The Fall/Winter 2013-2014 haute couture shows in Paris have officially started. Yesterday, Chanel had their run, and the presentation was flocked by quite a number of notable faces; among them was Rihanna. We certainly didn’t miss the pop star. She arrived at the event in a head-to-toe Chanel outfit that somehow looked like it was meant for the bedroom.

Rihanna wore a sheer maxi shirtdress with lots of pearls, Chanel pumps, and a quilted Chanel handbag. Honestly, the frock was nothing special, but it was how she wore it that garnered attention — unbuttoned to the hilt to showcase lots of cleavage (note: she had no bra!) and lots of legs. Yes, you could say Rihanna literally turned the Chanel dress into something almost equivalent to lingerie.

So, here’s the question for you, ladies. Does being Rihanna earn her the right to get away with this look? Do you think she was able to pull it off? Or did she just put tacky on the table without even knowing? No doubt, she looked sexy given the amount of exposure, but was it the right occasion to wear something so … risqué? What are your thoughts?

While we don’t agree with Rihanna’s choice of outfit for the event, we do think that her floor-length Chanel shirtdress has a lot of potential. It’s not a showstopper, but, generally speaking, a maxi shirtdress is a versatile piece. Rihanna’s silky number can actually be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. If she wore it belted and a little more buttoned, she might have earned more nods. Would you agree?

Of course, this goes without saying that her look is a great starting point for other outfit ideas. Do yourself a favor, though, and keep it classy. Here’s a fabulous maxi shirtdress from Tucker that you can try to channel the singer’s look:
