Rihanna ditched her normally risqué style last night and went for pure sophistication at last night’s Zac Posen show at New York Fashion Week.
The 26-year-old swapped flesh-flashing for demure in her beautiful curve-hugging maroon frock when she arrived at the star-studded fashion show to support her fashion pal.
RiRi has worn Zac Posen gowns numerous times before – who could forget that huge fairytale showstopper from last year’s Diamond Ball – but we’re loving the discreetly sexy vibes of this hot little custom-designed number.
The plunging neckline offers a delicate peek of décolletage, while the fitted satin material showcased the Bajan beauty’s fabulous bod to perfection. Who needs racy cut-outs to make a sexy statement?
Rihanna teamed her dress with a pair of matching strappy sandals and a matching mani, whilst her toes boasted bright white varnish for contrast.
We’re also loving the singer’s pared down hair, which was looking pretty ’90s, simply swept up into a curly slicked back ponytail.
RiRi wasn’t the only red carpet surprise of the night, either. Katie Holmes looked strikingly different from her usual casual self when she turned up in a fluted black dress, working 1920s wet-look hair and a fierce red lip. How gorgeous!?
Zac Posen’s cut out frocks and clever tailoring was a total hit on the night, with the likes of Mary J. Blige and Coco Rocha also watching from the FROW.
Add to this Naomi Campbell closing the show in the most incredible gown and you’ve got one seriously good NYFW moment.
