The 26-year-old music powerhouse is much discussed not for the music and not even for the Icon Award which she received from the CFDA but for what she wore to the annual gala held in New York City at at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center.

While many a would be Hollywood A list star or reality TV star looking to get some buzz will try the dare-to-wear it red carpet quasi-naked, wardrobe malfunction on purpose routine, it also works for a major star.

Over the years we have seen Rihanna grace the cover of many fashion magazines around the world including Vogue, and it’s not gone unnoticed over the years that were she not a singer she could have easily made her mark as a supermodel.

Out to reveal as many of her assets as possible, she exposed her breasts through the sheer fabric, and side-boob for good measure. The diaphanous material may have covered her derriere but did not hide it. She did hide her lady parts, however.

Yes, the dress evokes the Roaring Twenties, but the 1920s were never roaring quite this much! Fashionistas have identified the daring — indeed daredevil dress that Rihanna wore as a custom Adam Selman fishnet dress and matching headpiece festooned with tens of thousands of Swarovski crystals. She also wore matching over-the-elbow gloves and carried a tiny pink stole and wore jewels by Jacob and Co.

But needless to say, Rihanna herself has managed to upstage all those crystals and the jewels with her own exposed physique. A fashion success or fashion fail? It’s being debated quite spiritedly, but everyone wants to see the images in the meantime.

Look no further, you can see many more pictures of a nearly naked Rihanna in her sexy sheer dress below!
