Was Rihanna secretly a flapper in a past life? ‘Cause her latest outfit certainly makes a case. The always-fashionable multihyphenate stepped out for dinner at Carbone in NYC on Tuesday night rocking a sexy, 1920-style slip dress and pearls that could’ve easily been from The Great Gatsby’s wardrobe closet. Loose-fitting and covered in too many sheer lace panels to count, her satin Vaquera dress is technically a teddy, which explains the garter straps and extra lace material dangling from its hemline. Can’t you see Daisy Buchanan sporting something similar to one of Jay Gatsby’s exquisite parties?
Rihanna amped up the Old Hollywood glam by styling her lingerie-inspired dress with layered pearls that extended all the way down to her thighs, a gold pendant necklace, Manolo Blahnik slingback pumps, hoop earrings, and a velvet Gucci bag from the brand’s fall 1997 collection, the latter of which she also wore out in the Big Apple last week. Take an up-close look at Rih’s sheets-to-streets style moment ahead, and keep reading to shop her exact Vaquera dress, which is miraculously still in stock online.
