Rihanna in white Adam Selman at the ‘Battleship’ premiere: is she pulling an Angelina?

Here are even more photos from the LA premiere of Battleship last night – I already covered the Hot Dudes from the event here. This is just the fashion post, for what little “fashion” there was at the event. Rihanna wore this Adam Selman gown which… looks cheap. It makes Rihanna look cheap, but I think it probably do that on any girl. From the way Rihanna was posing in it, I don’t think she’s very comfortable. She probably didn’t like it but it was too late to pick another dress. Do you like her Angelina “Leg of Doom” pose? I kind of do. So many celebrity women are doing that now. The dress even looks like a knock-off version of Angelina’s 2004 Oscar dress.

As for the on-going concerns about Rihanna’s health and whether or not she’s feeling bad about everything that’s going down with Chris Brown (go to yesterday’s post to recap), Rihanna didn’t seem to talk about it while on the red carpet. She looks… okay. I’m not going to say “she looks healthy” because I don’t really know. What I didn’t mention yesterday was that after she unfollowed Chris on Twitter, she tweeted “Aw, poor dat #neaux1currrrr”. Meaning “no one cares” (I had to read another site to figure that out). And then Chris Brown tweeted, “Assumptions! I didn’t say any names so if u took offense to it then its something you feel guilty about.” And then Chris unfollowed Rihanna on Twitter too, because he’s a little bitty baby. A baby full of violent rage.

And here’s Brooklyn Decker in Christian Dior. Seriously, that’s the designer ID. I couldn’t believe it either, because much like Rihanna, I think Brooklyn is the kind of girl who makes expensive clothes look kind of budget. This sheer-skirt-panel thing has to end. Brooklyn has a great figure, but this makes her look all kinds of tacky. Plus, it feels so bridal/bridesmaid-y to me.

    Jeez, girl, could you have been any more naked?

  2. Eve says:

    Totally. Take a look at her smirk in the first picture.

  3. some bitch says:

    She looks like she has a flu or something, in which case I hope she feels better soon. AWFUL dress- she looks like she forgot to finish getting ready!

    • Zen says:

      I agree. She looks tired.

    • Tiffany says:

      From the neck down I think she looks fine (but the Marilyn white dress influence has been done so many times before).

      Her face looks really busted, though. Like she never went to bed the night before. Ditto for her hair.

  4. Chatcat says:

    Both dress’s are ugly and Riri always reminds me of a hooker with hollywood carteblanche…

    • janie says:


      dress’s = possessive of dress
      dresses= plural of dress

      …sorry I can’t help myself.

      • MW says:

        I hear you. Reminds me that I need to write my daughter an e-mail and explain the diff, AGAIN, between “their, there and they’re”, and “to, too and two” wouldn’t hurt, either. If I see one more of her Facebook posts . . .

  5. lucy2 says:

    I don’t like either dress, but I think Rihanna has no problem look cheap all by herself, no matter what she’s wearing.

    I know someone who was attending this premiere, but he’s kind of oblivious so I won’t get any good gossipy stuff.

  6. Bayarealife says:

    I’m in the minority on blogs… I love Rihanna. Definitely hope her recreational activities don’t go beyond a really good time. I was 23 before and I partied hard minus the crazy resources and I wound up in a very “noble” profession. I don’t hang people on a cross and read every rumor as gospel like our celeb crazed society is so apt to do. I enjoy gossip bc it’s entertaining but some commenters are so invested you’d think they were witnesses to everything. Such unprovoked rage and jealousy is not a good look. As far as chris brown…being the perpetual victim to abuse takes evolving…she will grow up.

  7. Alexis says:

    Well, at least she has the body to pull off the Angelina leg pose.

    • RuddyZooKeeper says:

      I was just thinking that at least she has nice gams, not a scrawny chicken leg.

  8. Bella says:

    I still can’t believe that this talentless bitch became so popular and successful. Who are these people who buying her worthless crap?

    • Orly says:

      So angry!

    • jover says:

      Right on bella she’s a music industry product and a musical illiterate; and as other posters have mentioned, when she opens her mouth she’s a complete and utter uneducated moron; I’m surprised her awful lip synching performance ‘ahem’ on last week’s SNL was commented on in this site; it was savaged on other blogs. She’s talentless, why pretend otherwise, an example that with enough marketing anything can be sold to much of the public.

      • Orly says:

        I agree with what you’re saying, jover. You just said it with less passion/anger than Bella.

  9. RocketMerry says:

    Aww, I don’t think the front of the dress is that bad…
    I think, overall, the tackiness here comes from:
    – the colour of the dress: too white, too bright.
    – the fabric: looks like elastic jersey, so NOT big film première.
    – the BACK of that thing.
    – her posing.
    – her smirk.

  10. AudreyS says:

    I kind of like her dress. She has a great body and it works in that dress. And I second the hate on sheer dress panels…

  11. grabbyhands says:

    She wishes. Sadly, any “Angelina” effect is ruined by her looking like she’s coming off a 24 hour coke bender.

  12. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Ya know the episodes of America’s Next Top Model where they have 10 minutes to slap on Cover Girl makeup and make a whole outfit out of a t-shirt to win a challenge? That’s what Rihanna’s dress looks like–like someone gave her a few yards of jersey, scissors, and 10min to make a dress.

  13. Veruca says:

    I think she should just save time & just start showing up naked. Since she’s so desperate for daily attention, I’m sure that will get people talking about her for at least 72 hours.

    And to those saying she’s just young and in that party phase and she’ll get over CB — I truly hope you’re right. I think this girl’s got some serious issues that could take her down a seriously dark path.

    I sincerely hope she gets help.

  14. Naye in VA says:

    It sucks that she doesnt have any decent influences in her life to say “hey, what you say on twitter, makes you look like an ass when people see you on the red carpet”. Like she needs some real friends to tell her to start examining and loving herself and letting THAT show before she looks to date again, and so she can realize that she is better than ruining her life behind some loser baby douchebag singer

  15. Monie says:

    He’s the baby, really Kaiser? I actually think he wasn’t off-base with his comment. It was a typical, stupid rap lyric and if she felt targeted by it then she must be admitting to that behavior. As my granny used to say, “The guilty always speak first”.

    • Day says:

      CB doesn’t have the authority to try and call anybody out on anything. I am no Rihanna fan but who is he to be concerned w/who she may/may not be screwing? It is none of his business. He has a chick so why does he feel the need to fly in a studio booth to talk about what his ex is doing? No, he needs to have a seat. He is so typical–want to have his cake and eat it to; he can sleep w/everything w/a pulse but she better not dare sleep around. He isn’t even her boyfriend.

  16. yo momma says:

    Angelina wore a similar dress a few years ago-difference is she looked CLASSY! not that rihanna would know what that is-say “class” to her and she’ll be like “oh i skipped those in school”.

  17. lonnie says:

    Did Brooklyn get some work done? Why does her face look really strange to me? Am I just not used to seeing her without copious amounts of photoshop?

  18. Gene Parmesan says:

    She looks so fkin hot!!!!

  19. skuddles says:

    RiRi looks downright sickly.

  20. Rihanna is strange looking. Sometimes she is so incredibly gorgeous, and other times, she’s goofy looking. She’s like the two face from “Seinfeld.” She has such beautiful eyes, though.

  21. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I don’t know what it is about her but I like the girl and I love her crazy shaved hair. The dress is too much. White looks amazing on her but it’d be nice to see her a little more covered up. She oozes sexy either way she doesn’t need the extra show.

  22. that girl says:

    nobody noticed that she painted her toenails white to match the dress? tacky much?
