If there’s one celebrity who can almost do no wrong on the red carpet, it’s Rihanna. Measuring 5ft 8 (172.7 cm), her style is fearless, and she’s never afraid to stand out. Rihanna wears a shoe size 9 (US) and is taller than the average American woman.

Her boyfriend, Rakim Athelaston Mayers, known professionally as ASAP Rocky, measures 5ft 10 (177.8 cm) and is slightly taller than Rihanna when she’s not wearing high heels.

“My weight fluctuates, but I don’t weigh myself every day. I’m 5ft 8in and weigh around 97lbs,“ she told Fabulous Magazine about her height in an interview.

In May 2016, the then-28-year-old singer attended the 2016 Billboard Music Awards at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Instead of going down the usual sultry, sexy route on the red carpet, RiRi chose to hide her curves under a vintage dress from Thierry Mugler’s Spring/Summer 1988 collection!

Her brown silk shirt dress — pulled straight from the 1980s — had a subtle sheen finish, loose sleeves, a cleavage-baring deep v-neckline and an asymmetrical hem that flaunted her toned legs.

Rihanna edged up the vintage frock with a few pieces of bling, including Hearts on Fire bracelets, a Jacob & Co. ring and a huge pair of diamond earrings.

She wore her short dark locks in loose waves with messy fringe and sported soft makeup with sultry brown eyeshadow and neutral lipstick.

Rihanna completed her look with a pair of multicolored mules by Manolo Blahnik that made her look much taller.

Rihanna, who took to the stage to perform her ballad, “Love on the Brain,” later picked up the Billboard Chart Achievement Award.

She swapped her vintage frock for a floor-length gown from Dries Van Noten’s Fall 2016 collection for her stage appearance.
