I’ve been excited about this year’s Met Gala since the moment last year’s ended. Now that the day has finally arrived, I have no qualms about saying that the event has truly outdone itself. This year’s unparalleled red carpet looks paid homage to Karl Lagerfeld, one of fashion’s most prolific designers.
That said, it’s not a real party until Rihanna arrives—and she was definitely fashionably late as the Met Gala’s very last arrival (by a long shot). She skipped last year’s Met Gala because she gave birth to her firstborn a mere 11 days after the event, but this year, she was thankfully able to walk the steps again. Now pregnant with her second child, Rihanna showed off her baby bump much to the delight of fans. She chose a voluminous look festooned with camellia flowers, a Chanel signature.
