An emotional Rihanna stole the limelight at a women’s awards ceremony in New York when she dumped her regular androgynous style for a stunning floor-length mermaid gown.

The singer, who won the Woman Of The Year trophy at the star-studded Glamour magazine bash, went for a more feminine look in an ivory satin Stephane Rolland gown.

She admitted it was far too tight and impractical, but she obviously wanted something special to cap a momentous year.

The 21-year-old was being honoured by the U.S. edition of the women’s magazine for her career, fashion sense, charity work and her bravery following her assault by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown

Accepting her award from veteran supermodel Iman on stage at Carnegie Hall, Rihanna admitted she had to enter the stage from backstage because she couldn’t walk up the stairs in the outfit.

Wiping a tear from her eye, Rihanna apologised: ‘Sorry, I’m PMS-ing.’

She said: ‘I couldn’t possibly make it up here in this dress. As usual, I decided to wear the tightest dress I could find.’

Introducing her, David Bowie’s model wife said: ‘This year, we saw a different face of Rihanna.

‘She’s an indelible image of worldly pain and now, more than ever, I am more than impressed with her honesty and courage. She has taken her own scars and used them to create a new story of strength and awareness.’

Rihanna received her award just days after she broke her silence over her assault on U.S. TV show Good Morning America.
