Of all the celebrities who have participated in the naked dress trend—Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, and countless others—we’d be willing to say that Rihanna pulls it off better than any of them. Her iconic Swarovski-encrusted Adam Selman dress from the 2014 CFDA Awards landed her a permanent place in the naked dress hall of fame (and our hearts).
“I wanted to wear something that looked like it was floating on me,” she told the magazine of her iconic CFDAs look. “But after that, I thought, okay, we can’t do this again for a while. No nipples, no sexy sh*t, or it’s going to be like a gimmick. That night was like a last hurrah; I decided to take a little break from that and wear clothes.”
The tides truly have turned, though we can’t say we’re too upset—she looks amazing whether she’s choosing to wear clothes or nay. Keep scrolling to see some of our favorite Rihanna looks of all time!
