Rihanna In Rihanna for River Island - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Rihanna opted to go low key to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday evening as she made a last-minute decision to attend the event.

She opted to skip the red carpet, taking her seat in the front row wearing an MC Lyte graphic t-shirt that read ‘Gotta Get A Ruff Neck’ with jeans from her Rihanna for River Island collection and black sandals.

Low key didn’t mean low on glamour as she added a diamond choker and matching cuff to her laidback look, with a vintage Chanel velvet bag, Lynn Ban cuff plus a hot-red lip with a tiny gold cross ‘grill’ between her two front teeth providing the finishing touch.

I love the look. She totally nailed it. Sexy doesn’t have to mean letting it all hang out.

She looks way better than a few of the other attendees I could name – Sarah Hyland and Erin Wasson immediately spring to mind.

    Take notes, from someone wearing a ripped up ‘ruffneck’ T-shirt and a grill? Good one.

    Yet again she nailed it, I love that Rihanna mixes it up when shes in the mood to go casual, she does a slouchy jean and cut off tshirt with a diamond choker, and diamond bracelets. She looked better than most of the try hards, like Rita Ora, who looked like there going to the Oscars. Well being insanely beautiful always helps!

      ITA 100% Rita, Iggy and Ciara needed to take notes.

    Laidback is fine but glamming up the casual t-shirt and jeans with the diamonds is ridiculous.

    I like this look a lot. I’m not sure why some people dressed so formally. It’s the VMAs not the Grammy’s!

    Great casual look, as long as she keeps her mouth shut. I am not a fan of the grill.

    Love this casual, low key side of her.

    I absolutely adore the idea, but I don’t think the cut does anything for. It looks insanely boxy.

    I tend to scroll over Rihanna posts these days, but this looks okay.

    It’s just OK for me but better than most of her looks.

    This was good until I saw that thing in between her teeth. I seriously don’t understand fashion at the moment.

  12. Christine August 26, 2013 at 13:42 #

    She looks nice.

    I’ve read that she didn’t want to attend the VMAs at first but her fans begged her to go on Twitter, hence the laidback look.
    I have to say that I like it.

      That doesnt surprise me, this whole look says that she is too cool for that show.

    • KatieKate August 27, 2013 at 04:04 #

      Why didn’t she want to go? B/c it wasn’t all about her-e.g. not performing, not nominated, at least for anything important?? Yet she decides she will ‘grace us with her presence’ last minute, and she shows up looking like she just got done running some menial errands (which I’m sure she doesn’t do, unlike the ‘rest of us’), and expects to sit front row. I wouldn’t even have noticed if she weren’t there. So ungrateful. Oh but she did manage to advertise her joke of a fashion line. Kudos, Rihanna, you’re a class act.

    Better than usual. I wish I hadn’t seen the picture of her smiling.
