This morning in Paris, Karl Lagerfeld and his Chanel team debuted their Fall/Winter 2014 Paris Haute Couture collection. By sheer virtue of the designs, the haute couture show guest lists are distinctly more elite than ready-to-wear (specialty pieces versus IRL clothes) which makes for a heavily curated front row. We weren’t at all surprised to see that Barbadian beauty Rihanna made the cut (#CCcertified), but we WERE surprised by what she wore: little more than a giant cardigan!
Yep, some people might think a Chanel show warrants a well-tailored outfit with maybe a high neck or some clever interpolation of ruffles or at least shrugging on a bouclé jacket, but not for Rihanna. Rih swaddled herself in an ivory, almost floor-sweeping cardi and DUH-RIPPING in pearls of all shapes, sizes, and strand lengths. The thing that’s impressive about Fenty’s outfit, though, is her ability to make two arguably octogenarian staples the sexiest things we’ve ever seen. What’s more, it’s educational! Because it taught us that Rih has a nipple ring… *GULP*
