She transitioned from flaunting her well-toned abdominal muscles to revealing a glimpse of her buttocks in a glamorous Stella McCartney dress, adorned in gold and featuring an audaciously plunging backline.
The vocalist hardly ever chooses to wear a bra, making a gown equipped with built-in covers for her nipples an ideal choice for her wardrobe. This particular gown was designed by Tom Ford, who expressed extreme happiness when he witnessed her donning it, even going as far as writing a heartfelt tribute dedicated to her breasts.
When it comes to Rihanna’s personal fashion statement, she has a unique take on the classic casual attire of jeans and a t-shirt. For her, a vibrant yellow Alexandre Vauthier dress with a daringly high slit and low neckline is the equivalent of this everyday outfit.
