Rihanna at the Christian Dior Fashion Show

Posted on October 01, 2016

Rihanna attends the Christian Dior Spring 2017 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week in Paris, France.

 

Well, at least it’s better than the last thing we saw her wearing.

But only a little bit, if we’re being honest about it.

If you look at the runway shot, you can see – or at least, we see – that the proportions work slightly better on the model. They’re not great, but better. That would indicate, seeing as how CFDA winner Rihanna herself is having trouble making this thing sit on her the way it’s supposed to, that this garment is the epitome of the FMO dress. For Models Only. It might help if it was buttoned up a bit more, but we think it would take a lot of editing for this garment to remotely work. The sleeves alone need to be torn down and build from the foundation up again. But huge sleeves are trendy this season, so we’ll just be over in the corner, harrumphing away.
