Last night, Rihanna was a walking advertisement for Fenty Beauty, which celebrated its one year anniversary at Sephora in New York City. In a fuchsia Calvin Klein by Appointment gown designed by Raf Simons, the icon donned hot pink everything: eyeshadow, blush, lipstick, nails. But the real star of the red carpet look? The strapless silk dress’s thigh-high slit, which made for a striking leg reveal to end all leg reveals.
While Rihanna has had onebusyweek in the world of fashion, the beauty mogul made sure to show up for her makeup-minded moment, too. First came her bright pink lip color, applied in a matte finish and penciled in perfectly—no blurred lines, here—for a pout that paired well with her rosy cheeks and lids. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Fenty Beauty look without a hefty dose of her high-shining (almost blinding!) shimmer skin stick, which emphasized her stunning cheekbones. Her long brunette lengths, swept to the side and left in loose waves, made sure the moment was equal parts fun, chic, and sexy, thanks to the strategic showing of skin, which likely called for some shimmering body oil. The lesson? With some coordinated effort, pink can be pretty, and pretty powerful, too.
