Rihanna See Threw Dress
June 4, 2014 by staff
Rihanna See Threw Dress, Rihanna has always very categorically stated that she’s not a role model and doesn’t market herself as such, which is probably a savvy move considering most stars who promote themselves as holier-than-thou almost always end up falling off their pedestal.
But this CFDA photo, where she is photographed wearing a see-through dress while picking up her Fashion Icon award, is the straw that broke the feminist’s back.
This feminist’s back, to be precise.
Such a dress would be fine in the pages of Vogue, much harder to keep off the smartphones of schoolkids.
This dress, judging by her ‘I dare you to say something’ stance in the photo, is a statement. Yet it tells you nothing about her brain, what she’s thinking or her achievements – this just reduces her to her body parts, and that I do have a problem with.
Some of the defence may be that she gets away with it – Jezebel congratulated her on for being so confident to pull it off.
The latter may be true, but you don’t see people handing German naturists awards for being body confident.
If I sound like I’m skirting around the issue, that’s because there’s no way of saying ‘Rihanna, please put some clothes on’ without sounding like an utter prude.
Rihanna’s confidence and don’t-care-attitude is one of the things I love about her, so I think what pains me about this photo is that it’s really hard to respect this. That she looks stunning is not called into question – of course she does, she’s beautiful and she’s Rihanna.
But at what point does confidence bleed into the bloody stupid?
