Along with the Met Ball, the CFDA Awards is one of the biggest nights of the year in fashion. The 2014 edition took place at New York City’s Lincoln Center on Monday night, supporting this year’s Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards honorees. Among them, Rihanna, who nearly bared it all with a shimmering sheer see-through slip dress covered in 216,000 Swarovski crystals. Custom made by designer Adam Selman, RiRi only wore G-string bottom underneath, exposing her chest. Along with matching elbow-length gloves, a light fur scarf, and her hair wrapped in a metallic scarf, the 26-year-old pop star posed for photos on the rec carpet including a shot with President of MAC Cosmetics John Dempsey.

Rihanna is being honored with the Fashion Icon Award for pushing the boundaries and never playing safe when it comes to her personal style. She joins a list of past honorees that include Lady Gaga, Johnny Depp, Kate Moss, and Nicole Kidman.
