Good Question: Is Rihanna's Mod Minidress A Thing Of The Past?

March 11, 2008 by SheFindsErin

SheFinds Reader Question: I MUST find a dress like the one Rihanna wore to the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards. I've been looking for something with a similar shape for a long time.

Answer: We've got good news and bad news. We'll break the bad news to you easy: Rihanna's kicky little frock is from Gucci's Spring/Summer 2007 Resort line, so it's no longer available. But don't despair. The super short swing-style dress you're looking for is still in for spring, so lots of ready-to-wear designers are showing them this season. And with bright colors and bold patterns making a big impact, Rihanna's notice-me look is easier to cop than ever.

The shape you like so much is slightly Grecian, featuring a high rounded-neck top and a short, full skirt (perfect if you're a little bottom-heavy). Dresses with belts that hit near the natural waistline, like Maggy London's printed silk dress ($151) and Forever 21's pleated jade chiffon dress ($27.80), emphasize a narrow waist, while short skirt length plays up long legs.

You can also get the look with a little DIY work, taming a flowy trapeze dress with a structured belt. Try pairing Bebe's swinging halter dress ($129) with their white patent two buckle corset belt ($69), or cinching Yaya Aflalo's strapless army print dress ($385) with the natural-toned double buckle belt from Linea Pelle ($275).

Want the rest of Rihanna's mod-meets-high fashion look? Step out in towering silver Stuart Weitzman Nitetime pumps ($315)—they'll make your legs look even longer. Define eyes with bright shadow, like NARS' single shadow in pretty purple Night Fairy ($22). And grab some real Gucci, Rihanna's original inspiration, in the form of their mirrored Tippy evening bag ($2,095).
