Rihanna at the Oscars 2023
Rihanna showed up on the champagne carpet at the 2023 Oscars in a Alaïa leather dress, custom made. Worn over a sheer turtleneck bodysuit, the gown featured a dramatic train and strategic cutouts at the legs. To complete the look, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, pendants with brown diamonds and a bold cocktail ring by Moussaieff.
For the exhibition, then, she chose a second precious look, made of lace and jewels. The black bra embellished with a shower of crystals, with transparent straps, was paired with black pants with a gold floral design. The outfit, custom made for her by John Galliano’s Maison Margiela, was completed with black pumps, black leather gloves, layered diamond necklaces, a thick diamond bracelet worn over the gloves, and diamond pendants.
At the end of the performance, the audience gave Rihanna a standing ovation.
