Rihanna In Givenchy Couture – 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Rihanna In Givenchy Couture - 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Rihanna appeared on stage at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium on Thursday (May 1) in Los Angeles, California prior to collecting her ‘Artist of the Year’ award.

Going back into the archives, the singer selected a Givenchy Fall 2008 Couture silk-tulle high-neck gown with lace appliqués, styled with a Givenchy nappa-leather jacket instead of the wool coat we saw on the runway.

Adding to the goth vibe, Rihanna styled her look with a selection of silver jewels while working a green shimmering lip.

China bumps, aka Bantu Knots, completed her look.

Even though this is yet another sheer dress, Rihanna is rocking the hell out of this look. I love it from head to toe. It’s fierce without trying too hard.

    I can totally deal with this look, it’s event appropriate. She looks mighty fierce! But I can’t get on board with the lips, hairstyle and those earrings. They all scream for attention and take a lot away from the look.

      Hear, hear. Rihanna is always begginggggggggggggg for attention and she really doesn’t have to. She’s so beautiful. This is over the top and desperate. So very contrived. As always… Gotta keep people talking, I suppose. From the nude spread in Lui to this. She wants to remain the hot topic of the week.

    Definitely! She has the gravitas to rock this look! She looks fierce. I actually like this from head to toe. The hair and makeup works here. If this was in the hands if Rita Ora, this look would’ve failed so hard.

    You call them China Bumps??? We call them Bantu Knots in the USA. Lol

    I definately want to see how her curls look when she takes them out.

      how interesting. we speak the same language but use different words :)

      Thanks for that

        Bantu Knot here in Canada, as well. But all Caribbean people here call it China/”Chiney” bump.

    • Shannie May 23, 2014 at 05:06 #

      I call them China bumps too. Growing up in the Caribbean, that’s what we say.

    This is a quite big ‘no’ for me.

  5. SilentVisitor May 2, 2014 at 12:03 #

    Perhaps I am just tired of seeing so much of her skin and her underwear, this is a No for me. Next………

    She is the only one who can pull off something like this. She looks amazing.

  7. Zoe May 2, 2014 at 13:05 #

    I’m just so tired of seeing all of her body all the time. She’s becoming very one note. Like I get it, sex sells. But what else do you have?

    • SilentVisitor May 2, 2014 at 16:34 #

      Exactly………

  8. Alex May 2, 2014 at 14:20 #

    Awful.

  9. Marcel May 2, 2014 at 15:22 #

    I COULD have loved it, if she hadn’t showed her knickers soooooooooooooooooo many times before. The outfit is so beautiful and so well styled.. But I am tired of her.

  10. Hpj May 2, 2014 at 15:28 #

    Eh. I love that she can put off something like this but I feel like I always see so much of her all the time.

  11. pinksugar May 2, 2014 at 15:57 #

    I hate this. I find it tacky and completely overstyled. Not to mention the utter stupidity of the hair and makeup.

  12. Rebecca Z May 2, 2014 at 16:33 #

    I love her, but this look doesn’t work for me. I get it, but she can do better.

  13. Pedro May 2, 2014 at 17:19 #

    She looks amazing!

    Fierce

  14. Magdalena May 2, 2014 at 18:00 #

    I really dislike the hair and makeup. Also, I preferred this dress on Natalia Vodianova.

  15. J May 2, 2014 at 18:02 #

    No no no. I don’t like it @ all on Riri: trashyyy She needs to dress up. The model with the coat looks very chic

  16. Hannah May 2, 2014 at 18:22 #

    All I can say is Gwen did it better.

  17. Renata May 2, 2014 at 19:45 #

    NO. Just no. This is a hot mess.

  18. Elodie May 2, 2014 at 19:52 #

    This reminds me so much of Scary Spice during the 90′s, especially the hair

  19. amy May 2, 2014 at 20:55 #

    just no. gross

  20. ForestyBali May 3, 2014 at 02:58 #

    She looks like medusa for me. Scary!

  21. Abby May 3, 2014 at 03:59 #

    Only Riri can pull this look off .. She rocks it.

  22. Shari May 9, 2014 at 23:25 #

    Just saw some closeups from the face and that lipstick has great texture. Usually metallic and dark colored lips, especially in unacostumed tones look weir but not this one. Would like to know the brand!
