If you need a style icon, look no further than Rihanna. The singer has become one of the biggest names in the fashion world because of her advanced style sensibilities. So it wasn't too surprising, then, when she arrived at the the LVMH Prize for Young Designers to present the night's biggest honor.

The LVMH Prize is a pretty big deal. It is given to an up-and-coming fashion designer and the prize is massive. Winners take home about $335,000 and a year of mentorship with experts at LVMH, the parent company of Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, and Marc Jacobs, among many others.

For the special occasion, held on Friday at Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, Rihanna wore head-to-toe Dior in a floor-length lace dress with a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit. She capped off the ensemble with an oxblood clutch, pointed-toe ankle-strap heels, and a brimmed black hat worn over a star-print bandana. Because if you're going to be a presenter in a room full of fashion industry insiders, you want to look as chic as humanly possible.

But Rihanna's arrival to crown the winner was just the cherry on top of the festivities. This year's LVMH winner is French-Belgian designer Marine Serre, who beat out about 1,000 other designers for the award according to WWD.

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] What is it we love about Rihanna? Let us count the ways. She knows how to make an entrance. When Rihanna arrived at the Grammys at the least possible moment, she erased practically every other memory from the red carpet that night in this enormous two foot pink from Giambattista Valli Couture. She takes risks. For the Met gala, she arrived in this big yellow cape that drew comparences to Big Bird and and an omelette. But it was striking she choose to showcase the work of Chinese couturier Guo Pei in honor of the museum's exhibition on Asian art and fashion. She's a muse. Tom Ford's entire Spring show [UNKNOWN] fabulous was largely inspired by non other than Rihanna. She returned the favor by wearing his shockingly bejeweled pasties to an art benefit in LA. She dresses up as well as she undresses down. No one will ever forget the see-through crystal dress that Adam Selman made for her last year at the CFDA awards. But she also looks radiant in tailored jackets, often worn with nothing underneath. Her chameleonic nature made her a natural as the celebrity face of Dior. And what else? She's Rihanna, period.
