The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), along with Swarovski, hosted their annual CFDA Fashion Awards last night. This year's Fashion Icon Award was awarded to Rihanna byVogue editor in chief, Anna Wintour. Wintour praised the singer for her ability to tell captivating stories through the boldness and beauty of clothes. Rihanna thanked members of the audience: "the designers, the models, and everyone else who has inspired me." You can view her exceptance speech here.

Rihanna wowed in a "naked" dress comprised of crystals designed by ADAM Selman. Her stylist Mel Ottenberg told, "It's so naked. I don't know if it's shocking-I'm with her all the time, so my shock gauge is off, but I told her that I thought she was ready for this dress a while ago, and that I wasn't. I'm the prude, and I'm just catching up."

Selman added, "We definitely wanted to make it a little bit scandalous. The dress is just fishnet and crystals and a couple of fingers crossed. But fashion is about beauty, and the [female] body is part of that."
