*The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards honored pop icon Rihanna with the Fashion Icon award. 

RiRi stunned in a sheer dress covered in 216,000 Swarovski crystals. She wore it with a matching head scarf and pink fur. 

Vogue editor Anna Wintour presented her with the award.

And RiRi gave quite the heartfelt speech.

“I enjoy the most that you can tell so much about who someone is just by their style, the way they put fashion together,” she said.

She added, “I think fashion has been an outlet for me to express myself, to speak out, say who I am and to be very loud about it at times. Fashion should never be frustrating.”

But that’s not the only exchange between Wintour and the “Diamonds” singer. The two have been exchanging texts… well, sort of.

Vogue.com created a hilarious video of fake text messages between the ladies.

As they are friends, Wintour dresses more conservatively while RiRi is more provocative — their fashion representing their personalities, which are clearly different.

Nevertheless, they do share in common being fashion icons.
