Rihanna’s ‘Bazaar’ Arabia Cover Is the Swarovski Dress’s Equal, Not Its Opposite

World-renowned soccer authority Twitter troll Rihanna’s latest glossy cover is out. It’s not for Vogue, which is currently busy calling out the scourge of lady-centric Facebook groups, or even fellow usual suspects Elle or Vanity Fair. Posted to social media last night, the Ruven Afanador shots are for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, the Middle Eastern offshoot of a magazine that’s recently taken some flak for continuing to employ Terry Richardson. Given that the cover advertises “Rihanna of Arabia” as a guide to “The New Modesty: Cover Up in Style,” it’s not too surprising that the most revealing outfit in the shoot is the thigh-length Dolce & Gabbana dress Rih’s wearing on the cover. … Read More

Rihanna’s Sheer CFDA Dress Is a Brilliant Instagram Prank — and an Empowering Statement

If you have a pulse and an internet connection, you’ve surely seen it by now: last night at the 2014 CFDA Awards, Rihanna wore a sheer Adam Selman gown, exposing her breasts (and behind) beneath a translucent sheen of glittering Swarovski crystals. Yes, the dress was was daring and risky, and people still seem to be struggling to get their heartbeats back down to a normal level. But the bigger shock is just that — the fact that people are still shocked by Rihanna, still aghast at an exposed bosom, still adhering to these strange Puritan standards of censorship that we should have shucked off four centuries ago. … Read More

30 Best Celebrity Instagrams From the 2014 Met Gala

Last night was the glitziest, most glamorous evening in the fashion universe: the Met Costume Institute Gala. Also known as the Met Ball or “Fashion Prom,” the Gala brings Hollywood and the fashion industry together to celebrate the opening of the Costume Institute’s latest exhibit. This year’s exhibit is a retrospective on Charles James, known for his structured aesthetic and glamorously elegant gowns. Most of last night’s ball gowns didn’t stray far from a classic style, but as the Met Gala is known for experimental fashion (remember Kim Kardashian’s wearable Givenchy garden from last year?) there were a few outliers. Namely, Rihanna (who stunned in Stella McCartney), Cara Delevingne (also in Stella), and everyone who wore Prada — including the normally flawless Lupita Nyong’o, who was some kind of mermaid trapped in a fishing net?
