Rihanna's Grammy Dress Had 50,000 More Crystals Than Her CFDA Naked Dress

Work, work, work, work, work


Rihanna basically won the entire Grammy Awards last night when she came onstage to perform 'Wild Thoughts' with DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller. There were background dancers, slow, sensual choreography and one super-pink, super-glittery dress worn by Rihanna herself.


Rihanna's stylist, Mel Ottenberg, payed homage to the custom Adam Selman dress on his personal Instagram, writing, '@badgalriri tonight in custom @adamselman 275,000 crystals and a lot of love thank you Adam and my other ride or dies too without you i'm nothing.'

During the Grammys, Ottenberg also revealed on his Instagram stories that the pink dress had 50,000 more crystals(!) than Rihanna's famous CFDA dress from 2014.

Come on, you know the one:


Back in 2014, Selman told ELLE.com that he used over 230,000 crystals to create the sheer, crystal-covered dress. He said, 'We had people crystaling 'round the clock until 3pm the day of the event. It took 20 people to get it done. A lot of them didn't sleep! It was an amazing accomplishment and team effort. The effect was surprisingly lightweight and liquid.'

So whether it's a red carpet moment or a live performance, Rihanna always comes ready to work. Now, do yourself a favour and watch that Grammy dress in action:
