“Incredible style can help take a talented young woman from a small island to the world stage”  is what Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue, Anna Wintour said last night about this year’s CFDA Fashion Icon recipient, Rihanna.

The 27-year-old pop music diva has always had her finger on the pulse of cutting edge fashion and last night’s look was indicative of her fearless style.  The Bajan singer arrived to the lavish ceremony wearing nothing but a crystal headscarf and an Adam Selman sheer gown with fur stole.  The jaw dropping gown was clearly inspired by old Hollywood Glamour a la Josephine Baker and we think Badgirl RiRi nailed it!

Check out Rihanna’s acceptance speech below, where she declared, “Fashion has always been my defense mechanism. Even as a child I remember thinking, she can beat me but she can not beat my outfit!”
