If you asked us to guess what Rihanna would wear as a bridesmaid, we wouldn't conjure up images of floral, feminine designs. But Rihanna proved us wrong, as she has been lately with her edgy-turned-ladylike look. It seems that ever since she was named the face of Dior, she's put her Bad Gal RiRi rep on hold, at least for formal events.
This time, she was leader of the bridesmaid pack at her friend and assistant Jennifer Rosales's wedding, and it's easy to see why. Rihanna's Spring 2014 Badgley Mischka gown was drop-dead gorgeous. From the layers of tulle that gather together and form plunging neckline to the beading at the waist and the metallic floral embroidery that shimmers through the bodice, Rihanna's number was the epitome of elegance.
While Rihanna may have stolen the spotlight from the other bridesmaids on the beach with her statement pose, we think it's a lovely idea to dress a wedding party in varying tones of the same color. That's why we found 19 purple dresses just like RiRi's, so the next time you play bridesmaid, you can turn heads too. Maybe just leave that um, lollipop, with a friend during the photo shoot.
