February 9, 2015 Runway To Red Carpet

Rihanna In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2015 Grammy Awards

57th GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Rihanna was positively captivating, as she floated down the red carpet of the 2015 Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (February 8).

This time out, the provocative songstress shocked and awed in the best way possible in her Giambattista Valli Spring 2015 Couture gown complemented by sparkling Chopard jewels.

The mesmerizing design was a delicious, cotton-candy confection with a fantasy of voluminously spun pink tulle.

Just as enchanting as the gown was RiRi’s refreshingly natural beauty look, built on a nude lip and a sleek ballet bun.

I am still basically speechless at this revelation. J’adore.

    Yes this is absurd. Yes it looks like grandma’s toilet roll doll. But it’s amusing and she does look like she’s having fun so I’m giving her a pass.

  6. liz February 9, 2015 at 10:09 am #

    *sigh* This was my Oscars dress for Keira.

  7. alvaro_spain February 9, 2015 at 9:54 am #

    I hate this. Rihanna doesn’t make justice to the dress. And the hair is awful.

  8. PMS February 9, 2015 at 6:59 am #

    The movement of this dress is everything.

  9. PMS February 9, 2015 at 6:58 am #

    This look reminds me the 2008 Rihanna, the beautiful girl who made us fall in love with that smile and fashionista looks… I love seeing her in pink, smiling and having fun.

    Also, in her performance she looked mature and sophisticated, I love Rihanna.

  10. Dhppy February 9, 2015 at 6:15 am #

    I don’t like this, but I like the drama and I absolutely love the joy it brings her.

  11. tess February 9, 2015 at 6:14 am #

    I dislike this look immensely.

  12. Lavina February 9, 2015 at 6:09 am #

    I love this! It’s almost anti-climatic. Nice candy concoction..

  13. Rashmi February 9, 2015 at 6:07 am #

    I swear.. I still can’t stop smiling looking at this look. It was the best of the night considering the Unexpectedness, freshness, cutesy, daring enough to go all big and covered and looking absolutely gorgeous in it.
    She is such a chameleon. Cannot believe, she is same person who wore the nude sparkling gown to CFDA.

    • Rashmi February 9, 2015 at 6:09 am #

      Oh and btw, Congratsssssss FC for another tick on your Couture Wish List 😉 Manyy more to come.

      • Catherine Kallon February 9, 2015 at 10:27 am #

        I know two in one night, three this weekend.

        I want to tick off a few from Ralph & Russo for the Oscars

        • Rashmi February 9, 2015 at 1:25 pm #

          Haha all the best! And am waiting for my Valentino and Zuhair Murad picks. Realllly want those on red carpet!

  14. Nadiyah February 9, 2015 at 6:02 am #

    I’m tired of people complaining about Rihanna being “naked” all of the time – she isn’t. Every so often, and frankly, when appropriate, she takes risks but most of the time, she’s clothed.

    As for this dress, its not my personal cup of tea, but I like the change of pace and the girlish-ness it brings out of her.

    • julyol1972 February 9, 2015 at 6:19 am #

      Thank you!!!

    • liz February 10, 2015 at 10:05 pm #

      tbh, people can’t handle RiRi’s perfection so they have to slam her for showing skin. whatever, losers. she’s a queen.

  15. Sarah February 9, 2015 at 6:02 am #

    OMG – you forget how incredibly beautiful she is. I think the OTT cupcake dress perfectly juxtaposes her natural styling. LOVE IT!

  16. Alina February 9, 2015 at 5:43 am #

    Wow. This is a no. A big no.

  17. Aocc February 9, 2015 at 5:28 am #

    BDOTY A RISK IT’S WHAT IT’S CALLED PEOPLE! Love every second of it.

  18. Carolina February 9, 2015 at 4:53 am #

    Awful. This dress was this year’s joke of the Grammys

  19. Nadia February 9, 2015 at 4:23 am #

    I usually loathe her style but I must admit she looks pretty good here.
    It’s crazy and unexpected.

  20. Sonya February 9, 2015 at 4:16 am #

    What the… is she pregnant?

  21. Alex V February 9, 2015 at 4:12 am #

    I cant decide if i Love it or not. I wish her hair was more spectacular, as well as her makeup.

  22. Andrea February 9, 2015 at 4:09 am #

    She’s having fun and I love her for that.

  23. Valissa February 9, 2015 at 4:07 am #

    To al those wondering how she sat down…I don’t think she did. Backstage pictures have her in black pants and a black crop top. Obviously a lot more practical lol

  24. fromchi-town February 9, 2015 at 4:07 am #

    Wow – this is not a look we will forget any time soon. This is completely unexpected and crazy. If anyone can rock this it is Rihanna. Not one to do anything in half measures, this is of course completely over the top. She looks like she’s having a great time and that’s what makes this crazy look work. I am loving it on her.

  25. Nadine February 9, 2015 at 4:07 am #

    Love this on her, she looks so sweet.

  26. PnP February 9, 2015 at 4:05 am #

    I mean this is just perfection!! She never fails to stun and amaze. Literally no words for the epicness of this look!
    Along with Emma Stone at the Globes, she’s going on my BDOTY list.

    • PnP February 9, 2015 at 4:11 am #

      I also have to add that I much appreciate she went totally opposite from the other women there like Miley, Chrissy or Nicki because she’s already done those looks…and better. She keeps us on our toes, that’s why we love her.

  27. Matt R February 9, 2015 at 3:58 am #

    I wasn’t able to watch the red carpet live but caught pics of Rihanna on Twitter. I saw the dress and not only knew it was Giambattista, but simultaneously started yelling “Yes!!!!” I love all the comparisons to dolls and toilet roll holders, but the Grammys is the wild child of awards season, where surprises always happen. And think of it this way…as the years have gone on, Rihanna gets MORE covered up at the Grammys. She went from see through Gaultier, to custom Armani, to custom Alaia, and now this. I personally love it.

  28. JC February 9, 2015 at 3:51 am #

    This is a ridiculous dress, I wonder how she can sit down. I love her make-up tho

    • chryssa February 9, 2015 at 3:02 pm #

      exactly what you said!

  29. pinksugar February 9, 2015 at 3:48 am #

    This is so perfect I have no words. I would have never thought RiRi would go for this but I am oh so glad she did. These type of gowns are meant to be worn by huge stars, and this is proof as to why. This dress would consume most people but Rihanna totally owned it.

    • cherrysoftness February 10, 2015 at 3:41 am #

      I agree, she powered through the possibility of this gown overwhelming her. Her beauty look and superstar smile brought this home.

  30. ShortStuff February 9, 2015 at 3:42 am #

    Well, at least she has clothes on – a step in the right direction!

  31. CreoleLady February 9, 2015 at 3:38 am #

    She’s gorgeous, the dress is ridiculous, and I’m loving it all. Never a dull moment. This is the Grammys, the perfect venue. Bjork-level OTT-ness. Omg, I’m having a blast and so is she by the looks of that smile.

  32. Trinny February 9, 2015 at 3:37 am #

    I feel like almost every look we see from Rihanna is divisive but you have GOT to hand it to the girl, she never does things by halves. It took me a while to take it all in but she looks beautiful and she’s definitely got the confidence and the right kind of attitude to pull it off. So I’ve decided that this look gets a yes from me.

  33. Cindy February 9, 2015 at 3:37 am #

    You can call it high fashion or couture, I call it hideous and silly.

    • Cindy February 9, 2015 at 3:41 am #

      Ha! I just saw Alex had a similar statement up top. Great minds…

    • Lashae February 9, 2015 at 4:35 am #


    • amy February 9, 2015 at 8:21 am #

      preach! she looks pregnant, it’s shapeless, unflattering and it overwhelms her. sorry it’s not working.

  34. John February 9, 2015 at 3:37 am #

    This is something NOBODY will forget. Maybe it is not for everyone but I have to say that I love it more and more. If anyone is able to pull off this looks is Rihanna. She has a 10 on unexpected looks.

  35. Prudence February 9, 2015 at 3:35 am #

    she looks like a cupcake.
    this is super fun im sure but lets keep it real totally ridiculous.
    her hair is tragic tho.

  36. Valissa February 9, 2015 at 3:34 am #

    LMAO! I actually laughed out loud when I first saw it! I just couldn’t help myself and I know that Ri doesn’t take it seriously either. And that’s why I love it!
    She’s having fun and it’s clearly a fun dress! More power to her!

    • julyol1972 February 9, 2015 at 4:17 am #

      Yes! ITA!

  37. Sim February 9, 2015 at 3:33 am #

    I’m just glad she’s wearing clothes instead of gliding down stark naked.

  38. Shak February 9, 2015 at 3:32 am #

    This reminds me of Lena Dunham

  39. Pedro February 9, 2015 at 3:31 am #

    Riri looks flawless!

    Love it

  40. Nat39 February 9, 2015 at 3:31 am #

    Don’t like the gown itself or on her, too much, too sugary.

    • Yeliz February 9, 2015 at 7:11 am #

      Exactly and it doesn’t suit her at all, imo.

  41. Bailey February 9, 2015 at 3:30 am #

    This is just ridiculous, she is wearing a tent

  42. Colleen February 9, 2015 at 3:29 am #

    Toilet roll doll, that is all.

  43. Alex February 9, 2015 at 3:29 am #

    I don’t care that it is couture, or that it is high fashion, this is a toilet roll holder.
    It looks like she is smuggling her entourage in under the skirt!

  44. Athena February 9, 2015 at 3:29 am #

    Even though like FC I wanted to see this dress at Cannes,I love that Rihanna shocked us all and took a complete 180° from her usual style. She is one of the few who has the confidence pull off this look and not let the dress wear her. I don’t love the hair, but it’s still by far the most memorable of the night!

    • Catherine Kallon February 9, 2015 at 3:37 am #

      Yes, I didn’t think anyone would wear such a gown stateside due the the Lena Dunham factor.

      She totally rocked it.

  45. Christine February 9, 2015 at 3:27 am #

    Way too much fabric and overwhelming

  46. arwa February 9, 2015 at 3:25 am #


  47. Phoenix February 9, 2015 at 3:25 am #

    I totally remember FC calling this out for someone…..I hated the dress then, and I hate it now. It looks like shes 20 months pregnant. No so no for me.

  48. Fumi February 9, 2015 at 3:24 am #

    I love this look so much! I disliked the hair on TV, but it makes so much more sense in photographs… For me it’s the best look of the night!

  49. eva February 9, 2015 at 3:22 am #

    The outfit looks like Pink Bath Puff!

    • Phoenix February 9, 2015 at 3:28 am #

      and yes! your so right!

  50. sophie February 9, 2015 at 3:21 am #

    Her tackiness is called ‘fashion icon’, so I am relieved with this look.

    Her hair looks awful though.
