Rihanna In Vivienne Westwood – 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Rihanna was one of the guest performers at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show held at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City yesterday evening.

The singer wore an all black Vivienne Westwood look which could’ve passed off as one of the looks worn by the VS models.

She donned a signature Westwood corset with a black skirt with a thigh-high slit revealing her stockings and suspenders.

Pearl accessories including a vintage Chanel choker, pearl accented Chanel shades and earrings plus lace opera gloves and black heels completed her look.

I think I love her performance look more than her red carpet look.

Which you do you prefer?

    I would’ve really liked this look minus the pearl overload. I think it’s the sunglasses that just kills it for me

    Bold and sexy, great performance look, her figure looks amazing, love it minus the comical shades.

      I understand all the “tacky/ridiculous” comments but I still think it’s a perfect stage costume that is perfectly in tune with the event she is performing at, and she is rocking it.

      +1. And I’m giving her a pass on the glasses because she is performing — event appropriate (and fun, not taking herself too seriously)….

    WOW. This oozes sex appeal. This look is faaaaaaaar better than her red carpet one.

    I agree about the pearl overload. Either the glasses or the necklace… but not both! Actually, preferably just the necklace. The glasses are too comical looking.

    Those glasses are wacky out of place lol but the dress fits like a glove. Overall very nice stage look.

  6. Sam November 8, 2012 at 19:10 #

    I adore this look! The glasses just add to the look and the sex appeal!

    I only like Miu Miu and Prada accessories, so this look was bound to outperform her red carpet one in my eyes. If she were walking around on the street like this, I’d expect Lady GaGa to be her date. On stage, however, it makes sense.

    The shades bother me a little but I love the dramatic nature of this look.

  9. Odette November 8, 2012 at 19:26 #

    Tacky, annoying and eyeroll-worthy as always.

    • EmmaWoodhouse November 9, 2012 at 04:37 #

      +1 This is abysmal. So tacky (those sunglasses! Seriously!) So trashy (that slit and stocking) and overall just, as you said, “eyeroll-worthy”

  10. Ana November 8, 2012 at 19:28 #

    bold & sexy with lipstick smudges on her teeth.

  11. robbie November 8, 2012 at 20:06 #

    tacky but then again this is rihanna after all so tacky is to be expected.

  12. Rebecca Z November 8, 2012 at 20:31 #

    It’s ridiculous, but the dress looks amazing on her.

  13. Amy November 8, 2012 at 22:05 #

    the dress is great for sure

  14. Be erly November 8, 2012 at 23:11 #

    People are forgetting this is a PERFORMANCE look, not red carpet, so it makes sense that its DRAMATIC and theatrical. This is amazing. The fit is beyond. Her body is perfection. The glasses and necklace are subversive and glamorous. Best Dressed of The Week.

  15. Christine November 9, 2012 at 00:44 #

    Wow, this is BDOTW look. Hands down she looks phenomenal :D

    Hi FC! From what I’ve researched. This is custom made Adam Selman. I know it looks like a Westwood but since it’s Rihanna, I can see that Adam Selman could design this for her. Just sharing. :)

      Thanks for the information.

        Oopsie! Haha! A lot are reporting this is Adam Selman. And I was convinced because there was a pitcure of Adam and Rihanna backstage with that black gown. I guess this confirms it! Thanks FC! ;) No one can beat you at your game! I bow down! :D

        • Fashion Critic November 9, 2012 at 08:25 #

          Thanks Markness.

    It was a nice look, if you don’t look at her head. The gown definitely looked better than her two pieces on the red carpet. But when I looked at her head, I saw Billie Holiday in that red carpet look, and in the performance look … Ray Charles.

  18. Markness November 9, 2012 at 02:46 #

    The sunglasses are vintage Chanel! I couldn’t believe it! :)

  19. Cotton Boots November 9, 2012 at 07:16 #

    I like that, I very much agree!

  20. the (un?)social butterfly November 9, 2012 at 12:27 #

    I think it´s extremely flattering, fun and most of all, event-appropriate. As an aussie friend of mine used to say, it´s FAWESOME! Rihanna has been growing on me.

  21. Chanel November 11, 2012 at 09:58 #

    I think this look would have been perfect if she’d chosen other type of sunglasses, maybe those gold accented ones Anna Dello Russo designed for H&M, or something like that. It’s too much pearls for her, but I still get what other say when it’s only for the performance.
    Otherwise, love her. She’s so sexy in this outfit!

  22. Jess2 November 11, 2012 at 15:53 #

    That dress is amazing!! I don’t mind the glasses so much as it is a performance but all is perfect for the event!!

  23. Valerie November 12, 2012 at 04:03 #

    If Rihanna could dress like that all the time, the world would be a better place.

    I agree the sunglasses aren’t my favorites, but overall, damn shes workin’ it !
