“Detail of my incredible team at work with @official_swarovski and @rupaulsdragrace led by the true queen @meetingsmagazine #glamazon,”
Rihanna‘s stylist Mel Ottenberg and dress designer Adam Selman are opening up about the buzzworthy moment of the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards — the “so naked” dress that the Fashion Icon Award winner wore!
“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.”
“I would say at least eight people worked nonstop from 8 p.m. to 3 p.m. putting on the finishing touches.”
“We definitely wanted to make it a little bit scandalous,” Adam said about the look. “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.”
