All eyes were on the red carpet (and on Rihanna’s barely-there dress) during last night’s CFDA Fashion Awards. Hosted by film director and screenwriter John Waters, the annual event recognizes the outstanding contributions made to American fashion by individuals from all areas of the industry.
Nominated for Fashion Icon of the year, Rihanna stole the show in a see-through, Swarovski-covered (200,000 of them to be precise) dress designed by Adam Selman. To top it off, she paired it with a matching head wrap and pink fur stole perfectly embodying her fearless take on old-school glamour.

The office is buzzing with talk of the stunning outfits seen at last night’s “Oscars of fashion”, the 2014 Met Gala!
This year, the themed gala honoured the great American couturier, Charles James, whose classically glamourous designs were popular from the ‘30s into the ‘70s. His show-stopping ball gowns were famous for their detailed draping and intricate structuring, seen on many fashion icons of the time.
Needless to say, the celebs did not disappoint! From detailed beading (all hail Queen Bey) to old-fashioned glamour (can we talk Leighton Meester?!) we’ve rounded up some of our favourite looks from last night’s red carpet…
