In our quest for the perfect holiday attire, perhaps none has been as inspiring as this Rihanna party look. The singer, who is currently hard at work on her highly anticipated album "ANTI," took time off to throw a party at her favorite restaurant, Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, Calif.

And though she's been photographed many a time stepping into Giorgio Baldi in style, this velvet holiday look takes the proverbial cake. Wearing a simple velvet slip dress with gorgeous ties in the back, silver strappy heels and a contrastingly tough shearling leather jacket, RiRi looked both festive and rock-star glamorous. But leave it to the Bajan beauty to really knock it out of the park: she topped the look off with a giant hair bow. The oversize accessory lent an added couture-type oomph to an already hot look.

Otherwise, Rihanna has been busy hyping up ANTI with sneak preview posts that range from eerie to sexy. See a few below (and don't miss the fashion!).
