Rihanna was by far the most memorable of the night presented with the Fashion Icon Award by Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour who Praised abitur the musician for her captivating stories to tell through the boldness and beauty of clothes.
I quite rrespect what Anna Wintour dictates, but to be an icon one must be elegant, classy and memorable. Rihanna might be the last, but her latest attire at the red carpet was everything but elegant. It made her look like a very expensive escort... Quite a pity.
