Red hot Rihanna is a winner at Cannes music awards

Monday January 25, 2010

US singer Rihanna further cemented her status as one of the most exciting followers of fashion on Sunday, while also celebrating her musical success.

Arriving at France's biggest music awards in Cannes, the 21-year-old got cameras clicking in a show-stopping two-tiered gown by Jean Paul Gaultier.

The Barbadian singer chose a striking ensemble, comprised of a white embroidered gown lain over a shimmering silver sheath, at the NRJ's where she claimed the crown of best international female.

Rihanna's wardrobe was not the only talking point of the evening.

The Black Eyed Peas – who won best international song for I Gotta Feeling - were mistakenly named best international group, an award that belonged to German band Tokio Hotel.

A similar mix-up occured at last year's ceremony, when Katy Perry was wrongly given Rihanna's trophy for best song.

Lady Gaga was named international revelation of the year, and Britain's own Robbie Williams was named best international male, and also shared the award of honour with Beyonce.
