With her fashion icon status and being the popstar pick for the Victoria's Secret fashion annual fashion show in New York last night, Rihanna had to pull out all the stops when it came to her catwalk closet, and that she did.
Pictured yesterday looking bedraggled with wet hair and scruffy clothes as she set out to rehearse for the upcoming lingerie extravaganza, Rihanna proved that she was queen of the runway as well as the stage.
And even as she went head to head with some of the world's most beautiful models including Miranda Kerr, Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne, RiRi gave them a run for her money as she provided the highlight of the live-music soundtrack in two showstopping outfits.

Pitching up on the Victoria's Secret pink carpet wearing a monochrome outfit of a silk black crop top and mid-length white skirt teamed with grey strappy heels, we got an inkling as to how snazzy RiRi's stage costumes were going to get.
Kicking off the show in a stunning black corset gown featuring a sexy thigh-high split to give the audience a glimpse of her super toned bod, Rihanna burst onto the catwalk belting out new single 'Diamonds' and 'Fresh Off the Runway.'

Pushing up her breasts and cinching in her tiny waist, Rihanna looked every inch the lingerie model herself as she glammed up the look with suspender stockings, elegant lace gloves and ostentatious Audrey Hepburn-esque pearls with matching pearl rimmed specs.
The 24-year-old superstar then confidently strutted out in a whole new underwear-inspired outfit of white lingerie underneath a sheer pink overthrow which she paired with gorgeous baby pink ankle boots. We have a serious case of shoe envy.
She tweeted from the event: ''1 big room, full o bad b**ches,'' insinuating she was enjoying the company she was in.

Keeping her hair and make-up the same through-out the star studded evening in slick 1940s waves and vampy plum lips with lined eyes, Rihanna was feeling gregarious as she grabbed a model's panties whilst she sashayed down the runway.
Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars also performed at the show alongside the A list angels including Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, but Rihanna sure held her own against the genetically blessed angels in her two gorgonzing outfits.
Top marks from us, RiRi!
