Hideous or Amazing: Rihanna goes hard

Bad news Versace, an extensive poll spanning continents and at least three people has declared the £410 World Cup t-short hideous by a margin of 60% to 40%. (I expect a grovelling apology and offer of free stuff in my inbox within the hour).

But this week there could only be one outfit to pick, because all other ‘dresses’ paled into insignificance next to the inimitable Rihanna at the CFDA Fashion Awards, where incidentally, she was presented with the 2014 Fashion Icon Award by Anna Wintour.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking…



MTV VMA’s: The good, the bad and Nicki Minaj

For me the best dressed at the MTV Video Music Awards was Emma Watson, partly because there was a spate of fairly bland dresses, with Watson offering colour and print, but mainly because the Peter Pilotto dress suits her perfectly and is simply gorgeous. I also loved Taylor Swift in her extraordinarily impractical but stunning white suit by J Mendel, and Zoe Saldana in Salvatore Ferragamo which looks exquisitely detailed and saved from obscurity by its long sleeves.

On the other hand, for me Rihanna can’t quite pull off a white dress, cut oddly short with fabric gathering unflatteringly at her hips and worn braless. Alicia Keys’ dress is not even remotely defensible as it manages to be both boring and hideous all in one go. And Jessica Szohr manages to destroy a pretty black dress with some bizarre styling choices.

And I can’t leave this post without giving some space to Nicki Minaj, and in a random way I think I kind of, sort of, maybe like it. Shhhh…


Some of my favourite editorial shots of Rihanna are below in honour of me finally getting to see her live at Wireless!
