If looking good is truly the best revenge, then Rihanna clearly scored a knockout here. (Check out this slideshow.)
When stepping out on the town newly single, a typical rule of thumb might be that sequined nipple accessories should be best left at home. Not so for RiRi, who, managed to craft a provocatively classy look that was grounded by a smart black blazer (via Just Jared)—an understated POW that most likely left ex-boyfriend Chris Brown quietly weeping with regret.
To pour more salt in his wound, she wasn't alone—scads of photos show Rihanna demurely sipping champagne with a tall, dark and handsome mystery man by her side, a place that was rarely left unoccupied as she flit and flirted amongst friends the entire night. Is Rihanna Dating Again?
But where was Chris Brown? He was busy cutting up the carpet like the smooth criminal he is at P-Diddy's Annual White Party in the Hamptons. Unlike his ex, Chris made a spectacle of himself by keeping a steady rotation of Rihanna look-a-likes at hand. Although differing accounts romantically link him with aspiring singer Teyana Taylor and Kanye West's ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, one thing’s for sure: try as he might to move on, it still seems like he's standing in the same place.
