We've got pretty used to seeing Rihanna in her underwear recently.

She's also got a current penchant for topless Twitpics but that's another matter.

So when Rihanna stepped out at the GQ Awards last night, we were pretty shocked to see the singer wearing a dress.

In fact, Rihanna's look was so understated we were taken by complete surprise.

She rocked up to the red carpet in a simple red vest dress, red shoes and a slick of red lipstick.

Ri Ri even kept her clothes on as she posted a Twitpic before the event, which is a blimmin miracle too.

Rihanna took to Twitter to post a picture of herself wearing patterned trousers, covering her face with her Chanel handbag.

We're hoping it's not directed at her definitely-not-boyfriend Chris Brown. But the fact she's not in her undies is progress at least.
