Rihanna Shone Bright like a Diamond in a Dress with 220,000 Swarovski Crystals

In case you missed it, Rihanna put on the event of fashion week with last night's Savage x Fenty runway show during NYFW. In typical Bad Gal Riri fashion, the multi-hyphenate shut down the red carpet in a bespoke dress by Alexandre Vauthier.

The haute couture dress featured a turtleneck, one sleeve, lots of ruching and—no big deal—220,000 Swarovski stones. The high-low hem was perfect for showing off a pair of coordinating lace-up stiletto sandals that were embellished with little stars. 

While the actual catwalk took place last night, us normal folks will have to wait until September 20, when the whole thing will be streamed on Amazon Video. In addition to the collection, the runway extravaganza will also include an A-list cast of performers and celebs.

Like who? Well, Halsey, Migos, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, A$AP Ferg, Fat Joe, Fabulous and Tierra Whack are all performing. Oh, did we mention 21 Savage, Alek Wek and Aquaria are also making special appearances? Same goes for beauties Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, Laverne Cox and Normani.

If you can't wait until the 20th, you can also shop the line on Amazon Prime right now. Yes, that means free two-day shipping on some of Rihanna's sexiest designs (but only for members!).

Life goal: to shine bright like a diamond Rihanna in this dress.
