Rihanna dons a white flowery gown for Met Gala 2023
On May 1, 2023, Monday, the Diamonds hitmaker stepped out in a bridal-esque white Valentino for the fundraiser. Her white gown also consisted of a flower-adorned cape and a dramatic train. She completed her look with false eyelash-adorned sunglasses.
On the other hand, when we talk about A$AP Rocky, he was dressed up pretty casually. He opted for a Gucci suit jacket and a plaid kilt layered over a pair of shimmering jeans. He topped off his look with a pair of black sunglasses and black shoes.
Rihanna had a secret fitting before Met Gala 2023
A close source has told the media outlet Page Six that the Oscar nominee had a secret fitting for her Met Gala look at around 3 a.m. on Saturday morning. She wore a few pieces of jewelry by the luxury brand Cartier worth $25 million.
The Love on the Brain crooner’s bridal white gown that she ended up wearing on the day of the 2023 Met Gala was perhaps a fitting fashion to close out the evening. She paid a heartfelt tribute to the late fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld with her look as most of his shows ended with a wedding look.
Once, Rihanna went inside the gala, she removed the cape and revealed a matching rosette-adorned dress that put her baby bump on display. She took her sunglasses and posed for the paps on the iconic steps of the gala.
The Fenty Beauty founder is known for her epic Met Gala looks. Her makeup artist Priscilla Ono recently shared her must-have makeup products with the publication Page Six and mentioned that every Met Gala look is “special in its own way.”
She spoke about the prep process and further added, “Especially for the Met, I feel like there’s so much pressure on the Met and there’s actually a lot of pre-glam moments.”
Rihanna’s fashion sense has not faded while she’s expecting
Rihanna announced her second pregnancy at the 2023 Superbowl Halftime Show. During an interview with Vogue last year, she talked about her pregnancy and said, “When I found out I was pregnant, I thought to myself, There’s no way I’m going to go shopping in no maternity aisle.”
Then, the Bitch Better Have My Money singer went on to say, “I’m sorry — it’s too much fun to get dressed up. I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing.”
