NEW YORK, June 3 (UPI) -- Rihanna certainly knows how to "shine bright like a diamond."

The 26-year-old "Diamonds" singer turned heads Monday evening in a sparkling, sheer gown at the 2014 Council of Fashion Designers of America awards. The dress was completely see-through and made with 200,000 crystals, and the star had only a pink stole and nude thong underwear to protect her modesty.

Rihanna was honored with the 2014 Fashion Icon award during the ceremony. The award recognizes her contributions as a fashion designer and icon, in addition to her partnership with the MAC cosmetics Viva Glam campaign. The council lauds the singer on their website as "fashion's most exciting ambassador in recent memory."
