Rihanna wears Chopard to the 2017 LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers

Just four days ago, during the afternoon of June 16, Rihanna was in attendance at the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris to award the annual LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers to the chosen winner. Selected by a Jury of fashion’s who’s who comprising Karl Lagerfeld, Riccardo Tisci and Bernard Arnault, the chairman and CEO of LVMH himself, Rihanna arrived at Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris dressed in an unimpeachable head-to-toe Dior in a floor-length lace dress with a cleavage flattering plunging neckline and nigh scandalous thigh slit. The stylish ensemble framed her voluptuous figure, accessorised with a brimmed black hat, an oxblood clutch, strappy pointed toe ankle heels and of course, Chopard. How else is one elegantly appointed enough without the help of Chopard haute joallerie when your sole responsibility that Friday afternoon is to crown the fashion industry’s next up and coming young designer?
