An emotional Rihanna stole the limelight at a women’s awards ceremony in New York when she dumped her regular androgynous style for a stunning floor-length mermaid gown.
The singer, who won the Woman Of The Year trophy at the star-studded Glamour magazine bash, went for a more feminine look in an ivory satin Stephane Rolland gown.
She admitted it was far too tight and impractical, but she obviously wanted something special to cap a momentous year.
The 21-year-old was being honoured by the U.S. edition of the women’s magazine for her career, fashion sense, charity work and her bravery following her assault by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
