On Monday, June 2, 2014, pop singer Rihanna, 26, stepped out into Manhattan clad in little more than a smile and her vapid imagination. There, at the intersection of celebrity narcissism and plummeting standards, the Barbados-born hottie looked into the cameras. And she might as well have raised a silent middle finger to her adoring, young female fans.
At Lincoln Center to receive a Fashion Icon Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America, RiRi failed to conceal two small but valuable pieces of personal real estate: her nipples. She pranced into the spotlight looking like a poorly put-together streetwalker, wearing a sheer gown created by designer Adam Selman. It was decorated with 216,000 Swarovski crystals that left her areolas exposed, along with a backside obscured only by a thong, and revealing a good portion naked of her estimated 23 tattoos.
In a roomful of women and men who looked as if they were clad by the Taliban in comparison, she was handed a trophy by Vogue magazine editrix Anna Wintour, who tacitly gave approval to a getup that, should my teenage daughter try to wear. Many of those who work in the rag trade have declared the sartorial catastrophe a triumph.
But ordinary Joes and Janes, some of them parents, are appalled. She is a beautiful pop star and I think she has creative license, argued Los Angeles-based designer Sue Wong.
She said Rihanna, in a sparkly head schmatte, elbow-length gloves and clutching a faux (we hope) fur stole, was channeling 1920s screen siren Josephine Baker. I think she looked drop-dead glamorous. Rihanna looked gorgeous aside from her nipples showing, said New York-based stylist Oksana Pidhoreckyj.
I think she got the attention marc she was looking for. But Mike Peters, a Brooklyn father of a young daughter, spoke for dads and moms everywhere when he told me, I think she looked slutty.
Female modesty and decency have been on the decline for years. Last week, Scout Willis, 22, the daughter of Hollywood royalty Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, walked through Manhattans East Village with bare breasts, which is legal in New York, to protest the decision of Instagram, the picture-sharing online social network, to delete her account.
She said she was punished for posting a pic of herself in a sheer top and another of a jacket featuring two topless female friends. I understand that people dont want to take me seriously.
