YASSS. Remember when Rihanna showed us a sneak peek of her new dreaded ’do yesterday? Well, we got to see it in full force last night when she performed live on the American Idol season finale! She sang “Where Have You Been?” in an all black Adam Selman loincloth number amidst tons of lasers, fog, and scantily-clad backup dancers. Silver spikes and gems dangled from her black bra top, which she paired with leather belt and a slit-up-to-the-waist skirt. She finished the look with lace-up boots, Pamela Love earrings, and a crocodile Lynn Ban cuff. She pulled her dreads up into a high ponytail and sported a KILLER smoky eye to finish the look.
American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez also shared the stage with RiRi last night in a shimmery two-piece ensemble. She sported a studded and rhinestone embellished bra from Versace’s spring 2012 collection paired with super sparkly harem sweatpants. To accessorize, she added some crystal drop earrings and a diamond cross necklace. For her beauty look, she kept her sun-kissed locks down and wore a swipe of royal purple eyeshadow on her lids to add a punch of color to her monochrome ensemble. We gotta give it up for these ladies baring their super-toned bellies in nothing but a bedazzled bra because, I mean, we can barely wear this on the beach, let alone on a stage DANCING while millions of people watch us. But tell us, which two-piece ensemble do you like better—Rihanna’s all black look or J.Lo’s sparkly white outfit?
