Taking a totally different lane of fashion than her choice at this year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards, Rihanna was glowingly amazing in her white two-piece Stella McCartney ensemble. Sporting Givenchy while “on the run” were powerhouse couple Beyoncé and Jay Z, while crooner Frank Ocean was dapper in a white tuxedo.

Solange, who opted to dress in color, was seen in a 3.1 Phillip Lim dress, and Janelle Monae looked stately in Tadashi Shoji.
