Rihanna hosted a star-studded bash to kick off NYFW

Never afraid to experiment with high fashion, Rihanna wore flared black trousers under the elegant gown and accessorized with a pair of black sandals as well as a series of layered necklaces, stacks of bangles and rings for an edgy finish.

Her beauty look was equally as eye-catching, with the Umbrella singer opting for a statement blue lipstick teamed with black winged eyeliner. To complete the look, Rihanna wore her gorgeous curly tresses up in a high ponytail.

While Rihanna was busy wearing her hostess hat, A-listers like Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams and Timbaland partied the night away.

The Diamonds hitmaker was not the only star to turn heads for the glamorous night out. Rising supermodel Gigi Hadid showed off her style credentials as she arrived rocking a striking red shift dress with a pleated skirt and black panel detailing, accessorizing with a black envelope clutch bag and black strappy chunky-heeled shoes. The blonde beauty wore her locks slicked back into a chic bun, and rocked a red lipstick for ultimate old Hollywood glamour.

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian continued her streak of high fashion maternity looks as she and Kanye arrived to celebrate the start of Fashion Month. Sticking to her favourite neutral shades, the Keeping up with the Kardashians star turned heads in a sleeveless top and ruffled skirt with a slit detail, paired with a matching jacket and boots.

Victoria's Secret angel Candice Swanepoel looked effortlessly cool in an all-black leather ensemble, teaming a biker jacket with a miniskirt to show off her enviably toned figure. The South African beauty accessorized with a matching pair of black leather ankle boots and a silver chain necklace, wearing barely-there make-up for a fresh-faced look.
