Style File: Rihanna’s Stylist Talks About Her ‘So Naked’ Dress At The CFDA Awards

It’s the super revealing red carpet moment that everybody is talking — and sadly, it doesn’t involve Aretha Franklin overexposing her breasts.

Rihanna‘s stylist Mel Ottenberg and dress designer Adam Selman are opening up about the completely sheer dress coming soon to Kordell Stewart’s next drag showcase that the goat whisperer donned while accepting Fashion Icon Award honors at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City last night.

“It’s so naked,” Mel told Style.com. “I don’t know if it’s shocking—I’m with her all the time, so my shock gauge is off, but I told her that I thought she was ready for this dress a while ago, and that I wasn’t. I’m the prude, and I’m just catching up.”

“So many people didn’t sleep last night,” he added. “I would say at least eight people worked nonstop from 8 p.m. last night to 3 p.m. today putting on the finishing touches.”

“We definitely wanted to make it a little bit scandalous,” Adam said about the custom fishnet dress, gloves and headscarf hand embellished with over 216,000 Swarovski crystals. “The dress is just fishnet and crystals and a couple of fingers crossed. But fashion is about beauty, and the [female] body is part of that.”

The “I Wanna Know” jokes write themselves. A mason jar full of corn liquor and trip to Miss Celie’s sewing shop later, singer Joe took to the stage to perform at ATL Live On The Park in The Big Peach this week. What’s your verdict on his style?

Casket Sharp: Barrington Levy

Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em.

Being the sole party responsible for making 98% of the general public (okay, just me) interested enough in Shyne’s debut album to download it illegally from Napster washes away the fashion faux pas sins committed by Barrington Levy but I decided to publish this post anyway as a cautionary tale to the baby boomers of Crunkland. Don’t do it, please don’t do it.

Inspired by Gregg Leakes calling Peter Thomas a nigga on last week’s episode of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and casually dropping the phrase “real talk” later in his subsequent response to the incident on Twitter, the dance hall icon took the stage alongside other reggae greats Shabba Ranks and Capleton at the Sounds Of Greatness Reloaded live show in New Jersey last week.

Dress your age and not your shoe size people.

Style Jury: Jackie Christie

Is Jackie Christie dressed to depress or dead fresh? Just like a teenage girl dating a dude who is a sneaker head for the first time,  auntie slipped on a pair of her best stretch leggings, Gucci baseball cap and a new pair of Jordans to step out to a viewing party for the reality series in Beverly Hills on Monday night (March 3). 

What’s your verdict on her style?

Don’t be surprised if your favorite stud rapper (I’m looking at you, Da Brat) pops up rocking a Jason Collins jersey in their latest misogyny-ladden music video. It’s a hot item.

NBA Senior Vice President for licensing and business affairs Vicky Picca announced on Tuesday (February 25) that Collins’ No. 98 Brooklyn Nets uniform is the top-seller on NBA.com, besting the likes of LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin. ”Jason Collins’ return to the league represents a historic moment, and fans continue to show their support by (buying) Jason’s jersey,” said Picca.

The 13-year league veteran — who became first openly gay man to play in the NBA  last week – plans to wear No. 98 starting tonight against the Trail Blazers as a tribute to Matthew Shepard, who was murdered in 1998 because he was gay.
