dior2_AnnexMagazine

Last night, the fashion industry’s most highly regarded elite boarded chartered “Dior” ferries and crossed the East River to Brooklyn, New York for the Dior Cruise Show 2015. Celebrities in attendance included Rihanna, Margot Robbie, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Nicola Peltz, and many more. Dior even flew in 120 editors from various countries like Japan, Russia, U.K. and Germany. Overall, the guest list included more than a thousand names.

The runway itself took place in Brooklyn’s Navy Yard, right on the water. Guests wear seated on specially constructed bleachers at window level. The show was a fast-paced viewing of 66 of Dior’s latest looks, mostly consisting of blacks and greys, with the occasional pop of red and pastel blue.

The overall atmosphere of the night reflected the location, as Dior carried the navy/ocean theme throughout the event.

Moments You Might’ve Missed From the 2014 Met Gala

The Met Gala has becoming one of the most highly anticipated events of the season. Bikini season is near, so since we can’t binge on chocolate and wine, we’ll binge on the red carpet looks instead! Though some people hit the nail on the head last night, a lot of people left us quite confused. This year’s theme, Charles James: Beyond Fashion, brought the best of the best in the industry. From much talked about star couples like Kimye, to Beyonce and hubby Jay Z to Anna Wintour herself there were lots of amazing, and shocking red carpets moments, as well as the hours leading up to the event. Check out the best moments!

Rihanna Makes Jaws Drop with her Vogue Cover for March

Rihanna on the cover of Vogue = Perfection. The edgy, gorgeous singer was interviewed for the March issue, along with a photo shoot that will make your jaw drop. Rihanna talked makeup and wardrobe, explaining one of her unique fashion rules she lives by: ”If I’m wearing a top, I don’t wear a bra. If I’m wearing a bra, I just wear a bra.” This is evident in the issues cover and even more evident than that is how much she rocks the look.

In addition RiRi discusses her love for menswear and why the juxtaposition of a woman wearing mens clothing is so incredibly sexy. She talks about her childhood explaining, “When I was thirteen or fourteen, I didn’t want to wear what my mom wanted me to wear. I was very much a boy in my style, my demeanor. All my friends were guys. I loved things that boys did. I loved being easy with my clothes. I loved wearing hats and scarves and snapbacks on my head. It was my way of rebelling. I wanted to dress like my brother. After a while, it was just easier for Mom to dress us both the same. We wore the same jeans, the same T-shirts.”

A girl who prefers mens clothes and is even sexier in them than in feminine clothing?

Only Rihanna.

Rita Ora is the New Face of DKNY

It’s a BFFL war. After reports of the wifey-ship fizzling between supermodel Cara Delevingne and singer Rita Ora (which the stars have denied) it seems that the current or ex-wifeys are now after each others careers! Replacing Delevigne for DKNY’s Resort 2014 collection, Rita Ora is the new face of the brand—which will be quite the change from Cara’s famously thick brows that have repped DKNY since 2012.

Cara is also supposedly taking a pause from modeling to break into the music industry… wonder if she will pull a Lana Del Rey and leak a song bashing her ex-best friend. Only time will tell.

In case you missed some of the dirt… After Delevingne interrupted Rita Ora’s performance at a DKNY event earlier this month, the singer’s team suggested she steer clear of Cara. Since then the two starlets have been pictured with replacement buddies–Cara with Rihanna and Rita with Stella McCartney. The famous duo has since tweeted loving messages defending their friendship, thus denying reports. But the instagram behaviors don’t lie.

The Revealing Tour Continues. Next Stop: Rihanna

 

The World Diamond Tour must be partnering with Lady GaGa’s bear all show, because the BadGal that we all love has one-upped the Mother Monster. Stepping outside a building in Stockholm, Sweden yesterday, RiRi was sporting gym shorts, ankle strapped mini heels, a mesh T, and… drum roll… no bra. Let me just say, if there were any lingering questions about the nipple ring we thought we saw at the Chanel show, they have been confirmed.

To be honest, we’re not all that baffled by Rihanna’s scandalously exposed body. What I think really has us shocked is the outfit itself—athletic shorts, a cap, and a mesh soccer-styled shirt paired with red lipstick, heels, and a thick gold necklace? What is going on here?

If Lady GaGa and Ri are any indicators, us ladies will be caught in a Catch-22: we’ll be rocking either a bra and no shirt, or a see-through shirt and no bra. Choices. In the mean time, take a scroll through more of RiRi’s revealing looks.
