This year's Grammy Awards got an extra dose of red hot when Rihanna stepped out in this custom Alaia gown and $2 million in Neil Lane jewels. That night, she performed twice and took home one award for best short form video for "We Found Love."
Another sheer look from Rihanna, this time at the 2010 American Music Awards where she chose a body-skimming look from Elie Saab to compliment her burgundy curls.
Who can forget this? While her face looked every so coy, Riri worked it in this sheer Jean Paul Gaultier gown that left little to the imagination with the illusion of nothing underneath. Oh Rih, behave!
The Costume Institute's 2010 Met Gala wouldn't be anything without this fiery look from Rihanna in a lacy Stella McCartney gown with a sheer side panel (not shown).
Who can forget that infamous GQ cover with Rihanna clad in nothing more than an All Saints jacket? While it serves as our gym inspiration, this '90s-inspired look from Calvin Klein that she wore to the magazine's Man of the Year party has been added to our spring/summer wishlist.
If you're in love with Rihanna but fail to know who Adam Selman is, you certainly can't be a true fan of the Navy leader. The designer has outfitted her for everything from the 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show to last year's MTV Video Music Awards. He also was her go-to for the Los Angeles premiere of her first feature film, Battleship.
Channeling Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface, Rihanna worked with Armani to design this custom, backless black dress with a thigh high slit and plunging neckline.
All gold everything: from her hair, to her skin, and of course this Givenchy Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown, Rihanna's 2012 BRIT Awards look was a definite head turner.
In an era when the good girl had already gone bad, Rihanna began to become every fashion designer's red-carpet dream with her versatile sense of style. This ivory look from Stephane Rolland at the 2009 Glamour Awards shows an angelic — but still sexy — side of the star.
Continuing her Scarface streak, Rihanna wore this emerald Stella McCartney dress to the designer's Fall 2012 show in London.
The world's favorite island gyal, Rihanna, turns 25 today! With her number one album, buzzworthy London Fashion Week debut with River Island, and a new deal as MAC Cosmetics' latest celebrity collaborator, it's safe to say that RiRi is having the time of her life. But it wouldn't be right if we fêted the "Unapologetic" badgal's birthday without a trip down memory lane to revisit some of her hottest red carpet reveals. From the skin-baring Armani dress she donned in a nod to Michelle Pfeiffer at last year's Grammy Awards, to the sheer Jean Paul Gaultier gown she opted for in 2010, we've got to give it up to the Bajan beauty and her fearlessness when it comes to setting the red carpet on fire.
