Rihanna’s newest CD “Loud” has been in constant rotation on my iPod for months as well as being high on the Billboard charts since its debut. She performed her newest single “California King Bed” on American Idol last night and looked fabulous while doing it.
She chose a rose velvet halter gown with a lattice-detailed front from Carlos Miele’s Fall 2011 collection. Her bright red hair is always an accessory, though she toned it down to a richer color and went for voluminous curls and flawless makeup. Rihanna always goes for edgy and daring, thus I love when she gets dressed up in something ultra-feminine and pretty.
Carlos Miele is his known for his beautiful and vibrant designs and for Fall, he produced those as well as some easy separates that evoked his Brazilian roots in a whole new way. He does glamorous ballgowns like no other and that is why fans including Sarah Jessica Parker, Beyoncé and Alicia Keys have all been seen sporting his designs. For Fall, he delivered that sense of glam in form-fitting styles including a cobalt and black wrapped dress on Lais Ribeiro and a gorgeous strapless printed number that would be perfect for the red carpet. The more wearable pieces in the collection came in the plethora of crepe jumpsuits and slouchy pants. The former had plunging necklines and were done in red and white and the latter, in velvet and paired with fur and stripes.
