Shockingly, the 'Umbrella' singer was pictured out in New York ahead of the glitzy ceremony completely covered up – and, looking very chic indeed.
It was certainly a contrast to her eye-catching, boob-baring, headline-making strut down the red carpet later that night!
Rihanna was snapped on Monday afternoon (2 June) looking low-key and lovely in ripped skinny jeans, a simple black jersey and black stilettos.
She kept her hair and make-up simple, and finished her look with a pair of oversized glasses, showing she can do dressed down and elegant just as well as racy and raunchy!
But racy and raunchy was the look she wanted at yesterday's CFDA Awards, where she was honoured with the Fashion Icon prize, previously awarded to stars including Lady Gaga and Nicole Kidman.
Rihanna, 26, sashayed down the red carpet in a see-through frock designed by Adam Selman, covered in 216,000 Swarovski crystals. The multitude of crystals, however, wasn't enough to stop us all getting a full glimpse at RiRi's boobs and behind…
Well, she certainly made sure she was the star of the show, right?!
