The News: Rihanna's Stylist and Costume Designer Talk Her CFDA Look

By now you've probably seen the CFDA photos and might be wondering how exactly Rihanna opted for that sheer, crystal dress. Well, her stylist, Mel Ottenberg, and costume designer (who also designed the dress), Adam Selman, are here to tell you the hows and whys of her nearly-naked look. 

The Look: Zara Adjustable Ring
Picking out fancy jewelry–ain't nobody got time for that. That's why I'm obsessing over Zara's goes-with-everything pearl ring. It's simple, inexpensible, and will make every outfit look like a fresh-off-the-runway look. That's a win-win, people. 

The Face: Le Labo Discover Set of Perfumes
In the event that you only have time to put on one beauty product in the morning, let me recommend perfume. Real talk: Nobody cares how good you look if you smell terrible. But if you can't decide which perfume to splurge on, Le Labo's tester set is only $30 and gives you the ritziest options. Try 'em all!

The Inspiration: Laura Kampman for Balenciaga Spring '12
Too lazy to find some fashion inspo? It's OK, you can turn your laziness into your fashion inspo. Just channel Laura Kampman in Balenciaga's throwback ads. Grab a structured outfit and lounge in it like it's NBD.
