Rucuss staffJune 3, 2014

Rihanna left little to the imagination at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards at Lincoln Center in New York.

Rihanna turned heads in a sheer custom-made dress designed by Adam Selman. The dress, which was covered in 216,000 Swarovski crystals barely covered Rihanna breasts. The singer wore a nude thong underneath. The Pour It Up singer also wore a Adam Selman headscarf, gloves, a pink fur stole to cover her lady parts and a Jacob & Co. ring

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour presented RiRi with the 2014 Fashion Icon Award. Previous honorees include Lady Gaga, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman, Iman, Chrissy Teigen, Rachel Roy and Johnny Depp.

“Growing up fashion was a defense mechanism,” said Rihanna while accepting the award. “As a child I remember saying: she can beat me but she can’t beat my outfit.”
