Talk about a dramatic entrance: Rihanna, a Met Gala mainstay, and her beau A$AP Rocky made it to the Met Gala about two hours after most attendees walked the cream carpet.
Rihanna first concealed her look under an opulent fur coat while Rocky paired a red tartan kilt with jeans, a suit jacket and a skinny tie (not to mention, a pair of opaque black sunglasses, which were an essential component of Lagerfeld's daily uniform).
And then finally, after the carpet had cleared, she appeared: In a silky white gown and hooded puffer jacket, Rihanna closed out the Met Gala.
In an homage to the models dressed as brides who often closed out Lagerfeld's Chanel shows, Rihanna floated up the Met steps, her voluminous train flowing behind her. And ever the effortless cool girl, she completed the look with fingerless gloves and sunglasses with their own wispy lashes.
It was a fitting end to an event meant to honor one of the industry's great provocateurs who often leaned into the high drama of fashion.
