Rihanna wowed the audience at the 2023 Oscars with her performance of “Lift Me Up”. The song was nominated for an Oscar and is from the movie “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” The singer was introduced as “royalty in her own right” by Danai Gurira. She donned a sparkling Maison Margiela Artisanal outfit custom-made for her by John Galliano for Maison Margiela.
Rihanna’s emotional performance was met with a standing ovation from the audience. This includes her boyfriend A$AP Rocky. He was seen giving her a standing ovation and raising a glass to her performance.
The singer also made a fashion statement on the Oscars red carpet. She showcased her pregnancy in a daring style custom-made Alaïa leather band dress. It features a dramatic train and slashed cutouts at each hip, worn over a sheer turtleneck bodysuit.
She completed the look with Giuseppe Zanotti heels, enormous brown diamond drop earrings, a bold cocktail ring from Moussaieff, and her hair styled in a high-top knot with loose strands hanging out. Rihanna’s performance and fashion choices at the Oscars once again proved her status as a style icon and a musical talent.
