On the¬†demure-to-daring continuum¬†of everything¬†Rihanna¬†has ever worn,¬†her nearly naked look from the 2014 CFDA Awards still falls at the wild end of the spectrum. It’s a look that not only went down in history as one the most memorable, but it also gave the man who designed the creation‚ÄĒAdam¬†Selman‚ÄĒa boost in mainstream recognition. Since then, the two have been almost inseparable.

But¬†for the designer’s¬†spring/summer 2016¬†show¬†at NYFW, RiRi was removed, both¬†figuratively and literally‚ÄĒshe was a no¬†show (though actress Amy¬†Sedaris¬†and¬†a bevy of bloggers found a stake¬†in the front row) and she wasn’t mentioned in any statements about his inspiration, though a¬†trip to Kauai explains the relaxed aesthetic and tropical¬†floral-happy pieces from his collection. Even so, we couldn’t help but draw comparisons between his new designs and RiRi’s¬†unpredictably (yet enviably) eccentric style‚ÄĒbecause at the end of the day, we all know she’s his forever muse.¬†

Selman closed his show with a sheer tiered¬†black number that was at once both sweet and racy‚ÄĒand reminiscent of Rihanna’s too-sweet¬†Giambattista Valli Haute Couture creation¬†that she wore for the 2015 Grammys¬†with its out-to-there tiers and cloying bubblegum pink hue.
