Rihanna Goes From Ghetto To Glam In Marchesa At Time's 100 Most Influential Gala

Grazia25 April 2012

If anyone knows how to surprise us, it's Rihanna. The last time we were trilling about her red carpet swishes, she was wowing the world with a set of silky pyjamas by Emilio Pucci at the 'Battleship' world premiere in Tokyo. Then we saw her rocking her signature attitude-y style in an array of retro T-shirts that just got us buzzing about '80s cool. But nothing could have prepared us for her super-duper glam turn at Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World Gala last night.

Ri-Ri arrived at the swanky shindig at the Lincoln Center in New York City wearing a jaw-droppingly gorgeous gown with a strapless structured bodice and voluminous skirt. It comes courtesy of label-for-glossy-lovers, Marchesa and is in a delicious fuchsia tone. The songstress topped off the ladylike look with a pair of Christian Louboutins with a crystallised heel to match her tumbling black curls and a dark berry lip. She's more Disney Princess pretty than good-girl-gone-bad minxy, no?

Of course, the tough girl ingredients are still in the mix — note the grungey undercut, eye-wincingly sharp talons and collarbone tattoo — but the edginess is toned down to create an altogether demure vibe. Yep, Rihanna looked demure. Whoda thunk it?
