Rihanna’s name is practically synonymous with risk-taking fashion: From her sheer bedazzled dress at the 2014 CDFA Awards to her waist-high denim Manolo Blahnik boots, RiRi knows how to make a statement. She’s among the handful of style stars who can step out in a completely sheer outfit and have it be your typical Hump Day.

For an outing in New York City on Wednesday, the "Work" singer wore a green lace zip-up Gucci dress over a pair of black panties. Accessorizing with a Jennifer Fisher necklace, foil purse, and lace-up heeled booties, the star held her head high as she showed off her incredible body on the streets of Manhattan.

While Rihanna chose to largely forgo underpinnings, another fashion darling recently styled the dress in a decidedly different manner. Julia Roberts wore the same dress back in October at the 2015 InStyle Awards, but took a more modest approach and wore a nude slip underneath. InStyle’s June cover girl completed the ensemble with black loafers and square glasses, which gave the piece a very different tone.

One thing is certain: Both of stars looked incredible in the spring-ready dress.
