2022 was a special year for Rihanna. Her entry into 2023 though looks mighty good already. The Golden Globe Awards is one of cinema's most special nights and Rihanna made it more special with her presence as a pleasant surprise. She may have skipped the red carpet but entered the ballroom in her luxuriously glam black dress to leave us delightfully satiated for the night. A black gown for the red carpet is a fashion no-brainer. The task at hand is how you can make a black dress look so unique that it does all the talking. Rihanna chose Schiaparelli's structured aesthetic, and she chose it well. Known to create gilded magic, Rihanna's plain black dress without any embellishment was still far from the basic.
The plain black silhouette custom black ballgown gets its structured finesse from the ruched gathering that runs down the gorgeous velvet bustier. Victorian gloves are the fashion world's newest obsession, and we may have found a new fan in Rihanna too. The dress is topped with a voluminous black bonded velvet stole that in very literal terms, stole the show.
She picked a bejewelled Roger Vivier clutch, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, and a generous dose of diamonds courtesy of Chopard to complete her look. The subtle glam with a fresh, dewy complexion and a pink tinge to go balanced Rihanna's Princess Lea-Esque twisty updo hairstyle.
Rihanna was nominated for Original Song and even though she may have lost to RRR's Naatu Naatu, she won the fashion game, as always.Comments
