If you're a Met Gala fan, you know there's an art to pulling off the perfect look. As a veteran attendee, Rihanna knows how to make the annual event's theme pop, and her style is nothing short of spectacular.
The "Diamonds" singer wowed on the red carpet in 2021, stepping out in an all-black Balenciaga overcoat and matching hat. The gown was custom by Demna Gvasalia and paired with voluminous ruffles. She walked in with rumoured boyfriend A$AP Rocky, who wore a dramatic quilt-inspired outfit by ERL.
Rihanna's Met gala style has changed dramatically over the years, from the embroidered Guo Pei gown she wore to the "China: Through the Looking Glass" exhibit in 2015 to a pink petaled Comme des Garcons confection in 2017 and a shimmering Maison Margiela homage in 2018. But even when she skips the gala, there's always something to be excited about.
Her fashion career has taken off since collaborating with Fenty Beauty, and Rihanna continues to create looks that are as memorable as they are bold. She was a standout on the red carpet at the Met in 2018, where she took the theme of "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" to new heights in a high-low skirt and headpiece.
She also nailed the "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between" shindig in 2017 by wearing an avant garde floral petal-themed gown from the label's autumn 2016 collection. And she was a shining light at the "China: Through the Looking Glass" shindig in 2015 when she made an unforgettable appearance in a bright yellow Guo Pei couture gown, which quickly became one of her most iconic looks ever.
