Ease your hangover with the best videos from the past week…


1. Rihanna Twerking in THAT dress

This week, Rihanna was announced as winner of CDFA’s Fashion Icon Award, presented by fashion legend Anna Wintour. In true RiRi style, her outfit choice seemed to gain more media attention than the award itself. The singer arrived in an Adam Selman Swarovski encrusted gown, paired with a matching do-rag and gloves. She was naked underneath the sheer gown with a nude thong and powder pink fur wrap keeping her somewhat covered. After the awards she posted a celebratory video of herself twerking in the see-through dress on her very new @bahdgalriri Instagram account. It’s circling the Internet like wildfire and yes, we can understand why.

2. The Shoe: His Gorgeousness

Aliya Naumoff directs the short film for Jena Malone’s latest musical project, ‘The Shoe’. Shot in Upstate New York, the woodland location was edited by Richard Mosse who created a violet palette for the surroundings. Choreographer Celia Rowlson-Hall was hired as Malone’s co-star, the pair working in sync with slow nymph-like movements throughout the track.
