While it could be argued that Rihanna stayed on the safer side with that CBS nudity code in her red carpet custom Alaia dress, let’s be real. There’s NO denying the coverage— or lack thereof— when Riri took the stage. She first stepped out with Mikky Ekko to sing her single “Stay,” dressed in a body-hugging slip dress also by Alaia. The pop star’s been rocking the underwear-as-outerwear thing nonstop recently (coughTerryRichardsoncough), but her initial stage look was simple, chic, and no frills…much like the stripped-down performance itself. But don’t worry, y’all! Obviously it was only a matter of time before Rihanna sent audience hearts racing (and people at home WILLING for a wardrobe malfunction) in her crop top and striped skirt combo during the Bob Marley tribute with Bruno Mars and Sting.
The glittery gold and white striped pencil skirt and tank top by Luciano Soprani seemed innocent enough, but we clocked in several times where we ALSO bore witness to Ri’s impossible-to-ignore chest tat (hey, lifting your arms in a crop top will do that!). But, um, we’re going to go out on a limb here and say that nobody was complaining about the peekaboo underboob action. Well, except for the CBS officials, anyway…
Chic and subtle or straight-up sexy: which of Rihanna’s Grammy performance looks did you like the best?
