At long last, Rihanna has arrived at the 2021 Met Gala, a few hours late but ready to serve, just as we’d expect from the Queen of the Ball.
Walking the steps of the Met alongside A$AP Rocky, Rihanna wore an extravagant Balenciaga plush dress with a skully worn over a sparkling headpiece. She complemented the look with jewelry by Bulgari and Nigerian designer Thelma West.
Her turn on the Met Gala red carpet was, as always, worth the wait. When the Vogue live coverage ended at 9 p.m. ET, many suspected that perhaps the singer/entrepreneur wouldn’t be in attendance. However, an hour later, she arrived, just as New York City began to thunder and storm.
At her side was A$AP Rocky, who wore an IRL blanket-like coat on top of a perfectly tailored tux. It was cozy meets couture and, well, a lewk. The duo proved that they are the new fashion couple to watch.
