If anybody wins points for risqué attire, it has to be Rihanna. The singer went all out at the CDFA Awards in a shimmery embellished sheer backless halter. The see-through gown revealed Rihanna’s slender body as the pop star went braless with only a nude coloured thong to uphold her modesty. A shimmery head scarf, matching gloves and a pink fur stole finished off her look.

Bollywood beauties - now in the experiment mode - are ready to go the risque way when it comes to their red carpet appearances. Gone are those days when you would see your leading lady dressed in a more conservative manner. Today's heroines aren't scared to show the skin.
Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif have all done it. Here's a look at some of the high points of red carpet risque courtesy the tinsel town's fashionistas.
At the Grazia awards recently, 'Raaz 3' actress Esha Gupta picked up a dangerously high slit gown by Nikhil Thampi. Without an iota of doubt we can say that the dress suited Esha very well, but the slit which almost reached her waist, could have ruled against the actress. Nevertheless, Esha carried the outfit with grace. We like!
Actress Priyanka Chopra's favourite remains bodycons and dresses that show off her sexy back. (L-R) Priyanka brings a sexy back in Monisha Jaising dress; Priyanka was hot in her turquiose bodycon by 'The Source' and this red number by Victoria Beckham literally stole the show.
'Murder 3' actress Aditi Rao Hydari is also a big fan of high risk outfits. (L-R) Aditi cores a high in the Deme By Gabriella crossover top outfit; Aditi oozes oomph in the asymmetric Gaurav Gupta Couture and Aditi rocked the Mandira Wirk gown with deep neckline.
Probably one of the highest risk takers is 'Queen' actress and former model Lisa Haydon, who seems to have ventured in plunging necklines, deep backs and sheer outfits too! (L-R) Lisa Hydon scores the highest for mesh panelled gown by Kshitij; Lisa gets a thumbs up for the Deme By Gabriella crossover top outfit; She was a hottie in Namrata Joshipura gown; Looks comfy in Shivan & Narresh maxi with extensive cutouts.
Bollywood's numero-uno fashionista Sonam Kapoor is known for an out-of-the-box yet safe styling also ventured into the risque genre with this Prabal Gurung outfit with a plunging neckline. We like!
But you cannot always get away with the risk! Actress Jacqueline Fernadez here shows how her Emilio Pucci LBD suffered a bit of a malfunction on the red carpet.
Bollywood's reigning queen Deepika Padukone, who has received criticism for her fashion sense form industry peers, also shows the disadvantages of a seemingly lo-risque dress. But her two Van Heusen dresses - white and black (left and right) looked hot. But it was her DvF maxi with thigh high slit (centre) was definitely a hit number.
Bollywood's Barbie Doll Katrina Kaif took her title a little too seriously when she walked out for Dhoom 3's promotion in a flirty pink number. The dress and Katrina's over all look was good but the length of her dress may have been a slight disomfort. At another event, muck like Deepika, Katrina Tom Ford dress, otherwise low-risque dress, put Katrina on an edge.
