Rihanna was luminous in yellow at her Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Spring/Summer 2018 launch during New York Fashion Week in 2017. The beauty wore a banana-yellow Oscar de la Renta two-piece look — a knotted crewneck crop top and full high-waisted skirt with a tumbling hem and side slit.
When Rihanna goes to the Met Gala, she always brings her A-game. The singer wore a Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons gown dotted with scraps and petals of fabric with red gladiator heels that wrapped all the way up to her thighs to the 2017 Met Gala. She completed the stunning look with a sky-high bun and intense red eye makeup.

Marvelous in mint! Rihanna arrived at the British Fashion Awards in London in December 2019 in this lovely pastel green satin minidress from her own Fenty line. When it came time to style the frock, she accessorized with matching gloves, a wrap, pointy-toe pumps and a thick, sparkly choker.
Rihanna brought glam, high style to Paris Fashion Week in 2015. She dazzled in a fierce bubblegum-pink Christian Dior coat dress with one plush fur sleeve and a printed neckline that she paired with knee-high patent-leather boots, a turquoise handbag and emerald and ruby statement earrings. Chic!
Rihanna proved she deserved her Style Icon award at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City. The singer bared it all in a sheer, Swarovski crystal-encrusted Adam Selman gown with a soft pink fur shawl, bedazzled headpiece and nude thong. RiRi's only regret about the outfit? That her undergarment wasn't bedazzled. "I just liked it better without the lines underneath. Could you imagine the CFDA dress with a bra?" she said during a 2016 Vogue interview. "I would slice my throat. I already wanted to, for wearing a thong that wasn't bedazzled. That's the only regret I have in my life."
Rihanna brought sexy back (sorry, Justin!) to the Grammy Awards in February 2012. The fashion icon wore a racy black backless Armani dress with a plunging V-neck bodice and paired it with a gold clutch, black strappy heels and gold jewelry.

Rihanna brought Old Hollywood glam to the 2007 World Music Awards, where she wore an emerald-green satin mermaid gown with a classic red lip, gold jewelry and that "Good Girl Gone Bad" haircut that jump-started her style-icon status.
Rihanna shut down the red carpet the 2018 Met Gala while simultaneously executing the theme to perfection. That year's "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" theme inspired the superstar to sport this silver Maison Margiela combination that gave us sartorial pope vibes. Her collared robe dripped in jeweled embellishments and she accessorized with dark gunmetal gray Louboutins and — of course — a papal mitre, a headdress worn by popes and bishops, in homage to the Catholic theme, designed by Stephen Jones.
Rihanna took another fashion risk that paid off at the 2014 amfAR L.A. Inspiration Gala. The Barbados-born beauty wore a white Tom Ford gown featuring a sheer bodice with strategically placed purple sequins, a bold slit and cut-out detailing. She paired the dress with a white choker, thigh-high stockings and metallic purple heels.
