“Rihanna Stuns at the Met Gala”
Sunday night, the annual Met Gala was held and the stars came to put on a show. There seemed to have been a trend of reds and whites, flames, and nude dresses….until Rihanna hit the red carpet. Rihanna completely shut down the red carpet wearing nothing but a yellow, fur-trimmed cape with an unbelievably grand train, along with a yellow headdress. The Chinese couture dress was handmade by Chinese designer, GuoPei, who is a go-to designer for Chinese stars. Rihanna expressed her love for the piece when she spoke with VF.com:
“I can’t really walk in it without any help—but it’s so worth it. I love this dress so much! It’s Chinese couture and it’s made by Guo Pei. It’s handmade by one Chinese woman and it took her two years to make. I found it online.”
“I was researching Chinese couture on the Internet and I found it.”
Rihanna received a lot of back-lash on social media for wearing the piece, but as we know, Rihanna is a trend-setter, and for this specific event, her dress absolutely slayed. You go, Rihanna!
