Grammys 2015: Rihanna in Giambattista Valli Couture

Posted on February 09, 2015

We’ll give Ri credit for one thing here: she sure knows how to create a moment on the red carpet.

The “toilet paper cozy” and “Barbie cake” jokes were flying fast and furious on twitter before she even made it to the front door. We, for our parts, preferred the “pregnant drag queen” approach. All of which is probably fine by her. She doesn’t care if people joke. She only cares that they’re talking about her. Mission accomplished, we’d say. It was probably the Dress of the Night. Or in the Top three, anyway.

But we can’t say we like it. We’re all for drama and exuberance in fashion, but the proportions here are bad to the point of silly. Her entire torso is now six inches long. She has no waist, hips or legs. She’s a pair of bound breasts on a pile of laundry. Worst of all? The pinks clash. Just about the only good thing we can say about this look – aside from “It’s a hell of an attention-getter” – is that her makeup looks really pretty and soft.
