According to a report in the Telegraph, RiRi opened the show wearing (drumroll, please...) custom-made Givenchy Haute Couture!
The costume in question was a black ruffled silk crepe cape with an embroidered collar — which she later tore off to reveal a parka embroidered with gold RiRi-engraved bullets, a black-and-white leather bralet and black silk-and-satin hot pants — and a pair of black-and-white leather thigh-high lace-up boots.

“Rihanna represents what young and amazing means today,” said Tisci in a statement. “She is punk and talented. She offers intelligence, energy and pure beauty. She is the face of her generation.”
We're not sure what's more amazing — Ri, herself, or the fact that she accessorized with couture goggles and a "RiRi" monogram shark tooth necklace. We'll let you make the call.
