The Rihanna see-through mesh dress from Dior is a triumph of modern style, walking the line between elegance and edge.

The Barbadian star is no stranger to the world of transparent dresses. At the 2014 CFDA awards, she caused a flurry of press coverage and Internet debate in a bare-everything translucent crystalline gown. Just like the CFDA dress, this newest Rihanna see-through look doesn't compromise on style. Its classic little black dress aesthetic is only heightened by the shock factor of its transparency.

We are living in an age where the female body is becoming increasingly celebrated and embraced by mainstream culture. Rather than covering up, apologizing or conforming to social dictates, this Rihanna see-through dress pushes the boundaries of what is "allowed" in modern fashion.
