Fashion Deets: Rihanna’s Harvard Foundation Humanitarian Of The Year Award Ceremony Monse’s Fall 2017 Gray Off-The-Shoulder Belted Dress and Matching Boots
Well, our girl has yet another accomplishment under her belt. Today, Rihanna was awarded Humanitarian Of The Year by the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations, heading to the prestigious university in a look phresh off the runway, no less. The “Work” singer skewed teetered the line of corporate and sexy in a Monse Fall 2017 Gray Off-The-Shoulder Belted Dress and matching boots.
This shoulder bearing number cuts straight under the clavicle with lapel like flaps draping across the bust. A wide belt cinches the waist while the thigh-grazing slit, that cascades into ruffled pleat, offsets the heavy fabric. Matching, thigh-high boots feature a full-length zipper running on the inner side of the boot, upping the “Anti” with this look and elevating its modern aesthetic.
I mean, is this even up for debate? Hot! The color and silhouette was event appropriate. And though she could’ve opted for a pantsuit…
…this is definitely more her style. And when you can pluck a look like this just seen on the runway two weeks ago, why not? The Bajan Beauty completed her look with minimal makeup, a diamond choker, a long, sleek ponytail, and a black Dior purse.Rihanna beamed as she received her award for her efforts in education via her Clara Lionel Scholarship Foundation, which awards scholarships for college to deserving Caribbean high school students. She also built a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados. Amazing is a gross understatement. Very well deserved, Rih Rih! Congratulations on receiving such a distinguished accolade and setting such a precedent for giving back!Rihanna completed her day by taking a tour of the university with Dr. S. Allen Counter (pictured), all smiles along the way.
