Riven =/= Late game carry. You need some defense so that your damage has time to develop over a fight. Riven's full cycle of damage takes like 10 seconds to throw out, having a last whisperer and 2 bloodthirsters if fine and all but having 1 BT, 1 LW, a guardian angel and a frozen mallet will ensure that you are relevant in amidst all the aoe.

Riven isnt a late game carry.

Her early and mid game excel and your job is to win your lane and roam and shut down other lanes, preventing them from getting fed.

Late game, your job is to build off tank/dps and let tank iniate, ult and dash in, aoe stun, and spam your q's and hit everybody, then ult to finish off anybody low enough.

Infinity Edge is not a good item on Riven since you don't really rely on your auto attacks and since you build glass cannon on a melee anti-carry you would get 3-4 shot.

I personally typically only build 2-3 offensive items on Riven -> Blood Thirster/Maw of Malmortius/Last Whisper(Or whatever third is necessary).

Boots 2 and GA are a MUST.
Learn how to use her passive effectively and you'll still do fine damage against the champions you should be targeting in a team fight (The two-three carries on the enemy team).

But Riven does have a strong lategame presence.

It's just that Hecarim has a stronger one.
