Nobody does it like Rihanna, and the music and beauty mogul arrived at the 2023 Oscars looking radiant as usual. The soon-to-be mom of two walked the red carpet in an oh-so-chic sheer gown with a built-in bra.

The Oscar nominee arrived to the award show, held on Sunday, March 12, in a spicy mesh-and-leather number — and there’s so much to unpack. Save for the built-in leather bra and matching leather skirt, the dress was absolutely sheer. The Alaïa gown included a massive belly cut-out, undoubtedly chosen to show off Rihanna’s growing baby bump, which she debuted at her iconic Super Bowl halftime performance just last month.

The bottom half of her look was just as saucy as the lingerie-inspired bodice, featuring slits across her thighs and butt. The skirt, which wrapped around Rihanna’s hips, jutted out into a long train that gave the star a dramatic carpet moment. She accessorized with bejeweled teardrop earrings and matching rings.

Naturally, the Fenty Beauty founder looked glowy and joyful, rocking a natural makeup look paired with her signature bold red lip. Dramatic as her dress, Rihanna styled her hair in a playfully messy updo with loose, curled tendrils framing her face.

Rihanna is slated to perform her song “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever later in the evening and will likely change into another ’fit when that time comes. I, for one, am counting down the minutes.
