That Dress | Too Revealing?

So lets talk about that dress, the one that Rihanna wore at the beginning of June to the CDFA awards. Rihanna is known for her out there attention seeking style and it seems she loves nothing better than to shock the media and general public with her attire. But when it comes to this dress, there is a rather large divide between those who thought it was good and the ones who thought it was bad.

Some people have stated that it was a beautiful show of feminism and she should be applauded for her bravery in wearing something that leaves very little to the imagination, whereas others have criticised Rihanna for not being a good role model and sending out a clear message that it's ok to walk about in a state of undress in public, and that it was all done to steal the lime light and benefit no one other than herself.

I am a fan of Rihanna, I enjoy her music, admire her sense of style even when she is at times shameless in her approach to what is deemed acceptable. I think she radiates self confidence and sends out the message that it is ok for women to be forthright about their sexuality rather than having to play the wall flower because it is more socially acceptable. She does at times make questionable choices in things she says and does, but at the end of the day she is only human and we all make mistakes, but the rest of us have the luxury of being able to do that behind closed doors away from the harsh words of the wolds media.

Like it or not she is a mega star, known world wide and can't even blow her nose without everyone hearing about it. When you combine this with a person that adores attention and the ability to shock, it is only ever going to go one way, and shock is quite simply what she does, and undeniably she does it very well. She is shameless, young, wild and rich and lives her life through a lens and clearly enjoys doing so as she plays up to it often.

I personally liked the dress she donned, I thought she looked gorgeous in it and although you could see every inch of her flesh through the glistening of the crystals there was still a sense of elegance and glamour to the outfit, rather than it having a trashy feel that would have been more in keeping with the style of someone like Miley Cyrus. I applaud Rihanna for having the confidence and audacity to wear such a dress, if I had a body like hers then I'm sure I would want to show it off as well!

What are your thoughts on her outfit? Are you for or against?


  1. I thought she wore this dress really well and although she was just about naked she looked so classy! Definitely agree with you that it is how you wear something, someone like Miley Cyrus wearing this dress would just radiate "trashy"!

    1. Good to hear I'm not the only one. I loved it.


  2. Maxi flower girl dresses have been around since the 60's. This particular cut was said to have been the brainchild of Oscar de la Renta. It first debuted in 1968 as part of a collection by Elizabeth Arden Salon. The appearance of the maxi dress in the film, Doctor Zhivago also made women from everywhere around the world take notice and swoon over this new style of a floor length dress.
