Rihanna In Givenchy Couture – 2012 Brit Awards

Rihanna took a night off wearing her co-designed Giorgio Armani gowns at the 2012 Brits Awards, which was held at the O2 Arena in London this evening.

The surprisingly nervous singer took home the ‘Best International Female Artist’ award wearing a Givenchy Spring 2012 Couture gown.

Her sexy, shimmering crystal embellished taupe gown with a thigh-high split and plunging neckline was teamed with matching Givenchy diamante peep-toes and brown leather opera gloves which we’ve seen all over the Fall 2012 runways.

The trend setter wore Solange Azagury-Partridge studded earrings and opted to style her ombre blonde locks into a chic updo.

Do you love this look?

Or are her thigh-high splits and plunging neckline gowns all rolling into one?

    Beautiful dress, I just don’t like the shoes that much.
    Personally, I don’t see nothing wrong with her opera
    gloves. As a matter a fact, I really like them.

    Don’t like the dress, don’t like that she keeps wearing this type of look, don’t like the color.

  4. Alina February 22, 2012 at 13:57 #

    I love the dress but not on her. I would have liked to see it on someone who can do classy and sexy at the same time.

  5. Keeks February 22, 2012 at 11:02 #

    I’m bored by it personally but I definitely would have preferred this look without those gloves!

  6. Jazz February 22, 2012 at 05:59 #

    i am loving this phase she’s in.she WORKS it!

  7. bm February 22, 2012 at 05:10 #

    love the dress and shoes, hate the gloves.
    love the way she styled her hair, but hate the color.

  8. Cody February 22, 2012 at 04:37 #

    The dress is beautiful. And I like that she decided to wear her hair up. It glammed up the look as opposed to the trashy 90’s sex siren feel of the last 2 Armani looks. Repetitive? Sure. But she looks amazing.

  9. Lorra February 22, 2012 at 04:14 #

    I absolutely hate the colour and she’s just repeatting the exacts
    Looks but this one is just plain trashy

  10. anna February 22, 2012 at 02:22 #

    She may be in a teeny style rut right now, but she still looks pretty damn awesome in those dressed. When she stops looking fantastic, I will start complaining.

  11. Azur February 22, 2012 at 02:14 #

    hate those gloves

  12. Azur February 22, 2012 at 02:12 #

    don’t like: the dress itself and on Riri either

  13. Linda February 22, 2012 at 01:15 #

    Oh, too bad, so sad. This doesn’t work on her at all. The gloves are unnecessary and ugly, I would prefer a plainer shoe because the dress has so much sparkle already and overall it’s tragic.

    Imagine this dress on a really effortless and sophisticated person like Angelina Jolie or Charlize Theron. So sad because now we will never see that happen.

  14. Cassiie February 22, 2012 at 00:25 #

    Not my favourite, way too much – the gloves, the split, the neckline.

  15. mandy February 22, 2012 at 00:16 #

    As much as I want to rant on how she needs to get a new formula for red carpet dresses, cus 3 times in a row is getting boring, but she still stuns in this dress !! She still rock it like she owns it !!!

  16. Parvati February 21, 2012 at 23:51 #

    I like this look – it may backless with a thigh high split and plunging neckline, but it’s different from her previous 2 outfits, plus it’s paired with more interesting accessories and a different hairstyle. I prefer this to the Armani looks.

  17. Dhppy February 21, 2012 at 23:47 #

    I love the dress, am annoyed by the gloves, and am oddly unmoved by the shoes despite the fact that they make perfect sense with the outfit. (Every time I see those Givenchy models with the faux mouth piercings, I just recoil. I thought styling was supposed to enhance a collection not make people desperately look anywhere else.)

  18. Jones19 February 21, 2012 at 23:46 #

    Really Rihanna? A thigh high slit and plunging neckline three times in a row? And now with leather gloves? This just got old fast.

  19. Ariel February 21, 2012 at 23:45 #

    Her recent looks are repetitive- plunging, thigh split gown. I like the dress, just not how she wears it.

  20. Emma February 21, 2012 at 23:15 #

    I can deal with the gloves considering this is the Brits, but I can’t get on board with the blonde hair and awful roots.

  21. Kim February 21, 2012 at 22:30 #

    i love rihanna but this is terrible, far too fussy, and the gloves are horrendous.

  22. Andrea February 21, 2012 at 22:17 #

    The gloves and hair are really bad. The makeup is also not great. She makes a beautiful dress look cheap.

  23. Claire February 21, 2012 at 22:13 #

    Like the dress, don’t like the gloves, and tho I love her hair colour down, all I can see are dark roots with it up like this

  24. Dani February 21, 2012 at 21:51 #

    Hate the hair so much I’m struggling to focus on anything else. Didn’t mind it in the previous two looks, but in this shot at least, it’s making her look very sallow.

  25. Bec February 21, 2012 at 21:47 #


  26. SilentVisitor February 21, 2012 at 21:40 #

    Honestly isn’t this the same look she had at the Grammy, at Stella’s and now at the Brits????

  27. Foteini P. February 21, 2012 at 21:37 #

    NO to the gloves and NO to those ugly roots!

  28. robbie February 21, 2012 at 21:32 #

    love it on the model on rihanna its just trashy.

  29. Erik February 21, 2012 at 21:32 #

    Horrible.. I can’t look at this

  30. Melrose February 21, 2012 at 21:27 #

    HOT dress. Gloves don’t bother me.

    i just really hate her roots.

    • mm February 21, 2012 at 21:33 #

      me too. the hair ruins it. The hair color and the updo look amateur. Horrible

  31. Nat39 February 21, 2012 at 21:23 #

    The leather gloves could´ve worked if she´d opted for an overall edgier styling with edgier shoe choice and more dramatic makeup. Not a fan of her so matchy shoe choice.
    Just like her other 2 looks, this feels a bit on a trashy side. I was actually quite surprised her look won her BDOTW.

  32. Hannah February 21, 2012 at 21:15 #

    I would have loved this, but 3 of the exact same silhouette in what, a week and a bit, and doing the same poses is just boring.
    I wish she had either worn this first, sans gloves, or not worn it at all.

  33. Rebecca Z February 21, 2012 at 21:15 #

    I like it–love her hair, agree about the gloves. Not quite as sexy as the green and black dresses

  34. dee February 21, 2012 at 21:13 #

    I like this better than her previous 2 looks. But something is still not working for me.

  35. Christine February 21, 2012 at 21:06 #


  36. eimear February 21, 2012 at 21:03 #

    Arrrrgh I WISH she had taken those gloves off, she would look so perfect without them…kinda looks like shes about to do the washing up!

    • Hisadora February 21, 2012 at 21:10 #

      Agreed. the look could have been much better without those gloves…

      • Chloe February 21, 2012 at 21:30 #

        Agree. Minus the gloves, a perfect 10

    • molly February 21, 2012 at 22:22 #

      Agreed. I dont care for the slit either, but the gloves just are awful. I love her hair.

    • Hermoine February 21, 2012 at 23:25 #


    • Leni February 22, 2012 at 00:07 #

      I think long gloves should always look elegant but in that outfit they look horrendous.

    It’s a beautiful dress – though probably the easiest one to wear in that Givenchy Haute Couture collection
