Rihanna's See-Through Top: Cool or Crude?

Splash News Online

Rihanna is looking sexier and sexier these days — take her revealing Armani ads and slinky Grammys dress, for example — but her most recent look may have crossed a line.

On Sunday, the singer was spotted at her favorite New York City eatery, Da Silvano, in simple boots, distressed boyfriend jeans and a black mesh shirt … that completely exposed her breasts and at times, her nipples. We’re all for fashion as a form of personal expression, but did she take her look too far?

Last week, the singer Tweeted a topless photo from the set of her “Where Have You Been” video, covering up with her elbow and a strategically placed prop. We adore Rihanna, but want to know what you think of her recent fashion moves.

This just reeks of desperation. Someone who is supposed to be talented shouldn’t have to try so hard to be relevant.

It’s not too far….. for a streetwalker.

are you sure of what you are seeing? Why are her breasts looking white?

Next we will be seeing her crotch and congratulating her. Go away

Cry for attention much?

Mary on

Yes, very. But what do you expect from her?

She’s a hoe bag and the bulk of her wardrobe is crude and/or gaudy.

While it’s not a CUTE top, assuming you cannot see her nipples (unless they’ve been blurred out), it’s essentially just underboob, or reverse cleavage. Not a huge deal.

And anyone who says she’s “asking for it” is a moron. Women don’t “ask for” or cause rape. Rapists cause rape.

I don’t like this look.I think it takes “sexy” way too far,I mean,showing your naked breasts out in public,way to show class and make sure women aren’t portrayed as a piece of meat!

Having said that though,I fail to see how wearing a mesh top showing the underside of your boobs and sometimes your nipples is any different than any other celeb who has worn see-through tops on numerous occasions.Luck has it that I saw a greek site’s story this morning showing pictures of multiple celebs,even those considered “classy” (for example Jessica Alba) wearing very much see through tops(and let me tell you,see through you did!).So no,it’s not just Rihanna taking it too far,it’s every single celebrity walking around with their boobs hanging out!

I’m wondering why she feels the need to dress like this and post topless pictures of herself. Could there be an underlying problem there?! She’s acting a bit strange. I really hope she isn’t going down the same path as so many young celebrities.
