While Rihanna's floor-length dress may not be as skin-baring as some of her other red-carpet numbers, this black reptilian-inspired Tom Ford creation was still a serious statement maker. The daring back drop and leg slit ensured that there was just enough sexiness, but the real treat was getting a zoomed-in look at the dress's crocodile-meets-lizard-skin texture. It was positively exotic, and the slick second-skin effect hugged her every curve. The only other accessory? Black talon-like nails, which she said made the prepping process a lot longer.
