Photos of Rihanna in Marchesa Dress at the 2009 American Music Awards 2009-11-22 17:53:22

2009 American Music Awards: Rihanna

Leave it to Rihanna to bring on the drama. She's a standout in this black and white laser cutout gown by Marchesa. It's revealing, but not too much, and her white shoes add further contrast. Another winner for Rihanna?

You look like a votive candle holder with BAD hair. Really bad hair. Fix your hair, now.

The dress is nice and she is a very pretty girl, but that hair is horrible. Seriously

Horrible makeup and hair, the dress just looks stiff, more of her boring "edgy" nonsense.

Too over the top for me. I'm looking more at the dress than I am at her

The dress seems made out of paper. I can imagine how uncomfortable must be wearing it an entire night. The white shoes, really? And the hair is honetly hideous, not to say the fake eyelashes. She's a fashion victim.

ugh, seriously Ri? Those eyelashes??? Geez, she had them on the other day and boy was I hoping she wouldn't make the same mistake twice! It looks like she stuck her eyeballs in a vat of honey...and food coloring!

the style evolution of rihanna is pretty interesting. first she looked like every other girl, then she got very fashionable, and now it's gone way beyond and she's always looking like one of the girls on the couture-slash-impossible-to-wear-in-real-life runways. one or two unique touches make it fashionable. fifty make it tacky.

Agreed with Chica8a...that dress could be fierce, but I don't like the way it looks on her. I think it's the hair and the harsh makeup.
