Lend me your ear for a moment. I’ve been feeling complain-y about red carpets as of late, bristling at the lack of risks being taken, and feeling nostalgic for the times when, say, Bjork would wear a swan and everyone lost their minds. Guess what. That swan designer, Marjan Pejoski, went on to create KTZ, one of the most important musician-fan labels OUT. She was 20 years ahead of her time! The red carpet should be a place where style is DEFINED!
ANYWAY, one person who consistently Brings It (capital B-I, because she’s a Bad one), is Rihanna, because doy.
Tonight, at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, she did not disappoint. Perhaps an homage to Coachella, she looked like she straight-up came from the pool to the carpet, wearing a silken robe and bodysuit/maillot/teddy(?) jammer—both in glowing, angelic white—and strappy stilettos to match. With a simple silver pendant and her hair pulled into a messy updo, she was giving boudoir realness but in a really specifically late-1980s way. She looked like she’d stepped from the pages of a Danielle Steele novel, putting a little seduction on her day planner (Drizzy, perhaps? *crossing fingers*) before she hits the boardroom to CRUSH SOME RIVAL CFOs. You know?! Rihanna, please do everything that you do when you do it like this at all times.
