Rihanna Dons Gothic Look at 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards, Wins Artist of the Year
Rihanna continued to surprise with her wardrobe choice at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards last night (May 1). The ‘Pour It Up’ singer brought goth to the red carpet.
She donned a floor-length, black, backless lace number that showed practically every part of her body (except the skivvies she wore underneath). Rihanna also rocked a green lipsitck and had her hair in knots. To add more edge to her look, she wore a leather motorcycle jacket (worn over her shoulders only of course) to tie everything together. While we know her to take risks on the red carpet, this was definitely a look that was not only experimental but actually looked pretty good on her.
Fashion aside, Rihanna walked away a big winner at the first annual award show. Not only was she named Artist of the Year and won Song of the Year for ‘Stay,’ she also earned the Best Fan Army nod — an award that honors an artist’s fan base. Rihanna’s Navy beat out Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters, Ariana Grande’s Arianators, Taylor Swift’s Swifties, Austin Mahone’s Mahomies and Demi Lovato’s Lovatics. Plus she snagged the title of Hip-Hop/R&B Song of the Year for ‘Pour It Up.’
“It’s not easy what we do,” she says as she accepted the Fans Army award. “It’s very difficult at times. It’s a lot of pressure to be a lot of things. And I’ve never felt comfortable being anything other than myself, and I just thank my fans for being supportive and embracing that.”
