Rihanna stunned in Chanel dress at the Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris.

Rihanna and Vogue editor Anna Wintour were reunited at the Chanel Show in Paris for the first time since the two had a major falling out at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Fashion Gala back in November. Relations apparently remain icy.

At the Met Gala, the 25-year-old singer not only broke one of the cardinal rules of fashion–never keep Wintour waiting.

The icy fashion editor, who is legendary for her vindictiveness, was said to be livid after Rihanna kept her waiting for more than 40 minutes while the singer had her nails painted before arriving at the signature New York fashion event.

Vogue hosts the gala along with the Costume Institute; draws A-list celebrities and fashionistas from all over the world.

“Rihanna planned to walk the carpet with everyone else but, sadly, her nails and manicurist took far longer than expected,” a source told London’s Mirror tabloid at the time.

“She missed her slot on the red carpet and left Anna in a frenzy. The pair had a heated conversation during the champagne reception,” the source added.

Wintour reportedly disinvited Rihanna from future magazine-related events and banished her from the publication, which is considered a fashion bible.

But the Barbadian singer continues to make inroads in fashion and stunned people at the Chanel Haute-Couture Fashion Show by wearing a sheer, floor-length Chanel sweater dress with nothing underneath.

Rihanna only preserved her modesty by fastening one button, but it was so revealing there was no missing the stud through her right nipple that looked like a six-penny nail (ouch!).

Wintour showed up at the show wearing a conservative two-piece suit and her trademark sunglasses.

Both Rihanna and Wintour were seated in the front row with the likes of supermodel Natalia Vodianova, “Great Gatsby” Director Baz Luhrmann, Virginie Ledoyen and the Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld.

Rihanna is currently on the road in Europe as part of her Diamonds Tour and is still burning the candle at both ends. “Went straight to the Chanel Couture show early this morning with NO SLEEP!!,” she tweeted. “It was so worth it!!!”
