Less than a week after Rihanna’s x-rated ‘Great Gatsby’-inspired gown, the singer took a step towards ‘demure’ at California’s latest awards bash.

The 26-year-old showed her face at Spike TV’s ‘Guys Choice 2014’ and those expecting her to bare all again were more-than-disappointed.

The award-winning singer chose a black midi-length, strapped dress as she arrived to collect the ‘Most Desirable Woman’ award from comedian Kevin Hart.

Rihanna teamed her dress with an au natural look, leaving her long hair loose.

The outfit was in stark contrast to her style choice at the 2014 Council of Fashion Designers of America bash last week where she was presented with the 2014 Fashion Icon Award by US Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

Wintour said that with Rihanna ‘the point is to be audacious – even jaw-dropping or button-pushing’.

And the star certainly did that with her sheer fishnet gown, sparkling with thousands of embedded crystals.

The dress revealed her breasts and many tattoos underneath and was teamed with a matching cap and long gloves and a pink fur wrap.

Rihanna’s next big event on the calendar is the BET Awards on June 29, where the likelihood is she could run into her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown since his release from jail.
