KINGSTON, Jamaica -- R&B singer Rihanna surprised fans when she appeared on the red carpet at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards in New York Monday evening dressed in a sparkling see-through gown, creating an instant buzz on social media network.
The ‘Live Your Life’ artiste drew comments from fans and critics alike who praised as well as hurled insults at the revealing outfit she wore to a black tie event on one of fashion’s biggest nights.
“Badgalriri obviously stole the spotlight…
The catch: she did this while wearing absolutely nothing”.
This is what social media had to say:
