Rihanna for Glamour Magazine, September 2011, The Elaborate Romantic

1. Focal Point

The strong halter neckline brings an effortless and very appropriate emphasis to the throat Focal Point of the Elaborate Romantic.

3. Fabric

The lightweight, smooth soft Fabric works beautifully here. The contrast of white fur with black would work even better if the fur contained both white and black.

2. Ornament

The black band at the neck substitutes for a necklace in this glamorous evening jumpsuit. The metallic earrings and belt buckle match and also harmonize with the white fur.

4. Line

The narrow Alpha Silhouette with a wide Omega element at the bodice that is achieved by the glamorous fur is the ideal Silhouette for this type of Elaborate Romantic.

1. Focal Point

The first horizontal line of the underskirt of this fabulous ball gown indicates the lower hip Focal Point of the Elaborate Classic.

3. Line

The generally Alpha (fitted) character of the Elaborate Classic is apparent in the very tight bodice and is referenced by the narrow straps and back detail.

2. Fabric

All the important Fabric qualities for this Style are here: firm, balanced weaves; smooth and shiny finishes; and slightly heavy fabric weights.

4. Ornament

The White Flower in the hair, worn appropriately low at the back of the head, would be even more awesome if it did not match the ensemble.
