When Rihanna chose to go practically nude on the red carpet at the CFDA awards in June, you might say she broke the internet before, well, that other person did. But despite the shock, we couldn’t help but notice that another top diva has donned similarly revealing gowns long before RiRi. If you guessed Cher, good job. The star has been stepping out in skin-baring look after skin-baring look for the past 30 years (like at the 1988 Oscars, below).
In a true meeting of minds on the fashion site The Thick, Rihanna’s go-to designer Adam Selman and iconic costume creator Bob Mackie, 74, interview each other about how they went from retail to runway and what it feels like to be the kings of showing skin.
