Rihanna’s See-Through Dior Dress Wasn’t Sheer At First – See Photos
Since announcing her pregnancy in January, Rihanna has been creating maternity look after maternity look and one of the most breathtakingly beautiful was the sheer lace dress she wore to the Dior show in Paris. However, it turns out that the dress in question was not Actually sheer at all — it was an executive fashion decision made by Rihanna and her stylist.
In her (seventh) vogue cover, Rihanna revealed that she and stylist Jahleel Weaver decided to remove the lining from the lace dress before the show, and the decision has really set the tone for Rihanna’s maternity looks so far. “Rihanna is so fearless, so for me it’s always a question of, ‘How do we make this look meaningful for who she is?’ Weaver told the magazine.
“For me, this dress is actually the closest thing to maternity clothes I’ve worn so far,” Rihanna also shared. “We hadn’t really done any queens all this time. So I was like, let’s go ma’am! She styled the lace dress with chain jewelry and Savage X Fenty underwear, naturally. “Listen,” she joked. “They were going to see my panties regardless. So they better be mine.
Dior dress aside, Rihanna said vogue that she always knew she wasn’t going to wear “traditional” maternity clothes during her pregnancy. “When I found out I was pregnant, I thought, ‘There’s no way I’m going shopping in the maternity aisle’. I’m sorry, it’s too much fun to dress up. I’m not going to let that part go away because my body is changing,” she shared.
So far in her pregnancy, we’ve seen her in everything from Jean Paul Gaultier suspenders to diamond body chains, not to mention the vintage Chanel puffer jacket and jeans she wore in her announcement photos.
