Fashion Faceoff: Rihanna vs. Peter Griffin in the Same Sheer, Sparkly Dress

It would be awfully hard for anyone to top Rihanna‘s major style moment at the CFDA Awards Monday, in which she brought traffic to a screeching halt as she hit the red carpet in a completely sheer Adam Selman gown embroidered with hundreds of thousands of Swarovski crystals (see the designer’s Instagram video below), plus matching gloves and headscarf and a whole lot of chutzpah.

We thought it would be quite a while before Rih had any challengers to her fashion throne, but as it turns out, it was only a matter of minutes before someone took her on on her own turf. And that someone … is Peter Griffin, the clueless, tubby patriarch of the Fox animated sitcom Family Guy. Griffin was portrayed wearing the same lilac gown, gloves and stole, similar earrings and shoes, and the exact same undergarments (which is to say, very little).

And it appears Rihanna wasn’t feeling threatened by Griffin’s style statement, instead choosing to believe that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. “He gets it!” she Tweeted along with a split of the two wearing the same look — then she changed her Twitter profile photo to be Griffin in the gown. (Her Twitter cover photo remains her own rear view, however — she was kind enough to spare us the 180° look at Griffin’s behind.)

So who wore the look best? Tell us in the comments!

Is this her radiography?

I don’t mind celebs showing off their body but she does too much IMO. Remember when Jennifer Lopez wore that amazing Versace dress that plunged down below her belly button. It was great. But then the next year she followed it up with the see through gray number. It was too much. Do this once, then go back to more conservative.

Life goes on on

Peter of course.

Just Sayin' on

wow to the video, that’s some pretty intricate bead work.

Now this is funny. Personally, I find both of them repugnant.

Peetah wore it much better – that swag, that confidence, that posture! Unbeatable :)
