

    Love it. I can’t remember seeing Rihanna look this good – not with the red hair, at least. Pure perfection.

  26. Henrique May 23, 2011 at 17:12 #

    LOVE. She’s always amazing.

  27. justme May 23, 2011 at 17:22 #

    Love it. It’s always nice when she lets her hair be the only pop of color.

  28. mochababe73 May 23, 2011 at 17:26 #

    Rihanna cleans up nicely. Maybe she is realizing that simple and sexy is better than putting it all out there.

  29. Jen May 23, 2011 at 17:29 #

    LOVE. I always love her hair but combined with the cut of the suit and the white color .. ah. Love x 2 for me.

  30. emily May 23, 2011 at 17:30 #

    She looks simply amazing. White really works with her caramel skin.

  31. MEME May 23, 2011 at 18:04 #

    This reminds me of a Derek Lam look she rocked in ’09…. but I liked the Derek Lam look better….

  32. Jones19 May 23, 2011 at 21:12 #

    This suit looks incredible on her.

  33. alyssa897 May 23, 2011 at 23:07 #

    Love this! I only have a few Rihanna looks I like. One being the black and white cut out rose Marchesa dress and the other being the white gown with red roses (de la Renta I believe). This is one of my faves. Sophisticated, stunning, refreshing and unpredictable!

  34. Laura May 24, 2011 at 04:59 #

    Really liking the change of pace from RiRi. It looks like she took an outfit out of Angelina Jolie’s closet and made it interesting and gave it some edge.

  35. Ayesha May 24, 2011 at 05:07 #

    i’m in love with this look head to toe,FABULOUS!!
