Rihanna In Balmain – VMAs After-Party

Rihanna In Balmain - VMAs After-Party

Rihanna joined Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z in the rooftop lounge of PH-D at the Dream Downtown in New York City on Sunday following the VMAs.

Not wanting to leave her cocktail behind, she was spotted leaving carrying her beverage, wearing a sexy Balmain long-sleeved jacquard mini dress styled with Manolo Blahnik sandals, the same Lynn Ban jewels she had worn earlier in the evening, plus a gold body chain.

This is a sexy Rihanna I can get on board with. Sexy without trying to damn hard.

“Why didn’t she wear this to the main event?” I’m sure many of you are asking.

I guess she didn’t want all eyes on her when she wasn’t a nominee, even though the camera panned to her several times during the live broadcast.

    FYI Rihanna was a nominee in the best female category for “Stay”

    Should’ve worn this to the show. This is sexy and glamorous. I’m not her biggest fan, but I can give her due credit, and she does look great with that latest haircut, and her red lips are gorge!

    Fabulous. She probably didn’t sit down even for a minute.

    Way too short.

    Proving that she can look fabulous!

    This dress is so short that I would imagine it would be really uncomfortable to sit down in. Jeans make more sense for an event where you’re sitting and essentially watching a concert.

      Hi Anj, she wore this to the afterparty, not the VMAs. Ironically, she did wear jeans to the actual music show.

    This is how to dress for the VMAs. Not the OTT frou,frou get ups some of the more desperate to be seen stars wore. A simple LBD with the right accessories and a beautiful body and face in it, will trumped overwrought feathers and mammoth trains anyday.

    The camera is always gonna pan to her, cos she Princess riri! More talented than all the other nominees! Hmm i wish she would mix it up with her shoes. She wears these Manolos every day.. and ripped them off with her River Island design.

    I only like the shoes.

    I like it. It’s a little bit too short but on her it works.

    Back to her usual tacky outfits. IMO.
